How do you tie-down your antenna - 1968?

My Globetrotter has a 12 ft antenna mounted up front. I have been using tiedowns to date. Anyone know if Airstream had attached some hardware to their units to allow us to hook the antenna back? If not, what are you doing? Not sure where to put one, either on Zip Dee awning brace or above the awning? Any ideas would be appreciated.

Most of them had a circular "hook" on the trailer a couple of feet from the end of the antenna. You'd put the antenna through or under the hook for travel,and unclip it for maximum reception when you got where you were going.

A hook makes sense. It sounds like something I would need to custom make. Does anyone have one on their coach they can post a photo of? I hope to keep the unit as vintage as possible. Thank you as always.
