We have fitted Big Country Ostrich wing awnings to a couple of club members trucks this year.

The most straightforward was fitting to Mike and Linda’s 130 ambulance conversion where we were able to simply drill through the roof and mastic the holes then use the factory fittings to attach the awning, including the z bracket which adds the strength at the rear of the fitment.

A more complicated set up was required to engineer fitment to Mark and Chesca’s 110 fitted with a tubular roof rack.

First a length of 38 x 38 x 4.8 mm angle was fitted to the roof rack using 2 stainless awning (L) mounts from Tufftrek and 2 builders ties from B&Q. the mounts were fitted to the roof rack and tied in for extra security, then the angle fitted the full length of the roof rack.

Next the factory awning mounts were fitted by drilling through the angle  and the z bracket was fitted across the rear of the rack and tied in for security.

The awning was then fitted to the mounts.
