SlimShady Awning

Lightweight Roof Mounted Awning
SKU: #8007409
Made for the shade, our new awning delivers excellent protection from searing sun and sudden showers. It mounts quickly and easily to the side of your base rack and only takes up six inches of bar space so it won't crowd your kayaks, cargo boxes, or bikes. It's super easy to use - just pull it out window-shade style and insert the poles when you get to camp. The light, strong nylon canopy has a waterproof PU coating to shed rain and delivers 42 square feet of shady coverage on summer days. Universal mounting hardware fits most roof racks.

    Not compatible with Skyrise Tent

    Review by Natalie Posted on August 6, 2018

    We bought this to use on a week long trip to WV, coupled with the Yakima SkyRise tent. I'm sure glad we picked this up, as it rained the entire week we were there. The awning did a great job of providing cover from light rain (as opposed to heavy, coming down sideways rain... which probably would more

    sweet slim shady!

    Review by jwwt75 Posted on May 23, 2017

    We just got our long waited Slim Shady! easy to install, easy to deploy. everything is well built and very operator friendly. My wife was able to set up the shade by herself with no instruction in 5 minutes first try.
    we cannot wait to start camping this year.
