I feel like I asked so many questions over the last couple of days....but here's another.... Prior to getting our MH we were campers!! Anyway, we still have the tent and when we go away for more than a weekend, staying put on one site we figure we'd still make use of the tent. This would be in place of an awning and just for use for outdoor things like chairs, bbq, kitchen (when weather good), and would not be used to sleep in. We'd use the MH for this which would enable us to leave the beds set up. (no living space when beds set up as front diner layout) 3 of the 4 sides open so would be ideal to sit out in even in inclement weather, and with some adjustments one side could throw over the MH as you would with a drive away. So really the question is what makes an awning an awning and a tent a tent? We don't want to pay double fees if we decide to take both, but having just bought the MH we'd rather not shell out for an awning.
