You don't have to restrict using an Oztent Pole to just your Oztent RV, these upright Alloy poles can be used for any camping shelter application... well at least any application where there is an eyelet to place over the spigot.
Made of durable and lightweight alloy, the Oztent Alloy Pole is available in two sizes and features a rounded rubberised foot that is friendly on groundsheets and tent floors.
The locking mechanism has a smooth and positive action and the spigot atop the pole suits most standard eyelets and ridge or spreader poles.
I have had a RV3 tent for several years and have to agree with Lisa that the OZ tent poles are not up to the quality of the tent. They often tend to stick and require some effort and fiddling to fix. I’m sure oz tent could develop something better to complement what I think is the best tent on the market.
We bought an oztent RV3 recently from Snowys and are generally really happy with it. The one problem with it is the poles that hold up the awning at the front. These feel cheap and the mechanism for holding the extended pole in place is flimsy and slips easily. It is by far the most stressful part of our set up process and we have had to resort to using gaffer tape to hold the pole in place once up. Such a shame that a great tent is let down by these poor quality poles.
I'm sorry to hear that your new alloy poles haven't quite lived up to expectation. We've been selling these alloy poles for yonks now and haven't ever received much feedback - so thank you for (hopefully) getting the convo started.
In the years we've stocked these poles, we've sold stacks and overall been very happy with them. Is there a chance that something has gone pear-shaped with the locking mechanism? If so, have you purchased these poles within 12 months for a warranty? If you have a second, please let us know in an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) - we'd like to do what we can to help out.

While the product seem OK, I was disappointed with the pricing. I ordered the longer 2.2m poles and was charged the listed price at the time. When I receive the parts the sticker price on the packaging was $5 less than what I was charged, a total difference of $10 as I ordered 2 poles. I checked back online in case the price had moved, it hadn't, the price I paid was the advertised price online. This lead me to conclude that there is a different pricing structure for in store purchases and the advertised free delivery is not free! I would be interested in reading a response from Snowy's. Have I got it wrong? I am being unreasonable or too harsh? Or, was this just an honest mistake and in the thousands of products you stock there happened to be a small discrepancy in the pricing with this product?
Thanks for bringing this to our attention - you're right, we've made a mistake here.
We aim to have the same low price for every product, whether you're shopping online or instore. It looks as though the Oztent Alloy Poles have somehow slipped through - so we've quickly updated the online price to be the same as instore.
If you have a sec, please give us a call on 1300 914 007 - we'd like to refund the price difference.. plus we'd like to reward you for letting us know.
Cheers, Laine :)
Hi, Our center awning pole on the canvas Black Wolf tent has given in to the elements - can this one be used instead?
You'll have no worries using the Oztent Alloy Pole for your Black Wolf Turbo 300. I'd suggest you just use the 220cm option.
Hi, do you sell the 2 x 1.9m + 1 x 2.6m spreader bar with guy ropes in a kit? If not, how can I buy the guy ropes as I can see that I can buy the poles individually but can't find he guys. Thanks in advance!
Unfortunately, we don't sell these as complete packs, no. You can grab some guy ropes here though, which should help complete the set!
Hello - doe the poles come in pack's of 2 or singularly?
The Oztent Alloy Pole is sold individually.
Is the guy rope included, as per your answer in the cot-tent guery, pls?
As per your previous question - The Easy Fold Stretcher tent from Oztrail comes with three guy ropes, one at the back, and two at the front.
Can I ask what is the the diameter of the front (pin) part of the pole? Thanks.
I've just measured one for you downstairs, and I've found that the diameter of the spigot on the Oztent Alloy Pole is 5mm, and the length of the spigot is 4.5cm.
Would this pole suit the eyelets of the Oztrail hiking fly?
I've just measured for you and the 190cm Alloy pole is 112cm long (including tip) and the 220cm Alloy Pole is 122cm long (including tip) when not extended.
And as for the suitability of these poles with your fly - these poles can be used with the eyelets on the Oztrail Hiking Fly.
Hello, with reference to my order do the poles come in a bag with ropes? My original oztent poles did? thanks Noel
