By: Gregg Hall

If you enjoy going camping in your RV then you know what a camper awning is and how much they are needed while traveling in an RV. An awning is a great way to extend your living space and provide an outdoor space that feels like the comforts of indoors. Your awning attaches to the RV and rolls out to provide protection from the sun and weather elements.

Most people who own an RV also have awnings attached to their RV to provide the protected space they need while lounging in the afternoon heat. The awning is a tough weather resistant accessory that will last for many years if it is protected and taken car of. When your awning is not in use it is important to roll it up and return it to the side of your RV. This is to protect your awning from being over exposed to the sun and having the colors fade away.

If you have an old owning that you would like to replace there are a few things you will need to do before you are able to order your awning. First, your going to want to measure the width and length of your awning and decide if you want a new awning that is exactly the same size. Often times people will choose to get a longer awning when it is possible, this way they can further expand their outside coverage area of their awning.

When ordering your customized RV awning you should look at several different types of rollers, fabric, and arms. These three pieces will combine to make the perfect awning for your RV. After deciding on the design of your awning it is time to order your new awning. You will need to have your measurements and style choices ready for the sales associate. Make sure to order all the necessary parts and pieces that are required to install the new awning after the old one is taken down.

After your awning order arrives it is time to measure, measure, measure. Especially if installing the new awning is going to cause you to drill anything, it is an essential idea that you know your measurements before you get started installing the new RV accessory. Another important idea that does not always go over well, is to look at the directions. Most awning kits will include specific instructions on how to successfully install the awning.

After you install the awning it is time for you to sit back and enjoy your new built in shade. No matter how rainy or sunny the day is, you will always be able to find a comfortable place to relax outside of your RV.
