Just got a 2016 r pod with no awning. Emailed River Forest & they said that if it wasn't installed in the factory, when it was made, it is NOT possible to have one installed. Do you all know this to be true, or should I keep looking around? Thanks!!!

It is true , either awning or r-dome.
If you want something done right, do it yourself!

The backers inside the wall that the awning mounts to are not there if the build didn't call for an awning.

That is the same answer I got from the dealership, only dome can be added. Most sites in NC don't have the room for the dome. So we didn't buy one. Just bought a screen sun room to erect over the picnic table cheaper than the dome. Cost under $100. from Walmart or target.

Do you have a keder rail?  That's where the dome attaches.
