I’m planning to fit the F45s wind out canopy to my T6 transporter for short stops. I will also be using a drive away awning for longer stays.
Can you tell me please do I need to have a separate awning rail as well as the F45s or does the F45s have a channel that a drive away awning can be...
Hi, Brand new on this forum today. I have a T6 SWB and want to get a wind out awning professionally fitted. I don't want something bolted on the roof bars but want something that sits low and does not have a gap between the roof and the awning that will let rain in. I would appreciate your...
So, yet another decision that needs making. 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. The Reimo one seems to have an integral gutter, which I assume the VW one doesn't?
I saw a video on youtube how to fit the 3 piece aluminium C rail on the roof channel but the video showed an extremely rough and ready method.

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?

I am sure this will of been asked in the past but I'm new to the group.
I am having my T6 fully converted in a few weeks and need some kind of awning rail.
I do not like the grenade launcher look of the fiamma or do I want to stick a multi rail on the side of my van.
I am going to be fitting a Reimo multi rail this weekend, do I need to put primer on the back of the rail ? or can I just use Sikoflex 221 on its own ? if I require a primer can anyone recommend one please ? If required I was hoping to pick some up from our local screwfix
I am looking for an awning rail that will fit under OEM roof bars.
One I have seen is this one from Camper Essentials. It uses the OEM roof bar holes so no need to drill.
Wondering if anyone has one of these and can give feedback, or have you found a similar one?
I’m pretty close to buying a Vango air beam drive away awning, but am baffled by the various ways of attaching it to my van!
I have a T6 Kombi with no roof rails or pop up roof, so have the roof rack bolts which I can use.
