Aha! Closer pics: http://www.airforums.com/forums/f442...elp-29041.html

I dunno -- I don't recall much for badges, tags or labels. Does it look like these Carefree pics? Carefree was the only other significant awning maker Airstream used at the factory. Doesn't stop a previous owner from installing a 3rd type though.

I suppose it could possibly be a Zip-Dee. Where can I find pictures of the different kinds? I can't get the levers that let the bars move forward to unfirl the awning to move at all. I'm not sure if it is something simple that I just dont understand or what.

Let me blow up one of the pics in the first link I gave you.

A. Somebody in your first thread mentioned the canvas pull strap. It would be located about here or could be tucked up under the roll. My Carefree didn't really have a pull strap
B. Zip-Dees can have a metal cover and a disengaging hook in about this position.
C. Zip-Dees can have wheels that unscrew in both these positions. They rotate 90 degrees out of the way to allow deployment when they are unscrewed.
D. My Argosy Carefree has something in this position but the condition of my Argo Carefree awning is pretty stone age. I don't have any of the above A, B or C items -- I have to use plastic cable ties around the main struts to travel. It's not purdy but it works.

Chuman70,

IF you have a Carefree like ours, try pushing "in" and "up" at point D. As you push in and up (towards the trailer body), slide your fingers around the back side of the arms to slide the locking mechanism thingy up. This should free the arms (it helps to have a person on each arm) so that you can pull them away from the trailer. Reverse the process to lock the awning arms before you travel.

Good luck,
Virginia
