F45S 400 Polar White 13’1″ – 8’2″ Extension
The thing I always have to ask myself before getting any awning is if this thing is cleanable. Is this one able to be cleaned or am I going to have be creative again in order to get this thing clean?
Fiamma has given us assurances that this awning is cleanable. You should not have to get creative in the way you clean this product.
I’m what you would call an extreme adventurer. I tend to give my stuff a good beating, unfortunately. So, you can imagine, I’m looking for an awning that is a little more durable than the ones I’ve been getting. Should I be considering this awning?
The awning has dual shock absorbers built into the product. The shock absorbers will take some or all of the possible damage that might come your Sprinter van’s way. There are limits to any system, therefore, you should not expect miracles.
I’m not a great mechanical person. I’ve broken more than my fair share of awnings. My main fear is that I will end up breaking it. Is that something I should be worried about?
If you are worried about rolling this item up the wrong way then you are in luck because you physically cannot do that to this awning. You should be able to use this awning without fear of breaking it due to the way you might roll up the product.
I’ve seen this listed as having a double-guide. I have no idea what that means. Can you help me understand what this means?
Double guide means that you can install two front panels on your awning. There are people who really want this for their awning and it is why it is mentioned on some sites.
I’ve heard that people get the wrong brackets sometimes when they get awnings. I want to make sure that I am getting the right ones. Could you tell me what brackets I get with this awning?
You get the standard brackets in the stock version of the awning. You can get different brackets if you need them, however, they are considered a different product altogether and they have their own cost associated with them.
How many different colors are there for the hard piece?
There are three different colors you can choose from if you decide to get this product.
What are those three colors?
You can choose from the following color choices: polar white, titanium, or deep black.
Does the manufacturer say what kind of installation this thing is best used on?
Fiamma says that they designed this item for a wall installation.
I know you’ve talked about the colors of the awning. How about the fabric color though? What colors are the awning fabric?
You can choose your fabric color from one of the following color choices: royal grey, royal blue, pearl grey, Sahara, evergreen, or Bordeaux. However, if you do have a color choice in mind that we do not list then contact [email protected] and we will assist you in getting that color if possible.
What does that “400” designation mean?
400 denotes the length of the awning. You can find awnings between the ranges of 260 and 450 cm according to the information we have from Fiamma.
I’ve been impressed by the look of led lights on awnings. Is that something I can do with this product or is that a no-no?
Fiamma actually makes a version of these awnings that have led lights. We do have to tell you that they are not stock models, however. They are very likely built to order.
I’m feeling pretty good about this product. I’d like to know if there are other upgrades for it, though? I want to know what I could be getting.
One of the most popular upgrades is to get the electric version of this product. It allows you to roll the product up without having to do it manually.
Is there a way to add a private room for myself? I know its a tall order but I like the thought of it.
You can get an optional product that does make the awning into a private room. However, it is a different product and it does not come with the stock version of this product.
My worry is that I will break the arms of this awning quickly when I am using it. Is that something I should be worried about or is it something I’m just too jumpy about, in reality?
Fiamma has made these arms as durable as possible. They use a double steel cable that helps the system keep the tension constant. You should notice a big difference in feel if you have used other awnings in the past.
