Hi Ray,

You and I have been in contact via text as well but I am posting here for reference to others who may have the same question.

I just ordered an ARB awning, 2000x2500. Will your brackets fit on this van for that application? My concern is the lack of space with the large windows and the close proximity of the top to the gutter.

Brackets work on window/passenger vans just fine. The brackets do not touch the windows. There needs to be about 5/8 of visible gutter inboard of the gutter lip. If the pop top extends to the lip then this presents an issue.

Re:ARB Awning - yes, this awning can be mounted to the brackets. Quite a number of people have mounted their ARB/CVT. To mount the awning T track, you will drill a hole in each bracket to receive the T bolt stud. You will not use the bend at the top which is designed for the Fiamma F45s. I can go over this in more detail on the phone.

Ray, i just ordered the 23Zero Peragrin shower enclosure. I would think your Z brackets would be perfect for mounting it. How do I arrange purchase?

That shower enclosure unit looks pretty cool, if will be interesting to see how this works out!

Payment for brackets is via PayPal using the Friends and Family payment portal. I consider all of us on the forum as friends. Payment to searay230@gmail.com - include your shipping and contact info in the Comments section. Thxs!

Ray -- I have a hightop from a conversion van company -- it seems there is some rain gutter exposed, but not much. Would posting a picture be enough for you to tell me if your brackets would fit my van?

I'm going with an ARB 2500 awning -- I'm thinking of just mounting it directly to the fiberglass topper, since I'm on a bit of a budget, but definitely like the idea of using your brackets if they're an option.

Fiamma is way out of the price range for now -- that'll be on van 3.0.

Ray, Thinking about putting a solar shower setup on the drivers side of my RB 350 crew(window) van Sportsmobile pop top. I have a Fiamma F45S awning on the other side with 3 brackets. I think I saw in post #312 that your brackets are the same and will work on a passenger van? (Rob in Santa Rosa).

Hi Rob, I have had many people ask about putting solar shower tubes on the brackets.

I have been reluctant to say yes because the shower tubes have a different type of load than an awning. Awning is static while a partially filled shower has sloshing water. How many gallons are you looking at for your shower? Also, has consideration been given to the shading a pop top will create relative to the tube?

The brackets fit passenger and cargo Econolines.

Thxs!
