    Drive away awning rails

    Are there any drive away awning rails that fit to the van using the roof bar mounting bolts? I’ve sen the OEM awning rail that needs to be bonded on and bent into shape, not really a DIY job. Got me wondering if there are bolt on solutions?

Our converter will fit either the Reimo or the VW rail, they are both same price, apparently the VW one looks a bit neater, but I can't find any pictures of it.

    Can anyone tell me if this Awning Rail fits without having to trim the existing Spacers / Plastic Seals when using with VW OEM (Omtec) Roof Rails? The alternative Camper Essentials one seems to require new, purpose designed Spacers.
