The 270 XT Awning™ sets new benchmarks for a free-standing shade awning in terms of overall strength, wind resistance, and durability. The awning is 90.5 inches long (2.3m) when packed up, weighs only 61.2 lbs (27.8Kg), and can be easily fixed to a roof rack or load bars using the heavy duty L brackets (2 supplied with the awning) , or to our Clamshell Roof Top Tents using the appropriate tent to awning bracket . The 270 XT Awning™ provides an incredible 86 sqft (8sqm) of shade around your 4WD for you to set up your camp kitchen, swags, or just a shaded seating/chill-out area. As you can see from the video, the awning can easily be set up by one person in about 30 seconds, and the pack down is just as simple.
Around the inside edge of the awning is a 2-inch (50mm) thick velcro strip, which can be used to attach the optional awning walls enabling you to fully enclose the area to provide protection from the elements or additional privacy.
The awning is available in either a Left Hand Side (driver’s side in USA) or Right Hand Side (passenger side in USA) configuration, and please select which version you require from the drop-down menu below.
Fitting the 270 XT Awning™
The 270 XT™ Awning requires 2 Heavy Duty L brackets, and the first bracket is attached to the stainless steel section no more than 200mm (7 ⁷/₈inch) from the hinged end. The second bracket must be mounted no less than 1.3m (4′ 3″) from the bracket at the hinged end.
To mount the awning to one of our rooftop tents, you will need an Awning To Tent bracket, which is sold separately.
