This is what I'm suspecting. I see that domestic company "A" , "B" and "C" all seem to be selling the same thing. I'm sure they focus their efforts on the core hardware business and outsource some of the other stuff.Who has this actually happened to? So far every knock off that is actually really close to the official product I've seen has been something that was already being made in China for the "manufacturer", then the Chinese just take seconds or run them using cheaper parts and/or no branding and sell them.
The Chinese do this on just about everything that is made there, from electronics to clothing to hardware to you name it. The snorkel for my H3 I get from China is virtually exactly the same as the Safari/ARB one because it is actually made there, not Australia. Only real difference is they made a mold without the branding engraved into it. Technically it's a knock off, but it is functionally and materially the same exact product, just no branding.
Probably the same with the awnings, they are probably put together using the same exact parts as the ARB's, but probably from clear back when they first came out and before updates and fixes were made to their construction.
