Thanks again mcfarmall. I'll try the corkscrews next time out, which might not be for a few weeks or so. Perhaps I will pick up two more for a total of four, two for each side. I am not trying to ride out a hurricane, just don't want to lose the new awning to a sudden, unexpected gust.

Very interesting. Looks like the new awning installed right into the factory zip bag, how does that work? Also did you have attach anchor points for the side arms to the camper body, and do those come with the awning kit?

Very nice, O.S.! It looks really first rate! Just make sure you can disconnect your ground anchors in a hurry if a sudden storm (with high winds) pops up.

Like the factory awning, this one comes sewn into its own bag and slides into the existing awning rail.

The two wall brackets came with the awning. Very simple to install. You can review installation and operating instructions here.

Thanks. And yes, I intend to be very protective of this thing in the event of wind, and remove ground ties quickly should the need arise.

The replacement awning looks great! Our previous pop up, a Viking, came with a Campout awning, and, we loved it. Our current Qwest 10X, has the factory Jayco awning, with two piece poles, tabs that go in holes, pin clips with broken keeper chains that hold it all together, and takes a lot of work and help to set up. We just got the camper a month ago, and, will stick with the current one for the rest of the season, but, come next year, we are getting the Campout. Just curious, how much extra did it cost to get the fade instead of stripes? I like the color fade much better.

Sorry for the delayed response. I did not see your reply until just now. They offer several new color options. Problem I ran into was that no one had the new colors in stock, so I paid a bit extra primarily due to freight charges. The awning is shipped in a cardboard tube about 6 inches in diameter, and nearly 12 feet long. Doesn't fit on a ups truck, so the freight charge was pretty high. All told, I think I paid around $450 including shipping. The older colors can be found for about $100 less, but I really hated the old colors.
