Awning shade screen

Just curious if anyone has a shade screen that attaches to their awning and how they like it. I was looking at one from Carefree but wanted to know your experiences. Thanks!

Unless your looking for a color, save yourself some $$$ and just go to harbor freight and buy the mesh ones they sell. Only available in black but i have bought a few for around 30 dollars each

I bought a sun shade with grommets every 2 ft on line for about $24. I'll be trying it next week and if I don't like it I'm not a out much. I couldn't justify the cost of theirs if it ends up being something that gets in the way more than it helps

Awning shade screen

Thanks for the replies. Iím not looking for any special color and was leaning towards black. Also not set on the brand I posted a link to.

Eagleback, Iíll check harbor freight.

Woodworker, if you like yours after using it pls post up the link of what you bought. Iím going camping again in a few weeks to the same spot I just got back from and could have used one. So I may not be able to wait for your results but would still be curious...

It'll be the 29th before I set it up. And because the access to the slot in my roller tube is not accessible without removing the palstic cover on the end I bought some of these things that are made of fabric that slide into the roll tube. You can take the metal hooks out when done and roll the awnening up with the fabric straps still installed. We'll see.

I kept my Carefree sunshade from my prior Eagle and have used it a couple times with my new Jay Flight......., it's nice to have when the entry side of TT is exposed to the hot PM sun. An added benefit is that it stabilizes the awning should the wind pick up.

Solera has an awning sun shade that you slide a small section (around 12" wide) of the screen fabric into the roller tube and it rolls up with the awning, don't have to remove it. The small section of screen fabric has a zipper that the larger screen fabric attaches to. Saves installing/removing the entire sun screen from the awning roller tube every time.

We use a Carefree sun shade and it's been a lifesaver during the summer months.
