Awning help, What's this????

I would like to use a pole awning with my 68 Overlander. There is some kind of channel (maybe for an awning?) on the curb side. Can anyone identify this channel and how it was used? I'm trying to attach a picture, but I don't know if it's working.

Thanks for the help!!

Yep, that's a awning rail...looks perfect to me! We have one just like it and have added a pole awning.

Check out:

Vintage Looking Awnings for some ideas, also Awnings for some detail pictures of the tube that feeds in the rail on ours.

Also, I've added some pictures on our website homepage that show the awning set-up...if you have any questions or want additional information, feel free to PM or email me ~
