    BAMF awning mount. These guys bolt to the awning, and then they bolt to the rack.

    Still being painted

    If it were me I would fully weld both sides, since there's no other gussets or supports. Or try and add a little gusset on the backside that runs down and ties into the tube. With the weight of the awning hanging off it and going offroad, overtime it may stress the welds.

    Will the awning hang off the back of the truck or the side?

    Disregard what I said then. That zoomed in picture got me turned around. That will be plenty strong

    You're putting an awning on your bike?! Won't the pedals get in the way?
