Best Awning to Install on Yakima OffGrid Roof Basket  


Hi guys, can you suggest the best awning for yakima off grid? im looking at yakima slim shady rhino rack sunseeker or something comparable. thanks!


Helpful Expert Reply:

If you're planning on installing the awning to the Yakima OffGrid # Y07138 then the SlimShady like part # Y96VR is what you want to go with as it uses clamps to secure to the crossbars on your vehicle. The Rhino-Rack Sunseeker gives you more options to add extensions to the awning but it installs via T-Slots on your roof rack so it can't be installed on the OffGrid directly.

As far as operation and ease of use goes these awnings are about the same so it really boils down to if you want to install it directly to the OffGrid and if you want the option for adding more awning pieces down the road.

I'm attaching review videos for both the SlimShady # Y96VR and Sunseeker # RR32133 for you to check out.
