Expert Answers about Car 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.

  • 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.

  • Installing a Rhino Dome 1300 Awning on 2014 Nissan Rouge with Factory Crossbars
  • The Rhino Rack Dome Awning part # RR32125 that you referenced can only attach to crossbars that have top channels on them. Since the factory bars of your 2014 Nissan Rogue don't have those you'd need to install an additional set of crossbars that do have channels like the Malone Roof Rack part # MPG215 and you'd be set. I attached an install video for this rack on a similar 2015 Rogue for you to check out as well.

  • 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...

  • What is Difference Between Thule Hideaway Awnings Roof Rack Mount and Wall Mount
  • The Thule Hideaway that mounts to roof racks part # TH490008 is designed to attach to a set of crossbars and comes with hardware to do so whereas the Thule Hideaway wall mount # TH490011 comes with hardware to attach to the side of a wall. So the mounting hardware is the key difference.

  • Rhino-Rack Batwing Awning on High-Roof Sprinter
  • Yes you can use this with your high-roof Sprinter but you will need the Long Pole set, # RR52FJ in addition to do so. The Rhino-Rack Batwing Awning, # RR33200 that mounts to the roof rack itself has telescoping poles with max height of 84". The Batwing Awning extends in a relative flat plane and cannot be pulled down to a steeper angle, so the 84" poles will not work with the height of Sprinter high-roof that is approximately 108".

  • Can I Use the Rhino Rack Batwing on a Tear Drop Trailer with a Rear Hatch That Opens 12" Above Roof
  • I have a solution for you to add an awning that will work on your trailer with the Yakima roof rack, but because of the placement of that rear door and how high it raises above the roof, the Rhino-Rack Batwing Awning - Roof Rack Mount - Bolt On - Passenger's Side - 118 Sq Ft # RR33200 isn't likely going to work for you. I think you would find that the Batwing and rear hatch on the camper would hit each other when used together. Instead, you can use something like the Rhino-Rack Dome...

  • What is the Leg Height of Thule Hideaway Awnings
  • I have a solution for you, but there is not an awning that's truly designed to extend parallel to the ground from your coach, so the legs on most awnings are going to be shorter than where the awning is mounted. This helps keep water from pooling on top of the awning fabric and stretching it out or potentially damaging the legs of the unit. With that said, the legs on the Thule HideAway Awning - Direct Mount # TH490011 extend 8 feet and would give you the tallest awning we have available....

  • What Roof Awning do You Recommend with My Prime Design Alurack on My Nissan NV200?
  • I have a solution for you. According to the available research I have on your Prime Design Alurack, there are vertical side rails that run from the front to the rear of your 2021 Nissan NV200. This particular design makes it incompatible with most traditional awnings that are designed to mount onto horizontal crossbars. With that being said, a creative solution is the Kelty Waypoint Car Awning - 11' Long x 13' 9" Wide # KE33TR (olive drab/dark gray) or the # KE53TR (dark teal/orange)....

I looked up the width of the Ford Rangers of that generation and they are 69-1/2 inches. So there would be a little bit of overhang on your 60 inch wide trailer but this would still work fine.

  • The legs on the Rhino Rack Dome 1300 Awning - Roof Rack Mount # RR32125 can be adjusted between 5ft tall and 8-1/2 feet tall. However, the amount of clearance you'll have closest to the vehicle depends on how tall your vehicle is where this awning is mounted. This will work on crossover wagon style vehicles like a Subaru Outback but you're going to the most clearance when it's mounted on a truck or large SUV like a GMC Yukon or Jeep Wrangler with a lift kit installed.
