    im after a bit of help. I haven't got the track to put a skirt on my motorhome, I don't want to drill on an awning recess would prefer to stick it on, but I can't find anyone that does this. Can anyone advise, or is it best to use drill?

    I used just Sikaflex for both the main awning channel and the skirt channel.
    Both have stayed fast in some respectable breezes.
