I second the Bus Depot awning - they are great awnings for the price. I made some little adapters by welding a piece of 1/4 rod to the rain gutter clamp that comes with the awning. The 1/4" rod slides into the C-channel on the trailer and works real nicely to attach the awning to the trailer.

Jack. I bought a Burro, and I'd like to add an awning. The Bus Depot awning looks pretty good. And there are plenty of places to buy C channels from. One question I have is how well does the C channel seal against leaks. My camper and the Bus Depot awning slope towards the C channel. Will I get a lot of water dripping down the side of the trailer with this design?

Hello GWMatson.
The C-channel should be riveted along with Butyl putty tape and sealed with outdoor coking.
The C Chanel will have lip to create a flow of water away from the Fiberglass. Put a gutter drip spout on each end of the C Chanel, the water should alway flow away from the Fiberglass as much as possible.
I hope that helps. See photos below.
