13' Scamp, Fiamma canopy, and side leg mounts

So, has anyone approached this? On Scamp's site, there is mention of some damage to a few awnings so they no longer install the leg mounts on the side of the scamp. But they still include the hardware for self-install.

So, has anyone installed these brackets? The 'feet' on the poles don't twist much, so it appears the brackets would have to be mounted a bit higher on the side of the scamp where the body flattens out.

I would think these mounts could damage the Scamp, but not the awning. But awning damage what was cursorily mentioned.

So, anyone jumped in yet?

I do not know the brand of awning that my 2004 Scamp used to have, but when I bought it two years ago the awning was gone. I think it was damaged and not replaced. It still has the brackets on the roof. Those plastic brackets were in a baggie with various hardware and such. It took me a while to figure out what they were. I understand that some people do not want to have them attached to the shell and only rest the awning supports on the ground. I myself would not want to drill any more holes in the shell than absolutely necessary.

I have the Fiamma and didn't install the mounts. Works fine without them so "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" is my attitude.

The awning came with my pre-owned Scamp. Previous owner had it custom made and picked it up from the factory. I'm almost positive it was Scamp installed and not aftermarket. I would contact Scamp, perhaps they have inventory or a source.

I installed the bottom clips on my Scamp and I bought some vinyl boards from Lowe's and carved them to fit the curvature of the shell and reinforced the back side as well. Depending on the length of the awning you might have to make a different bracket for the front. In my case I mounted my front bracket on the frame that I had extended earlier.
I find that the brackets provide a better attachment than just sitting the legs on the ground. If you added tiedowns they might be better than the clips, but for those brief gusts the clips have served me well. For more than brief as well and some pretty big gusts.
I would not leave the awning out unless I was pretty sure that a storm was not coming!

I nail them down with tent steaks for short stays and add 1" load straps with screw in dog ties for longer stays. I also set up with the awning sloped two ways to direct the water back and away.

Mine came with the brackets 18 years ago.
They are still floating around the shop somewhere.
One thing I don't like about attaching the legs to the trailer is that they interfere with opening the door and I hate dodging them every time I approach the trailer from either end.
I Have a Scamp13 so I usually place the legs on either end of the picnic table then use a bungee cord on each leg to attach it to the table.
