    Default Awning fitment

    A friend gave me a new 3 meter long Eezi-Awn awning. Due to its length and weight I will have to support the awning at both the cab and loadbox ends. I have a roofrack fitted over the cab and an AluCab canopy on the back. Does anyone know how much flex there is between the cab and a loadbox of a Hilux in off-road / gravel road conditions? What are the chances of damaging the awning or fitting points? I have seen this configuration on Hiluxes before and I suppose it's OK for smooth terrain.

    Any ideas or suggestions shall be appreciated.

    I would get 2 lengths of stainless steel tube for the back of the awning and then just mount on the roof rack.
    Lusted for a Landy but the Pajero was sexier and bigger in the right departments, just like my Missus.
