My 10 feet wide x 8 feet depth Nu Shade retractable awning by Nu Image in Harbor cloth is motorized and operates with remote control. It cost more than some others but the reviews and testimonials weren’t as bad as some others, plus the sale price was good. Assembly and installation took longer than I expected, and the instructions could have been better. The motor is not as quiet as expected, and there is a squeak that I have to find and grease. The metal parts appear to be aluminum, but the whole thing together is heavy and awkward, so extra hands are a good idea. The acrylic fabric isn’t waterproof and sags a lot if it gets wet.
