For small families on the go, the Turbo Lite 240 is the perfect durable and fast pitching touring tent. The Turbo range from Black Wolf is known for its durability, ease of set up, and lightweight construction so it’s the perfect range for a fuss and stress-free camping experience.

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 three-pole 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.

For a lightweight fast pitch tent for a couple or small family, the Turbo Lite 240 is the perfect match.  

  • 3 pole awning
  • Quick pitch frame
  • Lightweight Polyester construction
  • Extra fly coverage for improved weather protection
  • Reinforcing on the inside of the fly for durability

Turbo Lite Tent-Leaking reputation

Interesting to read that they have finally updated the seams and made the corners of the fly wider, I wonder if this will put an end to the leaking..I loved our Turbo Lite, we bought it in 2005, it did us proud on our numerous camping trips up north in the dry season .. it was an awesome tent to travel with...but.... camping down south, which is where we live, or in any rain... it was and still is a DISASTER, and after numerous complaints to Black Wolf, we were left very disheartened. I hope that the extra attention they may have spent on this Lite model fixes the problem..Unfortunately I'm not willing to try again. sad....

Thanks for sharing Julie - although I'm sorry to hear that your 2005 model Turbo is having some issues.

Since 2005, Black Wolf have released three major updates/redesigns on the turbo tent range - focusing on seam strength, leakage, water pooling, condensation and air-flow... among others. If you ever reconsidered replacing the old turbo tent, whether that's with a new Black Wolf or not... technology, design and materials have come along way in the past 13 years. Laine :)

can you give me some cons and pros of the turbo lite 240 compared to the turbo 240 (canvas)1 answer

I am interested in the turbo lite 240 tent because of its lower price to the canvas version, but I am concerned for the very low rating. Can you give me disadvantages/advantages of the lite version compared to the canvas one?

G'day Alzina,

The Black Wolf Turbo Lite 240 Tent is lighter, packs down smaller and is cheaper than its canvas sibling. Whilst there is a reduced Waterhead rating on the Lite tent, you'd still need it to be absolutely pouring down to have any issues with leaking as 2000mm is still a very good rating for a tent to have. The Canvas tent will also probably be marginally better when it comes to condensation if you go camping in very cold conditions.

Is condensation a problem?1 answer

Some of the reviews I read mention that the turbo lite can have more condensation problems than the canvas tent. I wonder how much of a problem is condensation with this tent. I never had condensation problems with my old cheap dome tents. So I am wandering if the turbo lite will have more condensation than a conventional dome tent? thanks

G'day Alzina,

If you're camping in super cold conditions, then condensation can become a problem in any tent. Some tents can be better at keeping it out than others but overall, if you open up some ventilation in your tent then you'll reduce the condensation a fair bit.

Is the lite Tent waterproofed?

- 6158(3 months ago)

G'day Alzina,

The Black Wolf Turbo Lite 240 Tent is definitely waterproof. It's got a Waterhead rating of 5000mm for the floor and 2000mm for the fly. If you wanted some clarification around Waterhead ratings, you can check out our blog here

Is this tent treatment with flame retardants?

- Kew(1 year ago)

G'day Cathy,

The Black Wolf Turbo Tents, like most tents on the market, aren't coated or treated with any form of flame retardants. In every instance, we highly encourage against having any form of flame within any tent for this (and other) reasons.
