Hi.
I too would like a set to mount a Foxwing Awning on the drivers side.
Is the set 3 piece, all gutter mount, 2 particially below and one on gutter
and up( like Sportsmobile mount)? Or just three brackets, all same?
Doug.

Okay Guys!

Next batch of Z-Brackets has been ordered just in time for Spring/Summer. ETA to me is three weeks. Here is what we have coming:

15 sets of the 3 pc. Fiamma style for the E Series vans, powder coated black, SS hardware to mount to the gutters, with the black plastic caps to cover the nuts.
Cost bumped because of lower qty and other cost increases. $187 including shipping via US Priority mail. (Actually, still great price since the originals were not powder coated, did not have SS hardware, did not have protective pads or the covering plastic decorative caps)

I have two sets left of the two pc ARB/CVT brackets. I am not making anymore of these. These two are $155 each including postage.

Payment is via PayPal. I will send out a PM re: payment info.

For those who want to mount ARB/CVT - The 3 pcs set works as well. Just use the front and rear bracket set (put the middle one away for safe keeping if you score a Fiamma in the future). There is a slight bend at the top of the three pc front and rear mounts. You can mount the ARB/CVT back extrusion just below this bend or on the face of the bend. I feel the ARB/CVT awnings only need one T Bolt in each of the two brackets, but it is totally your call in mounting your awning and brackets.

maxx - No clue if they would work on a 98 Dodge. Where are you located? Perhaps someone near you is getting a set and you can see how they play.

pjpvl - Phil - Checking to see if we can include a one center pc. I expect we can - will advise.

3 pc Fiamma

Doug - These will work on either side of the rig. Check out the pics at the beginning of this thread. All three brackets clamp to the gutter, no holes in the van body. The front bracket is bent to clear the top of the door and rest against the B Pillar behind the front door. The middle and rear brackets rest against the van body. The flat resting surfaces against the side of the van have protective padding to protect the body paint.

Let me know if any questions. Thanks!!

So long as there is a gutter exposed, it should work, this pic should give you an idea of the clamping surface needed:

Awh shoot, i was afraid of that. I'm looking at pics of the cruiser top and looks as though the top goes right up close to the drip rail.

If anyone with a cruiser top can confirm our findings for sure would be super helpful?

How about mounting right to (through) the fiberglass top with some nice looking, but stout backing plates?

One concern might be the curvature along the side of top and the need for a spacer of sorts, but if mounted closer to the lower edge it might work. Then you could use the brackets that come with the Fiamma itself. I have a an extra set if you need them.
