Forest Green Regimental Vintage Trailer Awning in Progress

Forest Green Regimental and Putty Regimental
Today I am working on a custom vintage trailer awning that is 12' x 8', made from Sunbrella marine grade fabric # 4963 which is Forest Green Regimental. I will soon be making another rope and pole awning out of the remaining Forest Green Regimental fabric that will be approximately 11' x 9'. Also in progress is a 7'6" x 9'  vintage camper awning made from Sunbrella # 4956 sold, which is Heather Beige 6 Bar. Putty Regimental # 4961 sold is also started, for a vintage RV awning  that is approximately 9' x 8' sold. I will continue to make as many random sized vintage trailer awnings as I can until it gets close to the Holidays or too cold in my workshop basement, which ever comes first! I have one more local vintage trailer rally to attend the first weekend in

Camping at James Island County Park Near Charleston, SC

We just returned from a camping trip to James Island County Park Campground near Charleston, SC. We have a great time everytime we stay there. It is very convenient to downtown Charleston and close to Folly Beach, which is dog friendly. Actually, you don't even need to leave the park to be totally content. Dutch Puppy loves the dog park on the lake and just relaxing by the campfire. We were glad that the predicted 8 inches of rain and high winds only turned into a couple of heavy drenchers with sunshine popping out in between downpours.
For more information about the campground click on the link. They were setting up for the Festival of Lights, that opens in November.

My Busiest Awning Making Season

My 2011 custom vintage trailer awning making season is now winding down. I am in the process of reorganizing my basement workshop and inventorying my remaining Sunbrella patterns, in preparation for making about ten more small camper awnings. So far this year, I have already made and sold 43 rope and pole awnings; my busiest season yet. Be sure to visit frequently, to see what RV awnings that I am presently working on and that I will be posting for sale. Get on out there and enjoy camping in the crisp Fall weather; you know I will be!
