Good buy, you will not regret it, you will be amazed at the space you have, with tent up front and side panels,
the the canopy up to back of motor, like 3 rooms. clinking teacups

Good stuff, glad you're sorted. Sounds as if they had plenty of tents on display, that's good for comparison. Sadly that's not the case with the majority of traders amongst the 4x4 community, for they only tend to display their wares at shows. It's obviously a matter if space, or rather lack of it, especially as a lot of them work from home or a storage facility on a trading estate. That's life!

So, it's erection time in the back garden today then? Rain or no rain, the race is on to see how fast you can pitch it. Stopwatch at the ready. thumbsup

Yes, the Norwich Camping guys have a huge set up. Literally hundreds of tents set up on display, a big garden centre (if you like that sort of thing), loads of camping gear, a cafe, little 'pub', farm shop. We had a great time nosing around all the shiney stuff we can overload the car with doh

We've promised ourselves that we'll not buy anything else until we get the new car and speak to the guys about set up. Let's see how well we hold off!

Nice one Mudsligger, I feel the makings of an 'Oztent Club' on the horizon!

I guess I'm going have to invite Norwich Camping & Leisure to trade at ADVENTURE OVERLAND SHOW 2013.

Definitely worth a try Tom. They certainly have the kind of kit that overlanders would use, and they have a lot in stock (all the Oz tent sizes and the jet tents). They sell Maggiolloni too but tend not to stock them the chap was saying but will get them in as and when.

Could be worth telling him that 2 of your members have bought his kit this weekend ... that might tempt him to turn up as you clearly attract Oz Tent lovers thumbsup

Just wanted to do a quick review of the RV4 ....

I've never put up a tent in my life before. And I mean NEVER. Despite this the claim of 'a 30 second tent' really is close to the truth! The first time I tried to put the RV4 up, on my own with wife just watching, it took me under 2 minutes. This was despite never even having taken it out of the bag before Very Happy

The 2 mins doesn't include staking down - I guess doing full stakes would take 5 mins extra. And didn't include doing the side or front panels (not tried those yet, back garden isn't big enough affraid )

We are so pleased with our tent - just need some warm weather no so we can go away for a night and test it out in anger.

So big thumbsup for the Oz Tents from us!

Already sorted, thanks for thinking of me though. thumbsup

Yes, having them there would be good for the show as a decent display would be to everybody's benefit. We'll see what transpires.

Mmmm, some nice weather would be good, fed up with grey skies.

Hi there,

We carry our Oztent RV4 and all the other Tent Camping gear in a Roof box (Floor Saver, Flysheet, goanna Stretchers etc). - as the Landrover is a swb 88" I found that a Chrysler Voyager Roofbox will store it all out of sight, secure & dry

Just bolted it onto the Roofrack (Mounted onto the cage as ours is a full canvas tilt

I sometimes use a Wheel Step to get into the box or just the front wing and tailgate suffice

Thanks Smile

The Photo was taken last October 2014 when we celebrated its 50th Anniversary with a month in Morocco

We so want to go back for longer! - The Tent performed fantastically and the whole trip was an eye opener. Even across Midelt & the Atlas, the Roof Box & everything stayed firmly attached and nothing came loose.

Don't try to save money on the cheaper copies. The Oztent is the best by far. They are pretty common around here and stand up to everything that the weather can throw at them. Just one more example of how us "Colonists" are superior to the "Motherland." lol!

Can't argue with that, Oz and South African gear of course.

I have purchased some of the add on's now really surprised how hard it is to deal with the traders to get a deal for multiple parts and how rude they can be, isn't selling about being competitive, Norwich camping seem to be the only company that realise that.

Yep, some certainly more abrupt than others.

Can't mention any names which is frustrating. Wish at times I was an ordinary Joe who had no connection to 4x4 shows/companies of any type, that way I could speak my mind. As it is I can only repeat - some can be idiots, others are sound as a pound - and of those, haven't heard a bad thing said about Norwich Camping, BOAB or Tuff Trek.
