    Hi

    I'm in the process in buying a Roof top tent(RTT) for me overland trip from London to South Africa. I found the prices for these tents to high for what I'm willing to spend. Which lead me to researching different avenues to obtain a good quality RTT at a reasonable price. I ended up with a manufacturer in China that supply tents to ARB tents, TJM, Austrack Camper and Primus.

    The picture below is their Standard 1400mm wide RTT which the price below are based on.


    View attachment 24611 RT 01

    I've been in contact with them in recent months and they can make the tent in 320g Ripstop Canvas in sand colour which is better then some of the RTT you get in the UK. Below is some of the spec:
    [TABLE="width: 650"]

    Type
    2 - 3 Person Tent

    Layers
    Single

    Fabric
    Canvas

    Pole Material
    Aluminium

    Color
    Sand/

    Material
    320g Ripstop Canvas

    Ladder
    Aluminium material

    Size/width
    1.2m/1.4m/1.65m/1.8m/2.2m

    Optional accessories
    Annex or Awning

    OEM
    We could offer OEM service.

    Warranty
    Normally one year warranty.
    [/TABLE]


    So for the group buy we require the following:

    • buy 10 RTT.
    • pay 20% deposit for them to start
    • pay 100% before RTT get shipped


    Cost for 10 RTT

    • RTT $ 3800 £2680.97
    • Shipping $ 150 £105.83
    • UK TAX £[email protected] 20% £536.20
    • Port handling fee (estimate) £560

    Total £3883 = £388.30 per tent. This don't include shipping from the port to home address. They do different RTT sizes also with the entry cover like the below with annex( DON'T KNOW IF BIGGER TENTS WILL COST MORE):

    If you're interested put your name to the list. PM me with your requirements. I want to order before end of March.

    They will ship it to Felixstowe Port. Which is an hours drive form me. I haven't researched cost from the port per courier. But sure something can be arranged.

    Are you sure they are canvas as they look similar to the prime tents which are nylon.

    They look the same as the one i bought about about 6 years ago. Good for the money. They want to be delivered in a crate as they can be damaged in transit.

    I have asked them for a few different prices.

    kingtom

    I have asked to send some photo over of the canvas tents. Ratrace is right that we want to place a order in for just canvas I belief it keeps it a bit warmer in the tent.


    Also someone pointed out that I missed import duty 12% = £321.72 make the RT01 £420.48 per tent.

    Are you looking at the rt01 or the rt05-01 ? They look to be very different tents.

    Also, can we find out price for the rt05-05?

    The difference between the two is the cover over the entrance to the tent. RT01 don't have this cover, where the RT05 has the cover. Also the room on the bottom will be bigger with the RT05. I think the entrance cover to the tent is a better option which is the RT05.

    Ill be looking at the RT05-02 that is 140cm wide. The RT05-05 is 220cm. There is the RT05-03cm 165 and RT05-04 180cm in between. So a few options.

    Just be mind full the annex was never included in the original price.

    I've asked for prices on the RT05-05.


    Just waiting for the reply.

    a chap was selling them on ebay, don't know if he still is. presume he bought a load from china and stuck his bit on top. i had to send one back because of damage, the replacement wasn't perfect but these are not nice things to keep posting about! so i lived with it.. hence my comments that they need shipping in crates or a pallet ideally.

    These are pictures they send over this morning of the canvas tents.

    I do see a difference between the canvas and polyester. The canvas looks to be a better quality and solid. I know there is a few manufacturers from China that all use the same design. Wincar manufacture 50 000 tents a month.

    Prices for RT 01 with annex is $400
    Price for RT05 02 with annex is $488.25

    Still waiting for the other sizes prices to come through
