Sitting around and watching Netflix and we had already brought the awning in due to the wind and we weren't very concerned about the pagoda because of the air opening in the top to let the wind out. Suddenly Sherrian yelled "Mike" and we ran outside just in time to catch the pagoda before it smashed into the RV. We managed to keep it off the rv and after much work struggling against the wind gusts we were able to fold it up. Luckily there was only damage to one of the metal braces and we think we can make a repair and it will be fine.
Lesson learned to keep a better watch on the weather. When in doubt put the awning in and take down the canopy. We might try using weights to hold the canopy down.
We love to travel in our 2021 Coachmen Beyond van about half of the year. Join us, if you will, to see where our adventures take us.
