Retractable awning assembly

Image Number 6 for United States Patent #4171013.

An awning assembly including an elongated storage case mounted on the side of a recreational vehicle, and having an extended position for providing shade and a retracted position for storage. A lead bar is connected to the outer edge of the awning, and the inner edge is connected to a spring-loaded take-up roller in the case. To brace and support the lead bar when the awning is unrolled and extended, automatically positioned, telescoping rafters extend between the ends of the case and the central portion of the lead bar, and telescoping legs pivoted on the ends of the lead bar are connectible to anchor brackets on the side of the vehicle. These legs are jointed between their ends to facilitate operation on a curved-sided vehicle, and are connected to the lead bar by swivels permitting compact folding into inconspicuous storage positions along the bottom of the case, where they are latched and partially concealed by a leg latch. When the awning is retracted, the lead bar becomes part of, and encloses, the case. Also disclosed is a special mounting bracket for holding the case on curved surfaces, and a wand-type tool facilitating manipulation of the parts of the assembly.
