    sort of like the Fiamme or whatever awnings they use on Westies....they work fine, never seen the ARB one, but require you have the feet out.....so either on the ground or on the car to keep it up. Not too heavy from what I recall.....
    It's about people and the Land Rovers that own them.

    Seriously?
    That is copy & paste from the ARB website.

    Yep, it works quite well and is long enough. Easy to pull out and in. A few months after I bought it, I found out that ARB does not make them, a third company manufactures and sells them to ARB and Ironman. It turns out Ironman's is cheaper.

    MuletCRCR - do you have to tie down the legs when in use?

    Good call. It is much cheaper than ARB but I would imagine shipping from Australia to the US on something that big would probably make them about equal in price for the US buyer.

    For reference, here is the Ironman awning link.

    You don't have to if it is not windy since it stays put, but I would recommend it. It comes with the pegs and guide ropes for a reason.
