Capri Awning

I recently purchased a 1969 Ambassador that Jimmy Dean originally purchased new. A great find with most everything being in good shape. It has an INST AWN CAPRI Awning which I can not find info on anywhere. Does anyone else have one of these and if so how do I get it to open?

They are "out of business" many years ago.

capri awning?

Andy... I was wondering if you could look at my photo album and tell me what the H... kind of awning rack is on my trailer. I could see where it might be more well suited to a more arid climate. It really sort of looks like a shop front awning. I'm just looking for a lead. Silverhawk, Bob...

Silverhawk.

I have no idea what kind of awning you have.

However, I have seen similiar types on the old time, mom and pop grocery store fronts.

But, I did see alot of silicone sealer smeared on some seams. Not good.

Additionally, if you plan to travel with your Airstream, I would strongly suggest that you check out your axles.

From the photo's, it looks like it has more then seen it's days.

Thanks for the reply Andy.
There is a lot to do on this old coach and that axle will be one of the next things.
