Re: Rubber Nutserts for Awning Brackets
I put an awning on a friend's Vanagon a few months ago. I used "rivnuts" from McMaster Carr. I think i used 5 mm ones since his van is all metric. I didnt want to drill holes that were 6 MM, so i just used 3 rivnuts per bracket and i made 4 brackets. i have pics of this installation and will post to the gallery later. The tool to use is expensive, but i had one for other uses. they might have a tool available which you can use with 2 wrenches rather than the tool i have. when you get onto mcmaster site, look for 'rivet nuts'. they have them with a rubber seal that touches the van body. they seemed to work ok....no complaints yet.
