Pack on the roof
The roof has integrated cross beams inside and fitted with heavy duty M8 channel tracks outside, designed to carry your lighter gear. Ideal for solar panels, sand tracks and of course, the ladder holder. Although heavier items (spread loads up to 176lb) can be accommodated during travel, heavier items may have to be removed before the tent can be opened.
The canvas is 260gsm UV treated rip-stop canvas and all the seams are sealed with hot-air tape.
The canvas portion of the tent is removable. If the vehicle is standing outdoors for long periods of time or if there are repairs required on the canvas, simply remove the entire tent by disconnecting the heavy duty 2" Velcro perimeter.
The mattress is a high density 3" egg crate composite consisting of a 2" layer of high density foam beneath a 1" layer of convoluted foam. The mattress cover is waterproof under a poly-cotton fabric, and is 100% washable.
Dust and rain proof
A day's overlanding can be a dusty and sometimes wet affair. The tent is fitted with an all-round rubber seal ensuring that no water or dust gets into your bedding.
The ceiling of the tent is fully carpeted to prevent drops of condensation landing on you in the night. If the tent is left closed in a humid environment for long periods of time, it is always best to periodically open up and "air" the tent or to simply remove the tent canvas and mattress to prevent condensation damage.
The underneath surface of the tent is fitted with a crisscross of track extrusions enabling a low profile mounting to virtually any surface.
Options include an LED internal light, Roof-Mounted Ladder Holder, Ceiling Stowage Net and Shoe Bag (attaches to ladder).
