Installing a awning ...

Hey all, it's been a while since I've been around. I use to have a pop up with the bag type awning. It was free standing which used no ropes for tie down support. I now have an older '73 prowler, which I'd like to incorporate the same type of awning. It has the groove up top for an awning, but of course, there is a somewhat curve to it. Normally, I use a self standing pop up shade, but that's a pain anymore. Has anyone tried this type of awning, or any ideas ?    Thanks !See More

"The quickest answer for a floor replacement is to go to youtube & see what is posted there. That's what scares me about my rotting section ... not knowing how to do a sectional replacement."

"Yeah, I don't know what kind of inset either. That's just my way of a quick fix.The flooring should be replaced in that area just the same. As crazy as the weather has been so far, I haven't taken the time to really look in side…"

"Your trailer looks so good.  Had to laugh when you wrote that you recovered the cushions in camo.  I am recovering mine in blue stripes.  I don't know what kind of "insert" on the floor problem.  Shouldn't the…"

"Also, I'm going to add diamond tread plating to the front underneath the red stripe, the same for a window shield & rebuild the rear compartment door using the same material."

Pics of inside framing for '73 Prowler

Hello all. First of all, if you see my pic, don't let my " crazy eyes " scare ya...lol. I was having a contest elsewhere on the best Uncle Si look alike, so I kept that pic. Anyway, I purchased my camper back in October & it's in pretty good condition & it'll hold up. Just the same, it has had a leak issue around the front window above the hitch & I would like to replace some paneling. I just bet anything I'll run into framing issues as well & before I start opening things up,…See More
