Wishing for an Omnistor 5200 US model


It's an Omnistor 4900 rebranded Hideaway for US. I like it and works good, however disappointed no corner strength gussets like 5200 and no center tension rafter either. Thule won't sell me the tension rafters separately to reinforce. Thule wants to sell me the whole sunshade setup. I just want the rafters for rigidity. Please Thule make the rafters a spare part.

Fantastic Awning and Super Easy Install


Honestly, I do not know what I like better - the actual awning or how easy it is to install. Thule nailed it! I have this setup on my Tundra using Thule's 500XT racks. It was a solo install and couldn't have been easier. Once the adapters are placed as needed - it literally drops right into place. No issues, super easy and fast. The awning size is very generous and perfect for the ultimate car camping and/or overland experience. I have it set up alongside my RTT and it's perfect. Again, I strongly feel Thule nailed it with this awning. Great job!
