  • Yakima SlimShady Clamps and Bracket
    You'd want the SlimShady Mounting Bracket # 8880736 and Clamp # 8880737 for clamps of the SlimShady # Y07409.

  • Will Batwing Awning Work With Yakima Roof Rack With Round Crossbars
    The red arrow you are referring to in the accompanying photo is a part of the mounting hardware that comes with the now-discontinued RR32105, which is the entire awning and not just one part. You would not be able to attach a Batwing Awning # RR33200 or # RR33100 to your Yakima round bars; the best option for you is the Yakima SlimShady Roll-Out Awning # Y07409 which will work with round crossbars so long as they have a spread that is a minimum of 24".

  • Are Sidewalls Available for the Yakima SlimShady Awning
    I do have a solution for you but unfortunately the Yakima SlimShady Awning # Y07409 does not have any side panels that you can add. We do have the Rhino-Rack Sunseeker Awning # RR32132 though which is a little bit larger and is comparable to the SlimShady. Rhino-Rack offers the side panel # RR32112 which you can add one to either side and the front panel # RR32111. You can use these to extend the footprint of the awning or as a windbreaker/privacy section. I have attached a review video...

  • Parts Needed To Replace Clamps On Yakima SlimShady Roll-Out Awning
    The Yakima SlimShady Awning # Y07409 fits the round bars of your Yakima rack with it's included clamps. If you no longer have the clamps that came with the awning then you can replace the two clamps with Replacement Clamp Assembly for Yakima SlimShady Roll-Out Awning # 8880737 and replacement Mounting Bracket for Yakima SlimShady Roll-Out Awning # 8880736. You would also want to add the SKS lock cores # Y07202 to the new clamps if you do not already have locks. If you do have locks from...

  • 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...

  • Awning Recommendation for a Yakima Core Bar Roof Rack on a Truck Bed Camper Shell
    There isn't a mount kit or way to attach the Sunseeker II awning RR32105 to Yakima Core Bars. The telescoping poles have a max height of 77 inches. Since the Sunseeker can't be installed I recommend the Yakima SlimShady Roll-Out Awning # Y07409 which will fit the core bars. The maximum height of the support poles for this awning is 84 inches.

  • Can Yakima Slim Shady Roll-Out Awning Y07409 Install on Yakima Roof Rack on Tear Camper
    Yes, you can mount the Yakima SlimShady Roll-Out Awning # Y07409 to the Yakima crossbars that are mounted to the top of your teardrop camper as long as those crossbars are spaced apart at least 24-inches on a flat surface. This particular bar spread is required for stability but the SlimShady installs on just about any size and shape of crossbar, including Yakima round bars like # Y8810025, Thule square bars like # TH712400 and even the wider elliptical/aero-style bars like the Thule...

  • What is the Minimum and Maximum Pole Height of the Yakima SlimShady Awning
    The poles of the Yakima SlimShady # Y07409 range from 4 to 7 feet. Yes, the legs can be set at any height within that range. This will accommodate vehicles that are taller or shorter or give you the option to slant the SlimShady to block the sun.

If your [email protected] XL has round, square, aero, or elliptical crossbars that are at least 24" apart then yes, this awning will fit your trailer. It will simply clamp onto those crossbars and give you 36 square feet of shade.

  • Roof Rack and Awning for 2018 Volkswagen Atlas with Raised Roof Side Rails
    For a suitable roof rack for your 2018 Volkswagen Atlas to allow for awning installation I suggest their Vortex Aero roof rack which is made for your raised roof side rails; you will want to order parts # RRVA137B-2 and # RRSX022 along with the awning for a complete set-up.

  • Do I Need a Cargo Basket to Mount the Yakima SlimShady on a Runaway Navigator Camper?
    I have good news for you. The Yakima SlimShady Awning # Y07409 is designed to mount to roof rack crossbars, so which cargo basket you use won't really have any effect on your ability to mount the SlimShady-it depends on your crossbars. This awning can be used on round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars so long as your crossbars are at least 24" apart. If you're looking to add a cargo basket to help carry some of your gear, the RhinoRack XTray Pro Cargo Basket # RRRMCB03...

  • What Prevents Replacement Clamp and Bracket on Yakima SlimShady Awning from Sliding Along Rail
    To install the replacement clamp assembly # 8880737 and bracket # 8880736 on the Yakima SlimShady Awning # Y07409, there are two t-bolts that are inserted into the upper channel of each side of the SlimShady rail. You would then place the clamp onto the bolts and thread a lock washer and nut on each bolt. At first you only need to tighten by hand and once installed, open the clamp completely. This allows you to slide the clamps along the awning to properly position them for installation....

  • Will Rhino Rack Dome 1300 Awning Fit Yakima Roof Rack
    If the Yakima roof rack you have installed on your tear trailer has channels on top of the bars yes, the Rhino Rack Dome 1300 Awning # RR32125 would fit and work well. Or we also have the Yakima SlimShady Awning part # Y07409 which does fit your all styles of the Yakima crossbars.

  • Awning Compatibility with AluRack Rooftop Rack on Sprinter 2500
    The Rhino-Rack Sunseeker Awning # RR32132 is designed to install on a roof rack that has bars with a channel or slot in their top surfaces. These include their own Vortex Aero bars like the ones in the 3-bar roof rack made for the Sprinter 2500 with a bare standard roof, which consists of parts # RRVA180B-3, # RLTFMS and # RRVA-FK1-3. I linked a photo to show you this bar type and the mounting channel. AluRack makes racks that are much like a large roof cargo basket and these do not...

  • Does Yakima Replacement Clamp Assembly # 8880737 Come in a Pair
    The Yakima Replacement Clamp # 8880737 referenced in your question comes with 1 clamp assembly. For a pair you will just need to order 2 of the clamps. These are designed to fit the Yakima SlimShady Roll-Out Awning # Y07409.

  • Can Rhino Rack Batwing Awning Attach to 2019 Toyota Rav 4 Adventure with Factory Crossbars
    We have a roof rack awning that does fit the factory crossbars of your 2019 Toyota RAV4 as the Yakima SlimShady part # Y07409 but the Rhino Rack Batwing you mentioned requires a roof rack that has top channels so you'd have to add that as well. You could add the Malone roof rack part # MPG216 to the raised side rails of your roof and you'd be ready to use the Batwing.

  • Can Yakima SlimShady Roll-Out Awning Y07409 Attach to MegaWarrior Rooftop Cargo Basket
    Yes, you can mount the Yakima SlimShady Roll-Out Awning # Y07409 to either the rear rail or on the sides of the basket by attaching to the bottom bars of your MegaWarrior rooftop cargo basket # Y07080. My Yakima contact confirmed no adapters or additional parts are required to get you 'made in the shade' on your next camping outing. So, in effect you have three mounting point options, driver-side, passenger-side or rear of vehicle. Of course, the SlimShady can also mount to virtually...

  • Yakima Slimshady Awning Fit with Rhino-Rack Lower Profile Mounts
    The Mounting Kit for Rhino-Rack Foxwing Awnings - Square and Round Crossbars # RR31105 is simply the square or round bar u-bolt kit. The taller portion of the mount is actually a discontinued part and does not come in this kit. It sounds like you are looking for something like the Angled Down Mounting Brackets for Rhino-Rack Sunseeker Awning # RR32127 which haven't been tested with the Slimshady awning # Y07409 so I can't confirm the fit.

  • Awning and Screen Room for 6 x 8-foot Runaway RangeRunner Compact Trailer
    The 6 x 8-foot Runaway RangeRunner compact trailer has a fairly low exterior height so standard RV awnings that mount to the side of a trailer would be too low. If you were to install a roof rack on the trailer, such as the Swagman Roamer LT # S80510, you could then use a vehicle awning such as the Yakima Slim Shady # Y07409 which will attach to the Roamer's square bars. Its very light 20-lb weight means little added stress to the Runaway's roof. It measures 6-1/2 x 6-1/2-feet. If...

  • Roof Rack for 2019 Toyota RAV4 Adventure With Raised Side Rails for Rooftop Tent and Awning
    We have exactly what you need to add a roof rack, rooftop tent and awning to your 2019 Toyota RAV4 Adventure with raised side rails, though the largest platform that fits your vehicle is the 60" Long x 49" Wide Rhino-Rack Pioneer SX Platform Rack # JA9133 and won't be what you need in order to use a roof top tent. What will work perfectly to give you everything you want starts with a roof rack from Yakima: - Yakima JetStream Crossbars # Y00425 (Black) OR # Y00428 (Silver) - TimberLine...

  • 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.

  • Awning Needed to Fit OEM Roof Rack on Subaru Baja
    All of the Rhino-Rack Awnings, like the Batwing Awning # RR33100 you referenced, require that the roof rack has T-Slots to install. I'm not sure what crossbars came on a Subaru Baja but I'm pretty sure that they didn't have the newer style T-Slot so if you are wanting to utilize your current roof rack you need to go with the Yakima SlimShady # Y07409 as it is the only option that clamps around the roof rack crossbars. Just note that the crossbar spread (center of front to center of rear)...

  • Will The Yakima Slim Shady fit on RockyMounts 14er Cargo Basket?
    The Yakima Slim Shady awning part # Y07409 is designed to attach to the accessory bar of the Yakima Load Warrior. Since the Rocky Mounts 14er basket part # RKY1054 is not built with a vertical accessory bar option the awning cannot properly attach to the basket. It needs two vertical attachment points. The Loadwarrior part # Y07070-74 or part # Y07080-82 allows you to attach the Slim Shady awning because they have the extra load bar to adjust for the minimum crossbar spread of 24 inches.

  • Vehicle Awning That Mounts to Yakima Crossbars Without Top Channel
    The Batwing Awning for # RR33100 or # RR33200 will not mount to Yakima crossbars unless they have a top channel. Instead, you need the Yakima SlimShady Roll-Out Awning # Y07409, which will clamp to aero crossbars so long as the crossbar spread is a minimum of 24".
