I live in a mobile home and was thinking of getting a carport but that costs more than ten grand, so decided to try an awning that was much cheaper. It really has not worked out very well. The sales rep said do not leave it open in winds higher than 10 mph, but here in Florida, that is a pretty common occurrence especially with storms which is the whole reason I wanted something to cover my car in the first place. One day it was about 15mph and one of the arms got bent. It does not work well when it goes in and out with a press of a remote control button. Unfortunately, a Sunsetter is all I could afford.
