  1. Let's hope that slotted aluminium extrusion is machined properly. Not like my $2,300 mkII awning. Causing the bracket mounting bolts not to be able to slot in for fitment. When notified of this manufacturing fault this company didn't bother to respond back. Fk the bush company, they only suck the dik of a youtuber and not worry about the rest of the people who actually spent their hard earned dollars. $2,300 for an awning and something as simple as the mounting system was faulty lmfao pathetic.
