Review from a similar HideAway in Car Awning


Thule is top line and this awning is no exception. Did not have much chance to use it in the last year due to family issues, but plan a big year camping this summer. When installing be sure to mount into structural support of your trailer or RV. I used a stud locator that also finds steel studs and rechecked everything before drilling. These awnings are a heavy and wanted to make it was secure and exactly parallel to the trailer. Worth the extra money for a top line awning and the extra time to install to make sure all was done perfect. etrailer the place to buy!

Review from a similar HideAway in Car Awning


I will just email this review to you here. So far the Thule roof mount awning appears to be a 5-Star product. Just now have it installed. This awning is very nice. It mounts tight to the roof with a foam rubber gasket to eliminate any potential rattles while driving or rain leaking in under the awning when in use. It has a low profile to minimize wind resistance while driving. The adapter kit which secures the Awning to the roof of the ProMaster Van is excellent quality and attaches quickly and securely. However, placing the awning into the adapter brackets is not as simple as the directions indicate. Once you figure out the proper procedure required(which is a bit different than the directions) it all went together nicely. Here are a couple of pictures. from this morning's installation. Not a very nice day here so the pics are marginal. Hopefully you received the return awning ok. Thanks for you good service,

Thule hideaway awning is a nice piece of equipment. It always works great and looks great. The installation kit is well constructed and was easy to install on my Forest River R-Pod RP178. After a year I am still very happy with the purchase. E-trailer's website was great to work with. Thanks

Ask the Experts about this Thule Car Awning

  • Thule Awning FIt for Forest River Travel Trailer
    Yes. I believe it is the Thule HideAway Awning like # TH490008 being used. However you will want the direct mount version which is part number # TH490018 to add it aftermarket to a trailer. This will include the correct mounting brackets you will need.

  • Is There An Awning for Thule Square Bar Crossbars
    The Thule HideAway Awning part # TH490008 is what I recommend for the Thule Square Bar Crossbars. The only other options would require upgrading the roof rack as they require an integrated channel inside the crossbar. The Rhino-Rack Sunseeker Awning part # RR32133 could be used if you also purchased the Rhino-Rack Universal Pioneer Platform Rack part # RR42114BF but these are your options.

  • Awning with Rain Covers to Fit Side of 2000 Ford F-250
    Since your 2000 Ford F-250 does not have a roof rack your best solution for an awning would be one that attaches directly to the side of the van with the Thule Hideaway part # TH490008. This measures 8-1/2' x 6-1/2' and would be a great size for your van. For rain blockers you'd need the part # TH306454 for the front panel (you'd need two of these), and then for the sides you'd need the # TH306515.

  • Which Thule Hideaway Awning Fits Wall of Ford Transit
    The correct Thule Hideaway Awning for a wall mount application would be the part # TH490011 as the part # TH490008 was designed to attach to the crossbars of a roof rack. Both of these come with all needed brackets for their applications.

  • Version of Thule Hideaway that Can Attach to 2012 Ford E-250
    We don't have a rain gutter mount version of the Thule Hideaway so your best option would be the part # TH490018 which will attach directly to the side of the van with the included brackets.

  • Dimensions and Color of the Thule HideAway Awning
    The Thule HideAway Awning that you mentioned, part # TH490008, is designed to work with crossbars. It sounds like you only have the rails on your 2020 Ford Transit Connect. As such, you will need the Wall Mount, part # TH490018. These come with the brackets for installation. If you do have crossbars, then the width for both of these is 6-1/2' wide, and that is the entire mounting rail. We have these in the gray color. I'm not sure what you mean by height of the case, but if you have...

  • Will the Thule HideAway Work With a Prime Design Roof Rack On a 2018 Ford Transit T150
    I do have an option for you but I don't really see a way for you to use the Thule HideAway Awning part # TH490008 with the Prime Design Roof Rack AR-2100-AR2108 on your 2018 Ford Transit T150 due to the side rails being in the way. If you were to somehow remove the side rails then the Roof Rack Adapters for Thule HideAway Awnings part # TH490001 would most likely be able to mount to the crossbars but not with the side rails in place. If you can't remove the side rails on the Prime Design...

  • Recommended Awning for 2005 Dodge Sprinter
    For your 2005 Dodge Sprinter, you can use the Thule HideAway Awning - Direct Mount - Waterproof - 55 sq ft # TH490018 or the 80 sp ft # TH490011. There is not a fit for the rain gutter mount you were referring to. Another option is for roof rack mounting. You can use # TH490010 or # TH490008 with any roof rack crossbars. We do have rain gutter towers for those bars in the Inno roof rack consisting of # INB165 and # INSD.

  • What is Difference Between Thule Hideaway Awnings Roof Rack Mount and Wall Mount
    The Thule Hideaway that mounts to roof racks part # TH490008 is designed to attach to a set of crossbars and comes with hardware to do so whereas the Thule Hideaway wall mount # TH490011 comes with hardware to attach to the side of a wall. So the mounting hardware is the key difference.

  • Awning Needed to Fit OEM Roof Rack on Subaru Baja
    All of the Rhino-Rack Awnings, like the Batwing Awning # RR33100 you referenced, require that the roof rack has T-Slots to install. I'm not sure what crossbars came on a Subaru Baja but I'm pretty sure that they didn't have the newer style T-Slot so if you are wanting to utilize your current roof rack you need to go with the Thule HideAway Awning # TH490008 with the Adapter Kit # TH490001 as it is the only option that clamps around the roof rack crossbars. Just note that the crossbar spread...

  • Thule HideAway Awning Options for a 2020 Ford Transit Connect
    Yes, the Thule HideAway Awning part # TH490018 will work on a 2020 Ford Transit Connect but there isn't a vehicle specific adapter available for the Transit Connect so you will need to drill into the vehicle for installation. The only bolt-on option would be the Thule HideAway Awning part # TH490008 which requires a roof rack like the Thule WingBar Evo Crossbar System part # TH711420, part # TH460R, and part # THKIT3032 but as you said this would raise the height of the vehicle 5-6".

  • What Thule Awning do I need for my 2016 Ford Transit t-350 with the Rhino Rack Pioneer Platform
    We do have a solution for you but the Thule HideAway Awning part # TH620002 will not fit. Instead the Thule HideAway Awning part # TH490008 and the Roof Rack Adapters for Thule HideAway Awnings part # TH490001 used together will give you everything you need to make your connections and get a nice awning on your 2016 Ford Transit T350's roof rack system.

  • Can Thule Hideaway Tent Fit Hideaway Awning Installed on 2016 Ford Transit T150
    The Thule Hideaway Tent part # TH309920 will work great with the Hideaway part # TH490008 you are planning on installing on your 2016 Ford Transit T150. Your height of 8.5 feet would not be an issue at all either as that height would easily work with this tent and fits within it's range. The max height is 9 feet 4 inches.

  • Mounting Thule HideAway Awning To Thule AeroBlade Crossbars.
    You will need to get this roof rack adapter # TH490001 for your Thule HideAway Awning # TH490010 or # TH490008. These adapters will allow you to clamp them around your Thule Aeroblade Edge Crossbars or mount via T-Track. Make sure that your crossbar spread is at least 36 inches apart. This system will lock your awning to your roof so you don't have to worry about it running off when you're not around.

  • Can I Use Thule HideAway Mounting Brackets With Other Awnings?
    The Roof Rack Adapters for Thule HideAway Awnings # TH490001 are not designed to be used with other awnings other than Thule HideAway Awning # TH490010 or # TH490008. This is because the mounting brackets are designed to fit into sliding channels built into the awning itself. These channels are spaced 2-3/8" apart on center and use Thule T-bolts # 853-5715 which have an M8 stud. Thule refers to their mounting channel system as "exclusively designed" so it is unlikely that other awning...

  • Roof Mounted Awning for a 2015 Subaru Forester with Subaru Roof Rack Crossbars
    I have awning recommendations for you but the Batwing Awning # RR33200 is not a fit for the Subaru E361SSG000 crossbars. There isn't an adapter for it either. But as long as you can get your crossbars spaced 36 inches apart on center you can use the 8-1/2 foot Thule awning # TH490008 or the 10 foot model # TH490010. You would just need 1 set of adapters # TH490001.

  • Does the Thule HideAway Awning Come with Everything to Install on a 2006 Jeep Commander Roof Rack

The adapters have a max crossbar width of 3-1/2" and the crossbar must be within 11/16" - 1-3/8" tall or you can you use the included T-Bolts if your crossbars have T-Slots.
