Here are some photos of the awning on the Sprinter van with the Penthouse Top. These mounts are for use with the Fiamma F45 awning. More information on pricing to follow.

Re: Awning for Penthouse Sprinter

Just got the magnets today and rigged up a simple poly tarp. Works great. Easy to put up and take down. I will have to wait until there is some wind and rain to see how it holds up. To protect the paint I put the tarp in between rather than tying the tarp into the eye of the magnet.

Ordered a Kelty 9x9 tarp. Should be here by the end of the week. I will see if it is any better.

Thanks for the tip.

The magnets fit perfectly into the Sprinter channel on the roof with the poptop. I use a thin cloth to make sure magnets don't scratch paint. For safety I take a velcro strap and attach it to sliding door bar when closed or open (this way not even strong wind gusts can lift it off.

It works great.

Awning for Penthouse Sprinter

I picked my Sprinter with penthouse and Fiamma awning two months ago and have no problems. The brackets are holding up fine even with lots of Death Valley Washboard.

Awning for Penthouse Sprinter

I am designing a sportsmobile sprinter on the LB chassis and am wondering if it is worth getting the awning? If you've had good or bad experiences with the awning, please let me know.
