BELOW ARE SOME ITEMS THAT MAY HELP IF YOU ARE MAKING YOUR OWN AWNING
IF YOU HAVE AN AWNING CHANNEL - THESE MAY WORK INSTEAD OF ROPE
Some people are making their own awning from various sources and using different cords - rope to make the beaded welt that goes through the C channel on the camper to secure the awning. The picture to the left is of a welting that is available from these two sources - Compliments of Coop : ROCHFORD SUPPLY1 ROCHFORD SUPPLY2
IF YOU HAVE NO AWNING CHANNEL - THESE MAY WORKThese clever holders - found by Coop - offer a simple way to secure tarps and other sheeting materials. Fastened anywhere on the material, the holders interlock to prevent slippage, wedging tightly as pressure is applied and preventing ripping by spreading the load over a wide area. They accept more than one layer of material, so you can join tarps or gather corners together. They come in 3 sizes, for more information go to - EZ Grabbit Tarp Holders
An excellent design, with many uses. Color may vary.
BELOW ARE AWNING SOURCES FOR YOUR VINTAGE CAMPER
TO THE LEFT ORIGINAL SCOTTY AWNING TAG INFO - "Thanks Bryon for the info"
The color number referenced is for a Serro Scotty and they are available in many colors to use for any Vintage camper. Vintage pole & rope awnings were used almost universally from the 1940s into the 1970s. A period appropriate awning can make a good looking travel trailer a real show stopper. Canvas Replacements - color number 2774 - You can order the aqua white to match a Scotty or get them in many other color choices. Also you can order them with or without poles and stakes. Their awnings are made from heavy gauge vinyl with a scalloped edge and sewn to a flexible plastic strip that fits into the awning rail.

I received this from Larry, a vintage camper owner who wrote the below to me. "We own a Vintage 1959 trailer and just purchased a custom made awning for it. The lady who makes them will e-mail you pictures of the materials she has in stock, based on your color choices. The style is very vintage and the workmanship is great. He name is Marti Domyancic, Her e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Her phone number is 530-891-5120. She is in Chico, California, but will ship anywhere. She also includes a really nice storage bag made out of the same material as the awning. She has awning poles for sale, too. We ordered an 10x8 with an 8' scalloped edge and it was $154.99, plus tax and $18.00 for shipping. After checking around, we thought her prices were very reasonable."
