How to Set up and Take Down Airstream ZipDee® Manual Awnings

Airstream uses ZipDee® awnings because they are the strongest, most durable awnings available. SunbrellaTM fabric is special because it is woven of colored acrylic fibers that give it brilliant color, easy cleaning and long life, compared to industry standard extruded plastic sheets.

The weave allows the material to breathe which is why it dries so quickly with only air exposure and doesn't drip on your when it is humid. The low maintenance, American made acrylic fabric is treated with a fluorocarbon finish that makes it water resistant and doesn't need annual re-treatment other than normal washing. The vertical seams give it more stability and less sag and complement the sturdy hardware that holds it all together. The easy-to-operate arms on manual awnings are made of aluminum which are enclosed in tubing, making them stronger for their size and enhance the overall look when compared with bulky, open channel arms. Airstream ZipDee® awnings are designed to fit - really fit - with a custom and classy look that matches the unique Airstream profile. Whether it's the patio, window, or door - these awnings are custom made to fit our travel trailers.
