A Shady Boy awning might work. The case is pretty short and can be installed either flush or with brackets (which might accommodate the shell curvature). It folds out toward the front and back. Don't know about the appearance factor, though. The Oxygen has such a beautiful shape, and it might look tacked on...

we use a Dometic Cabana on our Casita. Kind of an add a room tent. They have be discontinued a few years ago but you may find a used one or check with an Rpod dealer. It slides into a normal awning rail.

I searched for "Dometic Cabana" and found a few still being sold.

I wonder if this one would adapt to an egg? (It's advertised for a pop-up, but is supposed to slide into an awning rail...)

Thanks everyone. I've sent emails to Shadyboy and Pasa Q.
Donna is right the problem is that pretty curve. But looks aren't everything, function is helpful too.
Any more suggestions will be gratefully researched.

Jean, We just got back from our trip and using the KingCanopy for the first time. It was very easy to attach, required no hardware of any kind on the trailer, and fit the curve with no problem.

You do have to stretch it out and apply the flexible poles to get the dome effect, but the whole thing went up in about 5 minutes. I took photos, and will post them later in that KingCanopy thread I started about 10 days ago.

It's not as quick and easy as a pull out awning, but again, no screws, and it only weighs 9 pounds altogether. I had it up in a pretty gusty wind, and the top vents handled the breeze nicely -- no risk of it flying away.
