Slide out awnings for 2015 Prism

I have a 2015 Coachmen Prism 24G. It's the one with a side and rear slide out. I would like to add awnings to the slide outs. I notice that newer Prisms have this option.
Has anyone added slide outs to older Prisms?
If so, I'd appreciate pictures and details.
Did you have custom awnings made, or were you able to buy them from Coachmen/Forest River as a kit?
Thanks in advance.

Have never seen a slidetopper for a rear slideout.
And there are only two major slidetopper manufacturers, Dometic and Carefree of Colorado.

Dometic makes several different styles and colors of awnings, so I guess I'd call them semi-custom. You provide the length and pick the styles and colors and such and they make the awning to match. You can order them through Camping World or, I presume, through your local dealer. The only thing that seems critical is the length and I don't know whether you measure exactly the width of the slideout or add (or subtract) a fudge factor.

I have a 2015 Solera 24R (rear and side slides) with Dometic slide toppers on both. The two product numbers are 86103CQ.0781-B and 86103CQ.0841-B. I think that the two numbers reflect the difference in awning length, since they seem to be otherwise similar. (I wouldn't be surprised if the two lengths were 78 and 84 inches...)

A bit more info...

The Dometic RV catalog has all the info on measurements, product numbers, etc. See page 48 from this pdf:

http://www.dometic.com/QBankFiles3/E...alog_32016.pdf

Note that product numbers have changed since my 2015 was built...

The 2400/2401R includes a topper for the rear slide-out.

Sorry for the delay, we've been on a long trip.
It's sort of complicated. I contacted Coachmen CS, they sent me a list of Coachmen parts, and a place to order them. I called them, they had a hard time matching the Coachmen part numbers to the awning manufacturer's numbers. I didn't feel comfortable. I called the manufacturer, same problem.
I was about to give up, but then realized we were going by the dealer who sold me the Prism on the trip we're still on. I called them, sent a lot of pictures. They said it would probably work, but no guarentees. I finally decided against it. I didn't want to order expensive parts, only to find out they didn't fit.
I believe the issue is with the rear slide out on my Prism24G. There is not much room between the slide out and the mount for the rear camera.
If anybody has more information about this, please write. Bear in mind that the year and model of the coach makes all the difference.
