Has anyone with a SMB-nstalled Fiamma awning successfully modified a Thule screen room to fit it?
The issue is lack of a channel on the van-side of the awning holder. The Thule awning has one. The screen room uses that channel. There are also differences in channel location on the awning bar away from the van, but there are easy ways of making that work.
I see a channel (made by Dometic) for sale that goes on the van and is held there by a magnetic strip along the roof. The mounting that SMB used for the awning would clearly interfere, but I'm wondering if anyone has successfully either mounted a channel where it would not be a problem (under the existing awning holder) or by cutting the magnetic channel into 3 pieces to avoid the supports for the Fiamma awning.
The rest of the screen room looks easy assuming that the van-side gets adequately attached.
I rains a lot here esp. in summer, and bugs come with the rain. While Fiamma has a room, it looks very cumbersome. The Thule one seems much better designed if it can be made to work.
