A lightweight way to create shelter from the rain, shade or a wind break the Oztrail Camper Fly has a tonne of uses.
Made with durable and UV resistant UVTex fabric with a catenary or curved cut to ensure a tight and flap free pitch every time.
Three eyelets along the sides facilitate pole spigots and three webbing loops on each end so pitching options are aplenty.
haven't actually used it yet as I haven't been camping. I bought it as it was a good price
Bear in mind that everyone else thinks it's good, and I'm inexperienced. I set this up a couple of times in a park to test it, but got the impression it wouldn't handle wind and rain very well at all **when set up by a newbie working solo, with a dome/oval-shaped tent**. So I've never taken it camping.
For my purposes I wish I had bought tarps instead.
Great for the price. Only used once so far, with an Oztrail 450 as an awning. Worked great. Next time I will use shock cords or bungees for the 3 side guys as I was concerned that these would rip; it sees a bit of wind action and wants to lift up.
Love the setup Jo! Looks like a lovely day over there in Perth. Laine :)
Great fly, it didn't leak in heavy rain. Very spacious, tough and easy to use. I combined it with Black Wolf 450 cabin tent and it worked very well. Gets a bit hot under it.
I bought this fly for extended sea kayaking trips with friends. It works a treat!
on a recent trip all five of us cooked and cleaned under it due to inclement weather.
For the price its a great product.
I wanted a fly big enough to cover whole camper trailer. I have not yet used it but it would seem to fit the bill
Hi, I was told that this fly can only be used with poles that are used with tents as the eyelets are too small for standard poles you would use with a tarp set up. Is this true or can I confidently buy this fly and be sure it will fit my poles? Thanks
As long as the poles have a spigot/spike on the end then they'll be suitable for setting up the Camper Fly.
I have an Oztrail Tourer 450 Cabin. Ideally the eyelets would match up with the 3 at the front of the canopy so I would only require 3 additional poles. The dimension between each eyelet on the canopy is 1460mm. What is the dimension between the eyelets on the Fly?
The length of the Oztrail camper fly has three eyelets spaced approximately 140cm apart, that start approximately 145cm in from the edge (there are no eyelets on the corners instead there are guy ropes).
The width of the fly has a catenary (curved) edge with one eyelet in the middle which sits approximately 175cm in from the edge of the fly.
Great prompt response. I'll order one today. Thanks
Hi, we bought an 8 man coleman pop up tent and am just wondering if the height would allow us to place this over the entrance to the tent to give shelter when exiting? and also if we remove the middle pole to place over the top, would if still stay up?
The Oztrail Camper Fly does not come with the poles included, so if you were to get some that were the correct height then you could definitely use this fly to shelter the entrance of your Instant Up 8 Tent.
The Instant Up 8P from Coleman has a maximum height of 1.9m, so you would want poles that would extend up to that height and over like the 230cm size Alloy Pole Spigot from Poles Apart. As for stability – you can definitely pitch the Camper fly with four poles, but it will be a bit stabler with six.
The Oztrail Camper Fly does come in it's own bag, but it's made from the same type of material as a tent - so it's not particularly thick.
If you were keen on getting a slightly sturdier bag, the Oztrail Steel Pole Bag is very long so it's not going to be the best one (unless you'd like to store the fly + other gear in there). A much better fit is the Oztrail Dome Pole Bag as it's much shorter.
As for the poles, the Oztrail Galvanised Extension Pole 9' is a good option, or you could go for the Poles Apart T/Nut Pole if you wanted something a little sturdier. As long as the poles have a spigot/spike on the end then they'll be suitable for setting up the Camper Fly.
Hello Can you tell me the PU rating please?
G’day Mark, the Oztrail Camper Fly is made from polyester UVtex fabric, which has been given a 2000 waterhead rating by the brand. The Camper Fly doesn’t come with a specific rating, but I reckon we could take an educated guess and say that it would be the same as their other products made from the same fabric.
I recently purchased the above tent from you and am looking forward to using it on my first camping trip. But it's winter here in South West WA and that means rain. So I need a solution for exiting the tent door while it's raining, bearing in mind that the front door/awning needs to be zipped up for waterproofing. Would this fly work from length to length resting on top of the tent, leaving a couple of meters out the front as an awning - or in a different configuration? If not, what can you suggest as solution?
I have a 2-part question: 1. I'm wondering what the main differences/benefits are in getting a dedicated fly like this compared to using just a regular poly tarp with grommets, poles and guys? This would be for a kitchen/eating/social area. Is this water proof? 2. I have a turbo lite 300 tent (6+ metres long). Would this work as an extra fly over that? I would have to eliminate the centre pole as that is the tent entry.
Does this product come with all the poles and guy ropes? Thank you
Hi what is the size of the roof width before the drop down sides please? And what poles and ropes go with it? Thanks for your help 😄
