Hey there, My awning bag is nearing the end of the road, it's been fixed a couple of time, new rubber attachment liner, and the bag has rips at both ends where there zipper makes the U-turn on each end. I know I could get the bag fixed, but the closest (and only ) canvas repair shop for this sort of thing has an owner that's an A-hole, and don't want to give him more business if I can avoid it. So this go me thinking.... what is the difference between a TT awning, and the Highwall? The TT type have a crank or remote open feature, which is nice considering the highwall awning is nightmare, even with two people. I started thinking, is the only difference the connection point/sliders on the sides that support the awning as it moves out? or the type that have a fixed position and rotate out? All they need to do is be modified so the poles/support bracket can collapse the 4 feet needed to accommodate the roof. This modification to the brackets could be done with two sized metal poles, one inside the other, with holes to pin them once the top is up and awning is out. When closing, retract the awning, pull the pins, lower the roof. any issues with this idea? I think I can pickup a used TT type manual awning pretty cheap. Thanks. R.
