What Brackets do I need for my Fiamma Awning ?

The brackets you need will depend on whether you are installing the awning on a Motorhome Conversion or a Panel van Conversion or indeed a Caravan.

Fiamma F45s / F45L Awnings do come with standard installation awning brackets and the number and length of these will depend on the awning length. (The longer the awning the more brackets are used)

Some Vehicles have specific brackets for them such as Fiat Ducato / Peugeot Boxer / Citroen Relay have a bracket for roof mounted F80 awnings which fit onto original vehicle roof studs and thereby mean an easier install as no drilling of the roof required. Other Motorhome brands also have specific brackets such as Hymer Motorhomes which have full length awning brackets available.

What Length Fiamma Awning do I need ?

Van Conversions tend to have fixed length fiamma awnings dependant upon their wheelbase i.e. whether it is a MWB / LWB etc, however Motorhomes do have some variance depending on how big a canopy you need and if anything is in the way. If considering a wall mounted awning then be aware of having sufficient height above doors and be aware of any mouldings as these can prevent installation or require the use of a spacer called an Adaptor D which comes in either 8cm or 12cm width versions which can be used to space out the awning from the side of the van to accommodate mouldings and similar obstructions.
