Wondering if anyone knows what kind of awning would be good for a 80 model Quantum 5?

I would look into the Carefree of Colorado brand. They make a selection of awnings to fit any type of RV.
I am pleased with my 10' Fiesta but I understand the shortest one available is now 12'.

I think you're going to have problems. Looking at the Quantum in the album, it appears the roof line starts to slope before the edge of the door. You'll have to put a shorter awning on to fit the straight part and since it won't cover the door, are you sure that's an expense you really want? And, it's going to have to be mounted above the seamed piece.
