Thule Roof mounted awning

I see Thule now lists the roof mount Hideaway awning for the Promaster. I'm trying to determine the dimensions of the mount, shown as the solid black in the attached image. If anyone on here orders one of these for their Promaster, please please please take a few measurements of this piece, or better yet trace it out onto a piece of paper or cardboard along with a measured line for reference and PM it to me.

I'm trying to determine if I can adapt that mount to make it fit a vehicle that isn't a Promaster.

Or, I'm sure that drawing is to scale, including the PM roof line. Measure one of those same roof line segments on an actual PM and use it create a scale for the drawing. Should be plenty accurate for your needs.

Hi, what roof rack is it mounted to?
I have the Prime Design AluRack and I will adapt the awning to fit the rack or rack mounting blocks.
Thank you, Jeff

I mounted my rack-mount Thule hideaway to the weatherguard roof rails.
