Has anyone ever mounted a FoxWing 270 batwing awning to their pop-up truck camper? Going through their installation PDF, I see no mention of mounting it on the sidewall of a pop-up camper. However(!), I have a crude low-resolution photo (of no use to determine mounting specifics) of a pop-up truck camper WITH the FoxWing 270 mounted, but no contact info.

I would mount it to the passenger-side over the dinette window, to be swung back over the rear wall of our camper.

For reference, FoxWing: here-->

You might contact Bundutec and get their advice on their own product (https://bundutecusa.com/bunduawn/). After all, they make popup campers as well, so they might know.

After doing some hunting around on the Net last night, I found a solution.

Aluminum stand-off brackets mounted to the awning's aluminum back plate, and top beam of camper side-wall. Pretty sweet solution. The Youtube video shows a 4Wheel camper with the batwing installed, then deployed (deploy in less than 3 minutes).

Anyhow, if anyone wants to see this, here it is: batwing-->

Hallmark used to offer the Fox Wing as an option on their popup campers, I don't know it they still do. But I've seen several photos of Hallmark's with them on the web.

If you see me camped someplace stop and say hi, I've always got an extra ice cold beer.

I contacted Oztent and Hallmark asking about mounting the Fox Wing and got no replies. I moved on.

Thanks guys. Interesting.

The only Youtube batwing-on-popup demo I could find, was that linked Four-wheel camper thang.
