Had a 197 with a manual awning. Never again! The one and only time I put it out was more than enough to convince me. Last year we traded for a new 197, and it had a power awning. Awesome! Push a button - out it comes. Push another button - back up it goes! I know the gizmo gurus will be poo-pooing the idea of a power awning, but they can poo all they want.
Our new 197 also has a pull-out (or whatever the politically correct term is). Huge, huge difference in the internal layout as well.
Did i say I like our power awning?
