Some years ago, our founder, Kevin Drews, bought a new 32’ travel trailer. Kevin lives in Phoenix, stores the trailer at his house, and travels regularly around the Southwest.
After the second summer stored beside his house, the RV’s 20’ patio awning had deteriorated significantly and was nearly torn through due to sun and weather exposure (see the picture on our home page). Kevin replaced his awning and then started looking for a way to protect it so he would not have to replace it again in another two years.
Setting Out On A Mission
After extensive internet searching and many phone calls, Kevin couldn’t find a product or good homegrown solution that would last and be easy to use, so he set about to design and manufacture what would become the Awning Pro-Tech cover. Kevin wanted an RV awning cover that would meet the following criteria:
- Be easy to install
- Last indefinitely
- Be cost effective
He came up with a patented design that shapes a high-strength polymer into a sleeve, which snaps over and protects rolled-up awning fabric. The Awning Pro-Tech cover was launched in 2010 and has been well received by the RV industry. Our customers love our RV awning covers!
A Solution For RV And Camping Enthusiasts
We are now on the third generation of our manufacturing process. The materials have been upgraded, and the product now has been perfected to be able to provide years of protection for your RV awnings.
Awning Pro-Tech has a manufacturing and distribution facility in Phoenix. In late 2011, Kevin completed the design of a protective cover for slide-out and window awnings, with all of the same great properties as our original patio awning cover. These products are now available for purchase.
