I would love to see your awning strut pictures. They don't appear to be available on the dutchmenowners.org forum anymore.

May need a little more tie down.

I know this is an old inactive thread. I am adding to it for any new readers.
Thanks for the pictures. I like the idea. It may need a little more tie down. I have a Chalet Alpine folding camper. It has a canopy that unrolls and then unfolds. It has poles attached to lower side that extend to the two far corners of the canopy for support and came with two tie down ropes. All similar to the system shown in this thread.
When I watched it move in the wind I knew it needed additional tie downs. The canopy needs side to side as well as up and down stabilization. That is two ropes for each corner. One at a steep angle or vertical to hold it down against the poles and another at a shallower angle to stop side to side motion.
The Alpine canopy has screens all the way around so it is more susceptible to side to side forces, but the same principle applies here.
The attached picture shows the canopy without the tie down ropes.

Ok, it looks like the picture did not make it. I will try to add it again.
