8' x 10'. Hideaway awning rolls out from the roof of your vehicle to give shelter from sun and rain. Mounts to Thule TracRac ladder rack or aftermarket roof rack (adapters sold separately). Hand crank lets you open and close awning.


I've been on the hunt for this awning for over a year as its been out of stock. There are other options out there for the Sprinter van but this one was the best choice for my rack. You do need to purchase the mounting brackets separately, which come with different options for attaching to crossbars amd roof rails. I had some roof rail pucks laying around that I used to attach the brackets too.
This is very versatile and can be set up with the legs on the ground or with the Thule optional brackets(Purchase
separately) that attach the legs to the van..this is great if setting up on a hard surface or if you need to keep your dog on a lead and not get tangled up.the only tricky part for me is that my van is tall so once I get the awning out about 2 ft, I have to hop in the van and get the legs out- no biggie.this is very nicely made and easy to set up take down. Lots of optinal accessories as well



Its been a yr and this has held up well. I contemplated removing this for the winter, not knowing if a few snow incidents or salty roads woulld cause issue..but I still camp in my van in winter and having the awning is always a great option. * I always make sure to try to clean off the top of the awning after its been deployed due to tree debris, Inects, etc getting wrapped up when closing.


After a ton of research I chose the Hideaway roof rack mount awning for my Ford Transit van conversion project. The awning was easy to mount, (did so in about 1 hour with help of my wife). I mounted my roof rack mounting brackets upside down onto my home-made roof rack and it fits beautifully.


I'm extremely disappointed in customer service at Etrailer. I called regarding an issue with the telescoping hand crank getting stuck in the hole when pulling out or retracting the awning. I was told by Shawnee in customer service to call the manufacture, Thule.

Sometimes the fastest way to receive help is to contact the manufacturer. I, myself, reached out to Thule about what was happening with your awning and was advised to have you reach out to them as they would need pictures to help figure out what is going on with the handle.


The install was a little tricky because I mounted the awning on a Roambuilt rack on my Sprinter and used NRS (River raft) u bolts around the RoamBuilt aluminum tubes. I needed to fabricate custom two part brackets for my set-up. The awning works great and looks good. It arrived with a bunch of aluminum metal shavings inside the plastic wrap on the awning inside the cardboard packaging, which had me worried that it was damaged or the awning would be ruined. I contacted etrailer about the shavings and they were just as surprised as I was, but offered to stand by as I tested and installed the awning. However, after a year of use, I’ve come across no problems.


Bought this knowing about the issue with mounting on Sprinter vans (prevents the crank arm from inserting vertically into the mounting slot), and used some rubber grommets on the end of the crank as a workaround, which has worked well. No complaints about the awning itself. It's been durable and opens/closes pretty easily.


As advertised nice product very happy with install on my van rack. Product was well protected in its cardboard layers of boxing. As usual etrailer web site is user friendly and customer service during and after the shipment is spot on therefore I give a 5 star thumbs up.


Worth the wait. Works perfectly in our van conversion. I mounted to roof rack’s t slots using a modified generic mount brackets.



Gotbabgreat deal on my awning. Took a while to get here but they stayed on top of it and its here..saved me some $$ too. Make sure you check if in stock
and what the expected lead time is if not in stock so you can plan accordingly. Happy with the overall product and service.




Still fantastic, ZERO issues.







Replaced the Carefree awning on our 2019 Travato with this product. Like the sleeker look of the Thule awning when closed. 4 stars was only because of a missing arm cover (refer to photos). The legs locking mechanism is kinda squirrelly so hoping there’s a fix to tighten those.


We bought a 2019 Forest River R Pod in Sept. 2022 with no awning because the previous said it was broken and he threw it away. I called to cancel an awning that was too short on Nov. 18, 2022 and ordered the 9' 10" awning and Alyssa told me we may not get it until next summer. I received an email over a week later that our awning was shipped, and we received it Dec. 9, 2022. It was very easy to install since the camper already had the Thule bracket on the camper. The weather also cooperated with installing it! These awnings are made in England and Alyssa told me the Thule is having difficulty getting orders done and shipped. I don't know what kind of strings e-trailer pulled but I was very happy we got it in a very timely manner. Very pleased with the quality and excellent service!


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,


After 1 year of use I have discovered that service parts are not available for this awning in the USA. I broke a support leg and have been told by Thule USA to buy a complete awning if I need spare parts. This is definitely not acceptable and unexpected. Buyer beware this awning is not fully supported by Thule USA.


Ordering from etrailer has always been effortless. Prices are on point and free shipping doesn't hurt either. The awning went on in an hour using the kit that I also purchased from etrailer. Will return to their site for the other items I will need for my build.


Doesn't easily mount to Promaster. I have Thule's specific Promaster mount kit. Still don't have it installed and Thule hasn't been much help. Very disappointed.


I was going to purchase an ARB awning until I saw the Thule. Perfect size for my 2020 Ford Transit Connect with crank out awning instead of the ARB's hand unroll and roll back up to store. Enclosed casing instead of a zippered bag as well as a quality build overall. The added cost for a quality product was well worth it.


So I ordered the Thule hideaway and received the Thule omnistor. Luckily it fit the same adapters and everything. I think the legs are maybe different between the two and some accessories might not fit but it’s really hard to tell. Wish they would have advertised the product that they shipped when spending $XXXX.


Best awning on the market! Bought it a year ago and went with it couple times. We took it for camping and drove couple thousand miles off the road, however it says its not for off-roading and it stood well, heard some rattling noise on the rugged terrain so I cranked and it there was no noise anymore. Also after setting the camp there was a strong wind and I was afraid it would break the awning as I did not use the pegs, awning arm was disconnected and there was no bend or break (thinking of getting sun shade and it will be more secure during the wind)! Don't know about the other brands but THULE is the way to go!


For our application the awning is performing well.
