Talisman Fiamma awning

Post by Schmike on Tue Aug 11, 2015 1:22 pm

I'm about to purchase an awning for the old bus. Anybody fitted one or has one fitted on a Talisman? I spoke with a dealer and they said that AS do a wedge to give a suitable surface to mount the awning as the roof sides are not flat like some. I've dropped a mail to AS to ask but wondered if anybody could confirm or give me any pointers? Looking at a 3M one so middle bracket not really needed (according to dealer).  confused3

I have a 3mtr Fiamma  fitted by the dealer when I bought the van, my van isn`t flat either a monocoque like yours,  I don`t have wedges in the ends, just the two brackets. seems fine.

I am wondering if they are needed. Wouldn't have a pic of the bracket on the side of yours I suppose?. Just so I can see where its mounted in relation to the curve of the roof.

EXCELLENT!! Thanks for the pictures Chris. Gives me a good idea where they go. I've had a reply email from AS and the do some similar to these. I'm going to have a look at the roof and decide. It's currently got a rail fitted for a slide in/caravanstore awning, and with the age of the old girl i'm a little worried what i'll find underneath as I'll need to remove it to fit the F45 if we get it. More concerned its been sikaflexed on as well as the screws so how much tidying up will it need first. I've removed the roof sections inside so no issues there but don't want to end up needing to repair the roof before I drill even more holes in it!!

Drilling holes in a monocoque GRP shell is always going to be nerve wracking.

I used to be "chief mechanic" in a boat syndicate, just think how that feels, at least a Talisman isn't going to sink with all hands if you make a mistake. hugegrins
