Use your awning for it's intended purpose. Whether camping with buddies or with your kids, you'll need a place to put those wet towels and swimming suits. You could take out the rope, find two trees near to where you are, clean out the area by the trees, and then finally put up the rope to dry the clothes. Or, you can simple hang your clothes over the awning. Always the impression you want to make to the people staying next to you.

Each of the six 42" arms (39" of usable space) can hold up to 10 lbs and locks into one of several slots of your choice. With a total hanging space of 18', you'll wonder why no one had thought of this sooner. Great for home or your RV, it goes up in moments and will save you time and get you back to the fun sooner.
