  • Comparing the Thule HideAway Roll Out Awning # TH490011 and # TH490010
    The difference is that the Thule HideAway Roll Out Awning # TH490011 is a direct mount which you install with the included hardware while the Thule HideAway Roll Out Awning # TH490010 is a roof rack mount and it requires a roof rack for the installation. Other than that they are the exact same awning.

  • Does Thule HideAway Awning # TH490010 Come with all Brackets and Hardware
    The # TH490010 comes with all brackets needed to install. I found the question and answer page you mentioned where I gave a part number for replacement hardware for the Thule HideAway Awning # TH490010 that you mentioned. So just to clarify the # TH490010 comes with the # TH1500602390 but the guy I was helping was needing a replacement for brackets that I assume he lost.

  • Mounting Thule HideAway Awning on 2015 RAM ProMaster Van
    The Dodge ProMaster Van Adapter for Thule HideAway Awning TH620002 # TH301650 will attach to preset mounting points in your roof line so there is not drilling. I've attached a picture to assist. This installation does not require any additional hardware or brackets, just the awning # TH490011 you referenced.

  • Availability for Instructions to Install Thule HideAway Awning on a 2018 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter
    Yes! All of this is actually in the linked instructions for the Thule HideAway Roll Out Awning # TH490011 on this page. Since this is a universal fit the instructions are specifically tailored to a 2018 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500 but they are detailed enough for the installation.

  • Difference Between Thule Hideaway Awnings TH490011 and TH490010
    Broadly speaking the difference between the two Thule Hideaway kits is that the # TH490011 is a flat mount that attaches to the side of an RV like you need whereas the part # TH490010 is for attaching to a roof rack. There are several smaller details between the two that are different so that each application fits as best as it can so you are correct they are slightly different. The brackets you ordered will show up. There's no reason why the kit would show up incomplete.

  • Thule HideAway Awning Installation on 2015 Forest River R Pod
    The Thule HideAway Awning - Direct Mount - Waterproof - 80 sq ft # TH490011 will mount directly to the side of your 2015 Forest River R-Pod trailer with the included mounting brackets and hardware. It will require drilling directly into a stud/support location to give you the weight support needed. I recommend using silicone in the locations where you install the brackets as outlined in the attached instructions. You can use either # 0160297 or a silicone gasket maker like # LT37467...

  • How to Remove the Thule HideAway Awning for Storage
    You will be able to easily remove the Thule HideAway Awning # TH490011 from the mounting brackets that come with the direct mounting kit, but it should be noted that this awning only sticks out 3-1/2" from the side of your R-Pod trailer. I've attached a picture that shows in the instructions for the HideAway and how it mounts to the mounting plates that attach to your trailer, but it does mount and come off fairly easily.

  • How Far do Legs Extend of Thule HideAway Awning and How Far Does it Stick Out When Retracted
    I reached out to the manufacturer, Thule, who told me the legs of the Thule HideAway Awning - Direct Mount # TH490011 extend 8 feet. These legs do fold up into the awning so you do not have to remove them every time you use the awning, which makes it easy to use. I have added a link to a video review which shows this occurring at about the 4:30 mark. The video review is for the roof rack mounted HideAway awning but the legs fold into the awning on the direct-mount as well. As far as...

  • Recommendation for Mounting Thule Hideaway Awning on 2019 Promaster Van
    Because you can mount the Thule Hideaway Awning- Direct Mount # TH490011 directly onto your 2019 Ram Promaster Van and we haven't tested this awning on a Vantech H2 Cargo rack, I think going with the direct mounting option is your best bet. In order to mount this on your Promaster you'll want to use the Thule HideAway Awning Adapter for Dodge ProMaster Cargo Van # TH308960, which will give you a custom mount designed specifically for your van. If you did want to try to mount it on your...

  • How To Install the Thule HideAway Awning On a Trailer
    The Thule HideAway Awning part # TH490011 offers direct mount installation. Therefore, you'd need to attach the brackets directly to the wall of the trailer. If you have existing brackets, these would need to be removed. I have attached for you below a photo that will help you get a better idea of what all is involved for installation.

  • How to Add Direct-Mount Thule Awning to 2018 Ford Transit T150
    While we can get you the right parts to add a Thule awning to your 2018 Ford Transit T150 van, it would be with parts that are different than what you mentioned, because those are not a fit for Ford vans. Instead, you would need to add a permanent, direct-mount to your van. You will be able to use one of the following awnings, with the only difference being their size, and they do come with mounting hardware for a permanent installation on your 2018 Ford Transit T150. - 55 sq. ft....

  • Can Rhino-Rack Sunseeker Awning Install Without Crossbars
    The Rhino-Rack Sunseeker awning, part # RR32133, does require crossbars or the Rhino-Rack Pioneer platform, all of which are linked, to mount on your roof. It does install into the channel on a crossbars that have one, which many do, but not directly onto the tracks you already have. The picture you're referring to may be the one I attached. That's the Sunseeker installed in the channels on a the Pioneer platform. We do carry different sizes of the Pioneer that fit onto tracks like...

  • Does Yakima SlimShady Awning Require Crossbars to Install
    The Yakima SlimShady Awning - Roof Rack Mount - Clamp On # Y07409 does require a pair of crossbars with at least 24" of spread in order to mount. As you can see by the cut out of the instructions I added, this is how it secures to your vehicle's roof and would not work on a bar parallel to the awning. There is an option for an awning that does not mount to a roof rack, the Thule HideAway Awning - Direct Mount - Waterproof - 55 sq ft # TH490018 and Thule HideAway Awning - Direct Mount...

  • Choosing Between the Roof Rack Mount and Direct Mount Thule HideAway for a 2016 Mercedes Sprinter
    In order to install a Thule HideAway Awning on your 2016 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500 you will need to use the roof rack mount option, part # TH490010 along with a roof rack like the Thule Evo ProBar System part # TH713700, part # TH460R, and part # THKIT3101 if you have factory roof tracks or the Thule Evo ProBar System part # TH713700, part # TH460R, and part # THKIT3032 if you have the factory fixed mounting points. The reason you must use the roof rack mount option and not the direct...

  • 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.

  • Recommended Thule QuickFit Tent For Thule HideAway Awning
    I do have an option for you but the Medium QuickFit Tent for Thule HideAway Awning part # TH309921 is only compatible with the Thule HideAway awning part # TH620002 which is a roof mount awning. Since you have a Thule HideAway Awning Direct Mount like part # TH490011 that measures 8-1/2 feet long. I have confirmed with Thule you will need the Medium QuickFit Tent for Thule HideAway part # TH309920. They currently do not offer a 10 foot tent for the wall mount options.

  • Distance Between Mounting Channels on Thule HideAway Awning Roof Rack Mount
    There are a few different Thule HideAway Awnings available, such as the roof rack mount type like part # TH490010 or the direct mount type like part # TH490011. The roof rack mount type is the option which has the channels on the back and these channels are spaced 2-3/8" apart on center. The t-bolt that slides into this channel is the Thule T-Bolt part # 853-5715 which has an M8 stud.

    I do have an option that will allow you to use the Rhino-Rack Batwing Awning part # RR33200 on your 1991 Volkswagen Vanagon Westfalia but I do not have any information on Rhino-Racks intentions to produce an adapter for rain gutters or straight bolt-on applications. However, if you were to install the Thule WingBar Evo Crossbar part # TH711520 and the Thule Rapid Gutter Feet for AeroBlade Crossbars part # TH300R which is a fit for your Vanagon Westfalia that will then allow you to mount...
