There should be four Velcro straps holding the rolled up canopy tight to the camper top, the bag enclosure simply is there to protect the canopy from getting wet or soiled. The Velcro straps should be secured very tightly to support the canopy in the rolled up position.

No velcro on ours. Thinking the poles is going to be our answer.

The poles should add enough weight to keep the bag down. I kept mine in the bag the whole 13 years I had it and never had the bag flap around. An awning in a long fabric bag...it'll move around a little with out any weight. That being said, my Coleman awning had a header bar made (sewn) into it. That added weight as well. I know the awning w/bag had to weigh at least 20-30lbs. with the poles.

When we had a pop up with a bag awning I always just flipped the bag up onto the roof of the camper for transport. It never fell off or flapped in the wind.

Ours had straps attached to the bag with snaps on the end that snap to the side of the trailer right behind the bag. If we forgot to do the snaps then ours would flap.
