My opinion on having an awning is that it needs to be dead simple and quick to deploy and stow, or I’ll just be too damn lazy to use it most of the time.
I had a cheap arb style awning in the past (pre gfc) and unrolling/rolling it and dealing with velcro and legs was just annoying enough that I never really used it (coverage wasn’t great either, which didn’t help motivate me).
With all that in mind, I ended up getting a kinsmen hardware awning, which so far I really like. I only received it last month and being winter and all, I’ve only used it a couple times, but not having to deal with poles and guy lines means I’ll use it a lot more (I’m not sure how much of a requirement the poles and guy lines are on some of the other awnings out there). I also made a little shower curtain that attaches to it with a combination of snaps and magnets which I put to use on our last trip which was nice. The fact that they have GFC specific mounting hardware was an additional selling point. It is pricey though, so there is a trade off of cost vs convenience.
I went with the driver’s side version since I have a dual swingout with my bike rack on the passenger side, so I tend to walk on the driver’s side a lot more.
The only downside is that the awning, especially when stowed, prevents me from opening my driver’s side panel as far as I’d like, but I’m also 6’5", so it affects me more than most.
