    Just came across this on craigslist

    Anyone have any experience with these awnings? Looks like it could be a great addition to the topper. I'd put it on the back of the topper over the tailgate

    Go for it....if you don't like it, you could always sell it for what you pay for it

    I would have already bought that thing if I was in Colorado. I'd love to have something like that. And like was said above, if you don't like it I'm sure you could sell it for the same amount you buy it for.

    Seems like you can get the same one, brand new, for a few bucks more

    They also have a 2500mm for $220 which is probably what I'd get.

    I'm just unsure, by the guy's pictures, of how it mounts.

    I'd want to be able to only mount it when pulled up to the campsite, but also don't want a a huge bracket on my topper at all times. Not to mention, would the fiberglass of the topper be able to handle the weight (and potential drag if windy)?

    Some quick research shows that it has to mount to a roof rack of sorts.
