Awning Tie-Down for Traveling

While driving in windy weather I have noticed my awning bag blowing so that it is almost vertical. Should I be concerned that the awning could tear away from the camper in those conditions? Is there something that could attach the bag securely to the side of the camper so that doesn’t happen?

My old starcraft had 3 straps that mounted to the base of the awning bracket ,once you zip up the bag you tighten the straps which keeps it against the roof and also helps support the bag ,great idea that was stock . My new rockwood doesn't have these and i really haven't seen that setup on anything newer .that starcraft was 20yrs old.maybe it worked to good that's why they got rid of that design.i haven't seen my new awning move around much yet but i will keep an eye on it more now.

It would be very difficult for the bag to come off. I would not be concerned.
