OK got it. Is the awning in the pic above the style you are looking for? That is a Dometic A & E Sunchaser 8500 series manual awning.
Here is a U tube on them from Camping World. Scroll down for the video

They sell these in many places, and sizes. I have one of the 8500 awnings and they work very well. Over time, about the 10 year mark, if the camper lives outside all the time, the fabric get sun baked and can be replaced.
A heads up, look and see if your camper has an awning gutter rail. Up on the edge of the siding by the roof would be a U shaped gutter rail the full length of the camper screwed on that has a round cord slot added to it to allow the awning rope end to slide down the rail and hold it on. If yours does not have that gutter rail or the cord slot, then you can add the gutter rail. It is extra and not part of the awning itself. Some of the older campers did not have gutter rails. I do not know what year they started adding them. Your 87 model may or may not have one.
Hope this helps
