My awnings (I have one on each side) are working just fine. The passenger side gets used in the rain (with no issues) and does a great job keeping the rain out when the sliding door is open. What I do is set the support poles (i use attachment points on the van) so that the front corner is higher than the rear, so that the water drains off the awning away from the door - haven't had a problem with pooling or wind (but I do get them down if it gets breezy OR if I'm going to be away from the van). Both awnings do a great job of keeping the sun off the van sides - keeping it cooler.Steve, How is the Fiamma awning working out especially in rain and moderate wind? Any wet-out or dripping issues? Their web site FAQ says don't use for rain, only shade and to roll up if raining. Odd. They seem to suggest they are worried about pooling and weight. That could be fixed by proper setup, right? They have simple brackets for PM roof now at $157. Rack or rails not needed. I'm seriously looking at one but would like to ask the guy who probably has the most road experience with this on a PM than anyone.
