Retrofit awning to '67 safari?

Is it possible to fit an awning to a said trailer that isnt currently equiped with one? Was anthing different done under the skin to add strength, or was it just attached? Any one have an extra laying around? :-)
(bringing her home friday...yeah!)

Here's a Zip-Dee on a '66 Safari (sorry about the quality, it's kind of dark outside):

All airstream should have awning rails. You just have to install the arms and mounting hardware. Good luck

If it has one of these awning rails...



You will be able to add an awning. Different styles are available - either the modern Zip Dee (as in the earlier photo) or stake & pole which some vintage trailer owners prefer.
