I didn't think the r-dome was being supplied any longer in favor of a roll-out awning?

Their brochure lists the R-dome and the Thule awning as options. One or the other. The pic on the site shows the r-dome is blue and gray. Blue at the bottom.

For those of you who prefer the awning over the r-dome.... don't bother coming up into central, eastern, or northern Ontario from May 15 to Sept 15th. You will be spending ALL of you time inside your pod. The black flies and mosquito's are to hard to handle without the dome to sit in.   Just say'en..

One or the other. Most dealers are ordering with the awning, as they know how to "sell" an awning.
Signature removed, so as not to trigger any non Ford owners, non Irish Setter owners, current R-Pod owners, unhandy or mod negative Pod owners, or single campers of any gender.

The structure needs to be reinforced where the awning attaches. So you should order it up front, or else it can not be installed.

+1 to GlueGuy, if you want a Thule awning you need to order or buy that way. If you buy with a keder rail, you have to make or buy an awning that attaches to the keder. I have a visor awning for my 178, I bought at PahaQue.com.

In response to OP, ours (172, Mfg 10/18/2018) came with R-dome and I just rolled it out.  It is indeed predominantly gray, but with dark/Navy blue trim along bottom and thin strip along "eave" vent.  I expect it will match anniversary exterior well.

Thanks for making me look (never thought of it).

I;ve said it before, I love the dome. I really fail to see the attraction of the tiny awning even if I didnt have the dome. My dome is as wide as my pod. Usually awnings are a few feet shorter on each side of the pod. There is so little area under the awning in my opinion. I love the dome so much, i bought a clam last year so i could have even more screened area. The clam pavilion also comes with built in rain flies that roll up just like the dome. So rain or shine it gives me an additional 12 1/2 x 12 1/2  foot wide "indoor" structure.
