Your Horizon is shaped differently and may require the extra effort? Bigger gap maybe?
Did you order your trailer without an awning, and put the Horizon on when your trailer was new?
Hi Floyd, "Not Just"... meant not the whole PVC pipe. Rather I cut mine lengthwise making a nice little gutter.
The brand of awning makes no difference. It's the how the trailer brackets are placed on the trailer as well as the design of the trailer brackets. There are a lot of different trailer brackets that will work with either awning.
I ordered the trailer without the awning. About a year later had the trailer brackets made and installed them and the Horizon myself. There was no extra effort needed. I simply decided I wanted a "u" gutter, so I cut the PVC pipe to make one. While yours is a rounded gutter as you simply set the whole PVC pipe in filling the gap. I too, used caulk to set my gutter.
I've seen lots of Scamp
from the factory with your Catalina awning and the gap between the trailer and awning varies. My gap is probably 3/4 of an inch maybe a little more. I plotted it when I added the awning bracket to the trailer bracket thus setting the awning lower and closer to the trailer while still clearing the door substantually.
