I have a carefree power awning and like it. Haven't had any problems with it so far....touch wood. It is adjustable and very easy to operate.

I like our power awning, but really it is just one more electrical device that one day will have to be fixed. If we had the option, we would have ordered a mechanical awning.

Really, I really liked my Add-A-Room LTD and thought the quality was great. Owned it from 2003 until 2011 and it held up fantastic, even had the hard door option which is quite rare.

I love the power awning, but I am concerned about what I read with the wind damage. It would probably make sense to get the auto retract option, but I have other camping priorities.

I bought one in 2010 and it was trashed in 2010... my Patty-o-room is still going strong (used it for 5 years no problem)... will try to "cross breed" the two...

In just a couple days the awning poll has almost caught the truck poll in votes. Hardeee.

We have a manual awning, but after moving up from a pop up with a roll it up by hand awning we thought we were in Heaven with this one! We've had no problems with our awning, it's easy enough to do by yourself.
