Hi, I’m sure this van be done, either mounting on the brackets with a awning rail, of just over the awning bag with some velcro staps atached to the flap of the drive away awning.

Hi guys,

Planning a big 8 week road trip with my daughter to the Northcape next year and she would fit in a Continental top bunk.
Is there someone that makes these hardware kits these days?
Seen the one from NLAVW but these look different from the original.

Cheers, Harry

And a few pics from the Bus to Buzz tour organised by pon last year june.

I wouldn't but anything from NLAVW, poor reproduction parts that when they go wrong or don't fit they are not interested.

Sorted with the bracket 8)
Another question, i have a Firetec system but the presure in the bottle is on the low side but there is a valve like a tire valve and the manual says you can pump it up if the presure is low, i tried but the foam escapes before presure gets in?!
Anybody on here have the same system and represurised it?
Did you sort the Firetec?
Mine had lost pressure so I pumped it up a bit but as you said, it lost some foam. I removed it last year as I thought it needed servicing properly, but I haven't done anything with it yet.
Id guess that any fire extinguisher place could sort it, if so inclined?

No not yet, i red somewhere that VWJIM offered a refill service?!
Firetec is not existing anymore and the one that took it over tried to sell me a new system!
I think with some connectors, valves etc. you can fill it whitout spilling foam, still have to figure that out.

Made a few wall art items from my original Licenseplate, tags, logo and old hubcab.
Hubcab clock is in the style of a earlybay clock.
Testing the water for the clock to make a few more!
