Product Review: The Alu-Cab Expedition Tent – GEN3

The Alu-Cab Expedition Tent

It’s no surprise that the new Alu-Cab Expedition Tent (Gen3) has become one of the most sought-after overlanding tents on the market. It’s more aerodynamic and lighter than its predecessor, plus it’s about 100 mm wider (at the shoulders) – more spacious too.

The unit’s base and roof are insulated with polyethylene closed-cell foam which offers great comfort and outstanding insulation. Nut-slotted rails on the base of the tent allows for easy installation, while our special mounting track along the tent roof allows for easy fitment of  the Alu-Cab load bars. A robust aluminium outer-casing allow you to mount awnings, jacks & other off-road equipment directly to the tent.

Best of all, this is a tent which opens and closes in seconds, with one simple action, and you can access it from three sides. What’s more, its capacious design allows you to leave your bedding when you close up. When designing gear for overland use, we aim to build products which are robust, functional, adaptable and easy-to-use. The Gen3 scores four out of four!

It’s sleeker, more aerodynamic, giving the tent not only a better look but less wind drag.  The Gen 3 is lighter than its predecessor.  It’s also wider insider by 100 mm at the shoulders.  It has a strong aluminum outer casing and base which gives far less chance of possible cracking and can be utilized to mount awnings, jacks & other off-road equipment.
