I am having an electric awning installed, 9100 Series Dometic, and will be picking up the original  :)13 ft.fiamma awning when I get my MH next week. My son is bringing his truck to bring it home. Any suggestions on whether I should try to sell it and if so how much should I ask for it.  It is in excellent condition. I only used it maybe 3 times. 
  Looking forward to just pushing the switch on the new awning. So much easier.  :)

Sell it on eBay. But shipping may be very expensive. Or try Craig's list in your area to avoid shipping costs.

Might also want to look on the Sprinter/Caravan forums.  I remember a lot of discussion about Fiammas on those sites.  Might provide some idea of used costs.  Long shot, but maybe a local RV dealer might sell it for you on consignment?

Use it on your back porch or something similar??  :)(:
It's not that I'm insensitive, it's probably that I just don't care. ;)

It would be really nice if there was a "Parts For Sale" section for members.  I have lots of little stuff I could sell here, but it sits on a shelf in my basement instead.

I second that, Ron.  I have some really nice stuff I bought (brand new), thinking they would be great but once we received our PC and found other more suitable stuff (for us) and I was left with surplus.  Not the kinda thing Goodwill would easily deal with.
