We've owned the Fiamma F35, the ARB, the Mombasa and now the Hannibal. Out of the 4, its the easiest to deploy and is very stout when mounted to the correct rack configuration. Make sure you're side rails of your rack out stout. It will flex them if it's basic c-channel extruded aluminum. It handles wind well, basically cutting through it and not lifting whatsoever. When you attach the sides it makes a nice extra space for cot sleeping or getting out of the elements for extended periods. If i had one bad thing to say it would be that it needs a bow in the center so that the water or snow doesn't puddle up and create an extremely heavy over hang. Since it doesn't have legs you can't "rake" the awning. But this is fixed simply by paying attention to your setup and swiping at the canvas now and again to get the water/snow off the top of it.
Hannibal and Fiamma are my two top favorite still.
Chris, what is the weight of the rear awning?

The Fiamma and Eezi-Awn are great quality, and the Hannibal is a beast of its own. Totally different design and materials used and pricepoint.
Sorry to get off topic, back to the Hannibal awning......
Here's a comparison shot of our Hannibal next to our Fiamma 2 weeks ago. Both are 6 footers.
Interested in group buy
Damn! Just bought an ARB awning. I am curious if anyone has successfully mounted a Hannibal awning to a Bajarack with 5'' sides?

The rear rack is weights only 18 lbs
The mounting brackets are meant for rectangular tube 2" x 1"
But we offer a "Flat" bracket this allows you to mount the awning to different set ups, even a flat wall if you wanted. They are Aluminum so you can't just weld something up unless you are set up for it. The other option is you make a clamp that fits your rack and then mounts to this and just drill and tap the aluminum bracket.
The back side of the flat bracket measures 5.75" x 3"
