The Steezy Kiwi Hardshell rooftop tent has changed the game for camping in New Zealand. It is the most fuel efficient (14cm high without racks), easy to use and well build hard shell rooftop tent on the New Zealand market. At Steezy Kiwi, we pride ourselves in being one of the highest quality rooftop tent brands in the world, with our tents being built with high quality materials, to a very high standard, enabling it to withstand our hearty New Zealand climate. The hard shell rooftop tent can be set up within a minute, making camping trips stress free, giving you more time for hanging out, sports, exploring, cooking or the cheeky beer or wine.

The hardshell rooftop tent is built with a thick 350 g/sm canvas with a PU coating. This means they can withstand sea spray, hot sunny days and some savage winds without stretching or damaging the canvas (stretching is very common with cheaper canvas). All zips are made with Japanese YKK zippers (not cheaper SBS), for long lasting and smooth zipping. The base and roof is made from high quality Aluminium, including the corners (no plastic corners which are prone to leaking).
