We are new to this. My mom and dad has a motor home but it is not an airstream. So any help we can get is greatly appreciated. There is definitely a difference. We will be trying to look for someone that can take a look at it. We are going to Jenny Wiley to camp next weekend, so maybe we will happen on someone that has one or can tell us where to find some help. Thank You all for the advice.

Awning rails

Google csc textiles awning rail
There you can see pictures of different types of awning rails. If you are planning on a vintage look awning be sure to get an awning rail that has a 3/8th inch channel. From what I have read, waterproof sealer under the rail during installation may help to prevent leakage. I have also heard that putting some sealer on the screws just prior to screwing them into the rail, also helps. I would consult with a RV dealership before attempting to install one by yourself. Good luck. KF
