Installing an RV Awning Shade

by | Oct 13, 2018

We have put this purchase off for too long. Joan and I have talked about purchasing an RV awning shade for some time. This year in Florida, the morning to mid-day sun made our patio time impossible. We would just cook due to the angle of the sun and the height of our awing.

Now we are in the North Georgia mountains with a great camping spot, but the sun sets on the awning side of our camper and again our outside time has been limited to the early morning hours.

The fix was to install an RV awning shade. We chose one by Carefree. The Amazon rating were very good and we were able to find a size that fit our camper awning. The installation was very simple, taking about 30 minutes.

The results are perfect. This shade isn’t 100% blocking still allowing a view, but most of all, prevents the hot sun from baking our sitting area.
