My name is Jean Bundschuh, and I own Tin Can Awnings. I have been camping since I was 6 months old. The fascination with my grandparent’s 1960’s Coastline camper trailer as my playhouse in their driveway, had me lured from a young age. My grandmother had taught me to sew and was always helping with crafts. Once I grew up, and the family trailer was no longer, I yearned for one of my own. I was quickly infected with Aluminitis and had to have more. I have owned a handful in the last 5 years.
Needing an awning of my own, I attempted one and succeeded. It grew to a craft business in late 2014 via word of mouth and Facebook. I do both traditional camper awnings and decorator glamper awnings, I also do a meld of the two. Everything is custom to my customer’s tastes. I have done awnings as small as 6 ft by 6 ft and up to 9 ft depth and 26 ft width.
Two trailer restoration companies, Eternity Trailer and ESK Productions, have purchased awnings from me and have since referred business my way. I reproduced an awning, inch by inch, for ESK from an original painted duck canvas and realized that my techniques are 90% true to the original style.
