The awning rail installs below the gutter just like a regular awning.. Also you do not need to find the studs there are screws in the rail every 5/6 inches. I've installed them on aluminum and fiberglass sides with no problem at all.
I will have to look at my drip rail and see if it has the slot for an awning. The actual gutter is at the roof top and i think would be to high.

We have them and wouldn't be without them. Lot's of YouTube videos on the installation process.

No. The new rail goes below the drip rail/gutter with the slot that the awning slides into on the top.

Are the camping world versions any good? They will install for $29 or sometimes $39.

Well $600 price for a 1 slide awning to me is expensive. One of my slides is 13ft long. I can just imagine how much that would cost me lol. So what I'm planing is getting some EDPM white matreial and cutting it to size and getting some industrial velcro to fasten it on with.

My slide sizes:

Left slide: 13ft long
Right slide #1. 8ft long.
Right slide #2 6.5' long
Right slide #3 8' long

As you can see it would cost me some major dollars to put awnings on my rig with those type of prices above.
