Scamp evidently changed the style of awning they are putting on now. It looks like it's a crank down. We have to order the parts to put ours back together after it turned itself inside out last summer. The new style would be nice but since ours is only a year old the parts would be definatley cheaper.

I bought it off E-bay and really couldn't return it because of how much freight would cost so now I'm stuck with it....

Randy, I got a TrimLine awning last year and installed it on my Scamp 13. It came with the hardware to attach the legs back to the camper. I have the choice to set it up either way.

The mounting hardware is the same as for the top -- ball and socket. The caps on the feet slide off and the ball ends are there. The sockets are exactly the same as for the top supports, they just mount upside down. It all came with my awning. I'll get a more detailed pic next time I take the awning out.

First the standoffs for the top(there are 3 types) arent even close to whats needed on a curved top like my uhaul. So we had to fab them up.
The rail we glued on the camper with windshield adhesive, the end brackets will slip in the awning rail and be glued also to the body. I'm trying to avoid drilling holes in the body.the legs will extend down to the standoff brackets on the frame , nothing special there just a few nuts welded to the frame to screw into.
took alot of careful measuring and figuring on the brackets but we have it licked now....I'll post pics soon of the bracket needed on a uhaul if using a simular type awning. Bruce

Yea mine came with those also the only problem I have with those is the smallest breeze wip up and your canopy will be laying over the top of your camper..the hardware on the Carefree with stood 45 mph winds in Kansas without a problem, as a matter of fact it was so windy I was scared to try taking it down by myself for fear I couldn't hold it so I waited til that night after the winds had calmed down..I'll try to get you a picture of how it works and post it soon..THANKS RANDY
