    AFAIK the 'fixing kit' is basically a set of straps that you throw over the top of the van and peg down on the other side, so no need to put a rail or anything else on your van, this is the easiest way to do it if you intend to keep attaching and detaching to go off site - you can use the 'figure of 8' kit to attach it to an existing roll out awning (ie Fiamma/Omnistor) and although it's not overly difficult, it's not as easy as the straps.

    As it's 3m wise you won't have a problem with your sliding door being fully opened - the smaller version is only 2.4m wide so restricts the opening. Height shouldn't be a problem either due to the straps to take the slack out of the tunnel material (it was pain on the older ones without this as it moved around in the wind like a set of bellows!). As for a carpet - this won't come with one (or they never used to!) so you can put down whatever you want but you'll probably find that the removable groundsheet is more than sufficient, we tend to use some mats just to wipe or put our shoes etc on to save walking them muck inside, at least that way you don't have a carpet to clean, just a mat!
