from what i know, from owning popups, they aren't like awning on other RV's.
they aren't mechanical, they simply drop out of a long pouch and pull out like a tarp.
you have to use straight poles to support it.
i've never seen the normal type of awning, that's on most RV's, on a popup.
but the last popup i owned, was a 1993 Viking.
