Older 9100 awnings shipped without the adjustable arms.
A mod is available from the manufacturer to add it.
IMO, the adjustable arms are not worth much. Mine won't hold in a light breeze without inviting King Kong to the camp to do the honors; then we need vice-grips to break camp.
As to tie downs with this awning:
Guy next to me in Key West last year tied down his 9100 and a gust of wind caught the awning causing the braces that the sping shocks pivot on to bend. IMO, had the awning been free to move, it would have flapped without damage; bouncing on the shocks.
