Rated 1 out of 5 by from never again I purchased an awning 8500, 25 ft, with metal weather shield, wish I had not. The awning leaks along the entire length where the metal shield is attached to the fabric. While sitting on the deck on a sunny day one can look up at the awning and all one sees is sun light comming through the stiching where the metal shield is attached and you can not sit out on the deck durning a light rain because you will get wet from the leaks from the stiching of the metal shield. Would never purchase again or recommend this style

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lacks a weather shield The 18 ft awning was just installed today, 7-30-19, and works as expected. My only complaint is that there is no weather shield. For my use this is not a big deal but it bothers me that it is not sold as advertised. I don't know whether Camping World or Dometic writes the ad copy but the first item displayed in the selection criteria of size, color, etc. is a choice of metal or vinyl weather shield. I chose vinyl. Folks, there is NO weather shield on this awning and if you look closely at the picture on the web site there is no weather shield shown. I know what a weather shield looks like because the awning on my fifth wheel has one. Camping World does sell a separate cover for about $100 but it looks painful to install. If you are going to keep your RV stored uncovered with the awning rolled up you might want a weather shield. One could easily be made in a variety of ways. I bought the heavy duty, tall support option which includes a center support which the installer says is not necessary but is still nice. Something is severely binding in the center support and some spray lube helped but did not fix the problem. This will require later attention. I can't comment on the other support options. Just after the install we had a deluge rainfall and it sheds water well and is nice and tight. Other than the above problems, perfectly fine. An awning is a great thing to have and a previous owner of the MH had removed the original one, supports and all, or is just deteriorated. The existing holes matched the new hardware and installation was great with a professional installer. This is two person job. Yes, I would recommend this to a friend. By the way, there are very few suppliers of these awnings and I was unable to find reviews on any of them. However, the installer (over 30 years experience) said the quality is similar across brands.

I'm replacing the awning on my 2004 Winnebago Minnie Winnie (31ft Class C). It had an A&E 8500 awning. Is the Dometic the same, just a different company name? Also, which hardware type should I get?

Asked by: Minnie04
They appear to be the same manufacturers, also you should have atleast 3 people to help. The website should assists with which hardware would be best for the unit you are getting. A manual awning usually is easier to install and operate than a power awning.

The distance from center to center of the supports of the old awing was 13.5 FT. What size new awning should I order?

Asked by: Howard
Not sure if you are ordering entire awning kit including hardware or just replacement fabric. I replaced the fabric on mine in 2017 (my supports are 18' Ctr to Ctr). I ordered an 18' awning fabric and the actual length was 17' 3", so it was about 5" short of the arms on each side, not really an issue. A year later a storm tore my frame and all off of my unit so I ordered an 18' replacement kit with hardware. The new one is only 2" short of the frame on each end. If you are ordering the entire kit, order a 13.5 since that is your ctr to ctr dimension. Apologies for the long answer, hope this helps.

I want to install myself. Your saying i can't because there is no mounting rail? How much surface area is needed to mount the part that is attached to the trailer?

Asked by: Nancy
You can buy aluminium awning rail from various vendors in four, sometimes six feet lengths. The width of these rails are 1.25 inches. I mounted an eleven feet wide awning to my enclosed cargo trailer by using two six feet pieces and cut the length to fit. The rails are then mounted on the trailer with metal screws every six inches. The whole project went very well.

Unfortunately no, a patio awning like this is not compatible with your installation.

I am trying to replace my entire awning assembly and use the same mounting holes. When I measure middle of support to support I get 15'. According to the model numbers on my old roller (Model # 834AF14.401) it is a 14' roller, what do I order 14' or 15'

Asked by: bgbazinet
According to Dometic, you will have to replace the entire setup, but yes, Dometic believes the mounting holes do match up. You will need a 14 ft awning.

i want to order a new awning...how do i choose "hardware type"...my camper is a 28' Hornet...pull-behind...

Asked by: dwmnme2020
The hardware we have listed on our website is for straight, flat sided RVs. We have the hardware arms sorted by load capability (determined by awning length) and by arm length (awning rail to floorline distance). The specifics are below. "Standard" type hardware is used on awnings less than 22 ft. long "Heavy Duty" type hardware is used on awnings that are 22 ft. and longer "Tall" arms are used on RVs that have an awning rail to floorline distance of 76" and over, main arm length is 73" [74-5/8" min | 88-1/8" max] "Short" arms are used on RVs that have an awning rail to floorline distance between 69" and 76", main arm length is 61" [62-5/8" min | 76-1/8" max] "5th Wheel" arms are a combo of one(1) Tall arm and one(1) Short arm.
