More internal space, same packed length, the 30 Second Oztent RV3 Canvas Touring Tents multi award winning design features a different fold location in the patented internal aluminium frame enabling the pack size to be the same as the RV2.
Considered by many to be one of the best touring tents on the market the RV3 is effortlessly assembled by one person 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 RV3 features 100% waterproof 8oz ripstop canvas, YKK zips throughout, heavy duty PVC flooring and guy ropes with built in storage pockets.
We used our Oztent from Snowys for the first time last week, and it endured rain, wind and cold. We were snug as bugs inside, also in our sleeping bags from Snowys! Thankyou for all the quality gear we have bought. Its always very well packed and delivered quickly. Snowys comes highly recommended by us!!
The greatest part is being able to stand up at the door. The 1st outing was extremely cold and windy, tent handled these conditions extremely well. Compared to my old dome tent the O.Z. tent is shear luxury.
Loving my new RV3 - such a great high-quality product. Surprisingly warm for a tent too. It is heavier and bulkier than I was expecting - glad I have a van to put it into as it would not fit into a car. The awning definitely needs two guys/pegs on each side and only one supplied; also the middle dips - but this might just be inexperienced setting up :-) One thing that could be improved I think is different coloured cords on the internal & external zippers to distinguish in darkness!
HAVE USED THE TENT TWICE AND FOUND IT TO BE EXCELLENT. ITS EASY TO SET UP. GOOD QUALITY AND WELL THOUGHT OUT HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
First trip with this tent and we had heavy rain and strong gusty wind. No leaks at all and no damage, despite some really strong wind gusts. It takes time to set up the complete tent with side and front panels and the fly but it's worth the effort, particularly if it looks like bad weather. No condensation inside when using the fly.
Tested the tent up in the Snowy Mountains area and with some strong wind gusts, the RV3 was simple to put up and took the wind in it's stride. Few hints, peg the base down first and the rest is easily a one person operation. To help with packing up, put a tarp down first to save cleaning (it's easier to clean the tarp}. Great product and excellent turn around time by Snowy's. Thanks
Took our rv3 oz tent for it's first trip. Night one we coped a huge thunder storm it poored rain and blew and we were dry and warm. It is what it says quick to put up and down after a week of camping and moving around this tent is fantastic my dad is 85 and he puts it up and down. Thanks snowys
great little tent recently purchased 2 oz3 tents for local junior football comp. quick easy to pull down kids have a water proof area to store their jumpers for after a wet match. love it,,
Just came back from the cape using this tent - was fantastically easy to use and pack up. We bought from Snowy's and the service was first rate as well
My dad got this tent a few days ago and just can not believe how easy it is to put up on his own. At the age of 85 he is all set now for our big trip. The price was also the cheapest we live in cooma NSW so free delivery was also tops. We had our tent in 2 days so now are very happy little campers.
Following on from my previous question, If I tied the tent to a piece of 90x45 framing pine before putting it on the roof rack, do you think that would stop the the tent flexing on the roof rack? My ca can't have bigger roof racks unfortunately, cheers Jen
As far as we can understand it, it sounds like this may not be an ideal set up in terms of safety. We would recommend that you contact a roof rack manufacturer about your set up, as they will have the expertise to advise you on what would be the best option.
Hi I have a little Subaru RV hatch the roof racks are only 75cm apart, is there an issue with strapping this tent down with 60cm either end that is free, and if so can you suggest a better option? I intend to also have a Thule on the roof rack at the same time. Cheers, Jen
G’day Jen, I’ve spoken to our caravanning expert and he has told me that because of the size of your car/roof racks you will have an issue strapping an RV3 on car. You may need longer roof racks or borrow a bigger car from a friend. The RV1 is shorter, so it would fit your set up better - but that would be a huge downsize. It may be best to go back to the retailer that you purchased your racks from (as we don’t sell roof racks) – as they might be able to recommend a better storage solution for you.
Do I need to use guy ropes if staying one night on solid ground? I would have a queen camp stretcher on the inside so it would be weighted down. Just wondering if strong winds would move it much. Thanks
G’day Brutus, the RV4 will stand upright on its own without the guy ropes but we wouldn’t recommend using this tent without the guy ropes pegged especially in strong winds. This is because your tent may get damaged if it’s allowed to twist around in directions it’s not meant to. If properly used, the guy ropes will prevent the tent from bending in the wind. The RV Tents from Oztrail are super easy to set up, so the extra few minutes it takes to peg out the guy ropes will make a world of difference in adverse weather so keep that in mind.
Hi Guys, I just purchased an rv3, and was wanting to transport the tent, on a roof platform, due to space, wanted to know, does it matter which way the tent lays on the platform, as it is 300x150x2000, I think it would fit better having the 300mm vertical, rather than laying flat, due to room to fit my second spare on top, does it matter? Also wanted to know, when strapped down, if to tight, would it bend any of the poles? Thanks guys.. Cheers Owen
Hi, was wondering, if the end of our bed touches the end of an rv3, are we going to get wet feet or wet head, which ever is in contact.. Cheers Owen
Can you attach a tarp/drop sheet to the side of the awning? I need to create a wind break for cooking outdoors.
Just wondering if Ill be able to fit my two king goanna stretchers inside? Would there be much room around it?
