Awning shade for North Point 377RLBH

Hey all. Where we do our dry camping, we are often facing the sun for a goodly part of the day, and the under the awning space gets hot. So I was thinking about something like this https://www.amazon.com/dp/B013HG2TW0...I3SJJRQ8JS4Y7J but don't know if it will work.

We pick up our rig next week, hopefully, so I can't look, but thought I'd see if anyone else is doing this.

We use one every time we go to the beach for the week, and I feel it helps considerably.

How does it attach to your awning and can you roll it up with the awning?

I attach ours by using some clips that slide into the tubing of the awning, then use S clips to attach the two together. I'll see if I can find a link to what I'm talking about.

And no, you cannot roll it up in the awning. But, you can roll the clips below in the awning, just have to remove the S clips. I keep the S clips attached to the shade.

Does your Jayco have the lightweight Care-Free electric awnings?

I have one for my unit and it slides in the track and I can roll it up with the awning at night or when we leave the site. It does work well when the sun is on an angle that gets under the awning and to the unit.

There are a few versions out there. You have the hook version link up top of the thread. I had ordered that but did not like it due to the fact that it bunched and would not lay out flat. Also I had to take it off every time the awning had to come in due to the hooks. The version I have is the tube mount and it's the best option IMHO.

I would strongly recommend waiting and measuring the exact size you need as they come in various depths. See how your site sets up, measure the scope and then decide on one.

This is like what I have. 19' Brown RV Awning Shade Drop Shade Area Under Awning | eBay

Not exactly sure of the "lightweight Care-Free" part, but electric yes. I'll have to check style and manufacturer next weekend when we are back down.

We pick up our rig on Friday, so we'll measure and see what we need. Gonna also check the type of awning, given that some of the brands have issues!

My brother in law has one of these that 3'senough has. It also slides in the track for easy roll up. He swears by it.
