Pink Glampers Take A Look!

I am constantly getting requests for pink striped awnings. I finally found a Sattler Marine Grade Awning Fabric with a pink background color. It is Sattler pattern #364-643. The darker shade closely resembles BEHR paint card color Cinnamon Cherry S-H-140. I have placed a pale pink jacket, a two tone pink Santa Hat, and multiple  vintage Christmas ornaments in a variety of shades of pink for color comparison. As with any color, computer monitors do not accurately depict shades. Be sure to look at the paint color card in Lowes or Home depot to be sure the colors do not clash with your trailer paint. The following pictures have been taken under different lighting conditions to try to give you a better idea of the pattern colors. Happy Glamping, Kristi

Update 2016: After selling over 90 yards of this pattern, I only have enough for a 6' rail x 7' awning and maybe one other small awning.

Pictures from the Glamping Forum Rally in Georgia

Enjoy the pictures from the http://www.glampingforum.com rally that was held at Stone Mountain Family Campground in Georgia. We started out with 70 degree temperatures, followed by a gale force wind that brought in the rain which dropped the temperature into the 40's. It didn't dampen our holiday spirits though! The enclosed pavilion had a toasty fire going for the pot-luck dinner and ugly Christmas sweater contest, plus the gift exchange, ornament exchange and other social activities were held there too. The weather cooperated for viewing the vintage trailers and taking pictures.

Images of Vintage Trailer Awnings by Kristi from 2013

Represented are some images of Vintage Trailer Awnings by Kristi. These pictures were sent to be shared on my Vintage Awnings Blog. Pictured are only a few of the many rope and pole awnings that I made during 2013. I usually average 55 awnings each year, and 2013 exceeded that expectation.
If you have a picture of a Vintage Trailer Awning by Kristi you would like to be included, email it to me at  dfoster@bellsouth.net .

Striped Sattler Awning Fabric Has Arrived

Update: My 2017 Sunbrella marine grade awning fabric is now being unloaded. Patterns 
Click patterns link to see current fabric available.

 I have been busy unloading my bulk order of Sattler Awning Fabric. I unroll a section, take pictures, and cut off an end piece to show, as samples at the vintage trailer rallies I will be attending. Because computer monitors do not accurately depict colors, I find BEHR paint sample cards that closely resemble the color hues in the awning fabric patterns. You can view the cards at Lowes, Home Depot, or your local paint store that stocks BEHR paints. Sattler awning fabric is equally vibrant on both sides, is 47" wide, made of 100% acrylic fabric, is resistant to rain, stain, tears, mildew, fading, provides protection against harmful UV rays, and is a breathable fabric allowing for comfortable air flow. If you see a pattern that you like, email me at dfoster@bellsouth.net   with your awning rail length and the pattern #, so I can give you an estimate. Here is what I have so far, more rolls are still on their way. I will be adding card numbers to pictures or will give them to you upon inquiry.

Some of these patterns are still available in limited sizes.
See the new shipment that arrived in April 2014 for a different variety of patterns.

Four Paws Kingdom TCT Rally Fall 2013

We enjoyed ourselves at the Four Paws Kingdom Campground in Rutherfordton, NC. Our 16 year old dog went swimming in the dog pond. My husband caught about 6 good sized fish in the fishing pond. I relaxed in the wooden swing, under the shaded gazebo, and watched the younger dogs play. Of course, we also participated in the TCT activities and the Tour of Trailers. So, here are some of the pictures I captured, before everyone was out and about.
Our group has outgrown the size of this campground, but  Four Paws Kingdom Campground will be hosting it's own Vintage Trailer Rally next Spring.

http://www.facebook.com/vintagetrailerawnings Keep checking back; pictures of my shipment of striped awning fabric will be posted soon, to select from for a custom ordered Vintage Trailer Awning by Kristi.

Striped Awning Fabric Has Been Ordered for Vintage Trailer Awnings by Kristi

500 yards of Sattler striped awning fabric have arrived for your Vintage Trailer Awnings by Kristi custom awning orders. There are many striped patterns to choose from, for  your rope and pole camper awning.  Celebrate with me over this great awning fabric find! By purchasing awning fabric in bulk, I am able to get a price break per yard, allowing Vintage Trailer Awnings by Kristi to continue to be affordable. Some rolls have plenty of fabric, while others may only have enough for a small/ medium sized awning. Inquire with your awning rail measurement. I have also posted what patterns are left from my Outdura inventory. All patterns are 100% acrylic, have UV protection against harmful radiation and fading, resistant to rain, stain, tears, mildew, and are a breathable fabric for comfortable air flow. The fabric is equally vibrant on both sides and threads are 9.25 weight.
