Ask the Experts about this Yakima Car Awning

  • Awning Compatible With 2019 Subaru Forester Factory Roof Rack
    The SlimShady Awning # Y56VR can clamp around your factory bars on your 2019 Subaru Forester. Extremely simple setup and isn't too big so you will still be able to lift your back hatch. It's 4-1/2" long by 6-1/2" inches wide giving you 30 square foot of coverage. The sunseeker awning # RR32132 you were looking at will only mount to roof racks with tracks on the bars which factory racks to not come with.

  • Will The Yakima SlimShady Awning Fit Toyota 4Runner Factory Roof Rack?
    The Yakima SlimShady Awning - Roof Rack Mount - Clamp On - 30 Sq Ft # Y56VR is made to clamp around crossbars and does not fit onto any cargo baskets. There are no awnings available that fit your cargo basket, but if you remove the basket then the Yakima SlimShady Awning should fit your factory crossbars. You will want to make sure you have a crossbar spread of at least 24"; crossbar spread is the distance from the center of one crossbar to the center of the next crossbar as seen in the...

  • Yakima SlimShady And OffGrid Basket Compatitiblity
    The Yakima SlimShady Awning, part # Y56VR, cannot safely be attached to the Yakima OffGrid Roof Cargo Basket, part # Y07138. However, both the SlimShady Awning and OffGrid Roof Cargo Basket would be able to be mounted to the factory bars of your vehicle.

  • Can The Yakima Slim Shady Awning Attach To More Than Just Crossbars
    Yakima SlimShady Awning # Y56VR only has hardware to mount to crossbars. The clamps only face one way and will only accept bars facing horizontally across the car.

  • Yakima Slimshady Awning Truck Bed Mount
    We do have ways to connect your awning to your truck but brackets aren't your best options. I would suggest getting the Yakima BedRock HD Truck Bed Crossbars # Y01160-58. Your SlimShady # Y56VR should have came with clamps # 8880737 which will clamp to the HD bars on your bed. This will give you the location you're wanting! The HD Bars can be used from truck to truck and doesn't take much time or effort at all to get it installed! Check out my installation video to see how it works.

  • Yakama "Slim Shady" Awning Compatibility with GoFastCampers Superlite Tent
    You cannot use the Slim Shady awning and the GFC tent as they both need to use the same space directly above the roof rails. An excellent solution is the Yakima # Y07437 SkyRise Tent that also acts as a large awning and includes ladder, rainfly, mattress, and locks. Sleeps three adults.

  • Can I Use Yakima SlimShady Awning With Yakima LocknLoad Platform?
    Yes! It will work on the Yakima LocknLoad Platform # Y05046 that's on the factory crossbars on your 2021 GMC Yukon. The Yakima SlimShady # Y96VR will attach to the side rails of your platform. Note that the awnings come in different sizes, so make sure to get the length that matches your platform and your needs. # Y56VR - 30 sq ft # Y36VR - 42 sq ft # Y96VR - 64 sq ft

  • Recommended Car Awning To Use With Malone AirFlow2 Aero Crossbars MPG216
    Luckily, the Malone AirFlow2 Aero Crossbars 58" Long # MPG216 on your 2018 Subaru Crosstrek have industry standard T-slot channels on top which will allow fitment of many awning kits. For Rhino-Rack awnings you could look into the Rhino-Rack Sunseeker Awning 49 Sq Ft # RR32132, Rhino-Rack Sunseeker Awning 55 Sq Ft # RR32133, or Rhino-Rack Dome 1300 Awning 64 Sq Ft # RR32125. You could also look into the Yakima SlimShady Awning which comes in various sizes: 30 Sq Ft # Y56VR, 42 Sq Ft...

  • Alternate Mounting of Rhino-Rack Dome 1300 Awning
    The Rhino-Rack Dome 1300 Awning, # RR32125 is designed as a bolt-on mount that uses top channels in certain models of roof racks for attaching the L-brackets. See attached image. As is, the designed mounting hardware supplied does not match this to the Rhino Rack XTray. But yes, a person can modify/custom fabricate an alternate mounting method if they choose to. I suggest you consider the Yakima SlimShady Awning, # Y96VR. If with your XTray in place, you have enough room on cross...
