Yakima Slim Shady 8x8 Awning is an excellent addition to my Yakima MegaWarrior + Extension rack & solar power enabled off-grid rig!!!! Yakima/etrailer box was severely damaged in cross-country delivery but the awning was so well protected it suffered only scuffing on the cover. Installation on a rack this high requires 2 ladders & assistance but slow & steady was very successful. I can't wait to set up camp & sit in the shade enjoying cool refreshments from my solar powered refrigerator.

So happy with this awning. Easy on and easy off. Super secure and no rattle while driving. Provides great shade.




by:

Great awning and fast delivery.




by:

As advertised, high quality product, super-easy installation with very clear instructions, this awning is a great addition to the rig I'm building. The 8' can be a bit challenging to deploy with one person but doable and it's totally worth the extra shade space especially in the AZ sun. etrailer is awesome as usual, easy ordering, great communications throughout.

1 yr later, so far so good. A bit tough to setup on your own. Well constructed. If you can fit it, 8ft is the way to go for multiple people. I like how low I can make one end to create nice angled shelter against wind at night for my equipment.

Review from a similar SlimShady in Car Awning


I haven’t had a chance to use it yet but what I like is that the mounting brackets come with inserts that work on Yakima round bars, I have searched with no luck to find something
that fits my round bars and these are specifically made to fit round bars as well as all others.

Review from a similar SlimShady in Car Awning


I’m a Yakima user for many years, this seems to be on par with everything else they make. Which is top notch. It was easy to install and easy to use. Might need two sets of hands on a windy day. But so far I love it.

Review from a similar SlimShady in Car Awning


Many thanks to you and the crew. After I received the original order, which UPS and the USPS managed to mangle, you had Rhino Rack send the part directly to me. It arrived in a long cardboard box made from two shorter boxes taped end to end. They tapered the end of the bottom box to a small hole to stabilize the middle of this pole, and encased the top and bottom of the pole in some styrofoam so they wouldn't shift. It arrived in good order. It was quick and easy to install, though customers need to know they'll have to carefully drill out the rivets on the free end, taking care to preserve the little washers there. They'll also need two 5/32" pop rivets with a 1/4" working range, and a rivet tool in order to reinstall the awning to the pole. The pole comes with a composite hinge ring installed, so no need to pull the old one off the pole they are replacing. A word about the Foxwing awning: I own two: One on my rooftop tent that I use on my Land Cruiser, and one on my truck-mounted camper. Though there are a couple of other foxwing-style awnings which are less...fiddly...in that they don't require as much staking down with ropes, etc., their price point is about twice what the Foxwing's is. Well anchored, our Foxwing has just sat there through a microburst in Zion which featured lightning, pelting rain, and hailstones the size of quarters, but the anchoring needs to be very well attended to. If the ground is loose, or you can't really anchor the guy ropes well, it is best to stow the awning if the weather looks very windy. I needed to repair my Foxwing because of an incident which occurred in Glacier this last summer. The ground wasn't very good, and the report was for fairly high winds, so we set about stowing the Foxwing...because I didn't expect the ground anchors to hold. My usual method is to unfasten the anchor strap which attaches the top strut to the rack when the awning is at full deployment, then walk the awning around, pulling the vertical supports as I go, and keeping firm control of the furled awning. I had the assistance of a friend impatient with my plodding process. He went in front of me and harvested all the vertical poles. Unfortunately, as I was gathering in the awning, a 60mph gust swept down from the hills, striking the top of the awning. The unsupported horizontal braces bent under the load, and one of the metal hinge pieces on the end of one strut fractured. That pole struck me forcefully on the head. I started talking like Donald Duck, while continuing to wrestle the awning to a place we could just anchor it, and wait out the wind. I was able to partially straighten the bent pole, at least to the point where the awning could be stowed, and by driving out the drift pin which held the pole into the broken metal hinge piece, was able to run a couple of courses of thin stainless wire through the drift pin hole and around the hinge pin, anchoring the base of that pole and allowing it to be stowed. The broken hinge piece was replaced with a composite replacement, which I think is more robust, and is included on the new racks, standard. The bent pole couldn't be repaired, and that's the one you sent me a replacement for. So: This is a really robust awning, but its weak point is that the anchoring needs to be done very well. Otherwise, I'd stow it in winds above about 15-20 mph. We now carry an assortment of stakes, from 14" long construction spikes for hard ground, to screw-in anchors for soft ground and sand. We also carry a bunch of 6 foot NRS straps, which are good for wrapping around trees and rocks, and then hooking to the adjustable anchor ropes from the awning. The awning ropes don't tolerate much abrasion, so we let the NRS straps suck up that punishment. So far, so good. Again, thank you for the extraordinary effort to which you all went to provide me with this very awkward-to-ship part. Hint to the USPS: Don't try to put an 8 foot long pole in a 7 foot long delivery jeep. Just sayin'. Stan

The rubber gasket to hold the poles is not adequate.
