Did the 4" Eternabond thing. Quick easy and has held up well. Also that was my most deteriorated part of the awning, so it helped stabilizing things and sealing up some thread bear areas.

Yep also used eternabond on mine but that was because mine was in bad shape where the roll is exposed when stored. That was 4 yrs ago at least and its still well adhered and has allowed me to get several more years out of the awning.

Great tip about using a heat gun to put a little crimp in -- thanks, Double Haul!!

I use two half round "D" profile gutter sections. I place the upper edge into the gutter. The two sections overlap in the center. I cut two, 1" wide slices off of 4" pvc and took about 1/3 of the round section away so they slip over the gutter and awning roll and act like clips to hold it on. Make sure you trim and smooth all sharp edges on the pieces so you don't cut the fabric. I only use it for winter storage, not travel, but it might actually hold on. It's pretty secure.
