*** We currently have one of these 9'9" wide by 8' deep Premium Pole and Rope Awnings in Granite, in stock and available to ship immediately. This awning was returned by a customer who received it but did not like the color so they returned it to us. It is brand new and has never been set up or used. It comes complete with all the ropes and 3 poles, as well as the storage bag. We only have one of these returned awnings in stock right now, though, so if you want it, don't wait! Once it's gone, it's gone. ***

The Search for a Quality Vintage Awning is Over!

A period-appropriate awning can make a good looking travel trailer a real show stopper. The problem vintage trailer owners face is that most awnings today just don't look right on a classic trailer.

If you've looked around, you know your choices are limited. Today, most awnings have horizontal rather than vertical stripes. That's just-plain-wrong for vintage trailers. In the middle of the 20th Century, trailer awnings had vertical stripes (or in rare cases, no stripes at all).

Some trailer owners install modern awnings with large metal arms permanently mounted on the trailer. They may be convenient, but they detract from the classic look that many vintage trailer owners love.

Finally, we have the solution. To meet the growing interest in period-appropriate trailer restoration, we're now offering gorgeous vintage-style awnings made with premium fabrics. Without a doubt, these are the finest vintage-style awnings available anywhere.


You're justifiably proud of your vintage trailer. After all your hard work, make the most of it with the right awning.



What is a Pole & Rope Awning? And Would it be Original for My Trailer?

Vintage pole & rope awnings were used almost universally from the 1940s into the 1970s. They are installed only when in use and are taken down and stored when traveling.

The trailer-side edge of the awning is mounted by sliding one edge of the awning through the existing awning rail on your trailer. An awning rail is a C-shaped aluminum extrusion running the length of the trailer on the curb side above the door. If you do not currently have an awning rail attached, you can buy a "standard awning rail" at almost any RV dealer.

In the old days, the awning edge had a rope sewn into its hem to give it the profile that would hold in the C-shaped rail. With ours, a plastic bead is sewn on the edge of the awning in lieu of the rope. The bead is a big improvement because the fabric doesn't touch the aluminum rail.


A SECTION OF AWNING RAIL WITH AND WITHOUT AWNING INSTALLED


The opposite outside edge of the awning is supported by telescoping aluminum poles, which are tethered to stakes.

A sure sign of whether your trailer should have a pole & rope awning is to see if it has an awning rail installed.



Design of Our Awnings

Our awnings are period-appropriate, right down to the beautiful scalloped valances on three sides. Stripes always run perpendicular to the trailer in the true vintage style. All stakes, poles and ropes are included. The quality two-part aluminum poles are designed with strong locking mechanisms that won't collapse like cheaper poles do. Stakes are steel, and ropes include line tighteners to make set-up a breeze. Your awning will even include a vinyl storage bag with velcro closure to keep your awning clean and dry when in storage.

The Fabric
We scoured the earth looking for awning fabric of exceptional quality and also one woven in the colors and patterns of 1950s and 1960s awnings. We found the perfect fabric in Dickson. Dickson is made by Glen Raven Custom Fabrics, LLC, the same company that makes the well-respected Sunbrella; fabric. In fact, Dickson is the European version of Sunbrella and is a nearly identical fabric. It is a 100% solution-dyed acrylic, giving it bright, clear colors that appear the same from either side. In the solution-dying process, the color becomes an integral part of the fiber by being added when the fiber is still in a liquid form, giving the awning fabrics unbeatable colorfastness without fading or washing out. We love this fabric for its rich colors, soft feel, strength and water repellancy. We know you will too.
