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 passenger'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.

Video Transcript for Rhino-Rack Batwing Compact Awning Review

Colin: Hi everyone. I'm Colin, here at eTrailer, and today we're going to take a look at Rhino racks batwing compact awning.Now this awning mounts to the roof rack of your vehicle, provides you with shade from the sun, or protection from the rain for those social events like tailgates or farmers markets or anything like that. Now the reason they designed this compact awning, is because some customers wanted something a little bit smaller, they went to those events and realized they didn't have quite enough space for that big awning that took up 118 square feet. This awning's going to be taking up about 69 square feet and give you that shade you need during those events, and not take up that much space. It's also going to be a great option for your small to medium sized vehicle that might have a shorter wheel base.Now we give you guys a quick comparison on the right side, we're going to have the batwing compact, and on the other side, on my left side, we're going to have the original batwing. Right away you're going to see the difference and how much square feet you're going to have of coverage.

It's going to have same four poles for support. It's really just going to have all the same features, the only difference being that our wingspan is a lot larger and the canvas on top is bigger.It uses two slots to connect to your roof rack. It's also going to be compatible with your pioneer rack, if you have one of those. Otherwise, if you have just a normal two cross bar roof rack, you just need to make sure you have that T-slot up front, it just slides right in on the edge.One thing to be mindful of, if you're setting this up by yourself on a windy day, the wind could catch under your awning and lift it up before you have the anchor point set. So, a simple solution is to anchor each leg into the ground before you get the wingspan completely around.

Just once you get one leg, anchor it down, spread it out more. Next one. And just keep going along to make sure it stays anchored to the ground and the awning isn't caught by the wind.It's going to come with eight of these orange guide wires that help secure your awning down into the ground, just give it more connection points so those windy days doesn't affect it too much. And the bright orange color is going to be very visible for if you're walking and you might not be paying attention, that orange color will catch your eye so you won't trip over the wires.Another thing we do want to point out about the guide wires is if you're experiencing some rain, you can set it up to where it's attached to the middle of our canvas. We have a slot right there for that reason.

So that you have a run off for the water to come off and it doesn't just pool on top of your canvas.It's going to have four of these telescoping arms that go up to seven feet, and they're also going to allow you to get your awning level on any uneven terrain. All you're going to do is twist the bottom of it, you can raise it up or down and then tighten it back down. You do want to make sure you do this before you have it anchored down.The canvas is made out of rip stop polyester, which is going to be UV, water and mold resistant. You going to have this nice bag that's going to hold all your guide wires and stakes very easily. There's also going to be a pocket on the storage case up there, where it will slide right in and store along with the awning.When not in use, it stows in its bag very easily.

You've just got to get it folded up. We have these hook and loop straps that hold it in place. And when not in use it also does have this nice cover to go over top with a zipper secured in there to protect it from any inclement weather.So the first thing you're going to do is undo your hook and loop pads on the back and begin to unzip it. Now let's go ahead and show you how to set it up. I'm going to start back here. We need to tear off the Velcro on the back so we can access our zipper. Now we can unzip it all the way to the front. All the way up. And flip the cover over, like so.Now we need to locate this pocket. Tear the Velcro off and pull out our stake pockets and ropes. Then we can just flip that over top. We'll set this aside. We'll need to come back for it. Now we can go around and tear all of our hook and loop straps off. Let the cover unroll itself. Now we can pull our arms out of their slots, and begin to swing it all the way around the vehicle, letting go of each arm when it gets fully extended.And we need to grab the strap that's on the end of our batwing, get it around our anchor point that we have installed on top of our roof. From there, go to the end and cinch it down. Now we can go around, get all of our legs detached and bring it down and loosen it up so the leg can extend and make contact with the ground. Get it fit to the height you want, then tighten it back up. Do the same for the other legs.Now we have a particularly windy day, so we want to go ahead and get our anchors in the ground on all four of our legs. Now it's going to work, is one of our stakes is going to go into these slots. You can see on the bottom of the leg on the foot, it's going to go through and down. Push it straight down into the ground. We have nice soft ground here right now, so it goes straight through. The same right there. We already have all the outer anchor points installed. It's a pretty windy day, but you can see that all these anchor points are going to be very sturdy and hold our batwing down.Now we're just going to go around, grab hold of our hook and loop straps right here, wrap them around our support poles. Want to get pretty tight, so you can get the tarp nice and taut. Just make sure there's a lot less billowing when you have them all secured. And then just repeat this process for the other three straps.Now we're going to go around and attach guide wires to the parts of our batwing where we deem it most appropriate. Because it's windy and the wind is coming from that direction, we're going to go around and pull the tarp down, so the wind has a harder time getting underneath. We have the metal hook into that little vinyl loop for it, and we're going to pull it down. Going to grab one of our stakes right here. Plant it in the ground, making sure this open side is facing away. Want to go in at a bit of an angle. You can use your foot to get these in, sometimes if you need to. Now, we're going to wrap the orange guide wire around it, like so. Just bring it under like that. Now we're going to go back up, we're going to pull however far we need to, to feel comfortable. Once we have it set to the appropriate length, we're going to take our black hook right here, attach it to the rope, like so. You'll repeat this process for any other guide wires you wish to install.So that's going to do it for our look at the Rhino rack batwing compact awning.

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Batwing in Vehicle Awnings


Overall Very Happy. It is mounted on driver side of 2001 Tacoma with bed topper. Some things I would have liked to know at time of purchase: -It really is a large amount of space, when opened. (We got it so that we have a place to be other than the cab or the bed when its raining) Lots of space to work or relax, with great rain coverage -I don't think I get a full 270 degrees with it (maybe 265 degrees), meaning when opened up, it doesn't quite come all the way around to the back corner of the tail gate and sit straight inline with the back of the truck. Instead it angles out slightly leaving a slight gap between the awning and back of the truck where rain can drip in. -The plastic hinge pieces WILL break eventually. its not a big deal, you probably won't even notice till you go to put it away. mine came with a couple extras and changing them out is easy. In a year of heavy use, I had one break. I do think making these parts out of aluminum would be an improvement. -It is very very fast and easy to use. takes about a 60 seconds to set up or put away, so we end up using it way more than we originally thought we would. the strings and stakes take longer but on a not-windy day, you really don't need them. -You will need to get creative or just buy the zip on extension when the sun is at an angle. It is easy to lower one side or the other but then the ceiling is very low over your head Does exactly what we want: lets us enjoy outdoors more and actually be outside when truck camping, despite the weather. Would buy again. Will be buying an extension or 2. 707418

Review from a similar Rhino Rack Batwing in Vehicle Awnings


We just got back from our second long trip out west and I didn't want to give a review of the awning until we returned. To be honest I'm not happy with the Rhino awning. For starters the cover leaks badly. After every rain I need to open, drain and let dry to prevent mold. The front of the support has already cracked. This doesn't effect operation but is disappointing. The legs of the awning supports have also have broken and no longer adjust, not sure if I caused this or they have just seized in one of the pole sections. The awning can not be set up in the lightest of wind unless it's fully staked out with guy lines. Doesn't sound like a big deal but negates the advantage of setting it up quickly, a $50 big box store awning can be set up as quick. For the price it's not worth the cool factor and I wouldn't recommend to a friend for purchase. Hope this helps 663562

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

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


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


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


This is the one piece of camping gear that once it's set up people just come by and say "whoah". First off, it's huge and the amount of coverage it gives is amazing and makes single panel awnings just look silly in comparison. I love how easy it is to set-up which makes it a no-brainer whether or not to deploy it, always yes. Here's a few tips after using it for a year... If it's windy at all stake it down and if you have a buddy to help with setup all the better. These things are like giant sails and I've snapped a few of the hinge pieces due to big gusts and not staking it down. The GOOD news is that the hinges are designed to snap under load (instead of the more expensive arms) and are easily replaceable and you can do it with basic hand tools by yourself so keep the spares they give you in the stake pouch. You can extend the coverage with the zip-on panels ...or just get some spring clamps and attach a sheet/tarp/towel/whatever for the extra shade. I had someone come up and chat me up about the awning and he asked this simple question, "if you had to do it over would you buy this one again?". 100% yes. 728847

I've had the Rhino Rack Batwing for 1 year now and it has held up to many weather scenarios. From blistering sun to pounding rain and wind, it hasn't failed me yet. Every trip we go on, people are amazed at it's size and simplicity. And they're even more impressed by how affordable it is versus a conventional awning. I have been very impressed with the quality of this product and would promote it to anyone looking for an 8 foot awning. 703293

Much improved over the previous Foxwing. It’s stable in strong winds if guyed out properly, love the integrated poles and guy and stake stowage Recommend the tapered extensions with this, creates great wind/ rain barrier and additional privacy and covered living space. Disappointed in the bag design. It leaks while stowed allowing the awning fabric to stay wet and mildew. 700064

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...

  • Awning to Fit Camper with Raised Rails on Roof
  • The type of awning that's going to work best on your camper is one that will attach directly to the sidewall of the camper like the Thule Hideaway part # TH490011 for a 10' long x 8' wide awning or # TH490018 for a 8-1/2' long x 6-1/2' wide awning. This won't require any attachment or integration with the rails you have now on the roof of the camper and gives you a solid awning setup. There isn't a solution that would attach to the rails you have currently also.

  • In order to mount the Rhino-Rack Batwing Compact Awning # RR33400 (or any similar awning system) to the roof of your 2017 Subaru Forester, you will first need to replace the factory bars that came equipped with the vehicle.
