It requires special brackets to fit the rounded shell. You can probably obtain the brackets from Scamp, or they can direct you to their supplier.
Other than that, installation is straightforward. No special reinforcement is required, but youíll want a fender washer on the inside to distribute the stress. Use stainless steel bolts and seal well.
For a small trailer like the Scamp I personally like the Shady Boy awning. Itís a smaller, lighter, cheaper, and more wind-resistant alternative to crank-out case awnings. I believe they can supply the necessary brackets.
If you do go with a factory-style case awning, Iím a fan of Carefree of Colorado for a good product and great customer service. We have a Carefree on our Class B. I believe Scamp supplies a Fiamma awning, which is also a good choice.
