Default Awning Install

I have a awning to put on to my NRC toterhome. How do I find a suitable place to attach the top awning rail/track to the side of the unit?

Do you have instructions? If not look at the other rights like yours and see how they did there's.
Good luck

Thanks for the reply Sam,
I do have instructions but they assume that the rail is already installed. I'm looking for pictures of other rigs like mine with awnings but I'm not having much luck yet.

Some pics of the awning install. I spoke to NRC on the phone and they were lots of help locating the top rail. I was told that I could locate the track anywhere I wanted to vertically and did not have to attack the track to a horizontal member. They also told me that the vertical frame members are on 16" centers and that I should be sure to screw into them anywhere the track crosses one. I screwed the rail on using the pre-drilled holes then went back and put additional screws into the vertical frame members. The rest of the install was per Dometic instructions.
P.S. I used a magnet and tape measure to find the steel frame members.
