This is the third awning I have on my vehicle and so far I think it is the best yet.
Previous two were Hannibal and then Eeze-awn .

Problem I had with previous two is the aluminium arms always smear and makes the canvas black. The eezy-awn also rattled a lot.

This one has stainless steel arms and bracket. Has a very strong construction and is very neat. We tested it yesterday afternoon in a moderate west coast wind and the wind was no problem.

When I ordered mine I ordered an extra one to sell in the shop. So there is one extra in stock in Brackenfell.

That awning looks awesome and strong. Probably on the heavy side as well?? First thought the rods are solid but if my eyes don't betray me, there is an end cap visible on one of the rods?

If you look at the cost of stainless steel and the cost of having the canvas done, I doubt you will be able to do it much cheaper.
Will be interesting to see what the difference is if you get quotes.
