I'm interested in installing an awning on my SMB and upon doing some research, it looks like the SMB brackets/install isn't the necessarily the best way. Although my SMB didn't come with an awning installed, I recently figured out that the two sets of screws/bolts above the rearward window appears to be for an awning. I checked the passenger door jam and there is a bolt as well.
My question is, if I were to purchase an awning, should I use the existing body mounts, or try to find a set of the "Z brackets"? I'm really not sure what is holding the screws/bolts in place right now since from what I can gather, the device that holds the bracket in is a rubber grommet type thing. Any advice and suggestions are helpful.
