Concur 100% with previous review. It IS heavy, but is manageable, and excellent value and quality for Snowys special price. Used a week ago in cold Southwest WA but no rain to test waterproofing yet. Wife and I very happy so far. Unfortunately fractured leg hiking so, sadly, no further camping for a while!
Oh no! I'm sorry to hear that David! I hope you'll be back on your feet and exploring outback WA very soon. Laine :)
This tent is everything it is said to be. Quick to erect once you get the hang of it, and quite roomy, We haven't seen any serious rain yet but have no doubt it will keep out anything that can be dished up to it; the canvas is that heavy. And therein lies the problem. It is bulky to transport with the roof frame inserted so we carried it in the roof cage of our 4WD. Getting it up there took every bit of strength my wife and I could muster. It would be ideal in a trailer.
Hi. Website shows waterhead rating of 1300mm which I understand is low/not great whereas write-up on various sites including Snowys and Oztrail is a 4 Season (winter tent) with a SatProof 600+ 350 gsm ripstop canvas. Are you able to confirm how water proof the tent is? Apologies in advance if my interpretation/comparison of waterhead rating versus 4 season etc is incorrect. Also, does the tent need to be guyed out? From review if appears to only be for the awning poles. Many thanks.
Is this the 3 layer roof, as is advertised on oztrails own site specifications? EG with the Insulcell insulation? Also, how is the centrepole secured/tightened? Oxtrail say "one touch"- if so, please explain how that works? (My old tourer tent has usual screw in thing which slips somewhat.) Finally, they say warranty is 2 yrs but yours 1yr?
Does Ћ canvas front door have a 2 way zip to open from inside and outside?
We've teamed up with zipMoney to offer a better way to pay! Boo yeah!
