Do you mean a fabric awning or a hard hinged awning?
I used the aluminum sheet that I cut out of the side of the truck for my window as the sheet for my window awing. I built an aluminum frame out of 1.5" alum angle and channel, then stiffened it with a 1" alum square tube grid pattern in the center. 
That left room to put small LED lighting strips in the panel and add styrofoam hardboard insulation and i lined the bottom/inside with FRP I had left over from the walls of the truck.
