A multi award winning design, the 30 Second Oztent RV1 Canvas Touring Tent is considered by many to be one of the best 2 person tents on the market. Designed with a smaller 1.6m long pack size, the RV1 will suit users with limited vehicle storage capacity.
The patented internal aluminium frame enables one person to effortlessly assemble and disassemble the tent in less than 30 seconds. Twist and Lock telescopic poles are included to extend the awning which features a stiffener that makes rolling up the awning a one person job.
Side and rear windows feature super fine insect mesh as does the door, while the rear window can be guyed out to allow ventilation in all weather.
Made with nothing but quality components, the Oztent RV1 features 100% waterproof 8oz ripstop canvas, YKK zips throughout, heavy duty PVC flooring and guy ropes with built in storage pockets.
But for one small person it's too heavy and cumbersome.
I found it almost impossible to get it into my small SUV. and the effort of it all did spoil the camping experience for me. Sold quickly to a family for the 'kids tent'
Excellent product with quality service and advice.
Yes, 30 seconds for one, not so big, person to put up. Super comfortable with the 10cm self inflating mattress (also from Snowys) Great customer service!
this tent is so easy and simple to set up and put away. the quality of the tent material is absolutely awesome. should have bought this years ago
Does everything as advertised plus more Very happy
The tent meets all my requirements, the quality is excellent, I'm enjoying discovering the little extras in the construction, such as vents high up, zip down side windows. Speed of putting it up is all that it's advertised to be. The side panels do take a bit of time. One suggestion I would make would be some attachment to hang an internal light or clothes hook. Stood up to some very rough weather. Love it

What height will it be at front of awning when side panels are attached?
Yes they are indeed, you can have a look at them here (just select RV1 size from the dropdown). The awning on the RV1 is a little different to the 2,3,4, and 5 so it can be a little confusing.
So I’ve confirmed with Oztent on the phone, and the RV1 tent comes with 2 x 1.9m telescopic poles, and the RV1 Side Panels come with 2 x 2.2m poles – so the peak of the side awning is 2.2m high, and the front is 1.9m on the RV1 Tent.
We don't deal in accessories such as roof bars Drew, so I'm not going to be able to help much here sorry. I have not heard of the RV1 being used in such a way, but it appears some people are setting up their vehicles as such. I imagine you would need roof bars to support the weight of the tent and yourself, along with a large platform such as marine ply with attachment points to anchor the tent to. You would then need to consider how you set up the awning, possibly with extra long poles, or angled down from the top of the tent, and you may need to extend the length of all the guy ropes There is no 'off-the-shelf' solution to this though, you'll need to grab some tools and delve into a bit of DIY to make this happen I reckon.
You have a picture of this tent as a roof top tent - can it be used as both ground and roof top tent and if so what additions do you need to buy to be able to use it as roof top? Look forward to your reply
Hi Helen, there are no specific roof top accessories available. Basically all you need is a solid flat base on your roof racks. Ideally aluminium sheet or marine ply wood. You would then need to fit some attachment points on the base to replicate the tent being pegged to the ground.
What are the water head ratings of the tent and the floor?
