I have my awning from Interwest and a railing for it. I keep looking at my Burro for inspiration and one thing that jumps out is that the edge of the trailer is curved on the line that goes front to aft above the front door. It looks like that to find a flat area to attach the rail would mean putting it almost on top of the roof.

I'm pretty sure the railing would bend enough to follow the curved part if I mounted it just above the front door. I wonder if that would cause a problem in threading the awning onto the railing. This "bag" awning has the legs attached that will fit into the brackets on the side of the trailer so it is somewhat heavy.

Anyone out there have any suggestions?

Yes, my railing is straight and on top. You can see the trailer curve up under it when deployed. It doesn't distract at all.

Can somebody tell me where to buy an awning that will fit the Burro 17'?
