Awning rain gutter

Has anyone used one of these?
Looks useful to me.
It attaches with a Velcro strap.

This happens to us all the time when we go.
Two of those gutters would be perfect if it actually works.
Only problem is where to store them when not in use. Lol.

I had a video to upload here, but it something on the forum doesn’t work.

It keeps saying this after uploading in the “manage attachments” section
Please upload video in the video field.

And the “add video” section, there’s only a cancel button and no upload

Interesting idea. Be nice for my camp deck set up up in Keene. My problem I would not be able to put my awning poles up since they fit around the tube.
I can see using this in a storm and the wind picks up and by the time u unhook to roll up the awning rips off.

Do they have to be removed to retract awning? If so some times we barely have enough time to retract the awning. Before the wind removes the awning from are camper permanently!Still does look neat.

Ya... this thing is a bust.
It doesn’t fit the NorthPoint/Pinnacle Carefree awning because of the large end cap. I could force it to fit, but it’s not easy.
To install it you really need to get up high enough to pull the Velcro strap tight around the top of the awning tube. That would require a ladder or a picnic table.
It would come off easily, but again, you would have to get up high enough to get to the top of the tube...so if your in a rush to roll up the awning, it ain’t happening.

Back it goes.
