*NEW* GEN 3.1 EXPEDITION TENT
When rooftop tents first hit the market they were revolutionary, mostly because your tent and mattress (the two things that take up the most packing space) were now conveniently stored on your roof. Of course, there are many more benefits to owning a rooftop tent, but likewise, there are plenty of cons, too.
Fortunately, most of these drawbacks are associated with soft-shell rooftop tents, as well as heavy canvas units that are difficult to flip open. For these reasons, our Expedition Tent has always followed a hard-shell design. The benefits of this setup include…
- A gas-strut assisted design that takes seconds to open and close
- A three-point entry / exit layout so you don’t have to plan your campsite around your tent
- A more aerodynamic shape
- You can close the tent with your bedding inside, and lastly…
- Our Expedition Tent has always followed a hard-shell design.
But most of all, from an overland-travel perspective (where you’re moving from one camp to the next), you just can’t beat the convenience of a pop-up rooftop tent; which is why our ever-popular Expedition Tent is now in its 3rd Generation design.
Over the years, we’ve been adding continuous improvements to our Expedition Tent, opting for a wider, more spacious layout, as well as a streamlined design that’s both aesthetically pleasing, and far more aerodynamic.
But even more so, three critical features have always been important to us while developing our hard-shell tent:
1) Comfort and convenience
Buying a rooftop tent is no different to buying a household bed, where comfort is critical; which is why we’ve specced our Expedition Tent with a generous 75 mm high-density foam mattress. We’ve also included a reading light, USB charging ports (for your mobile phone), a 12V power socket, and a series of storage pockets where you can keep your keys, books and even your shoes.
Thanks to the Expedition Tent’s robust aluminium housing, you have the option of fitting our Alu-Cab load bars. This means you can still pack large bulky items on top of your tent. Whether it be a solar panel, camping table, kayak, mountain bike, or our very own Rack Tray, the Gen 3.1 Expedition Tent doesn’t prevent you from packing gear on your roof as other rooftop tents do.
Recognising that our tents are used by extreme adventure travellers across the globe, we wanted to build a tent that offered the best possible insulation against blazing African heat, as well as sub-zero temperatures found in Europe and North America. That said, the Gen 3.1 roof structure and base are generously insulated with a closed-cell foam lining that offers excellent comfort and insulation all year round. We’ve also included an awning cover over the tent’s rear door, which helps to keep rain, snow and frost off the rear opening.
TIME FOR AN UPGRADE
If you’re looking to upgrade your current rooftop tent with a far more durable, versatile and easy-to-use option, look no further than our Gen 3.1 Expedition Tent – a third-generation product that has evolved into a supremely comfortable, spacious, and fast-pitching home away from home.
