Let's cover the subject of awnings. Specifically the awning on your RV. They aren't just a roll-out shade for your home or RV, one that provides you with increased comfort and enjoyment during a fun camping trip. These collapsible canopies are such an essential part of home and RV manufacturing that they are represented by international trade associations and national membership groups. If you thought they were boring then you are about to be surprised. There is far more to awnings than you would believe.

Temperatures – While air temperature outside is static and remains regardless of shade, etc., your RV's inside temperature can skyrocket. Many factors feed into internal temperature fluctuations, from insulation and construction to how well your recreational vehicle is vented. One way to keep your RV from heating more than it should is by adding an awning, which is an easy and relatively low-effort way to upgrade and increase the enjoyment you can get from your RV. If your shelter is located above your windows and doors, it can help to reduce internal temperatures by 8 to 15 degrees.

Reducing Solar Gain – Solar radiation through your windows accounts for almost twenty percent of the load on your air-conditioning. The addition of an awning will substantially reduce this radiation bleed into your interior. An awning will prevent sunlight from shining directly into the interior of your RV. By doing so, the interior of your RV will remain much cooler. Preventing sunlight from shining directly into your RV interior can also help protect carpeting and furniture from fading!

Cost Saving – Tied in with reducing temperature means your fans and A/C are not working as hard to keep your unit cool. Having your A/C work less often and work less hard means that you will be using much less energy than you normally would. If your temperature mitigating devices aren't working as hard, then you're saving money. It's just that simple. With the savings you can achieve, you would be crazy not to have an awning of your own, especially one equipped with our stunning RV awning fabric!

As a plus, this model of camper awning also has heat-welded (heat-sealed) seams rather than sewn seams. While other awnings have seams that are sewn together, these heat weld seams make these awnings more durable, more reliable, and more able to handle what RV life throws at it. The heat-seal enables the awning to withstand temperatures down to -25°F (-31.67°C) without degrading or cracking. Because of this, you won't have to worry about what will happen to your stored RV in the winter or whether or not you'll be able to use your RV awning when you go cold-weather camping. The heat-welded seams are reinforced with a heavy-duty 13.5 oz base vinyl (1/16" thick), which adds to the durable nature of the awning. Leak-proof as well, these seams are not going to let in water or rot over time, unlike the sewn seams of other models of awning. Adding reliability and stability at those critical points of the awning, these seams don't leave you wanting more. If you're looking for an awning that'll last you years, heat-sealed is the way to go.

Adding an awning to your RV or upgrading to a better quality awning like the 17' Awning from RecPro is a sure way to make certain that you keep cool and save money this summer season and every season!
