Mount hoist outside

i need to mount a hoist frame to the side of my 2008 rockwood signature ultralight 5th wheel. How do I find frame members? The hoist frame extends 3’ and swivels so I can load 150lb case through the front door. Don’t know if I have it correct but I calculated 360 lb-ft. Can frame withstand that? I could mount to awning support but not sure if it would support, i.e. Not pull the awning off the wall. Hoist frame is basically a top-supported cantilever so the horizontal member would push into the wall and the top angled support would pull on the wall. I have left message at manufacture contact I was given by dealer with no response.
