Aluminum Awning Rail profile.

Hi all,
I am planning on making a new canopy for my 1972 boler American. "eggbert"
Vintage trailer supply offers three different awning extrusion profiles. any ideas as to what was original equipment on the boler? I suspect it was the 90 degree style but have never seen one on. I really don't care what style extrusion is used just looking for any insight as to what causes problems in use. My thought is one of the three styles will be easier to use while a different style may be easier on the fabric on installation and long term use.;
The 180 degree style shows the slot exit in plain with the mounting surface of the extrusion
The 45 degree shows the exit point clocked away from the mounting surface.
the 90 degree extrusion shows the canopy cloth at right angles to the mounting surface.
My guess is the 45 degree extrusion would be the best choice as the slot would be open at the same approximate angle as the pull of the canopy when extended.

Clear as mud?
Opinions, thoughts and examples welcome
Thanks,
Marty

Our 1973 Boler uses the 90 degree extrusion. We use it and like it.

Sorry Marty ! - I just now went out to the barn through our heavy snow to double-check our awning mount; and the gap is at at a 45 degree angle from the aluminum backing rail, which sits on this 45 degree sloped portion of the curved trailer side; so that the awning material itself actually hangs straight out, horizontally, from the trailer. I hope this is 'clearer than mud' and that I caught this error before you ordered.
PeeEss - Hope the awning rail doesn't interfere with your roof-rack ! And -> Luv your TV, I had a '49 1/2 ton Ford.

Hi Marty, I have no idea what you are talking about with extrusion angles, but I can post pictures of the rail on my Boler in the morning if you like.
