Hey Brian! Yes, I have given brackets for the rear doors some thought. The issue is they have to be designed to clear the doors when closed. Clamping to the gutter alone does not provide nearly enough support and there is nothing to leverage the bracket against as is done with the front Z awning bracket.
A solution could be a bracket that is through bolted atop the small rear section of roof (and supporting piece below that because the roof there is flimsy) left on the pop tops. But the bracket would have to follow the contour of the roof down to the gutter so as to not interfere with the pop top closing. And then of course there is the drilling of holes in the exterior which I try to avoid.
I am open to ideas, if someone has an approach that could work.
