Expedition Tent


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

We like to handle every order personally.

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.


2) Functionality

Thanks to the Expedition Tent’s robust aluminum 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 Expedition Tent doesn’t prevent you from packing gear on your roof like other rooftop tents do.


3) Insulation

Recognizing that our tents are used by extreme adventure travelers 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 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.
