Pretty neat, eh?

Their blurb says that one needs Rhino Roof Cross Bars - while that might encourage sales of Rhino Roof Racks to new buyers it's also limiting their Foxwing sales if those of us who have opposition roof racks are unable to attach the Foxwing to, say, Rola bars.

The guy at the 4b show said it would fit any roof rack

There was a recent post on this awning saying rhino roof bars not needed. Do a search :)

Saw this at the caravan and camping show in Adelaide a week or so back. Ordered one on the spot. About the only drawback I can see is the very large surface area creates windage in a big way in small breezes. A design improvement would be to put some vent flaps in the thing the way they do in canvas signs etc.

From recollection it fits into the Rhino commercial racks but not sure how it will fit to anything else until we get our hands on one

Overall it looks to be pretty well designed and extremely easy and quick to setup and put back down

Regards

Rob

Its near horizontal and has a big opening and i suspect that it will relieve wind pressure adequately.

Its nifty and I look forward to some user feed back once you take delivery.

Clever isn't it?

The local ARB store had one on demo a couple of months back during their open day!

For me it'd be on the once I won Lotto list.

I was the one who opened the previous thread on the foxwing.
Ordered one straight away at the Adelaide C&C show...
I checked with TJM last week and was told they are not expected to arrive till about Easter.
Hopefully I can report on it soon after Easter!

Cheers, Dalb
