I can recomend a ShadeMaker awning from these guys:

We put a 16 ft. one on a few years ago. It has held up very well & gets used a lot. VERY easy install. When open, you can leave the roll-out supports on the truck, or have them upright so no one cracks their head on 'em:shaking: yea. I did that.

Looked around at uhaul's actual for-sale trucks, and the 26 footers (1988-89 vintage)are the same price as the 17 footers (usuallyl about 1994 vintage). Both are 7.3 diesel based around here, around $4000-$5000.

But there are a lot of newer nicer vans, like 98-2000 around $4000-$6000 or so, being depreciated out. But they are flat floor, not low decks like the moving vans.

ya ya, tell your firiends... I should get paid to post my build threads !!!! (Lance put me on the damn payroll !! Or at least comp me a free membership !!!!) Honestly I'm fortunate that I can afford to 'play' around with this stuff and take losses on just about everything I've touched... But I do learn a ton and go into each additional project with a better view point each time...

Only reason wife was happy with this is becasue it was newer and doesn't need much to be minimly functional... (and the side camping trips will be nice)

Yes I'm gonna keep #3 around for a while... Possibly even put it into service once in a while for fiends if they want to pull it etc..
