The Smittybilt Trail Shade and awning pulls out and can be set in seconds while providing you enough sun protection to enjoy the sights. With a sleek and rugged design you can rest easy knowing this awning will withstand the elements. Rugged construction with light weight extruded aluminum backbone system and self contained telescopic twist-lock poles all contained in a heavy duty zippered PVC travel cover to protect your awning from getting beat down on while traveling to your destination. Available mesh room for additional protection from debris and insects, Part# 2597.
This is my first vehicle awning, and I have to say I'm very happy with it, especially for how reasonable the price is. I attached it to my Rhino Rack, and it is a great companion to the rooftop tent. Setting it up is a breeze with two people, and was challenging for one person, at first, but once I figured out my "strategy" for getting the legs and poles out in the right order, I can easily set it up alone. I guess this is a keeper, so I'm going to get the mesh room next!
Awning is great and easy to set up. Love the quality.
Very happy with this awning- good quality for the price and it came with hardware to mount it to many different types of racks.
E Z attachment, great construction and simple to use.
Q: How does this mount? Answer this question
A: The awning comes with exhaust clamps, steel L brackets, and bolts of varying lengths so the awning can be clamped to a roof rack. Smittybilt has videos on their awnings on YouTube.

The new Gen 2 Awnings have a very similar install to our retractable awnings. These also come with L-brackets and U-bolts. U-bolt install can be done on the roof rack rails (if tube shaped). L-bracket install usually required to mount bracket on 2 crossbars on roof rack (easy drilling often required on L-bracket install but not always). Below are the instructions for a retractable awning (very identical install process).
Thanks for checking us out.
