Re: Anchor point parts for Amarok

Hi, the majority of tie down options seem to be either ratchet straps, turn-buckles or fastguns. It’s recommended to secure to the chassis either via eye-bolts through the tub floor or outside of the tub, using chassis extensions. It depends on the camper and truck on the best soloution.

Re: VW Amorak rear mounting eye bolt locations
