I have posted some instructions here:Let me know how this goes, I would like to add these to my G500 but it appears I would have to do some body work to get them to fit.
Here in the Great Basin it is hot and dry about half of the year. To fight the heat I added a 99" awning from CVT. While the awning came with mounting brackets, I purchased awning mounting brackets from Baja Rack because they provide a more secure mounting system and they are compatible with my Baja Rack. It only took about 1 hour to install the awning. I can see this becoming one of my favorite mods.
It is my first awning but it appears to be well built. I have had the CVT tent for a while and it has been a fantastic tent. The Awning appears to come from the same supplier. It has aluminum poles and an aluminum frame. The cover is a heavy duty water proof material. The awning is secured by 3 buckles that hold the awning in place and then you have a heavy duty cover that zips closed. You have a 3" aluminum rail that runs the length on the awning that mounts the awning to vehicle.Nice!
Is the CVT awning easy to deploy. Does it seem to be built well?
Also, don't run over the white cat (pic #3).
No problem, I am sure you would be happy with the quality and functionality of the awning. Bobby is a good guy over there at CVT.Thanks,
I'm in the market for one and have been asking around. Something simple, quick, light and sturdy. I'll check them out. Thanks again.
