One of the most enjoyed activities by millions of Americans is traveling via recreational vehicles, or RVs. RVs can provide all of the comforts of home as well as the ability to visit thousands of destinations. RVs can range from small, pull-along trailers to mammoth driving trailers. One way to increase energy efficiency and beauty on a traveling trailer is through the use of an RV awning.
You can generally choose from two styles of RV awnings; those that can be rolled up, and those that stay open with the awning fabric and roller tube exposed. The most popular type of RV awning is probably the conventional type. Most experts will agree that the overwhelming popularity of the conventional RV awnings is because they are much less expensive than other types. These types of awnings do not fit directly against the RV's sidewall, therefore causing a potential danger in high wind situations. Window RV awnings, however, do fit snugly and closely against the RV and, depending on how well they are roled, can have a much better resistance against wind.
RV camper awnings can provide many of the same benefits as home awnings. They can add charm, elegance and functional qualities to your home. Energy efficiency is a huge plus when considering a camper awning. In many cases, you can reduce solar heat gain by up to 70% and you can imagine the utility savings.
Some people enjoy traveling in their RVs for leisure, while others choose to make the RV their primary residence. In either case, camper awnings are certain to make your motor home feel more like a comfortable and inviting place to live and entertain. You can start your search for a camper awning by contacting any local awning installation company; most of these companies provide awnings for both homes and RV's.
