For a tie down anchor point I'm thinking of using so called "Keder Stop" in Germany.
See attached picture. At the moment I'm not sure about the diameter,size of the front rail.
My Fiamma F45s 300 black just arrived yesterday to replace my ARB awning, which I love. So today I might be able to check the diameter.
But first I have to work on a solution to put that thing up on my roof rack.



Also I suggest using Thule hold down strap side kit since the fastener/lock is made of steel instead of plastic as on the Fiammas Tie Down S kit.

Here you can see how my roof rack is setup. I plan to put the Fiamma on the same place as the ARB sits. Not to hang it on the side as most people do.


My intention is that is is better supported there and I have a better chance to stop rain getting under the awning though the gap between body and awning.
My ARB has got a Keder rail where I simply was able to insert a cord with attached canvas.

For those just getting into using their Fiamma: I found 2 spots that rub offroad/ on wash boards.
I will now try to patch it up with some teflon or similar to avoid serious damage. Especially for spot 1 I was surprised how ďbad it isĒ after a single tour and perhaps 200 miles on dirt/ washboard.

Spot 1: about 2Ē inwards from the upper leg mount

I used some paper towels + 2 velco straps around the closed the awning for now, but will need to find a permanent solution.

Happy to learn how and where exactly you did some TLC so avoid rubbing/ rattling!

Hey guys

Ray gave me a call as he was interested in my marks and we figured out where they come from.

1. The Minor One
This one is at the top of the legs where they tilt out.
Itís slightly hitting this corner here. Iíll solve it by using a thinner felt pad.

2. The Serious One
The serious one is about 4Ē away from the link of the awning roof.
It has been caused because I slid in the legs fully before tilting them up for storage. And the roof mechanism was shrubbing on the rivet of the leg stand. Looks like it can easy be solved by not pushing the leg fully in!

NOT like this

I will still use a felt pad and make a mark on my legs, but I guess itíll be solved easy!

Thanks for following up and taking care Ray!
