UV protection1 answers

Wondering if there's some kind of UV coating on the tent?

- Florida(4 weeks ago)

G'day Cheryl, 

I've just spoken with Oztent, and they've said that the waterproof coating on the fabric of the RV3 tent will also provide you with some UV protection, but it will have some limitations over time so that's something to keep in mind.

Is a cgear multimat suitable for a oztent ground sheet?1 answers

Hi Snowys crew, I already have a cgear multimat 4.3×2.4, would this be ok for a ground mat for this tent? I would stick the excess out the front, under the tent awning for a clean tent floor top and bottom. I am tossing up between and rv3 and rv4 for two people and possibly an occasional third.

- Morphett vale(3 months ago)

G'day Glen,

Yes the C-Gear Multimat would be fine as a robust ground sheet for the RV3 Canvas Touring Tent. It comes in various sizes including 2.4m x 4.3m, and is the ultimate groundsheet for this tent.

It is made from dual layer woven synthetic fibre and includes a heavy duty carry bag. This mat will definately help protect your tent investment from damage from below. Cheers!

Small roof racks1 answers

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

Hi 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.

Roof mounted transport1 answers

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

- Geelong(5 months ago)

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.

Is the RV4 freestanding?1 answers

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

- MUNNO PARA WEST, SA(5 months ago)

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.

Best way to transport2 answers

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

- QUEANBEYAN, NSW(1 year ago)
G'day Owen, Yes the Oztent RV3 is 2M long in the bag therefore you need a big car or a decent roof rack. If travelling on the roof it is recommended to be in a basket or attached to a flat base on some racks.
- Snowys(1 year ago)
Good Morning Owen. I have just noticed your question from the weekend and wanted to pitch in on a couple of things Dave may have missed. I would recommend transporting the tent with the 300 mm horizontal, it will be sturdier on your roof and will overcome the problem of over-tightening of straps causing damage to the poles. In a vertical state you would probably be putting stress on some of the hinges, when laid flat the straps will not need to be as tight to keep the tent secure. That being said, I would only do the straps up enough to keep the tent from moving around.

Condensation 1 answers

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

- QUEANBEYAN, NSW(1 year ago)
There is always a chance of this Owen, there are ways to minimise condensation and you can read about them here Ventilation is the key to avoiding dampness inside the tent, if you seal up your RV with two people inside for 8 hours, the moisture from your breath needs a way to escape the tent, otherwise it just ends up on the inside of your tent walls.

Drop sheet for awning??1 answers

Can you attach a tarp/drop sheet to the side of the awning? I need to create a wind break for cooking outdoors.

- KINGSFORD, NSW(1 year ago)
G'day Loris. The RV3 isn't designed to take a dropsheet or tarp as such but you can purchase side and front panels for it. They simply zip and velcro into place. We sell both - enter the product numbers into the search box above to have a look: side #33503, front #21804. Hope that helps.

I need two additional poles - please advise the pole length for the RV32 answers

- Chatswood(1 year ago)
G'day Tony, I'm assuming the poles your enquiring about are the awning poles. If so, the pole is 190cm in length and called the Oztent Alloy Pole. I hope this helps!
- Snowys(1 year ago)
Hi Tony, Yes as Paul has stated the 190cm poles are the standard issue. If you plan to put a peak in the middle of your awning you can choose the 220cm poles. Combined with a ridge pole this will give you extra headroom, water run off and extra rigidity in the wind.

Can I fit 2 Stretchers inside?1 answers

Just wondering if Ill be able to fit my two king goanna stretchers inside? Would there be much room around it?

- MOUNT MACEDON, VIC(1 year ago)
Hi Sean, the angle of the rear wall needs to be taken into account when using stretchers RV tents. Two King Goanna Stretchers will need to be placed crossways in the RV3, one person will be sleeping with the rear wall very close to their side. You can just squeeze them lengthways into the RV4 with the stretchers poking into the ends of the tent a little, but the rear wall will still be close to your face. Crossways in the RV4 goves you comfortable sleeping space, with some room to move around the stretchers, but not much.
