Thanks Gage. Size issue is what I was wondering about. Good to know they can be trimed.

My apologies for the delay... we took some time to go camping 8^>, then were painting the top of the Boler. So here at last are pictures. Well, one of them sideways, but I think you can figure it out. The closeup of the bracket at the end of the awning case shows one fiberglass pole in place and the hole for the pole that runs parallel to the side of the camper.

In the roll-up picture, the gray bags on the ends of the poles contain foam and lines for tiedown (supplied) -- helps reduce potential fabric wear. We did buy the poles which attach to the outer corners with a snap. You really will need poles and some method of tying the awning down, if you keep the awning up for long. It will sail and dip pretty significantly in a breeze. (We travel with the poles under the front bench seat.)

We thought the gap between the awning and camper would be a problem and considered adding a short gutter clipped to the Shady Boy using the existing awning rail. We've yet to do that.

It's easy to set up and take down -- easier with 2, but doable with 1.

Itís an idea that a friend of mine came up with and it works. Marti does quality work at a reasonable price.

That's beautiful. What's the install like for those of us without a chanel or existingawning!?
