Welcome to the forum Ozkamper. Really no need for the center support, unless you're talking about the cradle for when the awning is in the stowed position, and that's only needed on the longer awnings. Your white hawk does have the A&E power awing, right? Care to elaborate a little more on what you're trying to achieve?

Welcome and congrats on your new TT. I agree with BigJohn, not sure why you need the center support. Our awning is 20' and there is no need for a support. Why do you think you need one?

We would prefer to have a cradle holding our 18ft awning when it's closed. Over the years we have seen more than one sagging long awning. Sure they have made improvements but things do happen and at times we tow for long distances.

I have never seen an awning center support like you mention. My 2012 has a 18' electric awning, I've not detected any sagging. Would be interested to see what you come up with. Seems like this could be the "stitch in time" my grandparents recommended.

Awning Cradle Support, White - Lippert Components Inc 289373 - Awning Accessories & Hardware - Camping World

We have had 'several' trailers over the years and I mean several. We added a cradle to one awning to prevent just that after seeing a sagging awning.

In that case, I've done the same before on the longer awnings. I've always used the dometic one.

Comes with a nice backing plate that's not shown in the picture. Even though I've centered the cradle over a stud, I like the backing plate with some large rivets as additional support. Can't go wrong with this one.

The only ones I have seen bent were caused by rain water when open and not enough side pitch

He's referring to the cradle when it's in the stowed position.
