Anyone have a Fiamma F45 awning? 

How durable is it?

Would you buy another?

 

Thanks for any info

We have one on the back - it seems to be well made and durable - never had an issue with it.  In fact I'm looking to buy another and put it on the side of the camper.

I had one on my Bobcat, and liked it. A very nice unit. The only complaint I had was with the truck windows down and on rough roads, it rattled a bit.

I have a similar awning on my hard side, and it is great as well.

New FWC owner easy to use engineering and materials seam solid. Looks great on the camper as well. 500 miles on the rig happy with all.

I had an ARB on my truck before i got the camper, and the quality was just trash.

 

I wasnt hesitant to get it with the camper, but read enough good things, i tried it anyway.

 

It VERY VERY well made and easy to deploy solo.

 

Highly recommend!

Had one on a casita. Also had an F35 on a small truck camper. Very well made, pretty sturdy, but it ease the ease of use that has me sold. I also had an airstream with their awning and hands down, the fiamma f45 is the best all around. I really like the ability to support the awning on the vehicle itself, really convenient. The f35 is great as well, a lot simpler engineering wise but more effort to deploy and retract.

I have one on my FWC Hawk and love it. I have had a myriad of awnings on my other trailers and this is by FAR the best. I agree with the "rattle" but I need to research as I think someone posted a solution. I don't think you could go wrong with it.

Great topic. I’m still on the hunt for that “perfect” 😂 awning after owning/using an ARB and RR Batwing.

I have one and like it, except for the rattle.   

 

Any proven solutions to quiet the rattle?  I am thinking a rubber voile ski strap around the whole casing may work, but if anyone else has a solution, I am all ears.
