All air, no poles, the Black Wolf Turbo Air Tent features Air Poles that make set up a breeze (pardon the pun) and set down even easier, with a pack size that fits easily into your vehicle.
It takes just a few minutes with the included high volume air pump on a single valve and your Turbo Air Tent is ready to occupy, the only poles you will have to mess with are the three used to pitch the front awning. Pack up is even easier, deflate the poles, fold, roll and go!
Made to the quality we have come to expect from the Black Wolf Turbo Range, the Turbo Air Tent is a fast, easy and lightweight alternative to otherwise bulky touring tents and is perfect for a weekend getaway or touring couple.
I did a previous positive review, now its many months down the track.
And on bush sites this thing is not so good.
Its too big for many of them.
And in pretty vallley the winds pushed the roof down and pinned me to the floor.
The two other tents there had no problems.
Its more work to setup than a quick erect and the number of pegs 34 it also hard yakka.
Absolutely love this tent. So quick and easy to put up. Unbelievably strong in 70+km winds and i didn't even have the guide ropes set. Had one small leak with one of the bedroom air pole. Sent one E-mail to Snowys outdoor and Nick had a replacement pole sent out in 3 days. So i give Snowys 5 star for service. Note the leaking air pole was an isolated incident and is very rare.
Great tent, easy to put up even with two kids around!!! Lots of room and good performances on windy night. We love it!!! Thank you snowys for a quick and professional transaction.
Why this tent suits me I am 63 and single not 26. I can carry it and put it up solo. It fits in my kia rio. Its light for its size pros cost, weight, size- its big enough for my keyboard and sax in the spare bedroom. Physically easy to erect. fits in a small car and can be packed into any shape. Only one item-not poles- fly- tent - assembly cons not free standing battery and parts from jaycar tent and zempire pump from snowys. first get the zempire air pump and battery. set it to 6.5 or 7 lbs second get the tent third peg out the base nice and taut fourth pump it up at the three valves starting with the centre two columns then the other two walk inside and help it lift it as it finishes each pump. it wont do that on its own. last pegs, pegs, always pegs. a bit tedious. now at last furniture and a cuppa. make sure to change the view.
First up, the service from Snowys has been excellent from start to finish.
The air pole system is way quicker and way more rigid compared to other dome tents. I've noticed that even before I guyed out the ropes at the campsite, that the tent barely moved in a light gusts compared to neighbouring tents using conventional fiber glass & alum poles. This aspect was all I had hoped for.
On the down side, On first inspection of the tent I was surprised to find a few material flaws on the inner tent, i.e. frayed ends & loose threads.
On second use of the tent, the inner tent started to split at the seams with a un-fixable hole developing at one connection point to the air-beam. I sent some photos to Snowys and they quickly arranged a complete tent replacement to be couriered from Adelaide to Geelong. I haven't used the replacement yet, but on inspection in the back yard, the inner tent was virtually flawless, way better than the first. I'm satisfied at this point, that the first tent was a bad batch as Snowys suggested.
The only other design feedback I can offer is that personally I would prefer wider bedrooms and a narrower middle room. The current 1.8m wide bedroom only the bedding in the one orientation, not so good if you want a safe distance between the kidlets!
Hi Snowys - you'll see I posted my review against the regular turbo tent, feel free to put it the right spot!

Excellent. So easy and quick to put up. Our friends with "traditional" tents were still struggling while we were having coffee and admiring the scenery. Pump system works well and is not arduous. Good quality build and very spacious for two. Slower to take down and pack, but far outweighed by speed of erection. Thoroughly recommeded. Photo attached at Yadborough in the Budawangs.
Have been camping with this tent for almost a month and it's simple to erect and pack up. The air does need to be topped up every 3 days or so to keep the air poles up in windy and heavy rain conditions. Overall a good buy for a family of 4 with enough space for 2 queen air beds, clothes and the ability to stand upright in the middle. Ma
Set up in no time, Massive tent with heaps of head room.
Great over size bag to get it back into.
What is easier to erect, pack up and more wind and weather resistant.
Great question. It's very hard to split these two tents, with the major difference being that the Coleman Instant Northstar Dark Room 10P Tent is constructed with steel poles and the Black Wolf Turbo Air Twin Tent with TPU inflatable poles. One of the great things about inflatable poles is that they can handle far more pressure from the wind because there is some 'give' in the poles. However, in terms of set up, the steel poles make set up and pack down just a little bit easier to manage.
What kilometer winds is it waranted too
Black Wolf don't specify a wind rating for the Turbo Air Twin Tent sorry. The Turbo Air tents aren't specifically designed to withstand strong wind gusts but when pegged out properly and using all available guy ropes they'll perform as well as any other tent this size.
Hi, Could you please tell me if the bedrooms at each end would fit a queen size mattress?
The sleeping areas to each side are 3m x 1.8m. The good news is that most queen size mattresses are between 1.4m - 1.6m wide which should give you enough space to fit it in. We reckon' it's good to have a 10cm buffer on the side to accommodate for the sloping tent wall. Make sure you double check the width of your mattresses however just to make sure.
Hello, we are trying to decide between these tents for camping in the victorian climate. We have two little kids. The zemphire looks to have a lot more ventilation but the black wolf potentially more room. Do you have a recommendation? Thanks
These are both fantastic quality tents, and sit at the top of the tent range.
My experience with both tents would indicate to me that the Zempire would sit a little higher for useability than the Black Wolf and its side walls are a little more upright allowing for more useable space. The head room in both is great with the Zempire overall being a little higher and brighter inside. The Black wolf wings are slightly lower so may require a little ducking if you are a taller person. The Zempire also boasts a 5000mm waterproof rating whereas the Black Wolf has a lesser 2000mm, so that could be also taken into consideration.
Hi, I would like to buy this tent and would need a tarp along with it. Is there any specific one / size you could recommend?
G’day Farhan, I’ve had a gander at our tarp range, and the size that would best fit the Black Wolf Turbo Air Twin Tent is the Kookaburra Dura Green Heavy Duty Tarp 16 x 20 ft/ 4.88 x 6.1m size (Snowys code: 46665). The Kookaburra tarp is a great all-rounder tarp that will give you a little bit of space around the outside of the tent, so you should have pretty thorough protection when used with the Turbo.
The pipe connecting the pump to the pole air inlets has been damaged and comes loose when pumping. Can this be replaced on its own?
Hi, How well will it stay up and straight in wind? Are the air poles as good as metal/Alu' frame? At the moment I have the Coleman instant up (8p) and just open and secure the floor with no ropes.... Thanks
I had an old turbo which had two pole setups at either end to support the side rooms. I was wondering if these are now air poles.
Hi Ben, What's the head night in the side rooms?
We have just bought the Turbo Air Twin from you, do you know why Black Wolf have excluded the Zippered Power Inlet from this model? I have just checked the Turbo Twin which is vertically the same tent and it is included.
Well that's just plain silly by BW!
Just asking as it makes a big difference for winter camping.
Is there much ventilation between the fly and the tent body given that these use air poles? Would this tent be more prone to condensation than a normal turbo tent?
Blackwolf rep told me the room divider is a curtain that isn't connected to the floor however the photo shows what looks to be a zippered door. I think she was confused between the Plus and the Twin. Can you confirm which is correct?
Also extremely interested in this. Tossing up between the air and the equivalent pole tent. I like the air concept but being stuck in the bush with a punctured bladder that can't be patched and not a replacement air pole in sight. Is there any update to this query ?
We need to place special orders for bladders depending on Black Wolf's stock availability.
If you can give us a buzz on 1300 914 007, our customer support team can look into this further for you.
With very little pics it is hard to gauge the design differences of this model.
Just wondering if the pump used for the Black Wolf Air tents, can also be used for airbeds/mattresses? Looking to buy a couple of Coleman airbeds too.
