This pattern is one of the most popular with hunters of all types, according to a Fun In The Shade news release.

“We had a lot of requests for Realtree Camo, but we were not sure they would grant us the license. After seeing our unique product and our ability to reproduce the colors and patterns that they offer, the license was granted,” said company owner Carl Mello.

“We are very excited about partnering with a global company like Realtree and we look forward to entering into this huge market.”

Fun In The Shade also has licenses to print the logos of 67 NCAA college teams. They also offer many scenic designs and can produce company logos on their 13-ounce vinyl fabric.

Fun In The Shade has the ability to customize horse trailer and toy hauler awnings. Simply email your photo to their design department before ordering. After receiving the file and reviewing it you will be contacted to discuss your needs.

How do I measure my awning?

How do I measure my awning?

Measure from center post of one vertical arm to the center post of the other vertical arm (see illustration below) and round off to the nearest foot. Your fabric will be 9 inches shorter than this measurement.


Prices range from $324 to $796 depending on size and design. All prices include FREE SHIPPING.


Fun In The Shade Custom RV Awnings

Fun In The Shade’s made-to-order RV awning replacement fabric is constructed of durable 13 ounce vinyl with the images of your choice printed directly onto the fabric.

Fun In The Shade uses the most advanced machinery in the business—NO decals here! The edges of our heavy-duty fabrics are heat welded to provide more durability than stitching, which can dry out with long term exposure to the elements.

Their custom-made valance, which is a separate piece, will add the finishing touch to your vibrant awning.

Fun In The Shade collegiate designs are officially licensed with a portion of the proceeds going directly back to the college.

Fun In The Shade has licenses to print the logos of 67 NCAA college teams.

Worth Pondering…

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,

There is a rapture on the lonely shore,

There is a society, where none intrudes,

By the deep sea, and music in its roar:

I love not Man the less, but Nature more

—Lord Byron, Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage

Worth Pondering…

If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.
