  • Instructions
  • Peg mallet included For your convenience, we’ve included a peg mallet with this tent! This is designed with a rubber head that won’t damage your pegs. We’ve got you covered!
  • 320g Polycotton Canvas Our 320g canvas is made from a polyester/cotton blend for the simple reason that the life, performance and strength are far better than other fabrics. We use 320g polycotton canvas on all of our roofs, walls, inner's and fly's. This means you're assured of greater performance from your tent.
  • Double stitched seams Lap felled seam construction (doubling seams around on each other) with double stitching ensures maximum strength around the seams of your tent.
  • 1100 denier PE Floor The heaviest 1100 denier PE fabric is used to withstand foot traffic for many years.
  • Passivate steel frame The oxide layer created in the passivating process enhances corrosion resistance and reduces rust, which makes these poles great for coastal areas. Passivating increases the life of your poles and reduces wear on your tent. In addition, we are able to achieve more internal space and higher roof peaks.
  • Extra wall and peak height This tent has a very high peak and wall height giving more head room and more internal air volume ensuring a cooler tent over the hot summer.
  • Dual opening dividing wall The dual opening dividing wall gives the flexibility to create extra room when needed.
  • Metal pegging D's All of our canvas tents have heavy duty metal pegging D's for extra strength and stability. If a tent does not have quality D's the webbing can be damaged by a hammer when driving in the pegs. This can result in the webbing being torn.
  • Quality zips, ropes and poles All our tents use heavy-duty coil zips, guy ropes and poles so you can be assured your tent will last for many years of exciting family camping holidays.
  • No-see-um mesh Even small bugs can't get through our no-see-um-mesh. Enjoy insect free living with ample air circulation.
  • PVC skylights/windows Skylight windows are 2-way, with clear PVC on the outside and a 'privacy' screen on the inside. This adds valuable light in all weather conditions but maintains privacy.
  • Accessory pockets Accessory pockets provide handy storage for smaller items and valuables.
  • Lantern hanging points Conveniently located tabs to hang LED lanterns.
  • Power cord entry Power cord entry makes it easy to plug in appliances or charge your phone when on a powered tent site.
  • Fly available separately A fly adds longevity to your tent fabric while also providing many other benefits. It helps keep the tent cooler during the day and warmer at night. It cuts down noise and reduces morning light for a more comfortable sleep. It also stops condensation in the same way a building does with inner ceiling and outer roof trapping air between the layers.
  • Sunroom available separately Kiwi Camping sunrooms are made from the same quality fabrics as your canvas tents, including large windows, a loose fit detachable floor and an extra front door. They create a fully enclosed additional room or the three walls can be removed independently to create more outdoor flow.

  • The Mansion of Tents! Jordan Watson - How to DAD

    This tent is a bloody mansion! Big enough that the Mrs and I have our own room and then the kids back half has a room divider so they each have a room too! Easy instructions and unlike flat pack furniture - all the parts were there. I'm looking forward to summer in this beast - thanks Kiwi Camping.

    A fantastic Canvas tent, kept our family cool in the hot summer sun and nights while camping at taupo bay far north. Love the seperate areas for kids and adults, allowing for privacy. Ease of erecting with strong poles. The mesh windows allow for breeze. Plenty of room. The best tent I've owned.
  • Mr David Mcleod-Makarauri

    Probably the best tent I've owned, had it a few years now, and still going strong, even through the major storm January 2018, tent got flatted, literally. Only damage was one tiny rip (1cm) in the mesh and a slightly bent pole, if I could add pics, you could see what happened to the tent and the minimal damage. Still use it every year, for the whole month of January and during the year. Thank you
