I’ve had my manual DIY Retractable Awning Suncover 4000 up and in use for a week. We’ve used it every day, so now I feel comfortable writing a review. The actual fabric color isn’t the same as the image color I zoomed in on the computer to see. Different monitors give different colors. I requested samples but they said they don’t send fabric samples thus the service rating of 1 out of 5 stars. The sand color of the aluminum frame isn’t the same either. However, it still somewhat compliments the fabric and house trim. Installation was not easy unless you have basic DIY skills. A second set of hands is helpful though. I agree with other DIY reviewers that a DVD or video link would be beneficial. As the manufacturer notes, manual operation is about 70 turns of the crank, which can be a workout. Whomever you purchase from, I highly recommend ordering your retractable canopy motorized.
