Airstream awning on a Silver Streak?

I have the chance to buy a Dometic AS awning for a very reasonable price and since my AS has one already, I'm wondering about the possibility of installing it on my Silver Streak Sabre.

Any thoughts or experience doing this? I'm sure it would take some slight modification, especially to the bottom arm curve.

Thanks gang,

Gave up on the idea...

This particular awning was in slightly rough shape and I determined it was too much of a hassle to deal with. The guy said he looked up the part number on the Dometic site and it matched. While that may be the case, it was going to be too much work.

If anyone needs parts or wants to tackle the project for an AS (came off a '77 international) look on Austin Craigslist under airstream for sale by owner.
Guys name is Mike, really nice guy. $200.
