We have developed a system that stops annoying wind flapping. Most roof tents have a rain-fly which will flap with wind over 5 knots. Our rain-fly is attached to the tent body using adjustable velcro tabs – in addition to this we’ve added rain-fly wings which stop the flapping and provide extra privacy. These can be rolled up if not required. Extra fly tension spring poles giving you the option of 2 or 4.
Over the ladder cover
We have added an adjustable pole to tension the tent and provide support in heavy rain/wind/snow. In fine weather, it can be used instead of the guy ropes. Our roof has curved bows which provide weather resistance unlike flat roof tents.
Tent Base – Thermoplastic Honeycomb Base
Our tent base is incredibly strong – we use a thermo-plastic honeycomb base which has memory allowing flex and is a more durable material than any other on the market today. It is by far a superior base to aluminium honeycomb and standard sandwich bases.
The plastic base panel will take a whopping 1 tonne. The base is also a great insulator – it not only keeps you warmer in winter and cooler in summer but reduces the moisture build up inside the tent.
It’s fully resistant to denting and scratching, and you’d need to be incredibly rough to damage it.
Extra Heavy Duty Travel Cover
Our travel covers are built to last and have fully welded seams which eliminate stitching tear. Velcro closing on the travel cover with no zips to jam or break.
Folding Ladder Cover Pole
For easy and convenient unfolding and pack down, we’ve added a permanent folding ladder pole that simply folds out in one easy motion meaning assembly and pack down are extremely fast.
Huge Panoramic Side Windows (1.6m x 60cm)
Huge panoramic windows in our tents not only provide a fantastic view and great ventilation, but eliminate the need for sunroofs or sky windows which are prone to leaking.
Simply relax and enjoy the stars knowing that if the weather turns bad, it’s quick and easy to close the window panel. Our side windows feature a roll-up awning to allow a better view or use with the spring poles to get privacy and weather protection.
