5.0 T.i.t.s!!

This Smittybilt awning is t.i.t.s! It has kept me dry, withstood hurricane winds, and is super easy to set up/take down.

5.0 It’s worth it

Where to begin this smittybilt awning is the best bang for your buck if you want an awning for your ride. A definite recommendation for any one looking for an awning.

5.0 Does what it is supposed to do, very well.

For the money you cannot beat it, haven’t tried any other awnings but this thing works great. Used it 12 nights in a row on an over landing trip, it held up to rain, snow and had some seriously High-winds in the desert but you just have to tie it down and angle it and it works fine. I would absolutely recommend.

Q: Is all needed hardware included to mount on vehicle’s roof rack.. Answer this question

A: Yes and no. It does come with a fairly large amount of mounting hardware that will work with about any roof rack. But there is always a chance that it might not cover your application.

A: Yes.  Included everything.

Answered by Josh from NM on 09/11/2021

A: Yes!  However if you have a strange roof rack you may need to tweet the supplied brackets. I put mine on to Ford Transit Van with a ladder rack. I need to slightly bend a couple brackets but easy to do.

Answered by moto from Ca on 03/05/2021

A: Hello Sydashment, Should be able to install either on side rails or on crossbars, install guide linked. Please refer to install guide, page 3, that style install (on side rails) shouldn't require any drilling. Or you can install on crossbars and drill a couple holes (or find a unique way that also doesn't require to drill into crossbar).

Q: I have a 2013 Nissan Pathfinder with stock roof rails, aftermarket cross bars and a cargo roof rack.  Will this mount to something like this?  Answer this question

A: It comes with a ton of mounting options. I personally went to Home Depot and got some L brackets tho. Super easy install.  

Answered by Anonymous from Las Vegas on 11/17/2020

A: Hello Pathfinder guy, It will most likely fit your Pathfinder. The Smittybilt Retractable Awning part number S/B2784 is designed to fit applications where the surface to mount is at most 8.2 feet long (8'2.6"), and at least somewhere around 6ft. It comes with L-Brackets and U-Bolt type brackets where you can use both together or a special configuration. Additionally/alternatively you can also use specialty aftermarket brackets (these mostly depend on the roof rack you already have). The brackets install to the awning through channels, making it very adjustable to your mounting needs. Thanks for checking us out, we appreciate your business.
