The Bushbuck Armourdillo is the next generation in hard top tent technology. Unlike other traditional PVC soft top tents it is streamline, robust & allows you to accessorize & equip. It opens up a world of opportunity to explore and wake up in landscapes and views others could only dream of. Fall asleep under the stars with the Skylight or play games/read your book to the early hours with built in USB powered internal and external strip lighting. The Armourdillo really takes camping and adventures to the next level.

Our unique side opening clam shell system has a length of only 1.75m and a low profile height of 26cm when closed making the Armourdillo the shortest aluminium hard shell on the market, this means it can be attached to almost every vehicle with 2 crossbars unlike others that are 2m+ that require a SUV or ute canopy with 3 to 4 crossbars to attach.


Our universal mounting system allows your Armourdillo to be mounted quickly to any set of crossbars, similar to mounting bike rack or storage box.


The gas struts pop the tent up as soon as you are stationery and you can be comfortably resting inside your Armourdillo within minutes. We have located a pole pocket lined with tough PVC at the entrance of the tent to speed up putting the windows and door up. 


Made from ultra durable 3mm aluminium tread-plate, you can additionally add tracks/crossbars to the top of the hard-shell to carry bikes, solar panels, max-tracks, surfboards, kayaks, 4x4 equipment.. If you can dream up something to mount, it can probably be done...
