I picked up a Jayco 2008 1207, but it has no awning. Prior owner says it was destroyed in a storm.

Dealer quoting me nearly $500 plus shipping for the awning and all hardware, but seems to suggest that the Jayco awning is not nearly the easiest to set up. I see other bag awnings from Carefree of Colorado, Dometic, ShadeMaker... My primary purpose is keeping a shaded, and dry space outside the door and dinette window area in the event of rain. Secondary purpose MIGHT be to one day add a screen room to this area, so I like having the option, though I will not pull that trigger just yet.

I would appreciate any insight via personal experience for any of the replacement awnings that fit my "new-to-me" 1207.
I just purchased a new Dometic A&E Trimline bag awning for my popup to replace the one that got damaged last year. The important part is that the awning rail is already attached to my camper. I should be able to slide the old awning out and slide the new awning it, but I doubt it will be that easy. See if there is an awning rail, which is just a channel of some sort running along the top of the popup. If so, putting new awning on might not be that hard. In my case I purchased an 11' awning for under $286 including shipping from Hanna RV. Came in less than a week.

Thanks John. Yes, the unit has an existing awning rail... Like you, I need to replace the original. Am looking for people to share their experiences/opinions on the original Jayco awning, compared to the various replacement alternatives.. Definitely let us know what you think of the Dometic.
