This week’s guest is Dana Russikoff, the business leader and co-founder of SureShade, a new type of awning making its way into the RV industry.
The awning was developed for the boating industry and is being adapted for RV use. By using a unique structure that includes cross-member supports, it is super strong and can withstand winds up to 55 miles per hour.
Russikoff said the frame is so strong that the company has never had to replace one in its entire history.
It uses a telescoping system that is mounted to the roof. It offers a choice of fabric colors and comes with a three-year warranty.
She describes how the awning works as well as its its features and benefits. It is a product she believes can be installed as original equipment when RVs are built and as an aftermarket product for people to use when replacing an existing awning.
Right now, the shades are being installed on Class B motorhomes, but Russikoff said it could work well on any type of RV.
Some people might be concerned about mounting something else to the roof, but Russikoff assures people that is not a problem. She explained it won’t impact the structural strength of the RV roof or the RV itself.
