Anybody here ever made there own?

I'm thinking about giving it a shot with this.

The ready made ones are crazy expensive from what I have seen.

I'd rather go the bag awning route myself.

Go to a RV repair place they prob have frames from ones that they took off they all do and sell for almost nothing and talk with the guys there because the fancy rv's in spring will get new canvas for theirs because it got dirty last year and you can buy the old one from the rv place. the canvasa can be cut down to size this way you get a nice one for a fraction of what it really is.......and if you work out a barter meat for it is even better

I gave it a try this afternoon. The biggest RV dealer we have down here didn't have any. I'm gonna tinker with the tarp idea some more. I think I can make a pretty dood setup for less than $100.
