Found this on the net its used in the marine industry but can be used as a awning rail.

Im thinking of fitting one to my van.

As anybody used this before - my local sail maker says he thinks he may be able to get it in black

I've got the caravan j rail stuff on mine which is just sikaflex'd on and works great (should have put a longer length on though). It is aluminium but could be painted black.

That stuff looks fine but the j rail has a bigger surface area behind to attach onto the van. no drilling needed.
