Thanks for the great info in this thread. Has anyone heard anymore about a solution to the moisture getting in the bag issue? Also - has anyone used the Batwing on a windy, sandy, beach? I like going oversand with my kids and this would be a great way to extend our day if it works well in sand. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
One more thought- Anyone got any leads on where to pick up one of these used- in case the moisture was deal breaker for someone and they decided to move on to something else? - looking for a deal. lol
My initial report from another thread:
My Batwing, also from ETrailer, arrived with the box beat up. The cover had a small tear at that end and the washer/nylon nut for the hinge bolt was not connected and floating around the box. Assuming the shipping companies will not improve I agree that a beefier box is called for. As for ETrailer, I received excellent service from them.
On another note, the awning snapped two of the Delrin hinges on its first desert deployment. No fault of the awning, a sudden 40+ mph gust before adequate staking caught everybody off guard. After getting help unwinding it off the top of my truck shell I packed it back in the bag. Rhino Rack includes two replacement hinge pieces so this is obviously nothing new. I’ll report back on the fix...when I finally get to it.
