Something I have been playing with for a bit. Different sizes. Different spacing. Mounts up pretty solid.
How exactly are you mounting your awning?Been playing with the same idea for a while too. I left the center open for recessed solar panels. The tracks make it easy to mount or remove my awnings quickly. It’s pretty much as low of a profile you can get.

By utilizing 80/20 t nuts in the channels and the original awning brackets that came with my arb and foxwing. The t nuts stay in the channel year round, always there when I need them. Since the brackets stay on the awning and the nuts stay in the channel, it takes about 60 seconds to remove or install the awning.How exactly are you mounting your awning?
Depending on your options (number of slots/profile, mounting type, anodized specs, etc) each bar can run about $85-$165. Look closely at my pics and you can see 3 different examples of the 8020 profiles used. I’m probably most happy with the 6 slot (2 on top and bottom and 1 on each side). Those were ~$115 each with shipping, not anodized on the ends, I just shot a little black automotive spray paint on the cut to “seal” them.What was your total cost? Does it look like enough room to bolt a tent to it? I've made some crossbars for my LX that are same profile but haven't tried mounting anything yet.
4336Thanks for this!
For people asking for details or part numbers I think these are correct on 80/20.net (just going off pics, might be wrong though):
Corner brackets: 4336-black
Fasteners for brackets to crossbars: 3320
