installing Awning rail on 14" Burro Widebody

I am thinking about putting an awning on my 14' Burro Widebody. Any feedback or pro's and con's about installing an awning rail to the fiberglass would be appreciated.

In this forum there was a discussion about this subject.
Somebody suggested the sticker 3M VHB, but I do not remember having read a conclusion on this one.

**3M™ VHB™ Tape

Certainly some members are going to clarify the question. I am going to follow this subject, I have a renovation to be made on an awning rail...

I used pop rivets to install the rail on our Uhaul. I would recommend the "peel" type rivet

I used butyl tape between the rail and trailer, and then pop riveted it in every 3rd hole. My awning has been in place for 4 years now. No leaks, no problems.
