I had the Winnie version of this coach. The area under the awning as designed is very small indeed. Especially with the door effectively cutting it almost in half. Than add a step on the ground if you're on a uneven spot and you have a lot of precious real estate gobbled up.

I avoided a slide out on the passenger side of the coach for this very reason. If you get another awning to work, please post a pic !

Nothing is free, but when I've had it done, it has been less expensive than I thought. If a dealer has a down side of the year, many times they will give a break on labor, to have the work. Shop around.

Consider what the extra weight on the top outside edge might do to the mechanics of the slide. The slides are very precisely balanced so as not to exceed the capacity of the rails.

The Eagles, North Points, Pinnacles, and many other 5th wheels come with a second awning.
I have one. It's no big deal. It was an option that brought me to the Jayco.
My last concern was if my site wasn't big enough...?
I wouldn't put it out then.
I would be concerned on what the screws go into if I was adding one.

That's true about what it's gonna bolt into. The slides are framed and there's really nothing behind there. Unless they screw them into the inner wall of the slide...I don't know.

Maybe...an umbrella???

We ended up getting an 8 X 8 canopy... About 3 minutes to put up, 79.99, and comes in it's own bag.

I would not bolt it to a slide. If I was going to add an awning I would also make sure it was attached directly to a wall stud or the top plate. Those things exert a lot of force when extended. Ive see pics of steel bumpers ripped off of campers by 20 lbs of bicycles.

After reading all of this, I was thinking the same thing. Seems like it would be more adaptable to any situation.

One downside I see is that putting an awning there would likely eliminate your ability to add a Slide Topper... Probably a matter of preference but the topper has more value to me as it reduces/eliminates the need to get up on the roof and sweep out the slide at every stop.

An awning that comes over the slide and functions as both a topper and a sun shade would be ideal, but from you photos I suspect you do not have the real estate on your walls to pull that off.
