  • How to Mount Awning on Yakima LoadWarrior on 2022 Toyota 4Runner
  • An awning like the Yakima SlimShady # Y36VR can be mounted directly on your LoadWarrior. However, there are no brackets that will allow you to mount it on the side. Brackets like the # Y84AR you were looking at are designed to fit in T-slots so they will not work with the roof basket. Also, your factory crossbars do not have enough space to attach the awning next to the roof basket. The SlimShady is the best option since it can clamp onto the LoadWarrior like it would your crossbars....

  • Mounting Thule HideAway Awning On a 2022 Winnebago Solis 59PX With Pop Top Roof

The mounts were similar to the Thule HideAway Awning Adapter # TH308960 as they do get drilled into the van. Be sure to check with your Winnebago dealer as well as I do see that they offered it with an awning from Carefree of Colorado.

  • Can I Use the Rhino Rack Batwing on a Tear Drop Trailer with a Rear Hatch That Opens 12" Above Roof

  • What is the Leg Height of Thule Hideaway Awnings
  • I have a solution for you, but there is not an awning that's truly designed to extend parallel to the ground from your coach, so the legs on most awnings are going to be shorter than where the awning is mounted. This helps keep water from pooling on top of the awning fabric and stretching it out or potentially damaging the legs of the unit. With that said, the legs on the Thule HideAway Awning - Direct Mount # TH490011 extend 8 feet and would give you the tallest awning we have available....

  • Can Yakima SlimShady Fit on 2005 Honda Element with Roof Basket
  • When the Yakima SlimShady Awning part # Y36VR is folded up it only takes up about 4-1/2 inches of bar space that would leave you with right at 39-1/2 inches of available bar space for a basket. You could easily then fit the Yakima LoadWarrior part # Y07070 with the Yakima Spare Carrier # Y07076. This is 44 inches wide but a good portion of it can hang over the bars since the mounting brackets of the basket aren't on the very outsides of the basket.

  • What Roof Awning do You Recommend with My Prime Design Alurack on My Nissan NV200?
  • I have a solution for you. According to the available research I have on your Prime Design Alurack, there are vertical side rails that run from the front to the rear of your 2021 Nissan NV200. This particular design makes it incompatible with most traditional awnings that are designed to mount onto horizontal crossbars. With that being said, a creative solution is the Kelty Waypoint Car Awning - 11' Long x 13' 9" Wide # KE33TR (olive drab/dark gray) or the # KE53TR (dark teal/orange)....

  • The legs on the Rhino Rack Dome 1300 Awning - Roof Rack Mount # RR32125 can be adjusted between 5ft tall and 8-1/2 feet tall.

  • Difference Between Thule Hideaway Awnings TH490011 and TH490010
  • Broadly speaking the difference between the two Thule Hideaway kits is that the # TH490011 is a flat mount that attaches to the side of an RV like you need whereas the part # TH490010 is for attaching to a roof rack. There are several smaller details between the two that are different so that each application fits as best as it can so you are correct they are slightly different.

  • Could Rhino Rack Dome 1300 Awning be Used at Rear of Hiker Trailer Camper

I attached a picture that shows it attaches to a camper shell on the back of a Ford Ranger and you can see it is not any wider than the truck. I looked up the width of the Ford Rangers of that generation and they are 69-1/2 inches. So there would be a little bit of overhang on your 60 inch wide trailer but this would still work fine.
