  • Instructions
  • 320g canvas Our Duraproof 320 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 canvas on all of our roofs, walls, inner's and fly's. This means you're assured of greater performance from your tent.
  • Twin stitched seams Lap felled seam construction (doubling seams around on each other) with twin stitching ensures maximum strength around the seams of your canvas tent.
  • 1100 denier PE Floor The heaviest 1100 denier PE fabric is used to withstand foot traffic for many years.
  • Gold passivate frame The gold passivate frame protects your tent from wear caused by the canvas rubbing as the composition is longer lasting than standard galvanized frames. In addition, with our unique steel frame 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.
  • Extra large porch The biggest porch available will shade you from the sun during the hottest hours of the day.
  • Rain drain porch Higher side porch poles allow the rain to drain off more efficiently.
  • 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.
  • 3-way windows The windows are clear PVC zipped on the outside, with no-see-um mesh sewn in the middle and an internally zipped 'privacy' window on the inside. Both inside and outside flaps can be opened to allow a flow of air through the tent.
  • PVC skylights/windows Skylight windows are 2-way, with clear PVC on the outside and a zipped '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.
  • Tiered storage Handy tiered storage to easily locate important items. We also have corner storage units available separately which can be hooked onto pre-installed ties providing added storage for longer holidays.
  • 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 included 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.

  • Good Enough to Live In! Roxy

    Hi. I just want to share our story with you and to say a huge “Thank you”. We purchased the Moa 12 canvas tent in April this year. My husband and I, along with our 11 year old daughter decided to give up living in a house and experience what living in a tent could bring us. We are coming up to our 4 month mark of our 1 year tent life. We faced winter head on, and thanks to this tent we got through the cold rain and very strong winds really happily. This tent has withstood everything so far that nature has chucked at it. We are so thankful that we came across this tent and bought it. So thank you very much.
    Hi Roxy. Wow! What an amazing family adventure! Yes, we are very proud of the quality of our tents. We're so glad to hear the Moa 12 is serving you well. Thanks for taking the time to let us know how happy you are with our products. And all the best for the next 8 months! From the team at Kiwi Camping.
  • Re Moa 12 Wayne McLeod

    Hi, We have the Moa 12 and absolutely love it, its a nice big tent and easy to put up. One good feature is that it's nice and dark so good for sleeping in on holiday. We had a few days of pooring down with rain and strong winds and not a single leak . GREAT TENT.
    Hi Wayne. Thanks so much for taking the time to leave us your feedback. It really is a fantastic tent.
The Moa

The Moa

The moa were flightless birds endemic to NZ. Some reached about 3.6m in height and about 230kg in weight. They were the dominant herbivores in NZ for thousands of years until dying out by AD 1400 due to overhunting by the Maori and habitat decline.
