For a sturdy touring tent that won’t weight down your trailer and will provide that extra space necessary to make your space more liveable– you can’t go past the Turbo Lite Plus 240 from Black Wolf.
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.
The Turbo Lite Plus 240 can be separated into two spaces with the curtain divider, or you can roll it up to enjoy one large space - so you can customise it to your own needs. For a lightweight and roomy touring tent for a bigger group, you can rely on the shelter of a Turbo Lite Plus 240.
This is an excellent quality tent and we have been very happy, using it extensively over the last year in all kinds of weather except snow. However I do now wish I had purchased the 450, as the awning on the 240 is too small for more than one person. The 450 has a side by side arrangement that provides lots more standing space inside (which I love) and a generous awning that would be so fabulous to have. I do not regret my choice to purchase a black wolf turbo at all, just the configuration. The 450 is a lot bigger so the plus will fit in more spaces. However the pictures on the website don’t really do justice to how long the plus is. It’s a large tent when set up.
Be aware this tent doesn’t have heaps of hooks and pockets compared to some others - it has one set of four pockets, two hooks, and loops for running a power cord. This was a surprise to me after upgrading from a fibreglass pole tent that had a lot more pockets and hooks.
How does the set up and packing time compare between the turbo lite 240 and turbo lite plus 240? I imagine the extra room would take considerable more time, specially to pack up
The Black Wolf Turbo Plus 240 Tent does take a little longer to set up than the standard 240 but only by a couple of minutes. You can see the full set up on our YouTube channel here.
Just wondering if the rear window is gusseted like the side windows?
I've given Black Wolf a buzz to double check this for you. The bloke I spoke to was 90% sure that the back window on the Black Wolf Turbo Lite Plus 240 Tent was gusseted but he was going to go and double check it for us. As soon as I hear anything back, I'll let you know the outcome.
Sorry for the delay here Pete, we are pretty sure the window is gusseted, but don't have one of these on display at the moment to confirm.
We are waiting on details from Black Wolf, I'll let you know as soon as I have the info from them.
Thanks for your patience mate. I had confirmation this morning from Black Wolf that the back window on the Turbo Lite Plus 240 Tent is gusseted, just like the side windows.
We are looking into a new family tent and we like the look of this tent but heard horror stories of them leaking. Also the 'plus' section holding water on top. Have you heard much about this?
The pooling and leaking of water on the plus sections of these tents isn't something we've had problems with, neither our sales or warranties team have heard of any such issues. Some pre-2017 Turbo Tents developed a leak at the base of the tent where the wall meets the floor, but this has been rectified with modified seams and seam seals on the on current versions. Black Wolf Turbo Tents are good to go straight out of the box and they are covered by an excellent warranty, should you come across any manufacturing issues all you need to do is get in touch with us and we'll address it straight away.
What does the dotted line on the floor plan represent? Is this a partition dividing the tent into two rooms?
That's correct. The feature of the 'Plus' model is the additional room at the rear and the line indicates the separation of the Black Wolf Turbo Lite Plus 240 Tent.
What are the differences between this model and the 2016 model?
I've just noticed that even though I answered your question the other day, for some reason it's no appearing on the website. I have no idea what happened there or if you recieved my original reply so I'll answer it again just in case.
There are a couple of differences between the 2016 and 2017 Turbo 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.
