So all you guys that say what can or can't be done or hasn't been solved or done are just speculating.

OC I'm kinda the guy that says never say never. I can't open my awning right now. At least I can't open it all the way. I will have to back up a bit as I had a tiki hut built on my lot. I mostly am interested in it for or lot in Michigan. Florida is not a problem. It would be nice to have the awning out with out worry. I'm in no hurry I guess is what I'm saying. I'll move the rig back and get some pictures. Do you know how they attached the kits to the CF awning. I guess I better get the ladder out and take a look at the top part.

I sold a set for a carefree and there's one long bolt I believe.

Thanks Turbs. I'll take a look to see how it would work. There is enough pictures posted between you and OC to figure out how it connects. Now everyone take a deep breath and be nice. Lol. I add lol like a nervous laugh so I don't get whacked.

Neil, do you think you could adapt the above to your awning brackets?

I am willing to bet that attaching the bracket wouldn't amount to more that drilling a hole in the awning end piece. If the above mod could be made, it would be pretty simple to set up once the awning was extended. Comments?
