How are you attaching the sun screen to the camper? If attaching to the awning, it will need to be attached to the roller of the awning. The slot for installing the shade is on the roller, which is rolled up inside the awning canvas.
How will you clip something onto the awning after you extend it a couple feet so the door will open without interference at the top?
If you plan on it rolling up into the awning also, then when you open the awning a couple feet it will hang down a couple feet too. Will you then anchor it down with an awning anchoring kit or ropes? If so, you are kind of defeating everything, because with a high wind, even if an awning is opened only a couple feet, it's still at risk of ripping and getting torn up.
We travel a lot and we find every campsite is different. Sometimes we are in sun and sometimes under wonderful shaded trees. We are prepared for both. As a solution to the sun shining UNDER the awning with it is in those very annoying positions, this was our solution years and years and years ago. Simply move them around and stay in the shade. Of course, when the wind blows hard, the canvas come off. We've seen too many of them flip over in high winds and get destroyed. So the cover is always off when we are gone or come in at night. The frame by itself has never moved in wind.
