They are smaller at the top and wider at the bottom. Also, the rear bracket has the fastener piece (farthest away from the side of the RV) that is actually bowed to match the shape of the bote. If you are good at metal fabricating, you could probably easily make a set of brackets, but I bought mine from portabote. They are pricey, but you can usually find lots of people wanting to sell theirs on eBay or on the Yahoo Porta-bote forum. I think a lot of people buy them, but just can't make that first step of actually drilling holes in their nice, new RV...so they never get used. IF you are willing to take the plunge, just follow the instructions and photos I've posted above, and be sure to measure 3, 4 or 5 times! Good luck. If you have any more questions just ask here at the forum. I posted this info, because it was VERY difficult to find good information about actually doing this mount. Good Luck!! -Dewey
