WeatherMax 80 Awning For The Airstream Safari

Safety Components International homepage features details on the WeatherMax 80 awning.

When designing its new 17' and 22' Safari Sport, Airstream's aim was to make the RV light enough to be pulled by a standard SUV or V6 minivan. The strenuous exercise in weight-savings left no ounce unexamined, including the awning. Airstream turned to fabricator Zip Dee to supply WeatherMax 80 by Safety Components for awnings that helped keep the Safari Sport light on its wheels.

"We're able to roll WeatherMax 80 into a tighter package," said Zip Dee owner Jim Webb. "That made it possible to remove 20% of the awning housing louvers. We used airplane aluminum rather than stainless steel for the rollers to decrease the awning's weight by 14%."

WeatherMax 80 is easily rolled because the premium fabric is 33% thinner and 14% lighter than acrylic.

Thin, attractive WeatherMax 80 is twice as strong as its competitors. Crazing marks from frequent rolling and unrolling are eliminated and its patented HydroMax finish combats mildew.
