Tall Side Door Ford EB 250, Add awning

I have looked at countless Sportsmobiles, but have not seen one with these very tall side doors.

Does anyone here have one with an awning attached with a similar roof rack?

I'd like to put on an awning without worrying about rain entering the van when it is deployed. I'm not sure how to attach with a flush fit.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Wandering Bob

Just maybe...
Mount it to the roof rack side and then make a skirt to fit between the rack and the awning.
Could be a rubber flap to molded plastic to fill the gap, which appears to be rather small from the pictures.

Bbasso, Thanks for the validation. Was thinking along those lines, but looking for a finished product, if I can find one.

I don't have the rig yet, but not sure I'll be able to mount above door on rack, and still be close to the roof. The quest begins.

Something permanent, vs putting u a piece of rubber or the like each time I deploy.
