I've moved mine a few times with the roof raised like in the picture I posted above, and nothing has gone wrong. Go slow and keep your wits about you. You can't worry about this stuff too much. People think these things are as fragile as glass, but not so. I don't have A/C on mine. So my roof is about 6 feet wide x 10 feet long. It's made mostly of foam, a little bit of fiberglass, and some strips of 1/2 inch plywood around it all. Add in the weight of a 35 lbs awning and you probably have 100 lbs in total. This is being held up by 4 steel posts that are operated by a steel cable strong enough to pull a small car out of a ditch. Nothing bad is going to happen, but do what you feel safe with.
