I too am at the age my child worries about me. Roll reversal is great! AND, you'll find your Scamp to be a ton of fun
I can't help with the awning
issue. Mine is after market and bolted to the roof. BUT, all these trailers no matter the brand, require maintenance. The rivets for the awning shouldn't be anymore work than keeping an eye on the rivets anyplace else on the trailer.
Others will pop in with more info.
