- Have read all the previous posts which mention this tent but am still unsure as to how sturdy/rugged this tent is. Has anyone used one in very strong winds/storms? (Can't see any reason why it wouldn't be as rugged as say the Freedom or SC tourers?)
- How quick are they to put up compared to single pole touring tents?
- Do you have to take the fly off each time you pack it away?

Drew T,
I have a turbo 240 and i can testify to the construction and strength of the tent. Many people comment on the speed of erection as well as colapse.
We bought it after a 4X4 show about a year ago, have camped in some very poor storms in the blue mountains in Sydney as well as the Vic high country.
If i remember correctly their was blurb about it in as 4x4 Australia mag about March / April last year, it also got a good write-up then.
Back then we paid about $800 app.

Hope this helps.

We've got the 300. It's easy to erect & pack. You must remove the fly, as you asked.

I cannot comment on storm worthiness.

As far a speed compared to a centre pole tent, centre pole wins hands down every time.

Depending on the model you choose, you will find that because of the perimeter frame set up, you have good useable room inside the tent.

We have bought the 300 as an extra to our BIG tent.
Haven't camped in it as yet so I can't comment on it's weather suitability etc but from people who I have spoken to that own them, and have experienced bad weather in them, say they are great in all weather.
As it will be used just by myself at times, I put it up and took it down myself and both were pretty easy and rather quick too.
Naturally it would be easier with someone helping you but it went up pretty quickly and the same pulling it down and not as hard to pack away by myself as I thought it would be.
Admittedly I have only done it once but was rushing to get it down as there was a very bad storm brewing (hail forecast etc) at the time and I was rushing but got it packed away no probs at all.
I have to wait till March to give it a good work out, but so far what I have seen am impressed and I like it and that's all that matters really.

(I never get lost because everyone tells me where to go)
