Cool Retro Camping Lights For Awning Individuality

Nothing LIke Cute Patio Lights When RVing

Camper lights for awnings are an interesting thing when it comes to rvers. Admittedly, as a fulltime rver, they can look a bit corny at first glance. But rvers wear them like a badge, proudly lining their motorhome, travel trailer or 5th wheel camper with these unique patio lights. Add the perfect rv patio mat and you've got the perfect outdoor setting!

Guess, in a way, awning lights for rvs has become a contest of sorts. From paper lanterns to chili peppers, flamingos to cows, to be accepted into the rv living lifestyle, you must come equipped with outdoor lights for your awning, or you're better off just staying inside of your camper.

To really stand out among other rving folks, you've got to check out these cute retro camper lights for awnings below. They are so cute and unique. Of course, you can always opt for the beer can awning lights, if that's your thing....

Why Are Awning Lights A Part Of RV Living?

Living In My RV In The Summer Means Time Outdoors

RV living in the summer is just a wonderful experience. Though we are currently wintering in Illinois in our motorhome (don't ask), we know warm spring and summer days are on the horizon. Anyway...similar to people who live in homes that worship the backyard on warm summer evenings, RVers need only step outside to enjoy a night underneath the stars. Enter awning lights...

Motorhomes and travel trailers typically don't offer a lot of socializing space, so awnings offer an opportunity to gather outside. Even if it is a hot sunny day or drizzling, camper awnings provide protection and allow more time in the open air - which means more elbow room, too. Heck, even our dog gets more time outdoors, rain or shine, thanks to rv awnings.

At night, the only option for illumination is to flip the switch on that blinding rv light that is by the front door. Bugs, by the way, LOVE those lights...and you can be certain they will migrate around it. For a softer glow, when rvers trim their awning in patio lights, now there is a warm ambiance that doesn't call out to thousands of moths that it's party time! It's perfect for sitting outside by yourself or with other rvers who've stopped by for some fun.

One drawback of camper awnings, which we learned the hard way, is that without tie down strapsthey can quickly become destroyed in the wind. We lost our awning on our first rv this way. While we slept, a storm came up and not only ripped the canvas, it bent the metal frame, too! So when you use patio lights on your awning, be sure to also pick up some straps to keep your canvas from tearing. Awning lights on a frame with no canvas is, well...just sorta ridiculous, don't you think?

Barry...I truly don't know! I know it is the original that came with our old Fleetwood Bounder...and given it is pouring out right now, probably won't look for a brand today :) - If I figure it out, I'll let you know....

What brand makes your RV awnings? Is it Dometic, Carefree, or another? I have always stuck with Dometic awnings as the first one I got from them has always worked. I bought it from Makarios RV a year ago and it has performed very well in the past year.
