what is the roof rack you have for the awning?New Overland Vehicle Systems Awning!
Just came in, modified the roof rack today to hold it and popped off the old ARB small awning. This one puts a whole lot of coverage around the side and back of the van (not many awnings are big enough) and actually cools down the interior by a noticeable amount

One of the poles does come down right next to the stove, but I think we're going to be redoing the kitchen soon so that won't be a big deal (or I can just leave it up). We still get great coverage over the pullout kitchen with just the last burner being outside the coverage of the awning.

Closed up it doesn't take up much length of the van, just 7 ft. It is rather thick though

Overall we're very happy with the new awning and how it works. Construction seems stout, welded aluminum hinges and it was holding up well to the wind while we were deploying it. Definitely looking forward to testing it out camping soon, but BBQing with neighbors on the 4th of July will have to suffice for it's first test run :)
We also got started on rebuilding and regearing the Dana 60. Just started tearing it down and cleaning it off

Custom built. I used work van ladder rack for the clamps that attach to the rain gutter and welded those to a giant U shape I bent out of 1"x1" square tubing. There are 8 clamps, 2 at the rear and 3 on either sidewhat is the roof rack you have for the awning?
Thanks! I really wanted to build an LMTV but the wife said no :(Nice truck interesting mods! If I need to go bigger than the BroncoSport a full size Econoline 4x4 is what it will be unless I can find a S&S M1078 cheap.
