If you like the layout of a large cabin tent, but you find them a little too roomy for your liking- then the Turbo Lite Cabin 380 from Black Wolf is the happy medium between space and design. The Turbo range from Black Wolf is a timeless design that’s lightweight, well made and easy to use – so it will see you through season after season.
This newly updated range has tape sealed seams where the floor and tent wall meet, and the fly has wider corners to guard against water leakage. In windy conditions, the extra reinforcing along the roof poles and the stronger mesh on the windows and doors will add to the robustness of this tent.
The large awning can be turned into an extended living area with optional panels, or it can be sectioned off with an optional screen room for a fully enclosed space. The added PVC storm flaps at the bottom of the optional front and side panels will help keep your awning dry in wet weather, and the zips and Velcro on the panels attach to the fly to allow for tape sealing for added water protection.
With plenty of headspace, two side by side rooms for extra liveability, and a versatile awning– you can’t go past the Turbo Lite Cabin 380 for fuss-free smaller cabin tent.
I quite like this tent but would really prefer a more durable material even if it means more bulk and weight when transporting it. Is there a canvas version available or do you know if Black Wolf is planning to produce one?
Unfortunately, the Black Wolf Turbo Lite Cabin 380 does not have a canvas version. The largest canvas model is the Turbo Plus 300. I would recommend calling Black Wolf directly in regards to their future plans for this range. You can contact them on 1800 227 070.
Why is the smaller 380 tent more expensive than the larger 450 tent?
Great question. At the moment, the demand for the Black Wolf Turbo Lite Cabin 450 is greater than the Black Wolf Turbo Lite Cabin 380. As a result, we currently source a larger supply which allows us to make our Everyday Low Price really low.
Are there hooks for lights in the roof of both rooms? Are there any storage pockets inside the tents? Does it come with a carry bag?
Included with the Black Wolf Turbo Lite Cabin 380 are loops to hang lights from in both rooms, however, there are no storage pockets.
The tent comes included with a durable polyester bag with plenty of space to make getting the tent in and out regularly quite easy.
Is there a screen room and side panels available suitable for the 380 please?
We've only just received stock for the Black Wolf Turbo Lite Cabin 380 Screen Room and unfortunately, they're not on the website yet. You're still able to buy them by giving us a call on 1300 914 007 and we can give you a price over the phone.
Is this cabin the latest 2017 model or is it the 2016? What are the main differences between the old and new model?
There are a couple of differences between the 2016 and 2017 Turbo Lite tents from Black Wolf. The main ones are that the 2017 models are tape seam sealed where the floor meets the tent wall seam, the fly has wider corners to prevent water coming through, the windows and doors have stronger mesh, and there is extra reinforcing along the ridge poles.
We have a blog post that actually goes through all of the updates, and compares the old and new models which may be helpful for you, which you can have a read of here.
I've just realised that I completely forgot to answer the first part of your question - this tent is indeed the 2017 model Turbo. I apologise about that, let us know if you have any further queries about the Black Wolf range.
