If you need a sturdy touring tent that’s a bit lighter and a bit more manageable, then the Oxley 5 Lite is the one for the job.
The Oxley 5 Lite is made from 210D Polyoxford PU 2000mm, which makes it the lighter and more affordable sibling of the Oxley Fast Frame Tents. The auto lock/release frame makes pitching the Oxley 5 Lite super simple and quick. All you need to do is pop the centre hub and lock it, pull the arms out to lock the frame into place, peg it out, and attach the fly.
For insect protection, the No-See-Um mesh screens will have you covered, and when you need some more airflow in the tent the large windows provide heaps of ventilation. The fly offers 100% water protection and will keep your tent cooler in warm weather and reduce condensation when the temperature drops.
And if you need some extra living space, you can relax under the cover of the extra-large awning on this tent. The Oxley 5 Lite from Oztent is perfect for small families or groups and provides a sturdy and easy to set up shelter in a lighter package.
Don’t let the cheap price fool you into this being your average Anaconda special. This tent is nothing but quality with no corner cut. It’s light but strong, compact pack but spacious tent, complex design for such a simple setup.
thanks Ben for your answer. Does this mean it would be wise to buy an additional post or two if we buy this tent?
I certainly think that it would be a good idea to grab a couple of extra poles with your Oztent Oxley 5 Lite Touring Tent, then you'd be able to make sure the water doesn't pool on your annexe like you were concerned about happening.
hi. I watched Ben's video on setting up the canvas version of this tent, and looking at the photo I wonder what happens to the annex when it rains? It appears as though it will either pool in the centre
Depending on how you set your Oztent Oxley 5 Lite Touring Tent, you can avoid any pooling on the annexe in a couple of different ways. There are are a couple of eyelets in the middle of the annexe, so you can raise the middle of the annexe to allow the rain to run off. Another option is to slightly lower the front poles so that the water runs off the front or pull the annexe really taught to allow the water to run off the sides. I hope this has been some help!
thanks for the information on this tent. I’d like to see one setup
We don't have an Oztent Oxley 5 Lite Touring Tent on display at the moment but we can definitely set one up for you. Just give us a buzz before you come in so that we can get one out for you!
Is the frame of these two tents similar. How does this compare to the Coleman for ease of erection? Could one person do it? Also, is it on display at Snowys Brendale?
The Oztent Oxley 5 Lite Touring Tent is very similar in its setup to the Coleman Instant Up as far as ease is concerned. It is a little heavier and sturdier than the Coleman though. You can see the setup video for the Oxley here & the Coleman setup here. These videos might help you make a better comparison.
Hi there I was wondering if this tent could be used without the fly like the oztent and is sealed off in the roof area ? Or is there open ventilation holes in the roof ?
I've just called Oztent to confirm as this tent is brand new to us, and they've told me that the tent can be completely sealed off without the fly, but as it's a lighter fabric they recommend to use it with the fly as that is what makes this tent 100% waterproof.
I see it has attaching points for them, thanks.
We've just had confirmation from Oztent that you can use the Jet Tent Complete Panel System on the Oztent Oxley 5 Lite Touring Tent. The colour might be a shade or two different, but it'll fit perfectly.
