Awning covers-homemade

I get real jealous seeing the awning covers built into the awnings on Class A's. Too bad trailer builders won't put them on our trailers. Anyway, I got some 4 inch by 10 foot long plastic drain spouts at Home Depot for $10 each. These aren't the hard PVC type but are thin walled plastic. I used painters tape to make an easy to follow line for cutting lengthwise on the pipe. Once cut, the pipe is easily spread to go over the awning fabric. Now my awnings are protected from the Tucson sun. Saw it on a video.

My new Riverstone 38MB (5th Wheel) has the hard awning and topper covers. Sadly, a lot more than $10. Still would like to see yours.
