Will an Oztent fit inside a Defender 90?
Considering getting an Oztent RV-3 or RV-4 . They look good but the bag looks massive. Does anyone have one? What do you think? Will it fit inside a Defender 90?

Thanks.

I could barely fit it in my 110 so I would suggest not Smile

mine is an RV5 but I think they are all the same length? They are 202cm long.

Thanks.

Crikey. That is big then. I already have a roof tent and I fear that sticking this on top may put me over the weight limit.

If you have a RTT then I am not sure how you would fit the Oztent on as well. I assume the tent takes the full width of your roof/rack which would make fitting the Oztent at an additional 30 or so cm would be a challenge.

Think it may be one or the other.

I've got a Tentbox Cargo, so it has an additional set of roof bars on top of the tent's aluminium shell, giving you space to carry large items, like bikes, canoes, or similar.

The RV1 is shorter at about 1,6m. I think it's the only one this short (and of course, also it's smaller when erected).

you will notice the RV1 shown is the 'Tag-along' which yes is 1.6m but stands taller than the RV1 tent, so you can stand up in it. Also support frame is on the outside. No longer available to buy these days , but a very versatile tent .

My RV1 fits inside the back of my 90, but it has to be put in diagonally and touches the bulkhead and rear of the tub. If it’s larger than an RV1, it’s going to have to go outside the vehicle realistically. Charlie

My RV4 would just fit into my Lightweight between the driver & passenger, with one end touching the windscreen and the other just inside the rear window of the canvas. However, on a 90SW the rear door glass might prevent this option.

https://oztent.co.uk/products/oztent-rv4 says that the packed length is 204cm so it's easy to check.

As others have said - only the discontinued RV1 is any useful amount shorter when packed (160cm). The (also discontinued) RV2 was 4cm shorter when packed. But both of these are much smaller tents than the RV4.

For comparison, here's the RV1 on a 2m Frontrunner rack:


And here's the RV4 on the same rack:

Pretty much the same as above. I have an RV4 and strap it to the inside of the roof in Miffy (110 CSW). It will not fit inside a 90.

But...

My OzTent RS1 does fit across the back seats of Miffy so will fit into a 90 Thumbs Up

And it is brilliant. Comfy mattress and you could cosily fit two adults in it if you really wanted to. It is incredibly roomy with just me in it and I am not by any stretch a willow withy Rolling Eyes
