Recommended Awning for 2020 Mercedes-Benz Metris with Aftermarket Rails


Can you tell me which awnings are compatible with the rails on my Metris, the rails are aftermarket, I think made by or purchased from OMAC see attached photos. Ive been looking at the Rhino Rack, Thule or Yakima awnings, are there adapters for rail attachment or do I need crossbars and will they work with the rails that are on the car now.


Expert Reply:

You will need cross bars to go with your aftermarket rails, I recommend the Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars, # TH711500 and mount them with the Rapid Crossroad Feet for Thule Crossbars, # TH450R.

Once in place, you can use the Roof Rack Adapters for Thule HideAway Awnings, # TH490001 to mount the Thule HideAway Awning, # TH490008.

Please note the linked product review and installation videos below.
