The middle bracket does not have the bend because the gutter is arched and not all vans are the same. If the middle bracket was also bent to carry the awning, the awning would likely either not rest on it or would teeter/pivot on it negating the load being carried by the two outer brackets.

You may have pop top clearance issues on the backside of the brackets if you mount the Fiamma brackets to the Z Brackets.

Thanks. Any idea when the next batch will be shipped? I ordered on the last week of November.

The gutter also bows out, front to back. Due to this bow in the gutter, I added wooden shims to the front and rear bracket faces so the three awning attach points would all fall in line. Took about 3/8" on both ends to achieve this. Shims were made from marine plywood and were "weather-proofed" with epoxy prior to final assembly.
