I put an A&E on a Coleman 12' pup I had a while back. Worked great. I bought it from camping world and I think it was listed for the pup. I think it was called an A&E 2 step or something like that.

I see the a&e awnings at camping world. There is not a pup version listed and I can not see how these would work. The vertical pieces would have to telescope when the roof is lowered or raised???? Maybe no longer made?

Yes I had to mount two brackets on the lower part of the pup to attach the legs to. The legs detach and fold back up into the awning. The 2 steps were (after you raised the pup)
1. release and lower the legs from the awning housing and attach to the brackets on the lower part of the pup.
2. Roll the awning out by pulling on it from the center.
Then the legs were adjustable so you could set at what height and angle you wanted for rain drainage.
I'll call my dad later, he has always been my camping mentor, and ask if he remembers any more.

The awning I've seen is for a cavan ,truck but not sure what kinda twist or weight load on a pup roof it would have. At least till you mounted the outer legs. Is there any pup engineers on here??

You seem to be describing the a&e horizon model. I had originally discounted that awning as it it for truck campers. They do not post weights, maybe an inquiry is in order.

If you look at shippin fv weight most my size are 50lbs or so but what I'm talking about is the weight as it opens and the stress on the side of the roof.
