Thanks for your info..
I was going to go and get one later in the week. Had a good look at them at the Sydney
4x4 show, and was impressed. However, if they don't perform 'in the field' we might have to rethink. It was the RV4 model I was looking at too.
Our old touring type tent let us down in Tassie, so it's time to update. However, I note all the new 'touring' type tents don't have the floor wrapping up the wall like our current one. Only about 150mm but enough the keep heavy water out. I think our current one was made in NZ.
Have had a look at Southern Cross
...but very pricey!!

I looked at the southern cross
as well signman and I found that the Idea of the RV4 seemed more practicle and the awning was great to back the car up to. I dont want to portray that the Oz tent is no good, plenty of people rave about them and I have friends that own them and are 100% happy, but I must admit I am wondering if I would have been better to spend that little bit extra for the southern cross

If you are looking for a good replacement for your old NZ made touring tent check out www.kiwicamping.co.nz We have the Resort 129 model and have used it all over Oz both outback and coastal. No leaks or drips in the morning. Because of our climate here those sort of things get sorted very quickly. They dispatch to Aust because I was sent an extra wind break from NZ. Can check out anything you want to know as they are 1 km up road from me though I have no connection to them.
