Awning.

Has anyone tried the ARB Awning, looks like an awesome investment for the rig for camping!. If you do have it, how does it fit???.. Any pictures post them please .

Re: Awning.

Several members have them and seem to like them. Definitely a fine product.

One alternative to consider would be fiamaa which has a hard outer case which prevents the awning from getting wet and uses latches instead of the zipper. Also makes it fairly easy for a single person to install or setup.

Re: Awning.

Luke at "Fourtreks" has mounts to fit the ARB awning.
They are a quality product and very easy to fit.

Re: Awning.

Awesome!, yea i think it would be an excellent investment since i camp a lot. Thanks for the hard-case suggestion, this might be a good thing to buy as well. I would still like to see some pics .

Nice, looks good... Does the arb awning not come with mounts?, or do you have to get aftermarket ones?.

Re: Awning.

The Fourtreks ARB awning mounts also fit the Ironman awning perfectly.

Re: Awning.

As far as I'm aware, ARB don't supply the mounts, coz we all have different racks to attach to.
Ironman supply an "L" bracket which you can use with the Fourtreks which makes it easy if you wanna position it ..lower or higher on the rack.

I have the "Ironman" awning with the "Fourtreks" mounts.
I would recommend the Fourtreks mounts to everyone. They ain't the cheapest product out there, but IMO, definitely the best.

Re: Awning.

Here's the Fiamaa (just tossed all the misc. pictures I had of it up). I used the fourtreks mounts and drilled the awning accordingly to mount

Re: Awning.

Yea for sure, i see that Ironman is based out of Australia?.. How much did you pay for the awning?. Where did you buy it?.
