Universal 'Up Down' Awning Tough Touring Bracket Kits

Universal Kit (Up Down)
Price: $300 + Shipping

These racks are specifically designed to be reversable and mountable above the rack (Up Mount) or below the rack (Down Mount). These bracket kits work well on a huge range of surfaces and vehicles. 

We fit them to: 

  • Pipe bar / roll bars and cages

  • Flat / touring / platform racks

  • Aluminium canopy tops

  • Coffee carts, vertical trailer bars


These racks have laser cut rivet and bolt holes positioned along the axis of the brackets. This allows flexability in finding mounting points with strength, regardless of the surface, and with variant inset brackets we provide - they will suit most trade racks as well.


They can be mounted 'Up' for extra height or 'Down' to lower the height of the awning. They are especially popular on the following vehicles:

  • Toyota Troopies / Troop carrier in the Down position with an alternate front bracket (As the full lenth troopie rack is 2.8m long! longer than any awning we know of) 

  • Toyota 200 Series / LC200 in the Up position to clear the rear spoiler - especially suited to ostrich wing awning and the bush company xt 270.

  • Jeep - Up position to get extra height (lower vehicle) 

  • Open Trays with pipe bars (79 series utes)

Universal 'Up' or 'Down' Mount Kit package contains expected bolts and rivets but you may need to source extra bolts of different lengths in some cases. 

Rear Tough Touring to Rhino Tradesman Ra
The Universal UP mount bracket above is used to lift the awning 'up' on stock LC200 to give the overall clearance height of 6'2 under the awning. 
Adding the UP mount also allows the swing out arm of the awning to clear the rear door and wind spoiler on this vehicle type. Click here for more LC200 info.

Universal Awning mount Bracket - mounted in 'UP' Position. Suits flat racks especially well where more height is needed.

To see if this bracket is right for your vehicle - firstly find the tallest person you camp with and have them stand them beside your vehicle, taking care to measure them up against the roof rack height on your truck. Poleless wing awings will pivot out from the rear edge of the rack at 90 degrees right from the bottom edge of the mount point. If your rack is 5'10 off the ground - but your 6'2, you're going to need an UP mount. (and a bigger garage :)!
