For 40 years the global benchmark by which all roof top tents are measured.  

EEZI-AWN Jazz Roof Top Tent

40 Years of Superior, Original South African Roof Top Tents


The roof top tent brand preferred by the world's most serious 4wd overlanders for decades.


EEZI-AWN roof top tents are often copied, but remain very much set apart by the superior grades of South African woven canvas. Not a single NZ brand roof top tent is made with this superior canvas! All are made with cheaper Chinese fabrics.


Real South African canvas together with hard wood base boards offers the ultimate in performance and comfort. EEZI-AWN fly sheets are NOT polyester, they're instead constructed from reinforced, UV stable PVC... much better!


Best of all EEZI-AWN roof top tents have a considerably lower profile on your vehicle roof in transit and offer faster setup/packup times!

As true commercial grade products, EEZI-AWN tents have long been the preferred choice for those needing equipment durable enough to be relied on for serious journeys across the harshest environments on Earth, but they're also simply the most comfortable & best performing tents to use day-in-day-out.  EEZI-AWN tents exude quality and will provide years of superior service in NZ.

Top Features

  • Proven pedigree.  The ultimate roof tents from the world's pre-eminent roof tent manufacturer, with nearly 40 years in the business.  The final evolution of decades of testing and development on every continent on Earth. 

  • Faster to setup than other canvas roof tents!  EEZI-AWN travel covers don't have a fiddly zip, instead they have an innovative built-in ratcheting mechanism.  A group product test by Expedition Portal found this made EEZI-AWN tents one of the easiest and fastest to setup.

  • 260gsm real South African woven polycotton canvas.  Nothing else like it in NZ!  It cannot be compared by fabric weight (gsm) alone.  See/feel this canvas at one of our upcoming exhibits to appreciate the quality difference.  Canvas of this specification is known to last many, many years, when properly cared for.

  • SABS approved mattress.  The 65mm covered mattress is approved by the South African Bureau of Standards.  EEZI-AWN goes to lengths to ensure their tents are as comfortable as they are durable.

  • No polyester - not even the tent fly!  EEZI-AWN tent fly's are uniquely constructed from UV stabilised, reinforced PVC. This is unique among roof tents, but is in keeping with EEZI-AWN's philosophy of only using the finest materials.   

  • Superior meranti reinforced, plywood baseboard.  The original and pre-eminent South African roof tent designers (not only EEZI-AWN) continue to specify more costly real wood baseboards, because their objective is to make the world's superior performing tents.  No other baseboard material insulates like real solid core meranti reinforced plywood, and everything that assists in reducing condensation in your roof tent is very welcome indeed.

  • Combines perfectly with an EEZI-AWN Awning. The Jazz pairs perfectly with an EEZI-AWN awnings, which have optional wall enclosure systems available and - importantly - these are also constructed from the same South African woven canvas as the Jazz.  

  • A real investment.  Whether you're keeping for the long term or later wish to sell, we believe this combination of superior quality, longer life materials and ultimate global brand, will retain value better.  

4wd rental fleets serving day-in-day-out in Africa specify EEZI-AWN tents up top (mounted on EEZI-AWN roof racks and load bars).  You can expect years of comfortable & dependable service.
