Being told by a company who quoted to fit a F45s that they rivet and bond the awning straight onto the van, Is this quite normal and are there any pitfalls ?, Always had a rail on previous two occasions
Our 1st proper trip in our brand new T6. Came back from our walk to find awning had sheered off, another camper had lifted it back up. The articulated arm had sheered off and then a pool of water had caused the bracket rivets to fail. Hence the awning fell and scratched our 6 week old van...
I looking to fit a Fiamma f45 to my T6 which has a Vamoose multi rail. Looking on Fiamma's website they list several kits for fitting to multi rails ranging from Reimo, Vamoose etc.
What recommendations/experience does anyone have of there Combi rail kit or their other kits?
I am considering a wind out F45s for the van. Currently has roof rails fitted which I use. As it's the LWB I have the second from the front mounting point free and the one at the rear jus in front of the very back point. They are nearly 1.7m apart. Would these be able to be utilised to fit the...
Does anybody conclusively know whether the F45 material is the same as the F35 , I have read in 1 item description the F35 is water resistant in light rain . Also while I am asking I keep seeing "left hand drive " versions does it actually make a difference if used with UK spec adapters?
Looking for your opinions for the best wind out awning - Fiamma 45S or Thule Omnister?
Also, any recommendations of professional fitters in the Cardiff area to fit to a T6 with skyline pop top would be appreciated.
I'm looking for a Fiamma 45s 260 in black ideally with the brackets for the 'C' Rail (aka factory roof bar prep) if anyone has one for sale.
If no Fiamma I'll be tempted by any Thule ones out there too in Anthracite
Thanks in advance
Just test erected my new (to me) Kampa Air awning....
....the Kador strip on the figure of 8 kit I bought is nice and easily slideable unlike the slot on the front of the F45s van awning. Seems pretty tight. I'm sure they are both 6mm slots. Is there a technique to it or an easy cheat I could...
I am still torn between getting Fiamma F45 installed to our conversion, or a Reimo multirail, with the option of then installing a wind out awning to it. The van will be a daily driver so I am wondering if having one fitted will be something that I regret. Also, I will definitely be...
I would like to fit a Fiamma canopy to our T6, the problem is we have a Austop popup roof fitted and it looks like the roof will fail the bracket when lowered.
Has anybody fitted these brackets to a T6 with a Austop? ps. the brackets i am looking at air the ones that bolt in to the gu
I've added the light privacy room to my F45s, but in the sun last weekend it would have been lovely to have had a bit of outside shade. This could be achieve by inserting a tarp in to the upper channel on the front of the extended awning.
Has anyone bought/used anything that does this?
Hello! We have just bought a Fiamma 45s awning for our T6. We currently have roof rails. Has anyone fitted an awning an kept roof rails? Does anyone have any fitting tips or a video as we’ve been looking but can’t seem to find any advice out there any the instructions aren’t very clear. Any help...
Hi all, first post here. Just joining team black this week as we pick-up our stock standard 16 plate highline kombi and embark on a 2 year fit out process leading to a full camper. For this year I want to get it booked in straight away for a pop-top (going to go with skyline aurora unless anyone...
New to the world of campervans and just got myself a T6.1 camper.
Want a Fiamma F45s fitting and struggling to find anyone in the Essex area who can do it. Contacted a couple of companies but they have not got back to me, seem very busy so probably a low priority job for them.
