How to Train Tecoma capensis Cape Honeysuckle Along a Fence

How can I train a Tecoma capensis along a fenceline, allowing space to replace the fence someday? I gather that this vine scrambles, so I would need to put up some support and then manually wind the new growth along those supports, until it becomes hardwood. Is there a straightforward way to put out the support lines in front of the fence, or maybe it would be better to build a small pergola and let it run overhead?
