Will Sunseeker Awning Fit on Aero-Style Bars with Rhino Rack Xtray Installed on 2016 Grand Cherokee


I have a 2016 Grand Cherokee with the Rhinorack RSP27 Aerobars and a large rhinorack Xtray installed. Will the sunseeker awning install like normal onto the cross bars, or do I need to adapt it to fit around the roof basket? thanks.

Since the Rhino-Rack RVP Roof Rack for Fixed Mounting Points # RRRVP27 will be used up completely by the XTray # RRRMCB03 on your 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee I don't think that you will be able to get the awning to fit.

I reached out to my contact at Rhino-Rack to see if the Sunseeker Awning # RR32133 would be compatible with your specific rails and he said that you would need to use the Angled Up Mounting Brackets # RR32123 for your application. Since these stick out a bit you may be able to get them to fit under the basket but if the outer bars of the basket cover the end of the crossbar I don't think they will fit together and it would be better for you to go with a smaller basket like the Steel Cargo Basket # RMCB which is only 35" wide.
