Looks like that's on the OEM Pro rack?

Did they have mounts for the tubes or did you have to put that together separately?

They sell it as an “accessory” if your awning doesn’t have one.Awning 12V LED Sail Track Light Strip And Dimmer Set

Get the 6. The 8 is way too wide for our trucks and looks wierd. But I guess if you have a family of 6 best get the big one

OEM TRD Pro Rack - ROAM provided no mount solution for tubular racks in kit.

I used Gzila 1.75 standard clamps. Finding the clamps are slipping a bit, so I may try BajaRacks TRD Pro clamps..seem to be engineered to prevent slipping.

I'd check out the Four Treks awning mounts. I used it for years and it never slipped. Comes in a variety of sizes

Thanks!

Googled those not long after posting the question. I have the Baja Maxxtrax mounts and they were really solid for 2 10 hour drives and 5 days of random off-roading in between. Never had to get them out, thankfully, cause the wingnuts were a pain in the ass to screw on and off.

Expensive for what you get, but they got the job done. Debating on getting the actual Maxxtrax pins, but cant get confirmation if they'll fit the Baja brackets, though for $69 I'll probably just YOLO it and see.

Agreed! The 6.5 looks like it was meant for the 4R. Here’s my Roam and it’s been excellent, even in windy conditions!

Have 6.5x6.5 frontrunner, will be going 8x8 Ironman at some point. 6.5 is too small in my opinion

Having spent time under both, 8x8 is always a better option unless you're single or have no friends.

You have to choose if you want a fashionable accessory that's too short or a functional one that works best imo.

I fit 2-3 of my no life friendless friends under my 6.5 perfectly. Nothing looks more ridiculous than an enormous awning sticking out of your roof. Almost as bad as these Lego shaped tree house RTT sticking up two feet in the air.....IMO

Who knew there was so much hate for 8' awnings.

IMO the 8' roam looks great on a prinsu. More importantly its functional and it covers the whole side of the truck. It performed great in a few torrential downpoors where I could access and leave both dirver side doors open without worrying about rain getting in. Will be buying the room as well soon!

Nice! I receive mine (8') this weekend and can't wait to put it on. I deliberated between 6.5 and 8 for a while as well but after seeing yours's installed, I'm glad I went with the 8'.I'll be mounting it on a Front Runner roof rack.

Is there much of a difference between the awnings when it comes to material, or are they pretty much the same? Right now I'm deciding between the ROAM and Ironman, with me leaning ROAM 8' right now. I'm hoping whatever I get holds up well to the weather since we'll be camping a lot with it.
