Awning to Tent Kits
Tough Touring manufactures bracket kits to fit poleless awnings directly to hardshell rooftop tents
Poleless Awnings (or 270 degree swing out awnings) exert an immense load on the rear pivot point of the mount - so we designed lightweight but strong brackets to allow you to mount the awnings at the right height (just above your head) - on most vehicles, 1950mm is a good height for awnings, just above the Vehicle's rack and about halfway up the base of a roof tent.
If you try to mount the awning using traditional awning brackets you will discover that the awning brackets 'hang out' too far from the edge of the rack (no stability or strength) and adding the 'l' brackets to the rack means the tent no longer fits flush (so you have to start adding height to the tent). By the time your tent is installed along with your awning you then realize that the rack is quite redundant, and heavy.)
Tough Touring brackets are a light, cost-saving way to mount your awning straight to the side of the tent. In many cases removing the need for a rack altogether.
Tough Touring manufactured brackets will typically provide a stiff rigid mount point for poleless awnings by Ostrich, Darche, 30 Second, Quick Pitch, Bundutec, Howling Moon, Alu-Cab, Rhino Bat Wing, Supa Peg and many others.
