In that case, you may have to remove the poles. I guess we do need a picture.

In that case, poles definitely have to come off. Will have to furnish 5/16" hitch pins which is no problem.

Yep. And it is way up there when it is deployed.

I really hate to do this, but some of the carefree awnings the support arms can be unhooked. This is a simple procedure. They can then be placed in the vertical position and staked down. I will recommend using cork screw anchors and a ratchet strap for better holding power. OldCoot can still be a big help with brackets for ratchet strap. I ducked under the support all season then camping neighbor showed me that the supports go vertical. I was super excited about that used it twice and sold RV.

Our park Model has a AE Dometic with arms I have in brackets screwed to the deck. Stays up all summer even in toronado season. In 6 years never had a problem despite trees being ripped out two sites over.

No need for brackets on those type awnings or the manuals, just loop the ratchet strap around the tube and stake it down.

Two questions. Does it work on a carefree that is completely enclosed in a metal case when closed? Will this work with the height of the awning being at 12' off the ground?

I will take photos of it closed and let you see what it looks like. I am bookmarking this page so I can find you again.

Well have to see pictures.
I can make the poles just short of 19 foot so that shouldn't be a problem.
