Good question - I will need to get back to you on the US 200 spec vs SA spec - However the actual height of the awning is a function of the type of rack you have, the type on installation bracket you are using and the eventual height relative to the vehicle. Our mounting kits have variable heights built into their design so there is a 3.5" difference between the "high" and "low" mounts on our standard kits.Ahhh!!! Just saw this and got super excited then saw this group buy has already passed! I am interested in the double drawer system and have a buddy potentially interested in the 270 degree awning and the Penthouse XL Tent. I know most 270 degree awnings interfere with the US style rear hatch but this one looks like it actually has a fair bit of clearance. Any first hand experience with that awning on the US spec 200's?
Shot you a PM
The awning does not care about being pushed from below if it is around the middle of the door where the contact is made. Simply place a 3" long, 1/2" thick gray foam tape on the arm at the spot where it will make contact and the awning will be fine. The only real issue/concern is when the impact point is close to the vehicle (like the rear spoiler) contacting very early on the arm closer to the hinge, that will likely damage the rear spoiler due to the amount of pressure seen by it.
Re: 200VX drawer and XL Tent: we have both in stock in Houston - The tents are no longer on pre-order status (we had them on deep pre-order specials for about 9 months) but we can offer you a pre-order discount on the drawers if you want to wait for our next shipment (Arriving in late May/early June) if you want to avoid the MSRP pricing.
