    Hi John,

    You can fit a 4m F45i subject to no side marker lights, fairly easy to DIY fit, if you need any advice on fitting give us a call.

    Comes with standard mounting brackets etc.

    If you order on the phone mention FUN and get your discount:thumb:

    Personnaly, I would say the biggest you can, sorry not familiar with your 'van.

    We had a 22ft C Class RV and went with the 4 meter which was perfect, and happens to be the largest one before the price seems to go berserk!

    Advantage for size from our point of view, if the weathers iffy (raining) you still get good shelter whithout the need for the sides, not that you're supposed to use them in the rain according to the distructions:Blush:

    Makes me laugh as the 4 meter comes with the extra rafter for poor weather and advise on awning straps etc etc.

    Si.

    Hi John.

    It depends on what you are going to use it for,if it is just as a sunshade you can get away with a smaller one. If you want it as a full awning and you are going to put sides and a front on then you will need a larger version, to give you room.:BigGrin::BigGrin:
    You beat me to it Dodgey

    If you can let us know maybe we can answer in more detail.

    the biggest you can afford....:thumb:

    measure the longest FLAT surface...usually between the front pod/front panel molding and the rear panel molding.

    must be on a full length continuous flat surface

    my last kontiki had an awning slightly too long and was mounted ON the pod/front panel molding at the front and had to be packed off the rest of the van side.
    who ever fitted it used plywood packers which rotted in time and the awning came loose on its fixings.:Doh:

    we have the F55pro on the current kontiki which is around 14ft/16ft long.
