Want to see a roof tent

Hi All,

So I am looking to buy a roof tent for my Defender. I want to see them before I buy one. I am in the Kent area, does anyone know a supplier that would let me have a look.

Thanks

You're probably best trying to get to a Show to see them all at once. Not sure which the best would be though.

Try looking for shows with at least 4x4overland and tuff-trek attending.

Personally, i have a Ikamper Skycamp and love it.

My advice on roof tents is go for a hard top, not a flappy fabric thing. Fabric isn’t waterproof so you are relying on chemicals treating it, and they flap, a lot in windy conditions. Get a good quality hard top one, and yes they are more money, but you get it back. I’ve had 10 years out of my Maggi before selling it for more than I purchased it. I’ve had many mates come and go with several fabric ones in that time.

I will be re-waterproofing it yearly - which is easy enough. Regards

Go to a show and see them in the flesh, see them being put up and taken down before you shell out, all RTT 's are not equal!

If you can't wait fro a show, definitely pay a visit to Dara @ Tuff-trek, plenty on display for you to look at and not just their own designs, they are the European distributors for many top brands too.

Oh if we're doing that then...

I have an awesome perfect condition large Maggiolina Safari (windy handle one) that i really should part with as I have too many.

It was over 3k new a number of years ago, 1600 Euro and it's yours.

It's in France though Whistle 2003 Zambezi Silver TD5 110 XS SW overland prepped....
