Optional Add-A-Room Mounting Channel

Detailed Description

An alternative mounting method to the stock mount included with the Add-A-Room and most VW side tents (which use a pole that clamps into your rain gutter). This attaches the same way that original 1960's-1970's Westfalia tents attached. One side of the mounting channel slips over the lip of your rain gutter, the other over the beading on the edge of the Add-A-Room roof, holding them together. Can be cut to allow a gap if a roof rack or other accessory is mounted to your rain gutter, or to allow easier attachment. Stores with your Add-A-Room when not in use. 750 mm (29.5 inch) length.
