The Bush Company XT Awning
The Bush company released its XT awning early in 2020 - and they've done it their way with a different approach, fully trussed, powder coated stainless steel arms at 2.2m give this awning the most ridgidity of all the awnings tested. The canvas cover is of exceptional quality and the finish quality overall has to be described as 'perfect'.
The Intelligent design of bushed pivots and canvas bag (black) make this awning the highest quality fully functioning awning we've used. Its 2.2m arm length is a little smaller than most of the competition - but we welcome the smaller size here as seemingly no wind will budge it.
This awning is a perfect match for the Bush Company rooftop tents (Apha and Black Series 2020) also - with rebates for fitting the awning already incorporated into the tent extrustions. Just slot in the bolts and fit the awning.
The Bush Company awning is designed to be fitted straight up to the bush company tents. They make a tent to awning bracket kit that works perfectly.
While we have not seen the awning walls to suit this awning yet, they can be attached to the awning with velcro. There is no pitch pole on this awning - its top surface is quite flat - water run off is achieved by the trusses themselves being sloped slightly toward the ends. Poles are not included with this awning. so add those into your shopping list if you want to run walls in wind.
