Any hints, tips, and/or advice...

I should be receiving my new, yet vintage, pole & rope awning any day now. Our 65 Overlander, at some time, had a "c" channel awning rail, but has since been removed.

Any advice on what to use to prevent any water from entering under the awning rail when I attach it?

Thanks for your time...

Greg

When you attach the new rail to the trailer use Vulkem sealant under it and butter the rivets before you install them and you should be good-to-go! Also, this would be a good time to pay attention to any old rivet holes up there from the previous rail. Get them filled so as to prevent inside wall leaks. Happy Trails, Ed

Vulkem is now TremPro 635. Available from Vintage Trailer Supply, and others. Works great.

At least as of last week, I found I could get both Vulken and TremPro at my local Fastenal. And of course, they also sell it at the Factory Store.

Yep! That's where I found both and cheaper priced than the factory store or RV centers. Ed
