Yes if it uses the same style of attachments. CoC latitude, Girard require special steel metal plates attached to side walls aluminum structure at the very top of the wall. After all, the two roller arms support the entire assembly's weight with four 1/4" cap screws. There are no lower side wall support. By the same token, if your RV came with a Girard patio awning there are no side wall attachment points for the typical Atwood patio awning. Typically there are small steel plates in the wall everywhere there is sheet metal or cap screw driven into the wall.
