Weíve a 2016 Classic. The main awning hook latch has refused to stay in place since buying. Iíve resorted to padlocking the hole in the hook to the hole on the trailer mount.
While Iím on a rant, Iíll add a question: why does Airstream have the hook at the end of the awning (rear of the trailer)? Shouldnít physics and airflow dictate placing it near the front of the awning?
Oh well. Two cross country trips and the trailer has performed beyond expectations.
