A-Frame Awning - PahaQue R-Pod Adaptation

I've completed moding a PahaQue R-Pod Awning
( https://pahaquecustom.com/store/inde...products_id=29 )
to attach to my A213HW. There really isn't much moding to do other than bend and attach the Keder Rails (2)
(https://www.sailrite.com/Flex-A-Rail-Black-90-Long ) with these screws
( https://www.sailrite.com/Screw-Flat-Head-4-x-6-x-3-4 ) and pay a lot of money to PahaQue.

At the bottom of the Flex‑A‑Rail page there are videos on how to bend the rail. It was as easy as the video shows.

Setup is a very quick and easy. I threaded the awning and attached the center pole before lifting the wall. The awning threaded through the rail very easily. We had a nice thunderstorm shortly after set-up. No issues and we stayed dry!

This isn't cheap, but we camp around 70-80 nights a year and quick/easy/dry outside space is a must.

I'm quite impressed with the quality of the awning. They're custom made to order, very thick materiel with reinforced seams.

Not so impressed with PahaQue customer service. I tried to get them to help me figure this out, but they weren't interested and just wanted to sell me their A-frame version discussed here: Any experience with the PahaQue A-Frame Awning New for 2019

The 1st photo shows how I bent the rail. The 2x4s replicate the roof angle.

Very nice. So you have to screw the rails onto the side of the trailer? I get so nervous having to make holes in the trailer. But I like this.

Yup. And me too. But i rationalized it looking at my neighbor's R-POD. It has the rail on it from the factory. It just looks like a piece of trim along the top edge. If it didn't work out I'd probably take the rail off and put some sort of plastic trim on.

I thought I had a picture of the rail on the camper without the awning, but I can't find it.

If you get a chance to take one with just the rail, I would love to see how it looks.

Iooks ok. As easy as it is to put up we'll probably do so most of the time.
