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

All New Series 3 40th Edition Roof Top Tent!

"The roof tent that your heirs will fight over" - Expedition Portal

For the past 40 years EEZI-AWN's Series tents have been one of the most proven global expedition-grade tents on the planet, proven on every major continent on Earth.

Soft shell roof tents don't have to be slow to pack up!

The new 40th edition Series 3 80% packs itself up!

Approximately 80% of the usual lifting and packing of canvas, as typically required of soft shell roof top tents, is eliminated by the new Series 3 40th.

The world's fastest canvas roof tents just got faster!

Still made with South African woven canvas that far surpasses the Chinese canvas used on cheaper copies and all NZ brand roof top tents. Original EEZI-AWN tents remain the best available on the world market.

  • Proven pedigree.  The ultimate roof top 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 top 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.

  • 360gsm real South African woven polycotton canvas.  This is the canvas sometimes referred to as 'military spec' - there is 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 fly!  EEZI-AWN roof top tent fly's are uniquely constructed from UV stabilised, reinforced PVC. This is unique among roof top 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 top 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 roof top 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 BAT270 or Swift Awning. Whilst we don't have an annex/room for the Series 3, it pairs up perfectly with either of these EEZI-AWN awnings, both of which have optional wall enclosure systems available and - importantly - these are also constructed from real South African woven canvas.  The price difference between the Series 3 and the Xklusive-T Top is sufficient to fully cover the cost of one of these wall enclosure systems, so it's a great alternative to consider.  

  • 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.

Both the Xklusive T-Top and Series 3 are available in 1400mm, 1600mm, 1800mm and 2200mm.  1600mm is very spacious/luxurious for a couple, or can accommodate a small, young family.  The 1800 and 2200mm versions (currently by special order) are the ultimate roof tents for families or groups.
