    I was thinking about getting a Foxwing awning. Searched this site and found 0. So here goes.
    I ordered one after talking a friend that's into expedition type stuff in his Taco. He said he'd seen them in person and that they are awesome. So $584 later mine arrived today. First impression only, I'll update after I spend some time camping and on the beach in a few weeks.

    The installation was fairly easy. I'd say I had it on in about 30 minutes, including unwrapping and reading the instructions. First attempt I had it too far back, so I corrected that and it seems well worth the money. I will cut my crossbars and may move it more inboard. The distance aft leaves a gap with the shell, but I can raise the window in the shell without stressing the awning, so it stays there for now.

    Deploying is a snap, even with the crossbars in the way. Stowing is also pretty easy, although there is one spot in the middle that is a little tight. Being a short fat guy it's a little high. I can do it from the ground, but it much easier with a step ladder, which I take with me anyway to access my cargo box, so no big deal.DSC_2533.jpg DSC_2534.jpg DSC_2535.jpg DSC_2536.jpg DSC_2537.jpg DSC_2538.jpg DSC_2539.jpg DSC_2540.jpg DSC_2541.jpg DSC_2542.jpg DSC_2543.jpg DSC_2544.jpg

    It would. I don't do that but my alma mata (ODU) seems to be enticing me, so could be... I think for those breezy fall afternoons you would need sand bags to secure the poles.

    Will do. But only old farts have a cap :thumbsup:. Going to OBX in a couple of weeks for the Perseid meteor shower, so will get some then.

    Pretty nifty. It would also come in handy for single day trips, for target shooting. I can think of a lot of things. Cool. I wouldn't be surprised if a lot are being used for some serious tailgating. sand bags a good idea. Good excuse to go to the beach.

    I've had caps on all my trucks going back to 1975 when I was "20". They take about 5/10 minutes to take off/put on.

    On the beach at OBX. I can say that this thing is awesome. Plenty of shade, easy to set up. Still conditions by myself in less than ten minutes. Had to move the truck due to my wife's insistence that the view of the water wasn't very good. Stowed enough to move and facing about a 12 kt breeze, still 15 minutes including stowing, moving and re-deploying. With the breeze it takes two people, watch the foxwing video and they will tell you the same, with instructions. And it's great for tailgating. Mama said it's worth the price even if we never use it again. I don't agree, but if my wife says spending money is a good thing, then I'm going to agree.

    No, it touches the canvas if I have the poles lowered, but not enough to damage anything.
