Lippert Components to manufacture, sell and distribute Awnbrella™ awning canopy support system

February 23, 2016

Elkhart, Ind. - Lippert Components, Inc. (LCI®) announced today it has entered into an agreement with A.M.S. Global Inc. providing LCI the exclusive rights to manufacture, sell and distribute the Awnbrella awning canopy support system.

“We are always on the lookout for excellent accessories to improve the RV lifestyle and complement our existing line of products,” said Scott McKinnon, LCI OEM Awning Product Manager. “The Awnbrella has been a popular convenience accessory for years. Veteran RVers who enjoy extended stays or seasonal camping use the Awnbrella to prevent water from pooling in the canopy so they don’t have to lower one end of their awning to dump water and debris.”

The patented Awnbrella is available to manufacturers and the aftermarket as part of LCI’s 2016 Solera® Awning line, which includes a range of unique patio, window and slide-out awning styles, sizes and options. The aftermarket Awnbrella comes in kits of 2 or 3 adjustable aluminum bows that fit any brand RV awning in standard and XL sizes. Once installed, the Awnbrella holds the awning canopy fabric taut and arched so water doesn’t pool and debris can easily run off. The Awnbrella is easy to install and works well with new Solera Shades and Rooms. The Awnbrella also comes standard with the new Solera 9-foot-8-inch projection Destination Awning, which also features the aluminum Solera Shield to protect its premium vinyl canopy.
