I had roof rack brackets from SoCal Teardrops sitting around forever so I decided to install them along with another rack I had from Frontrunneroutfitters.com. I did have to fab up some L brackets to attach the rack to the brackets. These brackets are designed for a Thule or Yakima style foot pad. Slapped it all together with stainless steel hardware and it turned out great. Might put another awning on the other side. I also have the fully enclosed room for the awning.
