Tried these out over the weekend...
They were amazing! Very sturdy, easy to assemble, super comfortable and a great size! Definitely recommended.
I have camped using a swag on the ground for the last 30 years using a number of different stretchers, self inflating mattresses by far the king goanna stretcher is the most comfortable bed I have used .I weigh around 110kg and the stretcher is very sturdy . I highly recommend the comfort and ease of assembly
One of my first purchases from Snowys several years ago. It's still going strong. Not only is it more comfortable than sleeping on the ground, it also means there is more storage underneath to free up room in the tent (leaves room for the dog to sleep :)
A lot better than just a seat on the ground.
Easy to set up, very comfortable and heaps of room.
Got sick of repairing lilos, so, with some trepidation, bought the stretcher from Snowy’s. Have been sleeping comfortably since. Great stretcher & Snowy’s are great and efficient to deal with.
My first purchase from Snowy's and was impressed with the quick delivery and after sales customer care. The product itself was exactly as described - it was a little difficult to put final clamp down but it said it would be stiffer to start with as its brand new. It is sturdy and even though we have not actually used it yet, up until now I'm very happy with my purchase. April school holidays will be its 'maiden voyage'.. 👍😊
Sturdy and solid design. Easy assembly/pack-up.
If you have broad sholders, gose well with denali royal so you don't bang your arms on side bars.
I run this with with the Oztrail Leisure Mat King Single and it is a great combination. I am 6'4 and pushing the 130kg mark and felt nothing but stable. Easy setup and packup, I wish the kids bunks were as easy :)
will be using over Easter ,looks good . Great service and arrived fast .
Hi there, Would these be ok in a Black Wolf 450 without additional protection under the legs? Won't damage the floor? Many thanks
Provided that you've got a nice clear camping space, free to twigs, stones etc. then I can't see any reason why you'd need to worry about the feet of the Oztent King Goanna Stretcher doing damage to the floor of your tent. If you did have a bit of a rough ground though, then I'd probably recommend a ground sheet for your tent.
What air mattress would you suggest be the best fit for this stretcher
As long as the mat is under 210cm long and 80cm wide then it will fit nicely on top of the King Goanna stretcher.
There are heaps of different options available in our range, so if you want some help narrowing it down to what's going to suit you, it might be best getting on the blower and giving our customer support team a call on 1300 914 007.
Is there much ventilation through the fabric or is the padding very thick/ impassable for ventilation?
The fabric on the Oztent King Goanna Stretcher isn't removable so any washing would need to be by lightly sponging spot stains etc. The padding is designed to improve the insulation value of the stretcher so won't allow much, if any ventilation through the fabric.
What width self inflating mat will fit the best on this stretcher?
The King Goanna Stretcher is a nice solid, wide stretcher. Any self-inflating mat that's less than 80cm wide will fit on it perfectly. Once you start getting over the 80cm mark, you're going to start hanging over the edge and that's probably not going to be ideal. Most of our single self-inflating mats will suit your needs, so feel free to go for the one you find most comfortable to lie on.
We have noticed in store that the King Goanna Stretcher has some longways movement. Have you had any experience with the Black Wolf turbo bed which appears to have a different setup of legs underneath which look like they may address this issue.
We haven't stocked the Black Wolf Turbo Bed so there isn't much feedback I can offer - sorry. It appears according to Black Wolf's website that it's a discontinued product.
If your concern is over stability, can I recommend the Oztrail Easy Fold Stretcher available here (also available in Jumbo and Queen sizing). The Easy Fold Stretcher uses body weight on the stretcher to stabilise its movement. On top of this, the stretcher is one complete piece making set up and pack down really easy. It's by far our most popular stretcher.
So I need a stretcher to suit, if you have anything.
We're not familiar with a Kings Horizon double as it's not a brand that we stock, but I can tell you that the biggest stretchers we have are the Zempire Twin Speedy Stretcher Bed which is 193L x 132W x 47H cm, and the Oztrail Easy Fold Queen Stretcher which is 200L x 144W x 42H cm.
Those may suit, but I would suggest cracking out a tape measure or looking for the details on the packaging of your swag, as that will help narrow it down.
I have a swag bought from your company.
The King Goanna Stretcher is 80cm wide, so it's definitely not going to fit a double-sized swag. It may fit a king single, but it's really going to depend on the model. I'd suggest having a look at the specs of your swag on our website, and comparing it to this stretcher to see if it's a good fit.
A popular stretcher that goes well with a swag is the Outdoor Connection Sundowner Titan Camp Stretcher, as it's extra wide and long - which makes a great combo with a swag!
How much gap would there be in the middle if you were to join two stretchers together to make a double/queen?
I've just had a look at our display King Goanna Stretcher, and the ends of the pole on either end of the stretcher do stick out 8cm (which you can get an idea of in the second image linked on the product page).
If you were to put two together there would be a significant gap of about 16cm, so they're probably not the best model to do this with.
Hi, do these have any storage pockets attached to hold phone/torch/keys etc?
There are no storage pockets or pouches of any kind on this stretcher, it sounds like it would be a good idea though!
will two of these fit in one end of the black wolf turbo twin 300? would therese be better then a darche mattress? i'm debating on these vs the darche mattress or darche mattress on top of these?!?!
From comparing the dimensions of the tow, it seems that you could fit two King Goanna stretchers in the Turbo Twin 300- but you’d have to fit it in across each room rather than lengthways, because of the slope of the rooms.
And as for the mat vs stretcher decision, mats provide cushioning and insulation, whereas the stretcher gives you height which some people find more comfortable as it’s more like sleeping on a bed at home.
If you’d rather save on the space, and you’re not bothered by sleeping low to the ground then a mat on its own would be fine.
But if you prefer to sleep off the ground then a combo of the two may be the best option – it all comes down to personal preference really.
Hi, does this stretcher fit front to back in a RV3 tent or would you recommend another stretcher?
G’day Mias, the King Goanna stretcher is 210cm long and 80cm wide, and the floor dimensions of the RV3 are 2m long and 2.4m wide so you wouldn’t be able to use it front to back. If you were to use this stretcher from side to side you would be able to fit it in the RV3 but the slope at the back of the tent may make it feel cramped. The Gecko Stretcher from Oztent (Snowys code:39538) is a little bit smaller at 190cm long so it will just squeeze in front to back in the tent - it’s also at a lower height which will accommodate the slope of the RV3 a bit better.
G’day Noel, I’ve just examined the King Goanna Stretcher in store, and it has plastic coverings on the end of each legs which will prevent any punctures on any tent floor. In general Oztent use heavy duty PVC for their floors (RV and Jet Tent ranges) which is a durable material - so you will not damage the floor of the tent if you use the King Goanna Strecher in your tent.
Currently tossing up between an RV5, an F25 and a 2.4 Black Wolf Turbo.
Hi Russ, you’ll fit two King Goanna stretchers in all of these tents, we’ve tried them all in-store…the main consideration here is liveability. The Black Wolf Turbo 240 and Oztent Jet Tent F25 are similar in their configuration with the Jet Tent offering more space. The Oztent RV5 is a different beast in that it only really has standing space at the doorway, but offers more benefits if you would like to add extra rooms or attach it to a 4WD awning. Our recommendation is that for families the configuration on the Turbo or Jet Tent are preferable, whilst touring couples may prefer the simplicity and speed of the Oztent RV Tents.
Can a King goanna stretcher can fit in an oztent rv5 (if I order two or three) thanks tim
Hi Tim, you can fit 2 x King Goanna Stretchers into the RV5 I recommend running them from side-to-side in the tent. If they run front-to-back you will find the stretcher just touches the back wall of the tent. The Gecko Stretcher will avoid this (it's shorter.) If you really want to fit 3 stretchers side by side then the Goanna Stretcher is the way to go.
Hi Snowy's we use two Black Wolf Mega Deluxe Sleeping mats which Velcro together and are super comfy. However I would like to be off the ground (getting too old!) could we have two King Goanna Stretchers with the mats on the top?? Our tent is Black Wolf 300 Lite and we use the screen room most trips.
how high are these once assembled?
I have recently purchase 2 of these and have noticed a fair bit of movement length ways in the stretcher ie movement in the legs - is this normal? They have been set up correctly also, thanks.
Hi can you get good night's sleep without adding any matress I am 105kg 6ft tall thank you
Does this stretcher easy to erect? Does it fold down into itself without having to detach the top skin?
I have used stretchers that require a fair amount of effort to put the end bar on - are these like that? Could a child put it up? Dodgy back so looking for something quick and easy to put together without using force/too much bending!! Thanks
How best to pack away the goanna stretcher?Seems too bulky the way we're doing it Thanks.
Hi can you tell me what stretcher i need to buy for my husband who is thinking of putting his swag on top for sleeping. Would it be a king goanna or something else
Will they roll into each other ? Is there a bar down the middle of the stretcher ?
