Update for prospective purchasers of CA vehicles - they are no longer fitting awnings. Apparently the ones they were using were 'too difficult to use' and causing customer issues.

In my case it was 'too difficult to install' and CA are returning my money.


Are you sure that this is nationwide and not site specific?

The sales droid at Denver didn't say it explicitly - but he did say they didn't know where to get the parts from to complete the installation (they installed the original back to front and broke the internals trying to make is work backwards) and that they didn't have a replacement.

What Brand Name/Make and Model that CA seems to find to difficult to use and install? It seems that they can't install it correctly if they put yours on backwards,pretty incompetent in my opinion.

The manual ones are fairly easy to install,I helped my Son In Law install one on his trailer not long ago.Plenty of YouTube videos out there that show how to do it.

I don't remember to be honest. I'll dig through some paperwork and see if I can find the details.

WOW that dealer seems to just not be interested in doing the job and is blowing smoke up you know where

That awning is one of the easiest to install and work,I have done both.

Parts for this awning are readily available from multiple sources ,Amazon.E bay and many RV Parts houses,I bought a part I need on E Bay,it was cheaper that all the others.

It is to bad that that CA dealership treated you this way,I would suggest looking for a RV shop around you and have them install an awning. I had mine put on by Camping World and they did an excellent job.

Yeah - I'm going to get one done during the winter refit. We were supposed to get all the outside stuff last year - ah well. Hopefully come spring we'll be finished . Yeah right :-)

I'm assuming you are referring to the Denver CA. If so, I wouldn't be too upset that they don't want to install awnings anymore. I travelled back to Denver this past April to have them install my awning on my 23A that I purchased in Sept. 2020 as they couldn't get awnings at that time.

I was less than thrilled with their installation. The installers were not very well informed in how to do the installation or it's operation and did a hack job. I'm going to have to do some "southern engineering" to make sure the awning will stay on my coach. By the time I drove back home (central Missouri) from Denver, all of the screws that hold the awning to the top of the coach had backed out. I'm happy that these screws don't have to hold the weight of the awning as I probably would have lost it somewhere in Kansas. After they got the awning installed, they didn't know how to deploy it, but I was able to figure it out before they broke something.

Does anyone have recommendations on where to try and sell their 19G? I've been told RV Trader is a good place. It's just on Craigslist and FB Marketplace now, but I've only gotten a few tire kickers there.

When I was looking I found the most that I was interested were found at Smart RV Guide

There are some 19Gs listed there.
