Nice, I am looking at the EcoHitch because it appears to sit a little bit closer to the bottom of the bumper than the Draw-Tite, although I have yet to verify that is actually the case...

Fourtreks awning mounts came in yesterday, so got the ARB 2000 mounted and tested out. The munchkin approves.

I'm so glad you got rid of the donut on the roof basket.

Do you stuff things in the spare tire well now?

Me too...not like it was going to be of much use with these tires/wheels anyway, lol. And yeah, that area has been chock full since I removed the donut from that location. I keep a couple blankets, hat(s), gloves (both for warmth and work), water, tools, 12v air compressor, tie downs, etc under there, plus a bunch of shooting range related accessories (staple gun, staples, target pasters, measuring tape, etc).

Thanks! They are definitely some beefy mounts, that's for sure.

I have a similar set up on my 2018 gray OB. The ARB awning with Four Treks mount makes an easy set up. Curious as to why the drivers versus passenger side mounting? Mine is on the passenger side because it provides more shade at the beach.

As my spare is on the passenger side of the rack, I definitely don't want to be having to lift the spare (full size) over the awning to get it off the rack.
