Awning Brackets / "Z" Brackets

from $ 250.00 USD

Please Carefully Read All Information Before Purchasing.

If you have an awning that is not made by Fiamma (even though it may look just like a Fiamma), some modifications, which are not covered in our installation instructions / video, are required. As these brackets are designed for Fiamma F45S awnings, we cannot provide any support or assistance in the installation process beyond what our standard instructions / video tutorial covers. We appreciate your understanding and acceptance of these limitations. Thank you.

These brackets, while easy to install, require very careful attention to some critical details which must be employed. Failure to do so may result in the awning coming off the brackets, or the brackets coming off the van. If this happens, both the awning and the vehicle can be damaged, and this is all on you / the installer!

There is a disclaimer to this product, which must be agreed to (during the checkout process) before this product can be purchased. Thank you for reading the disclaimer here.

Great news! We now have awning brackets (aka "Z" Brackets) for Chevy / GMC vans. Select your vehicle from the drop-down menu when purchasing.

These exclusive BlingMyRig brackets allow you to securely hang your awning. Ford vans have three brackets and do not require any holes.  Chevy / GMC vehicles have two brackets and require a hole to be drilled for each bracket.  A Cross Nut setting tool is required for installation of the Chevy/GMC brackets.

Works perfectly with your awning (up to 10ft length) so you can be protected from the sun, rain and snow. As always, never use your awning in windy conditions.

For use on rigs with or without PopTops.

Price includes **free shipping** via USPS Priority Mail for US addresses only. For international shipments, please contact us with your shipping address as the shipping rates will be waaaay over-calculated 😱 on the website.

**Important note:** if you are combining this product with a Swivel Seat Base and / or Stay-Put Bug Screens, there is a system glitch that shows a shipping charge of only <$10.00. This is not correct, and appropriate shipping charges need to be paid before the seat base(s) ships. Before fulfilling your order, we will contact you with the extra amount. Thank you for your understanding!

Inventory Status as of June 24th, 2024:

FORD Brackets - These are currently on backorder with the next batch expected mid  July

CHEVY Brackets - Unfortunately, we are currently out of stock on this product for Chevy / GM.   We are evaluating a new supplier and should have units in late July 2024.

Ford and Chevy brackets always sell out pretty quickly, so if you're sitting on the fence about purchasing, you might want to purchase right away.

** MUST READ For ALL International Shipments **

You will be charged exorbitant brokerage fees unless you… (click for more info).

Please, please be sure to consult the UPS or USPS website to understand how you can minimize paying exorbitant broker fees (for which we have no control). Each country has different rules, so research accordingly.

Some customers are being charged a whopping 50%😱 of the purchase price in brokerage fees, which are automatically charged by UPS or USPS unless other action is taken by the recipient before the goods are sent by us.

Be advised your package(s) will not be delivered by the carrier until the fees are paid, in total, at the time of delivery. In case you're wondering, we cannot lower the value of the goods.

Before we ship, you will need to inform us of your brokerage firm so we can input that information on the shipping label. If no brokerage information is provided, UPS or USPS will act as the broker, and they charge significantly higher fees than other brokers or if you clear it yourself.

Some excellent information for how to self-clear UPS shipments to Canada can be found here.
