Hi folks,
Want to put an. Awning on my lc200 which has an ARB alloy roof rack.

Really like the practicality of a freds arm and want to combine it with a Hannibal awning.

Only think is the black widow web by states only compatible with bw roof racks. The bw rack looks very similar to the arb rack.

Does anyone know if the Fred arm bracket can be used on an arb rack? If so will the freds arm work with s Hannibal awning?

Have a read of their web page.

"Fred's Arm will soon have adapter kits to suit other roof rack brands including ARB, TJM etc"

Maybe contact BW and ask when they will available.

Good video on that page also showing the arm in action.

Hi Kelvin,

You may want to check that the Freds Arm will work with the rear tailgate open. The silly spoiler on the 200 will likely interfere with it when in the rear position. I know several people who have removed the rear spoiler, I am considering it as it gets in the way when I carry kayaks on the roof.
