Mariah Awning

After meeting the Retrac family at G@TG and seeing their awning, we decided that the Mariah awning was the way to go for us. So we got in touch with both Dean at Mariah in Ft. Worth and and Danny at Danny's Campers. As luck would have it, Danny had one that had been installed on a camper in his inventory, but was removed at customer request for delivery - and was discounted because it wasn't technically "new" (althought it had never even been deployed) - DISCOUNT, we'll take it!

Here's how the Scout looks with the new awning installed. A little heavier for lifting the roof, but still very manageable.

Here's the new awning - we'll need to mess with pole height and tension, but we both agree that it is better than anything we would have concocted...and we certainly have been noodling on designs over the past year.

Another view - Morgan gives it the seal of approval!
