AX27 Clamshell Roof Top Tent – Overview

The AX27 Clamshell Rooftop Tent is the ultimate camping solution that will exceed your expectations, thanks to The Bush Company’s extensive experience in aluminium fabrication and touring/camping.

The robust clamshell design is super fast to set up/pack down and provides a roomy internal space for easy access and maximum comfort, making it perfect for a luxurious camping experience.

Made from top-quality materials that can endure the toughest of weather conditions, the AX27 Clamshell Rooftop Tent will offer you an unforgettable camping time that will leave you feeling confident that you have made the right choice.

This product features a fully seam welded lightweight alloy frame with a high quality powder coated finish. The 2m long cargo rails are welded to the top of the roof, making it easy to attach accessories or the optional roof load bars. The internally reinforced roof is load rated to 200Kg when closed, or 50kg when open.

The tent body is made of two layers of 310g polyester rip stop acrylic infused mould and mildew resistant canvas. A large canvas removable rainfly is located at the rear and sides of the tent with heavy duty 8mm spring steel poles and adjustable storm straps for heavier wind conditions.

There is an air vent above the rear entrance with midge mesh and zipped canvas flap on the inside. Additionally, the base and top frame feature ‘Ezi-Slots’ that provide an easy attachment of accessories such as awnings, hi-lift jacks, light bars etc. Finally, the tent has three entry points; rear, left and right sides all with YKK zippers and external canvas storm door with high quality midge mesh and internal canvas door.

Sleeping and Storage

You’re in for a treat with the AX27 – an effortlessly spacious rooftop tent that holds all the comforts of home, and then some. With three sizeable windows/doors, all with double canvas doors and midge mesh, natural light and ventilation are in ample supply.

The mattress, layered with medium and super density foam that’s a plush 80mm/3.15″ deep, is topped with a removable canvas cover for easy care. And the tent’s interior? Wide enough to accommodate two sleepers with additional room to spare – so feel free to bring all the bedding and extras your heart desires.

With the AX27, storage won’t be an issue: storage pouches and pockets are abundant, accompanied by thoughtful touches like water bottle holders. Camping just got a serious upgrade thanks to the AX27.

Accessories and Electrics

With our top-of-the-line tent, you can take on any adventure with confidence. Load up your gear, from surfboards to kayaks, on the roof of the tent without worry.

Whether you’re off the grid for days or just need a quick power boost, mount solar panels to the roof and keep all your devices charged with the multiple power sockets and USB ports inside the tent. The tent’s power connection is easy to access, thanks to the 50amp anderson plug on the underside of the tent base. And don’t forget the tr-colour rechargeable LED light that can be positioned anywhere on the roof for optimal lighting.

With the optional fan mount bracket, you can even add a 12V Scirocco fan to enhance your comfort. The tent’s accessory brackets make it easy to carry shovels, hi-lift jacks, and lightbar/spot light brackets, ensuring you’re always equipped for your next adventure.

Rooftop Tent Care and Maintenance

We recommend that new tents are thoroughly wet down on the outside before first use. This will ensure that your  tent performs well in wet weather by allowing the poly/cotton corespun thread and canvas to swell ensuring the take up of any potential leaks in the stitching.

Cleaning Canvas:
– Do not use soap or detergents on the canvas.
– Do not store the product if wet, allow drying first.
– To clean use a soft brush and cold water.
– Do not expose to petrol, oils or harsh chemicals.

Cleaning mould:
– Allow mould to dry
– Remove surface mould off with stiff bristle brush
– Vacuum the area
– Treat area with Oil of Clove spray (diluted spray can be purchased or can be mixed using a few drops of oil into a spray bottle of water)

Condensation is a natural occurrence in cold weather. In confined areas like tents the body releases more moisture than the canvas can dispose of. To help to reduce condensation build up, we recommend keeping some of the windows open on the tent to enable airflow on cold nights. If you are not using your tent for an extended period of time (more than 10 days) we recommend opening the tent regularly to allow it to air out, and possibly even remove the mattress and store it separately until your next trip.

If you have elected to sign for your items (required for all tents and awnings) When the shipment arrives, it is essential that you check it thoroughly for any signs of damage before signing to accept the shipment.  This means checking the exterior box and if there are any signs of damage externally then the box should be opened, and the product examined for any signs of damage to the product itself.  This needs to be done before you sign anything to say that the item has been received, the driver needs to wait until you are satisfied.  If you are not satisfied with the condition of the item, then you are entitled to refuse delivery and the courier will have to return the product to us.
