Awning Protector

Hi everyone, I was walking around the campground today and noticed a Flagstaff camper which seemed to have some kind of aluminum or other metal that was attached to the awning itself and when it rolled up, it protected the awning. I think it was a Dometic electric awning. I have a Carefree electric on my Eagle. Does anyone know where I can buy something like this? I'm really looking at something permanent that I can travel with, not something that snaps on while in storage. Thanks, Terry

I think I've seen replacement awnings at Camping World which have that feature.

A&E awnings can be ordered with the WeatherShield. I don't believe it can be added to an existing awning fabric.

I was looking on COC website and they say that a product called Unigard is avaible as a accessory for the electric awning and Alumigard is a accessory for the manual awning. It just states see your dealer so it sounds like it is avaible but can't confirm if you have to order it with a new fabric. I would like to do the same if the price was reasonable.

I asked my dealer service manager, 25 years in the business, about these and he said to save your money. They look like a good idea, but he doesn't see any longer life from the awning material with one vs without one.
