(A little off subject matter for the original post, but...)
Ed, Here is the rack moved 6-inches above the rain gutter. Also with the awning shown.
Not having a SMB "yet" to measure, I have had to make numerous educated guesses when it comes to dimensions etc. in my 3D model. (The model really helps to visualize the options I need to consider.)
I didn't think there was enough room to mount a bracket near the passenger door, so the front end of the rod is cantilevered from a bracket behind the side door.
I think I like this solution better than the Fiamma awning. There is vitually no weight (when driving) with this rack, and therefore hopefully eliminate the cracking that Geoff has (in 7-17-07 post). Less expensive, the Kelty can be set up as a typical awning or down like you have it in your photo for more protection.
Just one of the 200+- odd options I need to consider for my build.
