Yep, thats the one I have. GWDL009. Only the door sheet is Alu, the rest is steel and so it's more or less as heavy as the full steel version. A bit misleading I'd say...and pointless. I suspected that the top of the strut needed to swivel 180 degrees but I am afraid to break it. Perhaps they just sent the wrong strut? I'm going to try and disassemble it this afternoon. The head doesn't appear to swivel 180 without disassembly. Front Runner... worse than IKEA.

those head do swivel 360 deg. I had the head on the wrong side when I first installed then had to look at the pictures to get it right. I couldn't say if my frame is steel or alu. since there's weatherstripping between it and the body, and it's powdercoated, I'm not concerned about differential corrosion. your lower strut mount is more flush than mine, so that's a good thing in my book. that's the only change I see.

Now that the red mist has settled and I have calmed down I'm actually very happy with them. The instructions left something to be desired and the whole aluminum thing is a bit of a misrepresentation but they are great otherwise. Will start sketching on the shelving system next. Thanks!
