Awning to Roof Rack Brackets

Tough Touring manufactures 100% Australian made brackets specifically designed for the immense loads exerted by Poleless wing awnings.

At present, broadly speaking there four kits available to fit a Poleless Awning to virtually any type of rack. They are UP Mount,  and DOWN mount Brackets. Poleless wing awings can be hung directly onto Rhino Racks using our 'Awning to RHINO Pioneer '  and you can also mount Poleless Awnings to Basket Racks using our Awning to Basket Rack kit if your a professional Vehicle Fitter... (Pipe bar installations require Rivnut tools and a lot of skill to get right).

Please Note:

We would suggest consulting with your fitter before assuming your chosen tent, awning, rack/canopy will all work together!

Most Poleless awnings to Rack combinations for Dual Cab Utes are impossible to make work properly due to the majority of racks available for dual cab utes being too short (Rack must be over 175omm Long)

We now offer an under rack stiffening plank for some racks. (Rhino pioneer for example) its available on our shop page  - however please be aware that the Rhino rack in particular was not meant for poleless awnings, and fitting any of our gear is a modification that voids the rack manufacturers warranites. 


We manufacture strengthening brackets below that give people wanting to modify their rack to take these Awnings a big head start in their set ups. Please read the Instructions included on this page to check to see if you are in fact capable of performing these modifications yourself.  We manufacture components for professional fitters. 

Our brackets are pre-drilled to allow simple fitment of the following products:

"If your Rack is not suitable for use with a poleless awning or Hard Shell RTT. Bite the bullet and get one that is!! Everything is better when you do it right."

Tough Touring Dual cab Over Cab Roof racks are the perfect mounting platform for Poleless Wing awnings on vehicles that have shorter canopies and cabs.

Other awnings may be supported - mounting holes in brackets suit rear and front plate mount points from 80mm - 135mm). Please advise awning and rack type at the time of purchase, as they are all different.
