There are mixed opinions on slideout awnings. Some like them others don't. I like them and have had them on the last 3 rigs. On my newest Jayco, I do not like they way they are installed. They do not seem to have enough angle to allow water to run off and tend to catch and hold water in them.
The main reason I like them is they keep debris from the top of the slide and prevent me from having to climb on the roof or a tall ladder every time I break camp. Most dealers will install them for about $300-400 or so per slide. I would ask if they can be installed so they do not have the problem I tried to explain above.
