They lowered the awning about 4" closer to the roof than what the mounting brackets that came with it did.
I figured that two would work but the way the cross bars are configured it left almost half the awing stick out front and I figured it would vibrate or flap while I was driving, so I bodged up a third bracket at for the front cross bar.
I am considering moving the whole awning and crossbars forward about 6" to cover more of the side door.

No issues with rear door clearance?

No issues with door clearance side or rear.
The Foxwing awning pretty well sit horizontal when deployed.
