The ShippShape Shack package is ideal for people on the move. It’s incredibly fast and easy to set up and pack away by one person.

There are no poles or pegs to set the main tent up, making the ShippShape the fastest and easiest roof top tent to erect and pack away bar none.

The travel cover is a water and dust proof zip-on PVC unit with 6 compression anti flap straps (3 each side) to help prevent the cover from flapping while driving regardless of how much (or little) is stored under the cover. All your bedding and extra canvas walls can be easily stored under the cover during transit.

This cover unzips on three sides (left, right and rear) and remains attached to the front of the tent bed base and simply folds over the vehicle windscreen (or the draw bar if fitted to a trailer) while the tent is set up.

The side of the opened tent features an attached awning / wall that is 2.1m long (same as tent bed base) and drops 1.9m (standard) to the ground for an instant privacy and weather shelter.

This awning / wall can also be propped up on 2 poles to act as an incredibly handy awning, that is 2.1m long (along the vehicle) by 3.3m (out from the vehicle) for shade from sun and rain.

Under this awning / wall is where the Bush Hut walls and Homestead room are attached.

As standard, a 2.8m long zip is attached to the front and rear of the tent to allow the optional front and rear awnings to be attached. These awnings then cover the rear of of your vehicle or trailer and the front of your vehicle or trailer making a perfect spot for retreating from the weather.
