I use these with an 8' ARB awning. Drill the 2 mounting bolt holes into each bracket face and you're good to go. I use all 3 brackets. I figured I might as well.. no harm done and it adds even more security. My ARB awning will not be flying off anytime soon!

Just wanted to report the new awning brackets arrived here in Maine on Wednesday eve. I've been sitting on the Fiamma awning 1der sent a month ago, and I am excited to give installation of the brackets and awning this weekend. They look rugged, great hardware, and the instructions and video make it look possible for this amateur.

No holes until the ones I put in to install the screws that came with your brackets.

In for information on fitment with tufport hightop as well. I'm getting the hightop in about a month and currently have the Fiamma 45s on my rig. Would hate to get rid of it if I can't mount it on the gutter with these brackets.

When will these be in stock again?

If allowed, does anyone have a third (middle) bracket they don't need, that I can buy off you?

My current setup has a flat middle, and offset ends, which bows out my ARB awning in the middle. While it worked fine with the soft case, I just bought a hard case and there's too much pressure on the middle bracket for it to work.

Thanks! Nino

Hi Ldo, the TufPort top is a nice top. I believe from the pictures I have seen that gutter mounting will be difficult without notching the bottom edge of the fiberglass.

I have also been told the TufPort tops have a wood reinforcement that runs down the side of the top. Personally, I would have no issues mounting my awning to the side of a fixed top. It will require only two mounting points about 18" in from each end, and a wedge to compensate for the curvature of the fiberglass. Through bolted with a backing plate and use of a polyurethane or lap sealant around the holes will provide a waterproof connection.

Post up some pictures of the top to gutter interfaces at the B pillar, just behind the side cargo door and about 8 ft back from the B pillar. Those pictures will give me an idea if the gutter mounts will work.

Is there a reason why the middle bracket is shorter and doesn't have the bent profile to hook onto the track like the two other ones?

I was hoping to bolt the Fiamma aluminum brackets to these and avoid additional drilling into the awning.
