12-volt Eclipse Awnings, Complete

12 Volt Carefree Eclipse

Eclipse is the industry's 1st 12V power awning that features instant pitch adjustments!

Push and hold the button to extend the Eclipse to partial or full 8' extension in just seconds. As the billow-proof worm-gear motor unrolls the canopy, the rafter arms glide up the vertical track on the side of the coach to deploy a stable, truss-like, overhead support.

Push and hold the button to retract and the Eclipse will roll up tight against the coach. That's it! There's nothing to lock or latch. Carefree's exclusive worm-gear drive motor locks the roller for travel and provides the greatest assurance of absolute protection against billowing.


  • Billow-proof, worm-gear drive motor
  • Exclusive "Instant Pitch Adjustment" - Six pitch adjustment settings for more shade or rain release versatility
  • Highest head clearance of any vertical arm awning
  • Rain-Dump feature releases water on flat-pitch canopy setting.
  • Automatic Self-Leveling Retraction from any pitch
  • Revolutionary "Truss Support" for superior strength

Eclipse is the 1st awning to feature adjustable pitch.

The Eclipse provides the most versatility for rain release or adjustments for maximum shade. You can instantly select from six instant pitch adjustments. No other competitor 12V awning matches the Eclipse's flexibility. The Eclipse stays secure no matter the pitch and with partial or complete extension.

Available with Carefree's exclusive Direct Response Electronics and optional Remote Control.

Innovative Direct Response Electronics include the Motion Detection System and Easy-to-Use Controls. The Motion Detection System senses canopy movement and the Eclipse automatically retracts when it senses excessive movement.

The Eclipse can be conveniently operated from anywhere near your RV with the Wireless Remote Control Upgrade Option. The wireless remote option must be purchased along with the Direct Response option.

Easily raise or lower the front, rear, or both arms.
No need to level the awning before rolling up.

For the best protection against rain, adjust one or both arms to their lowest setting. Choose from six quick arm adjustments to get the perfect pitch for shade. Set it and forget it! Simply push and hold the button to retract the Eclipse from any pitch setting; there's no need to level the awning before you roll it up. The Eclipse will self-level for you - And it will roll back out to your last setting.

Unmatched style, beauty and selection!

Notice the integrated style, the trim, the finish and the attention to detail in every part. The Eclipse is available with the industry's broadest selection of fabrics: vinyl, PolyWeave, or custom acrylic colors. The Arm Sets are available in standard Polar White, Satin or Black.

Stable and Secure Overhead Truss Support System with Maximum Headroom

Get the unobstructed patio area access of a lateral-arm box awning and the stability of a traditional vertical arm awning. Eclipse will not buckle or flop in light winds. The revolutionary truss design keeps the awning stable and gas struts on both arms assure a tight canopy. Direct Response Electronics are available for total peace of mind.
