Fabricators can sew up a large custom awning for the side of your vintage trailer as well as smaller awnings, in matching fabric, to shade the windows. As you can see from the reference photos below, most vintage trailer owners also choose to have their custom awning enhanced with a fancy scalloped or fringed edging detail. Whatever style and stripe colors you choose, you'll be amazed how your new awning creates an "outdoor living room" you can enjoy with family and friends, safe from blistering sun or chilly rainshowers that would otherwise put a cramp on outdoor camping fun.

However I was hoping to reinforce the floor without needing to remove the shell. Im a bit torn because while I'm not 100% satisfied with the strength of the floor and the uneven surface, I am also not convinced it isnt haha.
