I picked up the new Aliner Fast Pack awning the other day and got a chance to put it up.  I didn't have much time to play with it and get it fit perfectly, but in the 10 minutes I put into it, I was happy.

I quite like it based on first impressions. It's easy enough to set up, seems
like it'll hold up well and does exactly what I want. Note that I did not use
the included stakes and rope, as I took everything down soon after I put it up.

Pictures are here: http://www.jonathanhrovath.com/gallery/index.php?album=public/misc-stuff/other-stuff

I hope this helps other Aliner owners.

Interesting awning.  I'm wondering how it will hold up to winds.  Even after staked down it looks like it might catch a lot of air.  It also looks like it will pool water badly, maybe not once you get it staked and pulled tight.  Keep us posted how it works out.

Pretty nifty design!  Thanks for sharing the pics.  I, too, would be curious to hear how it does in the wind.

A little off-topic but the last time we went camping, a guy pulled into the CG with his Aliner all set-up (while towing). I was sort of amazed so I went over and talked to the guy. He told me that he even tows on the freeway set-up if the weather is good....... I don't know much about the Aliners but would you do that?

Dear Lord!  I certainly never would!  Not to mention, why would you when it takes 30 seconds to close it up?  Was he pulling your leg?  I think it would stress out the sides and latches way too much.

He wasn't pulling my leg at all. We were at Pt Mugu and I saw the thing coming down the highway behind where we were camped (we can see the road for ~2 miles in either direction). I was pretty shocked myself but the owner thought nothing of it. He just came from Leo Carrillo State park which is 15 miles South of Mugu bit still........ Like you say, it only takes a minute to put it down.

He did say that he doesn't tow long distance like that (because of the wind resistance) but he said that he saw no reason to take it down towing local.

Has anyone had experience in high winds and/or rain with this fast pack awning for A-roofed popups yet?  I would like to get feedback on how this awning works in the kind weather it is nice to have an awning for. I have foot long stakes I could use with it.
