Larrie, thanks a lot! That's a good price, almost a third of what Van Specialties charges, which is what I'm after since I'm going to have to hack them a bit anyway and I don't want to ruin anything. Can you send me some pics of your setup and brackets? No rush.
CarringB, thanks for the idea but it's way too high to mount on top of my PH. I'm wanting to mount on the rain gutter so the awning will still be manageable and reachable with the PH up. I don't know of anyone who has successfully used an awning mounted on a raised PH except LenS and I don't really want to try it. I would like my awning easily in reach so if it gets windy I can drop it quickly, and also so my wife and kids can help without climbing.
Jin, I appreciate the offer. I may or may not try to round this up before my summer trip next month but if I do I'll be in touch. Thanks for the help! Oh, I haven't forgotten your trim pieces. I'll try to get those out this week. How many do you need again?
