G'Day from Toowoomba Australia

G'Day, found this forum on the web whilst looking for tips and modifications to my Avan Aliner Cruiser which is more or less the same as you blokes have in the States but a bit more heavier built.
I've been interested in the wind kits which are rarely seen in Australia - why I don't know, as we probably have as strong winds at times.
From the looks of it this forum has a nice friendy feel about it. I hope I can contribute as much as I take.
Regards
Denis

Welcome, Denis !!

Hope you are surviving the extreme heat that has been pestering y'all.

Looks like Avan Aliner is very similar to our Forest River A Frames, in the Rockwood and Flagstaff lines.

Welcome to the forum!

Do you have some description for these wind kits...perhaps we know them under some other name.

Welcome to the Forum!

A photo or link to one would help us picture what you are talking about.

If I had to guess he's relating to a wind genny.
Lets see if I'm correct.

you do know that there's an Aliner Owner's Club on the Web, right?
Aliner Owners Club
assuming your Aliner is the same as U.S. Aliners.

Thanks for the welcome - I knew this was a friendly forum.
We have an Aliner club in Australia but I like to look over the fence and see what our neighbours are doing.
The wind kit I mention is the one that is designed to stop the Aliner coming apart in strong winds - never seen one in Australia but you lot seem to talk about them all the time, so I figured I'd see what you blokes do.
I tow with a Ford Territory which is an Australian based SUV design about the same size as your Explorer - has a straight 6 190Kw petrol engine.
I'll attach a Picasa link to show what my van looks like - excuse the pics of the grandkids.
Regards Denis

I think there was a member here that came up with a home made solution for that problem. A search may turn up the mod.

Here ya go: Aliner high wind kit installs fine on FR hardside

Looks like it was originally made for the Aliners, but may work on the Forest River brands, also.
