Shady Boy awning

A friend of mine just added a Shady Boy awning to his Westfalia camper van and at only 15 lbs. it looks like it would be a perfect addition to my 16' Bambi. Has anybody out there done this to their Airstream? I'm sure I could figure out how to attach it to my trailer, I guess I'm just looking for a heads up.

Happy Camping.

They look very nice, I assume your trailer has a awning rail. Contact the vendor and ask if they just slide into the rail.

I just read the FAQ and it normally attaches to the rain gutter, I bet you could make it work. Find a mount that slides into the awing rail and attach from there. Good find.

Looked again in the first picture the little camper looks like it is attached to a awning rail.
