Vintage Trailer Awnings

Marti's Vintage Trailer Awning FaceBook

Awning fabric

I have spent a huge amount of time searching for hard-to-get Sunbrella colors. Some are discontinued, some I've bought at roll price and on others I just got a great deal. Over the years I have accumulated quite a stock of top-of-the-line Sunbrella and Dickson fabrics. These are all 100% acrylic canvas, UV & mildew treated, water resistant, fade resistant. Please take some time to look over our in-stock fabric samples.

Scallops on all three sides (standard order)

Typically these have a 9” evenly spaced scalloped edge valance that wraps around all three sides.

Scallops on the leading edge only

These are just that, a 9” evenly spaced scalloped valance on the outer edge only.

The scalloped edge is typically an evenly spaced scallop, if you prefer a flat edge, I can do that too.

The scallop trim

I use a 100% acrylic braid color coordinated to your fabric to finish the edges. I do offer a 3” synthetic bullion fringe for an additional cost. This adds a lot of character to the awning, but is totally your preference. I don’t have this fringe available in all colors, please ask for choices if you are interested.

The overnighter

T@b trailer awning

This is a very small awning just for a quick shade or shelter. Some folks with large trailers/awnings, use these when they are just stopping for the night to avoid putting up their larger awning in the rain or for just a quick layover. Others use them on their smaller trailers, T@bs, teardrops etc. These get the scalloped edge on the outer edge only. They usually measure about 5’ x 5’.

Teardrop galley awning

Marti's Awnings – Tear Drop Awning

A teardrop galley awning offers nice, easy shade and shelter while you are cooking.  It is attached either at the bottom edge of the galley lid (usually with a strip of awning rail), or installed with an awning rail or snaps at the hinge point. You decide on the length of shade/shelter you want. Contact me for a price.

Teardrop cabana

Here’s my newest “changing room” for teardrops and tiny trailers! Made from your choice of Sunbrella fabrics, it’s water resistant, UV treated, etc. This cabana structure is like a small, 4' x 4' EZ-Up that adjusts for height and folds up very compact. You can take the sides off separately and leave just the top shade during the day, or use it like this to stay dry and out of the wind. The sides can be configured to open on any side you choose. Add a matching awning for your teardrop and you’re ready to go! Cabana is $350.00, including the structure and Sunbrella canvas.

Poles

Travel trailer awning poles

It is very important to use a sturdy, heavy-duty pole to support these awnings. On a sunny day you might be okay with just two poles on the corners of the small awnings, but if the wind comes up these turn into large sails and will quickly be out of hand unless they are tied down sufficiently.

I sell an awesome heavy duty adjustable aluminum tent pole. These are sold separately from the awnings because some folks have their own. My poles have a large rubber foot, a 3” drawn tip, meaning the one end is squeezed down to form the tip, not a separate piece to bend or break. They have a machined collar with a large thumbscrew that makes adjustment very easy. These poles sell for $32.00 each and includes shipping.

Rope tighteners

Trailer awning rope tightener Marti's Trailer AwningsAdd these nifty 4" pieces to the rope between the awning and stake to make an easy job of tightening the rope and keep your awning taught and sturdy. $3.00 each.
