    The driver side was pretty much straight (I forgot exactly what it was), but passenger was 6mm out between top and bottom extrusion. I’m assuming the extrusions are both cut equal length. The passenger side is a super tight fit which makes it hard to close. Most likely because the passenger side is “short” from the bowing.

    Anyone that has been to GFC lately have any info when the new awning brackets will be available?
    I went to order some on they’re website so I could have them for my install next month but the website says:

    “Currently on backorder due to design revision to add compatibility with more awnings/products.”

    They had a shot of the new design on instagram a few days ago. Think they're hoping to have them completed pretty soon if I recall correctly.

    I talked with them about it. Was given a "we'll have more info when everyone is back from expo". Fair enough, but not sure if that means they will start to stock them soon or made to order or what.

    I'm still really looking forward to that lighting kit.

    I made the mistake of looking in my email to see if i actually paid for it or not. The number of unanswered emails i've sent GFC is remarkable.

    I have to admit i have a perverse admiration for how GFC has developed a product that sells itself regardless of customer service.

    Just fyi, it's nothing like the original, and if I understood things correctly, they'll have a "basic" and EAF" version of the kits.

    Just get sumo mounts. I run the suction cup sumo mounts and have never had a hiccup.
    Keeping your rod rigged up 24/7 on top of your truck in a case just seems kind of lazy.
    I feel like those cases are more of a statement than anything. Why do you need your fly rods ready to go at the grocery store.
    Do they even fit a Spey rod?

    They don’t fit a Spey rod, but they might get you on the cover of a magazine. @macdadmorgan likes em.

    I can see the utility if you fish as much as Morgan does. For me they just stay in rod tubes. Though hopping from spot to spot for winter steelhead in the snow/ salt I’d much rather have the fully enclosed than on the hood with suction cups like i see up here getting bathed in salty road grime.

    To each his (or her) own.

    Oh nice, well, don't care about that. Just want to run between the spots to catch fish. Not make magazines.

    Fished with a guide who had one of these. Really nice and hold quite a few rods and they sell foam for spey rods. But expensive. Like the design better than the tubes too.

    Things to get me in over my head
    Totally the only reason I run mine:jerkoff:

    Not in love with my rod vault, however love having 3 different rods rigged. Most of the time I usually am carrying two rigs with different setups, wether it be steelhead, trout, or salt. In the winter around here you need a 6wt with a streamer, and a nymph rod rigged. I never know when I can fish, and when I can it isn't for long so being rigged gives me more time on the water. I am going to look into Riversmith for my next set up.

    I swung back over to give props to GFC for more great customer service. My 'rear tube' must have corroded because I couldn't slide the pins to open the tent. Graeme sent me a new one immediately - no questions asked. Damn. That's good.

    I do live in Vancouver and drove back and forth to the interior - so TONS of rain and snow. No questions asked - sent me a replacement.

    Re: the lighting system. I paid for one from the beginning as well. I got tired of waiting for GFC. So, I've got all the parts and just need a free weekend to start working on it.
