    Hi,
    We are the new owners of a 1980 Lionel pop up camper and we would love to have a canopy attached, but no matter how hard we try, we cannot find a canopy that attaches to a "curved" track instead of a "straight across" track. Is there any where we can find a canopy that would accommodate this?

    I think it would be the type that you slide into the track when you set up. It wouldn't be the "bag awnings" that stay attached 24/7.

    And I suspect you'll have to make or commission one.

    If that is a "C" channel, you could make an awning using:
    • A Tarp
    • Coax Cable
    • Duct Tape of Gorilla Tape
    • Tent Poles
    • Rope
    • Tent Pegs

    Something like this "may" work for you or perhaps be modified to work. I do not have one myself so cannot say if it could or not.

    Biggest issue you might be forced to locate a used one as I don't think they are making it anymore.

    Most awnings now used a straight track as you have discovered. Another option is to buy a new awning rail and attach it to your camper roof yourself.

    That is still a standard straight awning at the attachment point. I have seen these and it is a very nice awning.
