    So, I believe there are awnings out there that I don’t have to get Gobi brand brackets and wait forever. I’m hoping to hear from folks, what awning you landed on and what brackets you used and are you happy with your choice.

    GZila Designs has a mount, its a universal mount so basically you'll measure the Gobi bars and order the correct diameter.

    I've never used them but I considered them. Ultimately I went with the Gobi mounts and I have been happy with them.

    ARB awning with the Gobi brackets. Super easy to take on and off.

    Yep.. just chillin. Thousands of off road miles and never a issue… does look like I might need to replace the rubber spacer though.

    Yeah I have rubber spacers on a pelican case on top and they're already toast. Rubber sure doesn't last up there.

    I have those Ironman Awning QD mounts and I can't recommend them enough, total game changer.
