Thanks for the reply. I sewed a narrow seam along the top, then I used skinng rods to slide through, then slid them onto the trailer edging that supports an awning.

I'm using almost the same setup - different tarp but same kind of poles. To prevent poles from popping out from the eyelets, I use bungee cords running from the eyelet to the pole adjustment screw. When (it's not if) a gust of wind comes, it lifts canopy a bit but poles stay with the canopy and the whole setup always comes down with poles down
I also have bungees between the guy ropes and pegs in the ground. Eliminating sharp tugs on the pegs prevents the pegs from loosening up to easily.

Nice solutiom

I wouldn't mind having something like that! Just make sure you don't get a low spot that collects water because it will get heavy fast

Actually, with 2 pole setup, as long as the poles are set lower than the rail, water runs of nicely and predictably right in the middle, between the poles.
