Designed and manufactured in South Africa the Clamshell Roof Top Tent is a superb addition to any 4WD touring set up and presents a lower profile that standard roof top tents. Constructed primarily of aluminium with mild steel providing structural integrity, the tent has outside dimension of 225cm L 141cm W and 22cm H. The main body of the tent is heavy duty 400g ripstop canvas with YKK zippers on all entry points. Access to the tent can be from either side or to the rear using the collapsible ladder that locks in place and is stored inside the tent during transit. The gas struts on both sides of the tent allow for easy put-up and packed down by one person in under 1 minute. The tent has a fully waterproof and dustproof rubber seal when closed and there are two lockable catches on the rear edge.
There are storage pockets on the sides of the tent and storage pouches attached to the roof. The foam mattress in the tent is 75mm thick and has a zippered removable cover. When closed there is a 10cm gap inside the tent which means that bedding or other items can be stored inside the tent during transit. The rain fly on the upper part of the clamshell is held in place by removable spring steels and helps to prevent water ingress through the fly screen when it is raining.
There is a 3 year manufacturers warranty covering the structure, fittings and canvas.
Optional extras for the tent include:
- Aluminium Roof Runner Rails ($200).
- Interior 12V LED Light ($100).
