  • How To Install Replacement Clamp Assembly for Yakima SlimShady Awning
    In regards to the Replacement Clamp Assembly for Yakima SlimShady Roll-Out Awning part # 8880737, the handle on the side of the unit is used to tighten the c-shaped clamps around the crossbar. The rubber inserts inside the c-shaped clamps are then used to prevent the crossbar from moving around. In regards to how it attachs to the awning you will need the Replacement Mounting Bracket for Yakima SlimShady Roll-Out Awning part # 8880736. I have attached a few photos that will hopefully clarify...

  • Replacement Clamp Assembly for Yakima Slim Shady Awning
    I have a solution for you, but those parts are not available from Yakima at this time. Instead, you'll need to replace the entire assembly on your Yakima Slim Shady Awning # Y36VR. You can use the Replacement Clamp Assembly for Yakima SlimShady Roll-Out Awning # 8880737.

  • Are Sidewalls Available for the Yakima SlimShady Awning
    I do have a solution for you but unfortunately the Yakima SlimShady Awning # Y36VR does not have any side panels that you can add. We do have the Rhino-Rack Sunseeker Awning # RR32132 though which is a little bit larger and is comparable to the SlimShady. Rhino-Rack offers the side panel # RR32112 which you can add one to either side and the front panel # RR32111. You can use these to extend the footprint of the awning or as a windbreaker/privacy section. I have attached a review video...

    While there isn't a mosquito net for the Yakima SlimShady part # Y36VR that you referenced the very similar Thule Tepui Tent part # TH8002AW604 does have one available with the part # TH8002X1001. The Tepui is a similar size roof rack mounted tent that would work great.

  • Will the Yakima SlimShady Awning Clamps Work On a Adarac Truck Bed Ladder Rack

  • How Much Bar Space is Needed for Yakima SlimShady Awning
    I don't know the length of your bars but the answer is definitely yes. Bike carriers generally don't take up a lot of bar space and the Yakima SlimShady awning, part # Y36VR, only takes up about 4-1/2 inches when it's folded in. Also, if you'd like the SlimShady can be mounted on the bars outside of the feet as long as the bars stick out is at least 3 inches past the feet.

    The red arrow you are referring to in the accompanying photo is a part of the mounting hardware that comes with the now-discontinued RR32105, which is the entire awning and not just one part. You would not be able to attach a Batwing Awning # RR33200 or # RR33100 to your Yakima round bars; the best option for you is the Yakima SlimShady Roll-Out Awning # Y36VR which will work with round crossbars so long as they have a spread that is a minimum of 24".

    The Rhino-Rack Sunseeker Awnings like part # RR32132 and part # RR32133 are a bolt on design that will attach to crossbars or roof racks that have the t slots in them using the provided brackets. While it may be possible to drill holes in your bars to attach it to the round bar wont really give the brackets much support.

    The Yakima SlimShady Awning - Roof Rack Mount - Clamp On # Y36VR does require a pair of crossbars with at least 24" of spread in order to mount.

  • Awning Recommendation for a Yakima Core Bar Roof Rack on a Truck Bed Camper Shell
    There isn't a mount kit or way to attach the Sunseeker II awning RR32105 to Yakima Core Bars. The telescoping poles have a max height of 77 inches.

  • Do I Need a Cargo Basket to Mount the Yakima SlimShady on a Runaway Navigator Camper?

  • What Prevents Replacement Clamp and Bracket on Yakima SlimShady Awning from Sliding Along Rail
    To install the replacement clamp assembly # 8880737 and bracket # 8880736 on the Yakima SlimShady Awning # Y36VR, there are two t-bolts that are inserted into the upper channel of each side of the SlimShady rail. You would then place the clamp onto the bolts and thread a lock washer and nut on each bolt. At first you only need to tighten by hand and once installed, open the clamp completely. This allows you to slide the clamps along the awning to properly position them for installation....

    The Yakima JetStream Crossbars # Y00427 do have the channel but the weather strip on the inside will make the install difficult.
