I bought the 12’x10’ Vista from my local home box-store Costco – the service at Costco was terrible. The Sunsetter awning came with laminated vinyl fabric which is supposed to be waterproof but is not waterproof after being up during the rainy season. The green striped canopy goes with the cottage atmosphere; I just hope it doesn’t fade because it looks cheaply made. The aluminum frame is beige enamel which doesn’t look as good with our white window frames, but I guess we’ll get used to it and it won’t show that much dirt. The attached crank is much harder to turn than expected, and I’ve scraped my knuckles almost every time I’ve used it. I won’t have to worry about the kids playing with the crank until they get taller and stronger.
