I am not sure where you get this info but the mountings are not the same?
The Bag Awning relies on an Awning Rail which lays directly against the surface of the trailer to provide the Flat support it needs for the Awning mechanism inside the bag to operate.
The Case Awning relies on the fact that it is inside the hard case to provide the flat surface that the Bag Awning needs the trailer wall to provide.
They are fundamentally the same as they both require the awning to have a flat mounting surface but the case awning has its own flat surface.
So the original poster observes that the 19er does not have a flat surface suitable for a Bag Awning to lay flat for the entire lenth where you would want to place an awning.
This is why there are special brackets for a Case Awning to provide the "Stand Off" needed to allow a Cased awning to work along the length of the 19er.
These Stand Offs hold it up there away from the wall of the trailer so it can avoid the contour of the trailer and still be a rigid case.
They also let water flow when it rains between the trailer and awning but I have noticed that many case awning have this issue including mine.
