Pat,. I'd take whatever I can get. I would also like the size (thickness and width) of the aluminum bracket pieces if possible.

Thanks!

Hey Frank- just happened upon this thread. My buddy purchased a used PL and ordered the same factory awning my new PL came with. He fabricated the support bracket system and installed the awning himself.
It looks identical to mine now. I know he's used it several times and it's worked out great. Good luck!

Hey Tab! Any chance you could ask him what sort of material he used? I.e., 1" aluminum 1/4" thick for the bottom, 1" X 1/8" thick for the top? Did he make/use a spacer for the middle as well? If so, did he attach it?

Thanks for any help. I want to put together a plan and do this!

Frank

You're welcome, Frank. Overall length is about 9'4", so the awning is probably the 8'8" one. Black underneath the brackets is a rubber gasket material, white on top is probably caulk. -- Anne

Thanks Anne, Pat & Tab, you folks are the best!

I'm going to order one of these babies and give it a go. I also wonder if a middle bracket could be added? I'll figure it out when I have a canopy in my hands.

Hi Frank, I had Chandler install the Fiamma about a month ago. I will be glad to send additional pictures if you need them. Great awning! I ask about a brace in the middle and was told it was not necessary and in fact caused binding problems. No need for center brace. You will have to shape the brackets to the shape of the Parkliner but after that you should be good to go - Kevin

I assume it's aluminum flat stock used for the Parkliner custom brackets Kevin, and I don't see that being a problem for me to make and/or form. In fact, I love making things out of metal! Tell me, is the lower piece 14" thick and the uppers 1/8"? That is the impression I get from looking at the great pics already supplied.

First I need to get some info from Fiamma. So far (after sending 2 emails), they've told me Parkliner buys the F45S 3.0, but they have yet to tell me if the awning comes with any factory brackets at all. Guess I'm just gonna have to buy one and find out!

Thanks for the help!

Frank

They are out of business. A new business is in their spaces.

Who is out of business? Parkliner? Nothing on the web about them being out of business. You live close by? Any other info?

Thanks,

Frank

Polly, when I had Chandler install my awning it was mid May. He said he still planned to stay in business but run the operation from his shop at his home - Kevin
