BY THE WAY . . .
If given a choice, I would hang a Carefree awning... my reasons:
They were awesome to work with
They replaced 2 awnings after 4 years, GOOD FAITH..I just had to install
The awnings ( in my opinion ) were easier to pitch water
The Carefree were pitched alba greater degree to allow water to run off.
My Dometic is just about flat, when I complained to the factory ( dometic) about collecting rain during a light rain , I was told they were NOT made for use in rain, they were considered for SHADE....
