Shade is a commodity like water where we amble. Trees are sparse in the land that we travel and we’ve depended on an awning for the decade we’ve been doing this.
This is our third awning, our second ARB and I was surprised to find some improvements in the product when I slipped it out of its shipping tube.
Gone is the envelope design of the case. This one is tailored, boxed at the ends to better fit the rolled awning with an inverted pouch on both ends to keep the zipper tabs.
Nothing else has changed and doesn’t need to. The friction cams on the legs lock tight, the channel material and junction hardware are machined to tuck away and stay put.
The awning is mounted to the Apex Roof Rack using four 3/4 inch rubber lined zinc plated clamps on the vertical stanchions and two 1″ clamps on the top rail, under $7 for a solid mount.
