As spring draws near, I'm beginning to think about camping season here in Ohio and would like some input on an idea I have. We have a seasonal spot at a campground and I'm thinking about unhooking the 2 awning supports from the side of my 25' mallard and placing them on the concrete patio instead. I get tired of ducking under them all of the time. The supports just clip into the brackets and my thought is to buy a second set of brackets and mount them to the concrete patio. Has anyone tried this? Currently I also use 2 straps to prevent the wind from catching the awning, I imagine I could continue to do this too. Seems like most everyone on this board has been camping much longer than me so, I'm hoping to benefit from some of your wisdom. Cheers!
