Picked up at the store, awesome setup there. Was not expecting a hifi stereo store layout of vehicle upgrade options. Store staff were great to deal with. Had to order a mount from another merchant, but more than happy with 4WP.

3.0No mounts YIKES
Purchased but doesnt come with and mounts. for a couple hundered dollars it should come with 'L" brackets at minumum. now i have an awning just sitting in my basement until i get the brackets. ALSO the metal channel on the bottom was bent. there is now way to get the bolts to slide into the channel without bending the WHOLE channel. BAD quality control.

3.0Good Awning...Mounting Can Be Tricky
So I bought the universal ARB Awning Bracket - 813402 and installed them to the top of the cross bars of my 2008 Toyota 4Runner stock rack. Unfortunately after installing the awning with the logo facing right side up, there wasn't enough space to unzip the awning case.
The zipper is facing the ground when installed correctly (using the universal mount setup) and when unzipping the case, the zipper is stopped by the rail of my roof rack, making it impossible to unzip the case. So
I had to uninstall the awning and reinstall it upside down. Now the logo is upside down and the zipper is facing up to the sky (probably not great for stopping water from getting in).
The awning was then upside down (LED lights and awning legs now facing up to the sky). Luckily, the awning frame has a top and bottom track to slide the awning sleeve into (probably in case you have to flip the awning over). So I unscrewed two set screws holding the awning sleeve in place and slid it out, flipped over the awning, and pulled the sleeve through the top track. Unfortunately while pulling the awning sleeve through the top track, it caught on the aluminum frame and ripped some of the sleeve material that wrapped around the plastic tube that makes the sleeve stay in the track. Bummer!
It would be nice if there was more information provided by ARB or suppliers of ARB awnings, showing some different ways to install the ARB awning to different kinds of racks.
Hopefully the ripped sleeve material doesn’t unravel and cause problems down the road. I may need to sew it up to reinforce it.

Delivered damaged, and the person I was emailing stopped replying.
This product shipped very quickly and the material seems pretty durable and is reinforced in all the right places. I love the hanging storage and lights. It is easy to set up and pack up. The size makes setup or take down much easier with two people, but it is doable on your own. We have had great weather while using it, but I'm a little concerned if it rains, water might pool in the middle if you don't make the front legs shorter to create an angle. I took off one star because the metal back with the mounting channel was damaged during shipping. It is still usable, so we decided not to deal with the exchange. I purchased the delux room as well and I love the bug proof addition and all the attachments you can add onto the awning.
5.0Some of the best money I've spent
Love this awning! Great construction, easy to install, easy to deploy, rides great on the rig. The LED lightship is better than I expected, and that's saying a lot from ARB. If you want an 8ft awning with plenty of extras to add down the road, this is exactly what you're looking for.

Great product. This thing is awesome. Sets up and breaks down in minutes. Ordered the room to go with it. No fault of 4WP but it took 8 weeks to receive this awning due to it being out of stock. I was aware of it when ordering it. Just want to let others know.

4.0Quality control not 100%. I'd say 98%
Over all great product. Holds up well. Blocks the sun well. Just an issue with the right middle hook and loop tie down for the awning, has holes in the fabric from a mistake made from the manufacturer. You can notice they didn't line it up correctly and sewed the fabric. Twice. Now I have holes where the sun peaks through and I believe water would be able to go though when it rains. Other than that no issues.
