Fiamma awning on a Pleasureway Traverse (or GTRV)?

Has anyone mounted a fiamma awning on a Pleasureway Traverse? What brackets did you use? Just for note the Traverse roof extends into the rain gutter so I don't think Ray's brackets will work. I think the Traverse top is similar to the GTRV from what I've read.

If I can find the box that I have with Ray's brackets in my garage, I can give them a try on my Traverse. My guess is they will fit, because the Traverse roof still leaves the majority of the OEM raingutter clear.


It's 5 degrees out in my garage and outside right now, so it won't be today! :-)

They’ll fit and work awesome. You’ll probably just have to drill for your awning.

Are the "Ray's brackets" the custom made for Sportsmobile poptop brackets? I think these will work for the GTRV/Traverse. I will probably have Neil at Ujoint make me something similar for mine.

Just out of curiosity, GTRV had to of made the poptop for Pleasureway in their BC location?

Yes, but not just for SMB. They grab the rain gutter on any E-series. I've never seen a top they wouldn't work on.

There's a huge thread, or two or three, here somewhere with pics.

New batch of bracket sets coming in three to four weeks. Let me know if you want a set.

Re: All Econoline vans including GTRV and Pleasureway - the main concern is the amount of filler in the gutter. If there is little to no lip (the vertical part), then the putty or filler needs to be dug out / ground down enough to allow the clamp to get a bite against the vertical lip to keep the bracket from sliding off horizontally.
