New models have alloy knuckles and feet. (Sounds like Robocop.)

Yes, common problem. We have a couple in our club. Other than that, seems a good tent. At least they've fixed it so it shows they care.

Cheers

Yep, we have 2. partner works for Aussies and all new black wolf tents now come with alloy joins/hinges. Black Wold have fantastic service and when ever we have had an inquiry they have been only too happy to help out. Never had a problem with our joins, however we have swapped over as we don't want to encounter a problem out in the middle of nowhere.

We've used our tents in all conditions with no problems. Have now purchased the extended awning/annexe with 4WD access and it was bloddy fantastic in the 4 days of rain we enountered last time we went away!

Anybody who's interested and local to Morn Peninsula, ask for Jason at Aussies in Cranbourne and he'll be able to help you out - he speaks with the black wolf guy almost every other day and will be able to let you know not only what's around, but what's coming.

I was told they are developing a screen room to fit in deluxe fly; existing front/side panels will be able to be zipped on one or more sides if desired. Likely to be out in mid-year.

What are the best prices on these tents? Aussie Disp have quoted $800 for the 240 x 240 or $900 for the 300 x 300. Deluxe fly about $400; side panels $169/pair; front panel $129. That means, for a 300 with the lot, about $1600. (Makes you wonder whether to get 2 tents instead, as Jodi has.) Has anyone heard of somewhere cheaper?

One other question: with the walls attached to the deluxe fly, is the covered awning area mozzie-proof? The side panels attach to the poles on the outside of the tent, which leaves a gap of a few inches between the tent and the side panel. The panels are supposed to have a flap to block this gap. Does it work?

Cheers,
Des

Hi Des,

We have two tents more out of luck and good contacts than through a need for them. If you give Jas a call at Aussies in Cranbourne (not sure where you are based) he pretty much knows all there is to know about them and what he doesn't know he'll find out for you. Ph. 03 5996 6548. He's there till 5 tonight and then again on Friday.

We have the side panels, but as yet do not have the front. Family and friends have since purchased these tents through Aussie's and we have all taken trips together with no probs. We even set the tent up outside at home and the kids give them a run for their money with slumber parties and general running around (with the usual care taken by excited kids) and there is yet to be a problem.

I don't think the front would be Aussie proof with all the panels attached, however we generally solve problems like this with mozzie coils or a quick spray with surface spray near any gaps to deter them from passing through (also works a treat on fly screens and gaps at home). Jas would be able to clear up the mozzie question for you.

Quick ammendment - I meant mozzie proof rather than Aussie proof...

Thanks Jodi. I would actually like the awning to be both mozzie- and Aussie-proof, but will settle for the latter! This really matters because my partner has a severe reaction to mozzie bites. Tried coils, tried everything - if there is a mozzie within cooee it will find her and the bites drive her crazy. We are away for a few days but might ring Jas next week.
The gap I am concerned about is between the tent and side panel when attached to deluxe fly. The side panels have flaps that are supposed to fill it, but I'm not sure how effective they are.
Cheers,
Des

How can a bloody tent be a _turbo_ tent!!!???

Does it leap out of the 4WD as soon as you stop and erect itself?

When you mention to the wife "Perhaps it's time we headed for home dear" does this wondrous item put your bedding away, fold itself up and, quick as a flash, ensconce itself back into the bag again...?

A confused - but SUPERCHARGED!!!
