For a quick overnight stop when the weather is fine, the Black Wolf Turbo Lite Touring Cap Fly clips to your Turbo or Turbo Lite tent in a jiffy and protects it from heavy desert dew and dry and windy conditions.
Available in two sizes: Black Wolf Turbo Lite Touring Cap Fly 240 (use with Black Wolf Turbo Lite 240 Tent and Black Wolf Turbo 240 Tent) and Black Wolf Turbo Lite Touring Cap Fly 300 (use with Black Wolf Turbo Lite 300 Tent and Black Wolf Turbo 300 Tent). Similar to a normal fly, the Touring Cap Fly comes without the typical awning set up to ensure that installation is super quick and easy.
With guy out points to the frame adding structural strength as well as offering a cover for the roof vents, the Black Wolf Turbo Touring Cap is sturdy in wind but is NOT suitable in heavy rain conditions. For camping in rain, use a regular fly with a front awning.
We own a 300 Plus (Canvas) and would LOVE one of these for overnight stays when we don't need the full awning. I feel like if at the rear the straps to clip to the base were looser, it would almost fit over the Plus models? Just wondering if anyone has tried this in store? Thanks! :-)
We haven't tried this for ourselves in store, and as far as I can find we haven't had any feedback from other customers who have tried this successfully either. I'd say that because of the shape of the back of the tent, it would be a struggle to get the Turbo Touring Cap to fit your Turbo 300 Plus tent.
I've just flicked through the 2016/17 Black Wolf catalogue, and there doesn't seem to be any plans to release one in the plus size for the upcoming season.
I'm sure Black Wolf would love to hear your feedback about additions to their Turbo range - you can get in touch with them through their website here if you like.
Thank you Emily for your fast answer! Yes I suspected that even if it did fit over, it would put some stress on the rear compartment/wide walls) I suspect with a small modification by a seamstress it could be fitted properly with some extra fabric to expand where the rear pops out from the frame, might be an option for us. We would like to be able to use the 300 Plus without the time taken to pop the full awning up, but having the protection against a small amount of rain or breeze.
No worries at all, that's what we're here for.
That’s sounds like it could be a good solution to your dilemma, but just bear in mind that modifications won’t be covered by a warranty, so there is a bit of a risk there. Good luck with your Turbo though Nicole!
I've had a look through the information in Black Wolf's 2017 catalogue, and the Turbo Lite Touring Cap is the only model mentioned.
I can't say for sure whether they will or won't bring one out in the future, but I think it's safe to say that there won't be a canvas option for the upcoming season.
