  • Attaching A Yakima Slim Shady To Rooftop Cargo Basket
    The Arksen Roof Cargo Basket does not have any usable crossbars, which you need to attach the Yakima SlimShady Awning - Roof Rack Mount - Clamp On - 64 Sq Ft, part # Y96VR. You could attach it to the Yakima LoadWarrior Roof Rack Cargo Basket - Steel - 44" Long x 39" Wide, part # Y07070. The SlimShady would attach to the crossmembers of the LoadWarrior Cargo Basket. I have included product description links and video review links below.

  • Mounting Awning To A Rhino Rack Roof Rack On My 2015 Ram ProMaster 2500
    For the roof rack, you'll need to get these bars # RRVA180B-2, with the RLTP Legs # RRRLTPFD and these adapters # RRVA-FK1-2. I've included a video for you to watch to see how it installs! If you want to use the roof rack for your awning you will need to go with a wrap around awning like the Yakima SlimShady # Y96VR. This will just clamp around the bars with little effort. All you need is your hands to clamp it down to the crossbars. If you really want to get the Thule Hideaway #...

  • Can I Put the Yakima SlimShady Awning on Factory Crossbars on a 2008 Dodge Caravan

  • Awning Solution for Attaching to Rhino Rack Pioneer Platform on Roof
    Rhino Rack actually has a similar awning that will attach to your Pioneer Platform tray that has channels on the top of it with the Rhino Rack Dome 1300 Awning # RR32125 but the SlimShady requires a crossbar to attach to as it is a clamp on design so it would not work for you.

  • Can A Screen Enclosure Be Added To The Yakima SlimShady Awning On Roof Rack?
    I have a possible solution for you, however, there is not a screen available for the Yakima SlimShady Awning - Roof Rack Mount # Y96VR. Instead, you would want to go with Rhino-Rack Batwing Compact Awning - Roof Rack Mount - Bolt On - Driver's Side - 69 Sq Ft # RR33300. This is already a really nice and popular awning, but you can also add # RR32111 to the front of the awning to act as a wind breaker.

  • Yakima SlimShady And Yakima OffGrid Roof Cargo Basket Compatibility
    The Yakima SlimShady Awning - Roof Rack Mount - Clamp On - 64 Sq Ft # Y96VR just requires a minimum crossbar distance of 27" so you should easily be able to slide out the crossbars of your Yakima OffGrid Roof Cargo Basket - Steel - 44" Long x 40" Wide - 165lbs # Y07138 to attach the SlimShady awning to it.

  • Yakima Slim Shady Awning Compatibility With A 2022 Bushwhacker FB10 Tear Trailer Roof Rack
    The Yakima SlimShady Awning # Y96VR only has brackets for clamping onto a crossbar. The minimum size crossbar thickness needed would be 1" for these clamps. You could most likely clamp these onto the crossbars you have on there but the plate they attach to is going to stick up too far and block the awning. You could either cut the top off of the plate or get another bar running through that top hole for the awning to clamp onto.

    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.

  • Thule 10 awning for 2020 Subaru outback onyx XT
    Unfortunately there are not any aftermarket roof racks that fit the 2020 Subaru Onyx XT due to the roof rack system that is already installed from the factory. The Thule HideAway Awning - Roof Rack Mount - Waterproof - 80 sq ft # TH490010 cannot attach to the factory roof rack on your vehicle. For an awning that will attach to your Subaru Outback's factory roof rack you can go with the Yakima SlimShady Awning - Roof Rack Mount - Clamp On - 42 Sq Ft # Y36VR or the larger Yakima SlimShady...

  • Car Roof Rack Awning Recommendation
    I spoke with Rhino Rack and they stated the Rhino-Rack Batwing Awning - Roof Rack Mount - Bolt On - Passenger's Side - 118 Sqft Item # RR33200 would be fine in moderate wind with the guy ropes attached and the stakes in each leg. The hinges were designed to break first to save the rest of the awning from being damaged so that's why there's a wind warning. Typically awnings would need to be put up in 20+ mph winds so if you wanted to you could use this awning but if the wind starts picking...

  • 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...

    Since you have a roof rack with no T-Slots you won't be able to use the Tepui Overcast, but you can get a clamp on awning like the Yakima SlimShady # Y96VR! I've used these in the past and did the review on it as well! It works really well and simply clamps around any crossbar. Just make sure that your crossbar spread is at least 27 inches. Using the brackets you were looking at # 8880737 and # 8880736 wont work with anything other than the SlimShady. If you really wanted to get the Tepui...

  • Recommended Awning for Factory Crossbars on 2017 Toyota 4Runner
    I have a solution for you to add an awning, but the Rhino Rack Sunseeker awning # RR32132 requires a crossbar or platform with a top channel to mount the awning. An awning that will fit your factory crossbars on your 2017 Toyota 4Runner is the Yakima SlimShady Awning - Roof Rack Mount - Clamp On - 64 Sq Ft # Y96VR. This option provides just a bit more coverage at 64 sq/ft compared to the 49 sq/ft of the Sunseeker, and it easily installs by clamping to your crossbars.

  • Yakima RocketBox Replacement Mounting Hardware
    You definitely have a Yakima Rocket Box like this one # Y07191 because of the YRB letter in front of the numbers. I did not find anything online about the number you provided though. That being said, it's probably a discontinued box but the new boxes use this Quick-Dial Mounting System # Y8870097. If you're wanting an awning that will for sure work, grab the SlimShady # Y96VR. This will just clamp around the Yakima Core Bar that you have.

  • Will the Bolts on Front Runner Accessories Fit the T-Slots of the Yakima LockNLoad's Channels?
    I have an answer for you. I reached out to my contact at Yakima and they said that they specially make t-slot hardware for accessories that are designed to fit into LockNLoad Platforms like the # Y05044-39. With that being said, there is no way to confirm whether your Front Runner accessories' M8 hex bolts will work with the LockNLoad channels. This is also the case with all other t-slotted platforms we carry. However, Yakima does make many compatible accessories that are designed to...

  • Can Awning be Mounted to Yakima OverHaul Ladder Rack For Tonneau Cover w/ Rooftop Tent
    While there isn't an accessory that moves an awning away and not encroach on crossbar space, you may still be able to utilize a rooftop tent with the Yakima OverHaul HD Adjustable Truck Bed Ladder Rack for Tonneau Cover - 68" Crossbars # Y01151-5855 or 78" Crossbars # Y01151-5955. Since the crossbars on the OverHaul are longer than standard roof racks they give you a lot more room for other accessories so it really just depends on the width of your rooftop tent.
