Second Awning for 2011 32bhds

Hello

I have the back kitchen option on my trailer

we have had the trailer out for a couple weekends already, both trips it rained, so we did not get a lot of use out of the back kitchen as water just runs into the kitchen when the door is open when it rains

I was thinking of adding a second awning to the back just by the outide kitchen , I was looking at the awning in a bag , used on tent trailers mostly

it is the cheapest awning i could find , i was thinking of the shademaker supreme 9 foot sized awning so it covers the kitchen and just past the back door , 10 foot model would work also

Any thoughts

Thanks

I'm cheap, so I'd hate to suggest this, but you may be happier in the long run if you buy a 6' awning, similar to what you have on the side of your trailer...truck campers have awnings that hang off the back of their trucks for the door, so I'm sure they still exist/can be ordered....

Here's my reasoning - the set-up may be a bit of a pain, storage can be a pain (especially when wet) and they're not as 'solid' in the wind...

I have noticed that the wind tends to blow water under the door from the sides, I didn't have a problem with it running in between the camper and the door. It would be nice to have an awning that would cover the kitchen and the back door to. I'm not sure what the framing is like back there, but maybe there is enough structure there to mount an awning to. I guess one other thing that may be an issue is the down rods of the awning, and if you'll be running into them trying to get in and out of the rear door.
