Don’t let its low-profile fool you: this awning packs small and delivers big. From sideline cheers to ridge line views, the SlimShady offers excellent protection from searing sun and sudden showers. It mounts quickly and easily (no tools needed!) to your roof rack crossbars, and only takes up six inches of bar space leaving plenty of room for cargo boxes, bikes, or boats. Super easy to use—just roll it out and set-up the poles—its light, strong polyester canopy has a waterproof PU coating to shed rain and serve up plenty of shady coverage on summer days. Available in three sizes, so you’re covered no matter how far, or near, your adventures take you.

      Great awning . . . But. . .

      I love my Slim Shady 8’ awning. Super easy to install and easy to setup. I do have some issues that I tried to address and receive support for. The three external straps are cinched with buckles that are very soft plastic. Right out of the box they were cinched so tight I had to really wrestle to get them to release. Because of this, they were deformed and already highly stressed. The center buckle snapped off after the second time using the awning and the remaining two are ready to break any time. I have since purchased replacement buckles from Amazon since I can’t get any help from Yakima. I also had one leg that was bent and couldn’t adjust to a height that was really usable. It cost me $60 plus shipping to PURCHASE a replacement because if I relied on trying to get a warranty replacement, I’d be waiting forever. Customer support is almost non-existent.

      I love Yakima products but I’m extremely disappointed in the support.
