I've removed my old Carefree Fiesta awning from our '74 Sovereign
and sent the re-usable canvas to the shop to be refitted as a "vintage style" awning. I'm having it shortened to a more manageable length as it was 21', and having some grommets placed along the outer edge to accommodate telescoping poles and ropes.
Now the question:
The awning rail is in bad shape near the ends. About 6-12" of it at each terminus is pulled up from the trailer and inch or so, and "boogered up". Should I attempt to reattach the rail to the trailer, or should I cut off the worst part and just live with a slightly shortened awning rail?
P.S. See the classified section for my old awning hardware and bits.
