When away on camping or hunting trips, an awning off your vehicle will provide shelter if it’s raining and shade if it’s hot and sunny. Bushranger 4 x 4 Gear offer a quick and easy to set up, roll out awning with telescopic locking arms and legs that is hard mounted to your vehicle. So, you can leave it on for the entire trip or as a permanent fixture without the need for storage at home.
The Bushranger Awning is designed to fit most roof racks and roof bar systems and even horse floats, camper trailers and caravans. The cover itself is made of 300 gsm Poly/Cotton Ripstop canvas with PU coatings for water resistance and it is UV stabilized and mould resistant. While all seams are stitched and offer welded seam tape, the arms and legs are made of anodised aluminium making them strong but light in weight. Once the awning is rolled out, simply secure the cover via its Velcro tabs and the job’s done. The Bushranger Awning itself is 2.5 meters x 2.5 meters and can be adjusted from 1.2 meters to 2.2 meters in height.
They come with a 1-year warranty and retail for approximately $325.00. Ask to see them at your local 4 x 4 outlet or visit
