I’m looking forward to using our 16-foot DIY retractable awning Suncover 1000. I went with the Chinese made Suncover 1000 because the prices on other models were out of my budget. All the parts were included for installation. As to mounting itself, I found it really hard to deal with as the instructions were poor and lacked detail. The awning has a Chinese electric motor included. Hope it keeps working (I really dislike manual cranking) and my new motorized retractable awning won’t fall apart the day after the very short warranty runs out. From appearance, it is not a product I can recommend. I’ll add more when I’ve had it longer.
