Batwing Compact diagram
Batwing installed in use

Perfect for tailgating, outdoor markets, and camping, the Rhino-Rack Batwing provides shade anywhere you take your vehicle. The awning mounts to your Rhino-Rack Pioneer platform or crossbars with top channels. It is supported by built-in telescoping poles that let a single person set it up and break it down in minutes. Made of ripstop, polyester canvas that is resistant to UV rays, water, and mold, the awning swings out 270 degrees from your driver's side to provide you with 69 sq ft of shade. With different awning extensions (sold separately), you can expand the shade coverage or even create an enclosure around your vehicle. The Batwing's 50+ UPF protection has earned it an official endorsement by Cancer Council Australia.


Quick, One-Person Setup


Unfolds to 270 degrees

Using just one motion, the Batwing unfolds 270 degrees from your vehicle's roof to provide 69 sq ft of shade. Just unzip the storage bag, flip the integrated storage pouch containing pegs and guy ropes out of the way, and bring the awning from the side of your vehicle toward the rear. Then, use the integrated tension strap to secure the awning to the back of your roof rack.


Built-in telescoping support poles

The telescoping support poles are built into the awning, which means you don't have to attach each pole separately during setup. Simply unclasp each pole from the built-in clips on the awning and drop them into position. After this, tighten the poles to the necessary height. You can also adjust the poles to different heights to suit any type of terrain, so the awning is always steady and secure.


poles held in place by magnets

When not in use, the poles are held in place by rare earth Neodymium magnets. Just push them toward the frame and they'll automatically secure to the housing.


Secure the poles to the ground using the included metal pegs

After all the poles are set up, anchor them to the ground using the included pegs. The feet have 2 holes built in to let you drive 2 pegs into the ground at opposing sides for enhanced stability.


Hooked guy ropes for maximum tension

To bring the Batwing to maximum tension, attach the hooked guy ropes to the frame and secure them to the ground with the pegs. Using the additional tie-down point in the mid-section of the awning will allow rainwater to easily drain off. As an added benefit, the guy ropes have a bright orange color to improve visibility at night.


Tough, Durable Construction

durable construction

Strong and lightweight, the awning's ripstop, polyester canvas is waterproof, mold resistant, and UV protected. The telescoping poles and awning frame are constructed of aluminum and finished with a black powder coat, so they won't rust or fade when exposed to the weather. When not in use, all the parts are stored inside the heavy-duty PVC storage cover.


cancer council endorsement

The Batwing has earned an endorsement from Cancer Council Australia for its UV protection. It received a 50+ UPF rating during independent testing, meaning it will allow less than 2 percent of effective UV transmission.


Easy, No Drill Installation

Mounts directly to your Rhino Rack rooftop crossbars

The Batwing is mounted to your roof in one piece, so there is no need to remove anything from the storage cover during installation. The included mounting brackets attach to the channels on the Batwing's frame and then mount to your Pioneer platform or crossbars with top channels. The brackets can be used for either system using different mounting hole configurations. They simply install into the integrated channels and tighten down.


The Batwing will install to Rhino-Rack Heavy-Duty crossbars with a hardware kit (RR33101 - sold separately). To mount it to square and round roof rack crossbars, you will need to purchase a mounting kit (sold separately).


Additional Accessories Available

extension examples

The Batwing has an optional 43 sq ft extension (RR32111 - sold separately) to provide more shade and improve your outdoor experience. With this extension, you can increase your overhead coverage or make a windbreaker or sidewall. It easily installs by zipping to the outer edges of the awning. And just like the Batwing, it uses telescoping poles, guy ropes, and pegs to secure to the ground. The extension is made of durable, ripstop polycotton canvas which is waterproof, mold resistant, and UV protected.


integrated channels

In addition to attaching extensions to the awning, the frame itself can hold additional accessories. The awning frame is compatible with channel mount accessories, like the Rhino-Rack shovel holder (RR43103 - sold separately). These accessories attach to the frame using the same channels you use to mount the awning to your roof rack.

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Batwing in Vehicle Awnings


Installed this Batwing on my Intech Micro Toy Hauler - Only thing I had to do was buy some 2" bolts so that I could bolt her to the rack. Easy to install and super easy to set up. In a few years I can tell you how well it holds up. From the looks of it my guess would be that it will hold up pretty well. 541676

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Batwing in Vehicle Awnings


We received the Batwing Awning last week and immediately went to set it up. The packaging leaves a bit to be desired as it is mostly just the awning inside a box with no real protection. But ours arrived just fine. The installation supplies came in a separate box which for some reason wasn't delivered the same day. Not a huge deal but a bit of a bummer. We ordered the optional Yakima round bar install kit as well. Installation is pretty simple and quick. The installation manual is a bit convoluted and not super clear in my opinion but really looking at the parts it is pretty easy to figure out how it installs. We installed the "L" brackets to the rack first using the Yakima mounting kit. We left the u-bolt a bit loose so the brackets could move a bit. From there, there are 4 t-bolts that slide in channels so we slide those in. Now for lifting the actual Batwing, it will depend both on your size and vehicle. We used two people and it was easy. We left one end on the ground and lifted the other till we could installed on of the t-bolts. From there one of us lifted the other end up and the second person slide the bolts to where they needed to be and installed the nuts. Then it was just a matter of tightening everything down. We did snug the t-bolts down and then loosened them a half turn which left the batwing slide in the tracks for positioning. One thing to note with the mounting. There is only one spot for the U-bolt to go through the "L" bracket. Depending on how your bars are setup you might not have all that much adjustment possibly as to how far out the batwing will be. On our bars there is only about 2.5 inches of bar and then the Yakima "feet" that mount the bar to the trailer. The L bracket and u-bolt are such a design that we had to mount it to those 2.5" which has the batwing approx. 1" over the edge of the trailer. We would have liked to have it recessed over the trailer but the Yakima feet prevent this. This isn't a problem with the batwing but just something to consider. After we had the batwing mounted we decided to open it up. If you have watched a video....it really is that easy. Undo the end Velcro flap, unzip, and flip the cover over. Then just grab the front and pull the bar out. Then just start walking it out and it opens right up. It does sag quite a bit and I wouldn't leave it unsupported for long. Or if its windy I would consider doing one section at a time and staking it down before opening it up more. Once its open pull down the support leg and set it to the height desired. The legs are just tall enough to clear the rear hatch on our teardrop. Our teardrop is a "off-road" model and does sit a bit higher so regular height teardrops would have no issue. To put it away its pretty much the opposite. Though we started at the far end, folded the leg up, then moved to the next pole. Putting the Batwing away was overall simple and easy. The magnets hold the poles in well enough. We got it to zip the first try though it was a bit tight. When rolling the material to put it away try to spread it out instead of letting it bunch up in one spot. Overall for our first time setup/deployment took around 5 minutes and putting it away took about the same. Future times should be quicker. Of note is to make sure you stake it down and use the guy-wires if its at all windy. We didn't for the driveway setup and a slight gust (around 10mph) was enough to lift one section up for a moment. it does act like a big sail so just make sure to have it properly secured if its going to be windy. As for use, it provides a lot of cover. Especially for shade! For rain protection it will work well. Though you might end up with less "space" if the rain isn't straight down. On our teardrop the edge by the door barely goes past the door so any sort of wind could most likely blow rain on the door. Same at the last section it barely covers the rear drivers corner so again it might not fully protect against rain. But it still does provide a lot of coverage. We do plan to get one of the available wall sections to attach for if we do need rain protection. We are very pleased with both the quality and the ease of use of the Batwing. We recommend it! 543881

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Batwing in Vehicle Awnings


I live in a semi arid region of Southern California, so shade is pretty crucial for me. Since I intend to do solo trips in my Honda Element, I shopped around for an awning that looked easy to deploy solo, and the Batwing was it. It’s not installed yet, since etrailer’s shipping was so fast, it actually got here before all the parts for my roof rack were delivered! 560651

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Batwing in Vehicle Awnings


I was looking for an awning that covered the tailgate of my truck bed and I already had an awning that hung of the side of my truck so instead of buying a second small one I sold off my existing side awning and purchased the Batwing. I had read great reviews about the previous model and was confident that the new one would be even better. When the awning arrived I was very disappointed just by looking at the packaging. It looked like it had been thrown around whenever it was handled and had several punctures in the cardboard box. It also had a ton of extra tape on the ends as if it had been opened before or fell out during shipment. After opening up the box I was relieved that there was not any significant damage to the awning itself. Ok on to the awning itself... During initial setup in my driveway I was wowed at how easy everything was to setup by myself. I love how the poles are held in place to the mounting plate with magnets and to deploy it all you have to do is grab the top one, pull it away and the rest of them release on their own. Another thing I love about the Batwing is that the vertical support legs are built into the awning itself. They deploy and pack away very easily. I did not stake it down or guy it out during this test setup. The awning comes with hardware and brackets to mount onto your roof rack though you may need different hardware depending on what rack you have. The coverage this awning provides is just what I wanted and it's features make it well worth the investment. One thing I would change is I wish the cover was fully zippered instead of 90% zippered with a Velcro closure at the back end. The hinge is exposed and water runs inside and gets the awning wet. I live in the Pacific northwest and a little bit of rain has found it's way to the front of the awning. 494460

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Batwing in Vehicle Awnings


This review is directed more toward doing business with etrailer rather than reviewing the product itself. Although I'm sure the awning will not disappoint after reading too many positive reviews. I'm an active duty Coast Guard member serving in Southeast Alaska in a remote island where shipping is a nightmare more often than not. I contacted RhinoRack directly for this awning and asked about shipping. RhinoRack responded with saying shipping to Southeast Alaska would be $600!!! It was a pleasure doing business with etrailer. They were able to save me lots of money, and kept me informed on my purchase and shipping information. The item arrived on time and in great condition. Thank you for your help and support etrailer! 642049

  • How To Use the Rhino-Rack Batwing on a 2004 Jeep Wrangler with Smittybilt Roof Rack
  • I may have an option for you but I took a look at the Smittybilt Roof Rack that you have on your 2004 Jeep Wrangler and the only way I can think of to attach one of our Rhino-Rack Batwing Awnings is with new crossbars. The reason for this is that the awning requires a top channel to mount and the round crossbars you have do not possess this top channel. The best option we have for new crossbars are the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars part # RRVA180B-2 for 71" long or part # RRVA200B-2...
