SlimShady Awning

Lightweight Roof Mounted Awning
SKU: #8007409
$299.00
 
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.

    A good awning

    Review by Farkle Posted on September 29, 2019

    I've had this awning mounted to my E250 van for a while and have used it quite a few times. Overall I've been psyched on the performance. Pretty easy set up and tear down, and it's stood the test of time. In the beginning when I first got it, one of the poles that drop down from it and go to the gro...read more

    Pretty Sad

    Review by Tomas Posted on July 17, 2019

    over all it does the job as far as the shading goes..., but it is more like a cheap awning and definitely not 300 worth!!!

    Pros
    - It does provide a shade

    Cons
    - The mounting brackets have a key lock. Nice? Well.... Some one can come with a wrench and take ...read more

    Works great with Skyrise.

    Review by Brandon Posted on July 16, 2019

    The reviews that say this awning is not compatible with the Skyrise tent are completely wrong. I use my awning along with my tent all the time. You simply have to mount the awning a few inches away from the tent so that there is room for the rain fly poles to mount to the tent. It is a complete n...read more

    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 ...read more

    The aluminum mount rail came bent.

    Review by Savage.Outback Posted on November 20, 2017

    The awning is great for precipitation cover, but It's not the most efficient awning for blocking the sun. You would have the angle it away from the sun to get shade, but the sun is consistently moving.

    Installation was pretty simple and easy, but since my awning came damaged, I had t...read more

    Great product!

    Review by Tyler Posted on August 16, 2017

    The mounting system alone makes this product a game changer in the awning world. I have a van, so I will probably end up switching to a gutter mount bracket, but for most vehicles without a gutter, the universal rack attachment is brilliant. Super easy to install, and secure with SKS locks.

    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.
