What is an RV?
Recreational vehicles, or RVs for short, is a type of a trailer or a motor vehicle which has living quarters that are designed for accommodation. There are different types of RVs such as the motorhomes, the caravans (also known as travel trailers and camper trailers), campervans, truck campers, fifth wheel trailers, and pop up campers.
What is an RV Awning Room?
RVs are very roomy and spacious vehicles, and thus plenty of living space is allowed. However, after some time, they may feel constricting and confining. A solution to this problem is purchasing a screen room that is attached to the awning (a sheet of canvas or other material that is stretched on a frame and is used to keep the sun or rain off) may allow the creation of a considerable extra living space. These are then called RV awning rooms, sometimes called awning rooms, or extend-a-rooms. These rooms insulate the living space against bugs and protect the residents against heat and rain.
What is an RV Patio Awning?
On the other hand, an RV patio awning is an outdoor area adjoining your recreational vehicle. This may act as an extension of living space and may act as a veranda or a terrace; a patio may serve as lounging area beside your recreational vehicle for you and your guests. A patio may be built by attaching fabric or cover to the awning of your recreational vehicle which will serve as a roof to your patio. An RV awning patio is merely a roof attached to your recreational vehicle, while an RV awning room is a whole room attached to the side of your vehicle. This is its key difference from the RV awning room.
