G'day all, Thinking of getting one and would like to hear from anyone who has knowledge of these. I think it might be a model 2000.
Thanks people, Damien

They have the same manufacturer that ARB had I believe, same as other have had too, but have had some small modifications to the packaging and covers to make buyers life easier. Ironman try to ensure of quality control, which is the same for Australian marketers of Chinese product. The guy who is responsible for the quality control is an EO member for much of their product and tests it personally.

Ironman have come a long way in recent years, selling some products to the US military and have gained recognition for what they can supply.
Cheers,

Not sure if you realise but the ARB 'special' that is running at the moment for $1750 - is for the:

Simpson 111 rooftop tent

PLUS

The rooftop tent annexe

PLUS

An arb rollout side awning

thats a saving of 'about' $500 - if you were to buy them seperately

Of course this deal is only of value if you are actually wanting an annexe and an awning I realise that :-)

Have a look at these ones on Ebay ($750). I have had a look at them and they seem OK. They are made in South Africa and the bloke that imports them says they are made in the same factory as Hannibal tents. Not sure if that is correct but they did look OK to me. Pretty reasonable bloke even if his factory does look a bit dodgy (tin shed!!!!) He has been there for a fair while and I think it would be a safe bet. He also sells awnings ($250) which I was going to get until a very generous mate bought me an Ironman awning for my 50th (good bloke hey!!!). Very happy with the Ironman product. I was still considering a rooftop tent but don't think it is possible to leave bedding and pillows in the tent during transit which for me kind of defeats the purpose. Good luck with your search.
