Need Awning and Basket Help

I'm at the beginning stage with my van conversion. I just bought a 1998 E-150 Sterling Coach which I am planning to convert. Already that busted mirror has been replaced and the wheels match. Please don't judge. I got it supercheap.
At present I don't know much.
I'm going to need an awning and I can't use the kind you stake down because reasons. Everything has to attach to the van.

Because there's nothing between the passenger and clamshell doors to attach a vertical awning rail to, I'd like the sort of awning where the vertical bits drop into sockets, which I can install where I need them.
Also, I'm going to be carrying a fair bit of gear outside, in a cargo basket or roof rack, accessible by a ladder. Or I may build a deck that can hold also serve as a stargazer station when it's not holding boxes.
Anyway. Can some helpful person here tell me what awning and deck combination I should be buying that will work?

Very much obliged,
~ S.

For the awning, a Fiamma or the like is often used with member 1der drip,rail brackets. See this thread:

There are various roof deck options. Have a budget?

A search would turn up multiple threads for both in General, Body, and Gadgets.

Welcome and congrats.
