You are correct the AWOL has only been in production since 2014. So in 2 years (I have a 2015) of sales the number of owners is likely to be very small. I have received evidence that a Tubus Tara will fit on my AWOL and this rack has the same weight carrying capability of the Duo. The Tara is also lighter and has an 18 year track record of production. I think I am going to end my pain and suffering and order a Tubus Tara for my AWOL. BTW I will definitely make a final post to all the good folks who have replied and let them know how my build turned out. The real proof will come from the road on test tours before I set off riding Transamerica.
