Our latest product to break cover in Europe is the all new Premium, AFRICA Series Heavy Duty Tuff-Trek 380g Rooftent.

Having looked at all the other Roof Top Tent products on the market we took the best elements from each and combined them to make our own, all new AFRICA SERIES Tuff-Trek 380g Rooftent, hand made for us in South Africa, designed for long duration overland journeys.

What makes them different?

Fabric – we went with a world class, famous 380g Ripstop Polyester-Cotton blend canvas. This highly durable fabric is a little heavier and old fashioned but well known from other South African rooftents. It features a special pigment coating to give it great UV resistance, great water proofing and the abilty to weather and face UV really well. It’s then coated again with a special fluorocarbon coating to make it extra slippery and mould resistant.

Because these tents were designed for longer Overlanding  Trip we decided to offer the new AFRICA SERIES Tuff-Trek 380g Canvas Rooftent with or without a full lower annex. You decide depending on your own needs….
