PostSubject: Securing driveaway awning to T2 Brazilian gutter rail   Sun Sep 03, 2017 8:15 pm

I have recently purchased a figure of 8 adapter to slid onto the end of my awning and the gutter rail on our van. The figure of 8 does not fix to the gutter rail so doesn't really work. Any ideas what produce I will need to do so securely??

The majority of Brazibay owners use the 'pole and clamp' method.

Here you go:

Pole & Clamp kit

Plenty of others available too, from Amazon, eBay, Just Kampers, Vango etc etc.

It depends on whether the awning has a sleeve to slide the pole through. If so, pole and clamp is definitely the best method. We also have a canopy which has beading for figure of eight but no sleeve. I have cut notches in the figure of eight so that I can use clamps and short pieces of tube to secure it to the gutter, because otherwise any gust of wind will blow it off.

We use both the pole and clamp and figure of eight for our sun canopy!

Most of the distance is the Vango pole and clamp, but having a roof rack on the front, the pole is too long to fit and won't go behind the roof rack, so is doubled back on itself in the canopy sleeve just behind the roof rack. The piece of the canopy between the feet of the roof rack is attached by a piece of figure of eight, with a metal tent peg in the end to ensure it stays put! lol!

Bizarre - possibly; functional - absolutely.

Goodness bumble. Belts and braces. We've used both (at different times) to connect our vango kela. Both have worked well but pole snd coamp feels more secure if windy
