Wheel steps

Anyone got one of these? Any good? I’ve got of those folding plastic steps at the minute but it isn’t strong enough for me plus an Oztent!

That looks a good idea Thumbs Up

Sorry, no experience of one, but I can see this being an Oztent / Roofrack access issue solver

I carry a 'hop up' to help with stowing my Oztent. Beyond that though, it's one of the most useful things that I take camping. Darren

I use one of these for roof access, stable, packs away ok and very useful for camping trips. Can be used as a stove stand, washing up stand or an extra table.

I've got a few of those, but it is too big for the space I have 2007 110 TDCi Station Wagon XS

You must be a contortionist if can stand on a tyre whilst hefting an Oztent!

My transport arrangement is end-loading though, and having a nice stable platform to do it from makes it much easier.

The roof bars are from First Four Off-Road. They come galvanised and I've painted them black.

The box is an Ozpod that was made specifically for the tent. I don't think they're available anymore, though. Darren

Thanks for the reply.
Shame about the roof box. Been looking for a roof box for ages but just can't find one that is suitable for an Oztent RV5
