I know he is talking about that but why would it bend when rolled up and stowed? Is it really that flimsly that driving down road will bend it. I have seen many bent ones and the owners said wind or rain was the cause. If that is the case my new FBTS has a 20 ft awning

Yes, the aluminum tube is that flimsy. I've had the long dometics over 20' and just the bouncing going down the road caused them to start sagging in the middle over time. Didn't affect the function, just not as appealing to the eye. Kind of a judgement call or matter of preference. I don't have the cradle support on ours now, but it's only 18'.

Ok thanks. I will keep an eye on mine. Really do not want to drill into a new Rv under warranty to mount a cradle. Hate to have a wall delaminate and say it from me. If it looks like their might be a problem I will pay dealer to keep warranty good
