There is a waterproof cover over the top of the tent to give it extra protection from the elements. The tent folds out neatly using a series of aluminium tubular loops.
One of the loops mounts in place to form an entrance cover so you can go in and out but still be under cover. The mattress is is a 3 inch thick, high density foam mattress with a green cotton cover (washable).
There are 3 windows on the other sides of the tent. The windows also have an insect screen zipped in which can also be fully opened or not. The windows are firmly propped open with stainless steel rods. The base of the tent is aluminium coated ABS plastic. All the material is double stitched and the zips are wide heavy duty zips.
The PVC outer cover is fastened in place with thick Velcro and 2 securing straps. One of the best features of the tent system is the zip on annex at the base of the tent. This provides a whole other room, which can be used to keep a kitchen, your wet or dirty clothing or other items.
You even have enough room to sleep 2 children in there. The main annex is made from the same durable and waterproof material that is on the outer of the tent. There is 1 entrance and 2 windows to either side, these all have anti insect netting integrated, so you can have the option of fully opened, open with anti insect netting or fully closed. The rear of the annex has a single zipped exit into the vehicle, this means you can access the vehicle without going outside. The ladder forms the support for the tent and sits within the annex.
It has a fully waterproof PVC groundsheet on the floor which is zipped together with the main annex. The material is double stitched and has built in straps to connect the guide ropes to.PLEASE NOTE: The annex section of the tent is only showerproof therefore will require treating to be completely waterproof. The roof rack which houses the tent is an awesome, heavy duty rack.
The'Troop 3' rack is used for 1.8 metre wide tent. The rack is made form black powder coated, thick tubular steel.
The tubing provides the 4 sub frame bars, which from side to side and give good support. There is a steel, powder coated mesh which covers the whole floor area.This square mesh surface can take the weight of the tent and its occupants easily. The roof rack has 8 bracket fixing points with 6 bolt connections per brackets. Each of the 8 brackets are higher brackets due to the height of the roof, they are 9 inches high. The brackets securely attach the rack with nylock nuts and other fixings.
Then they slot into the side metal gutters of the Defender. There are also 2 brilliantly useful accessory mounts at the front and rear, where you can mount a search light, work light, beacon, radio aerial etc directly above the drivers window for the front mount, so you can simply reach up and adjust when needed.
