I wish I could, I will be at Overland Expo East in the Fall though. Headed to Flagstaff for Expo West in May and can’t commit to that and SCARR. I think Robert might be there though and he has some awning swag to show off 🙂

Do you have any that would fit a 90?

Thanks for the question. It only comes in the one size and it can be fitted to a 90, but it will extend about 27” from the front of the roof rack. It can handle a 39” cantilever mount from the front most mount point so that is well within spec.

The question is are you ok with the extension slightly coming into your top left or top right line of sight.

This looks great.

What sort of mounting hardware comes with it?

Thanks this is a great piece of kit. The hardware kit supplied with it consists of
1. 2 x T-brackets which are vertically mounted on a M8 channel found on the long edge of most roof racks.
2. Z-bracket to brace to the perpendicular edge of the roof rack at the rear mount point.
3. Leading arm support bracket (to mount on the opposite rear corner to support the leading arm when deployed
note: If mounting on a Front Runner rack or other bolted-style rack we strongly suggest purchasing a second bracing Z-bracket to mount at the front mount also to protect the rack

If using load bars with center bolt channels:
Heavy duty L-brackets are available at a nominal charge. In this case no bracing Z-brackets are needed.

If using a tubular rack/roll cage to mount there are a number of tubular clamp fabricators I can suggest.

what's the dimension when it's packed?
Also, any idea/suggestion how something like this could be mounted to a NAS SD basket? Thanks!

It is about 106” long and 7” tall packed.

Depending on the basket design (I have seen a few varieties of SD basket, not sure which you have) you can source a round bar clamp from Fourtreks.com, they carry a various diameter clamps for many tubing sizes and cater for most awnings and tents mounted to round bars. I will work with their owner to configure a specific one for the bolt holes configuration needed for this awning, if none of their stocked versions work.

If you can PM me some photos and dimensional measurements of your basket I can give you a more precise answer. In short, it should not be a problem, but let’s look at some specific details of your rack.

Thanks for the interest!

Theo

This awning is the coolest! Remarkably fast to set up & put away (seriously - like 60 seconds!). Big thanks to Theo for helping my wife surprise me & making sure it had everything to fit the Frontrunner rack.

Soo... after breaking another joint on the rhinorack batwing... how does this do in wind? Like 15-25mph at the beach wind?
Is there any way or need to tie it down or does it have a support leg?

My Hannibal did great but man is that thing beefy, almost too much.

Thinking about it for a non-LR build at the moment

Come to the MAR prep work weekend this week. Get a second weekend's use out of your awning in six months....

It has a support leg that is tucked up in my pic & loops for tie downs - both recommended in windy conditions.

Thatís good then, can some post pics of the joints where the arms attach?

And how thick the arms are (gauge
Of the aluminum would be helpful)

It comes with one telescopic arm that folds down as pictured, but two more can be added. Zipper is in place to connect sides & each arm has an aluminum end loop for tie downs, if conditions are windy.
I don't see a rating for gauge of aluminum in the instructions or on the web site.

I don't have the gauge of Al but they are sized to be strong enough while not too heavy. T6 6063 Aluminum is used for the arms. Manufacturer chose T6 6063 due to superior extrusion character and best of both worlds in corrosion/strength/weight. Same material is used for the main base extruded beam used to fit to the vehicle.

Main hinge bracket is 1050 high carbon steel.

It comes with one leg included, heavy duty tie-down eyes on all arms are included. You only need the extra 2 legs if you deploy a wall kit to handle the weight. The 2 additional legs are included in the wall kit.


I had the awning out in 30mph winds with gusts to 45mph during the Overland Expo West in Flagstaff. I would not recommend it, but it handled it well. I tied it down only on the last day (Sunday) as they forecast 50mph winds. Partly because I wanted to see how it handles it and partly because I was at an expo - and wanted to show off my product in the worst possible weather where people typically will no longer be camping. At 40mph the books are flying off the coffee table, empty coffee cups are blowing away and you are chasing lawn chairs now and again - so not having legs deployed and tied down makes little sense in that scenario.


Bottom line: as long as the wind is a moderate breeze or light wind you do not need the legs at all. 15-25mph not an issue. If the wind picks up or heavy gusts appear: deploy the legs and tie down if you must stay. If I knew heavy winds were coming I would simply pack it away. Never leave it deployed overnight or while going for a long hike away from your vehicle.
