Power awning on a 1978

Has anyone added a power awning to an older trailer?
I have a 1978 Argosy.

The Zip-Dee power awning on the newer trailers will not work according to Zip-Dee because of the curvature of the older trailers.

The CareFree used on the interstate is a roof mount. I called JC service department and they have never put one on a trailer. It would have to have a custom mount for the curved roof. They are not interested in doing that at this time.

Dometic makes a side or wall mount but again it would need a custom mount for the curved roof.

Looking for ideas
Thanks

If you have the rail on the roof you can slide a vintage style awning in there. They are reasonable to buy , you can find the material ready made as a surplus item on EBAY, or get it made to your specs by people like Marti in California, she has done 4 or 5 for us. This is one of hers below.
