Here are a few of the ShadyBoy while still on the Westy.
Closed up, you can see the length.
Deployed, it extends up over the front door and an equal distance to the back.
Here it is with the aluminum poles extending to the ground (preventing downdrafts), and the tent cords extending diagonally back to the van (preventing updrafts). It was windy (and hot) here.

When I get my E350 back next week, I will post photos of the mounted SlimShady. As I mentioned in the other thread, it was attached to my Westfalia with self-tapping screws, but GTRV may come up with another option for mounting it to the Ford.
Edit to add:
There are quite a few more photos at Country Homes Campers
, including different mounting options and a video of the awning being set up. Mine was mounted to the Vanagon similar to this:
Note that the pop top would cover the screws when closed.
