One of the top wind out awning manufacturers, Fiamma consistently develop some of the best campervan awnings on the market. Read more as we try out the Fiamma F40 awning, testing the features, ease of use & give our verdict on the Italian design.
Fiamma F40 awning
The Fiamma F40 awning mounts to the roof or your vehicle and is for campervans like the VW T5 or T6. It has a lowered fitting to fit the profile of the camper and has a deep black aluminium casing and Royal Grey fabric.
Review- What does it deliver?
Packing a punch in the aesthetics, the smart black design matches up well with most colours of campervan. The compact dimensions, along with the lowered fitting and reduced projection, mean the awning fits the proportion of the VW T5 or T6 campervan perfectly.
Compared to other awnings, it's easy to fit and it doesn't require any drilling to your vehicle. So, you can be quick to remove this as well if you use it as your day-day vehicle.
As per most Fiamma awnings, you’ll get the reinforced arms, flat legs and an awning lead bar to maximise strength and stability which should guarantee quality and an optimum price performance ratio.
What to look out for?
Designed for campervans, The F40 will only fit a standard roof. It will not work with pop top or high roof vehicle. If your camper is equipped with a c-rail or multirail, this will need to be removed to use this.
Don’t forget to purchase the correct adapter kit with this. The UK VW adapter kit (Fiamma Product Number: 98655Z038) will fit this to the passenger side of a right-hand drive UK VW campervan.
The Camperco Verdict
The Fiamma F40 campervan awning is the perfect size awning for VW T5 or T6 campervan or similar size models. The slim profile & lightweight design makes it aerodynamic and relatively easy to install or remove and the reduced projection means you won’t encroach on anyone else’s space on your trip.
