    Default Easiest way to secure awning to T5 Kombi?

    I have searched and searched thinking it would be a popular topic but I cant find a single thread on how to fit an awning to a T5.

    I would not like to put a roofrack on so Im just curious if there is an easy but strong way to secure an awning. We live in Namibia and travel extensively and remotely throughout Namibia for work. Dirt road conditions can be bad so we need something that can take the punishment.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Id be lying if I told you that knew anything about them. So I dont really have a specific one in mind. Whatever is affordable, good quality and quick to set up. It just made sense to figure out whether the T5 can take some sort of bracket before I do too much research.

    Im also open to any recommendation!

    Like I said we travel frequently and end up having 30-60 lunch breaks on the side of the road. Would also be handy when camping. Id like a 3x3 since we have a long wheel base version T5.

    I got mine from the guy that made the awning, try a camping place or maybe a aluminium place.
