Goodwill, craigslist, take your pick of places to find cheap sets of round disc type dumbbell weights. Pop the leg off, slide through hole in the weight, then reattach to canopy.

We have a 2001 RT 190P that had (read "HAD") an awning. In that time, the only time I ever opened it was to clean it. I removed it and it is laying in the garage. Give the awning some time, maybe you don't need one as bad as you think.

Go figure - we use an awning every time out

If you get a popup one, be sure the canopy is attached to the framework, not like the first one I got where you had to put the top on the framework after it was partially open...

and guess what?
5 gallon buckets of water will hold down the canopy legs...
just loop a rope around the bucket handle and tie it up the leg a bit...
can even set the leg inside the bucket to save space...
