Finally Installed...

I finally got the time (and guts) to attach the awning cradle on the Flagstaff 27BESS. DW walked into the house rather than watch me drill 6 holes - 4 for the pop rivets and 2 for the large screws. Of course, I filled all the holes, and a little outside, with caulk for waterproof reasons. I could have set it a little higher, but it still supports the awning sufficiently.

We installed one of those I think on every camper. Awning now is 21' I believe. I accidently installed mine lower than I wanted, but it still works. Waited till a morning dew where I could see, and mark where the studs in the wall were where I didn't hit something I didn't want to. Still scary when you drill holes in the side.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

Looks good. I may have to get something like that for our awing. It's 18'.

I went with the carefree one. The reason I went with the carefree one as it uses the same wall bracket as the rafter vi and rafter vii so the rafter units will bolt directly to the existing bracket I have on the trailer now(when I can afford to get a rafter unit).I have a 21 FT awning.
