Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product probably good CW customer service is not At this point I cannot review the actual product because I have not received it but I will review Camping World customer service which is by far the worst I have ever dealt with. I ordered this April 23rd 2020 and have contacted customer service several times to check the status of the order and have gotten multiple excuses that it is Dometic's fault. Dometic will talk to me directly with a PO from Camping World (CW) but CW will not give me that information. I am sure the product is great and I hope to be able to enjoy it if I ever get it. This is the first time I have ordered from CW and most likely the last.

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.

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 1 out of 5 by from Awning Pretty hard to have a review of a product that I paid for but have yet to receive. I ordered the awning one month ago and it said that it was in-stock, however, after I ordered it online and the suggested ship date passed, I had to call and find out that camping world has no information from the manufacturer as to when I may expect to receive my awning.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Money for nothing It's been a month, and I've received no notification that the order has been filled. I reached out to Camping World. They said they'd follow up within two days. It's been a week. Hard to rate something that you've received absolutely no information on a month after purchasing!!! I'd giver it a zero if I could.

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.

What hardware comes with Dometic 8500 Manual Awning?

Asked by: camperjoy
When the selection process is complete, a full patio awning (fabric with roller assembly) plus hardware (arms and fasteners) will be ordered. However, the awning rail that is mounted to the side of the trailer is not included as this part is usually factory installed.

What is the maximum extension size for a 24 foot wide

Asked by: Jimbo
Dometic's 8500 patio awning extends out 8 ft. for all lengths.
Answered by: CW Steven
Date published: 2020-03-03

Are all different lengths of awnings (say like 27' vs 30') have the same 8ft when extended or fully or are there longer lengths like 10ft ?

Asked by: HappyCamper
Yes, regardless of listed awning length the extension is 8 ft. This is a common feature for RV patio awnings regardless of brand.
