Lots of ways to stop the awning sliding. If you always slide ON in one direction, a very descrete bend in the awning rail will stop the other end. You can also "thread" a large bolt to fit the rail after the awning is in place. It should be easy to unscrew by hand.
Took a look myself, I see what you mean, ouch! $20 a pair on eBay. Only listings are from UK. If it were me, I'd spend $12 in material and the better half of an afternoon making a pair (oh ya, lets add up the savings there! )
Seriously, there's got to be something one could use in place of those. hmmm

I drilled two tiny holes through the top and bottom of the end(s) of the awning rail. I found a small enough safety pin like clip in the specialized nuts and bolts section of the fastener section at a big box store. The straight part of the safety pin goes through the top and bottom acting as a stop. This is the type of safety pin I used.
I drilled the holes just big enough for the straight part of the safety pin to go through both holes and clip back on itself. Voila'.
I only had to drill the tiny holes on one end of the awning rail for my trailer.
