We are heading out camping next week and the awning on our old Bigfoot trailer has broken. It's a Norseman, probably original from 1981 and not easy to find parts for. Anyways, I was wondering if anybody here has thoughts on the ARB or Smittybilt awnings that mount to the roof rack. A friend had one on his 4Runner and loved it for camping. He even kept it when he traded in the 4Runner, although I'm not convinced that he's gonna mount it on his Acura... he still won't sell it to me.
Any thoughts on awnings... Brand, models, installation...? I'd like one that can have walls added to make it a room in the future.
On a funny note, I've been looking at hundreds of Pathfinders on Instagram lately, and found myself totally shocked when I came outside today and realized that my roof rails do not have the "Pathfinder" written on them... If you'd asked me yesterday I'd of bet the farm that they did... I thought they all did! lol.
