I used your idea of the screen door spring through a screw to permanently attach the cap to the post.

I used a different approach for hanging it. A lot of people swear off drilling the frame but Forest River seems to have no qualms about it, so neither did I.

I bent 4" inside corner L brackets up on one end (of each) to form a hook. They're bent about 45 degrees, enough to prevent something from slipping off the end. I used self-tapping screws to attach those to the frame, 2 on each side, facing out, about as wide as the post.

I temporarily secured the fence post to the L brackets with a big zip tie on each end. That was to make it easier to manage and adjust. After being suspended correctly, I used 7" steel band clamps to secure it in place.

Having done that I determined the movable end with the screw eye protrudes more than I'd like. I plan to loosen the band clamps, slide that end in farther, then cut off the opposite end to match. The opposite end cap is screw in place with a couple of flush wood screws. It will be easy to unscrew those, chop a few inches off the end, and screw it back.
