I have been looking at this awning on u tube and the FWC site . Also found a similar product Fox wing awning for approximately $ 1000 less. Has anyone had any experience with either of these products.

Looks like they are on sale right now for $472.00.   Might be a good deal if they work well.

How do you mount it to a FWC or ATC? Looks like it would not work well attached to crossbars on the roof.

Are the supports long enough to reach the ground from a popped-up camper?

How would it be opened or closed once the top is up or would the top be popped up after the awning is deployed?

Anyone have photos of one mounted on a pop up camper?

Confused in Hillsboro. ;)

I've been looking at the Batwing awning.  The company that makes this awning also makes one called the Manta.  I've tried contacting the person that sells these in the US without luck.  I'm curious about how to install one of these awnings.

FWC sell Eezi Awn ones now. They don't mount to the top of the pop up part but to the body of the camper in the same place the Fiamma ones do.

I just called FWC and asked about the brackets used for mounting one of these.  FWC makes a proprietary bracket that they do not sell to the public.  FWC only sells their brackets to dealers for dealer install of this Batwing awning.  That means you will have to DIY a bracket for attachment onto your camper.  Also these Batwing awnings are back ordered right now.

I just ordered one of the Rhino-Rack Foxwing awnings for my new Fleet. I plan to mount it to two 1" square solid aluminum rods that bolt onto the two jack brackets. That way I can remove it when I don't need to use it, and no drilling holes in my new camper. I should have it in a week or so. I'll post some photo when I get it finished.
