END EDIT

Find the promo code, it was OFFERS10

Order on line and pick it up later.

Reg Price: $49.99 - Discounted price $29.99 - Now $26.99 - With Promo code $24.17....

You must do the above for the special pricing, I went to the store and it was almost $50, so you have to order on line.

NO IN STORE PRICE MATCHING, I FOUND OUT!

After my experiences with my $40 awning and my EZY Awning, it may be something else just to play with....

NOTE: It packs small, I had the bag in my hand. They had plenty here in San Diego. It is a LOT smaller then my EZY Awning....I have yet to go get it, have to go have real fun at the beach first....

FYI: Joey likes it,it can't be all bad, eh?

Nice it looks a lot like my ozark trail 9'x9' that works great! Wonderful alternative to the expensive canopies.

adamjjohn203, I have canopy very similar to yours. What do you mount to on your roof? Are the poles you are using sourced from somewhere else or did you modify the original poles that came with your canopy?

Thanks

I used the existing poles....pulled apart the one side and lengthened the ones to have them tuck back to wheels.
I just attach one side to the luggage rack cleats and the other to the back door.

I own it already. Just have to get in Mission Valley.

I was thinking of getting some extras as presents.

Those I should order soon.

Right now having too good a time at Ski Beach ....

I have had that awning for a couple years and it's held up pretty good. I believe it was $30 when I bought it. I've never tried attaching it to the van but I have thought about it. :lol:

tristessa Mon Sep 03, 2012 5:29 pm

Just snagged one. Thanks for the tip!

dhaavers Mon Sep 03, 2012 6:09 pm

Sweet! I'm in for one.

I love getting stuff I need at 50% off!

CaptTurbo Mon Sep 03, 2012 6:47 pm

Appreciate the tip r39o. I scored one and got the email telling me that I can come get it. Sweet deal!

supdude Tue Sep 04, 2012 8:56 am

I got one too!

I used this 10% off code: KMART10PSAVINGS

r39o Tue Sep 04, 2012 11:34 am

I have NOT gotten mine yet!

Despite there being PLENTY in the store, they show no inventory in their system.

Hence they cancelled my order.

I ordered again using a store that showed stock.

This time it said no stock before I finished the check out session.

So I finally got an order through to a store in another part of town.

I will see if I will actually get my couple of awnings.....

Sigh.

In case anybody's curious, here's what it looks like. Just got mine yesterday.



Bag size for scale: (I was surprised at how small it was):


r39o Thu Sep 06, 2012 10:21 am

Looks great. I LIKE IT.

I got my two yesterday.

No time to assemble yet.

It is bigger than my standard EZY Awning.

How did you attach to your drip rail?

hauptmann Thu Sep 06, 2012 11:19 am

I just used a couple spring clamps in the picture there. More than two will be needed to stretch and attach it properly while camping.

I read a thread on here somewhere (I can't find it at the moment) about folks with similar awnings sewing on a strip with magnets along one edge, I think I'm going to try that. Clamps would work in a pinch though.

Looks like Barbie likes the new awning too.

MayorMcCheese Thu Sep 06, 2012 11:44 am

Ok now I wish I had bought one

ha! good eye. I didn't even notice that.

It's not mine! Really!

Got mine last fall on sale for $40. Its not as good as $26, but WAY better than a $700 dollar set up. Used it over Labor Day and it blocks the sun just fine IMHO. I use small spring clips to attach to the drip rail and store it in the tray in the rear hatch.
