Awning replacement

Hello everyone!

I know this is mainly a site for Airstreams, but I have seen a few posts and questions about Avion campers, so I have one quick question.

Iím currently looking at buying a 1977 Avion, unknown model but the length is 25ft. I know that Avion trailers are not currently in production anymore, so finding parts are quite the task. For the most part, the exterior is in perfect shape with a few minor dents that are certainly fixable. The inside is in immaculate condition for its age, itís dated for sure, but usable for now.

My question is about the awning. Can I buy an awning that was made for an Airstream that is the same size as this Avion?

Thank you Iím advance!

Yes. I scavenged a Carefree awning someone stripped off an Avion and gave it to an Airstream friend of mine looking for just the arms several years ago. Although I like the Carefree brand awning on my Overlander, ZipDee appears to be the leader in awnings these days.

I kind of figured some things would be interchangeable since they are so similar, but I also know they are different brands. Thank you!
