For the price you pay for this awning, the quality is not that bad. But looking closely at the product, the quality is not very good and I don’t think it will last more than a year or two at most. One of my biggest gripes is that the bolt for the center support can rub on the fabric of the awning. I figured over time this was going to be an issue, so I just added a small roller wheel, so the fabric is supported without rubbing on the bolt. I should not have had to do that. I think the metal and fabric quality is low, but like I said, for the price. If you are renting and can use this for a year or two, I think it will be a good purchase but if you want an awning for a long time, stay away.
