The legendary Alu-Cab roof tent in classic black.
The proven Alu-Cab roof tent is one of the most popular and best hard shell roof tents on the market. Made entirely of aluminium, it withstands even the most difficult conditions and can always be opened and closed again in no time at all.
The tent is 2.30m long, 1.40m wide and weighs 78kg. Unfolded, it results in a comfortable interior height of 1.60m. LED lights and USB plugs make this tent a comfortable and perfect place to sleep.
The new version Gen 3.1 with the bevelled and slightly rising upper shell and the sides drawn in the front area is now designed much more elegantly than the previous version and cannot be compared with other aluminium roof tents. The exciting change between aluminium quintet checker plate and smooth aluminium sheet gives the roof tent additional robustness and attractiveness. The current shape is more aerodynamic and offers even less resistance to the wind. This results in improved driving behaviour, especially at higher speeds, and reduced wind noise with more economic fuel consumption.
Thanks to two integrated C-rails that now run over the entire length, the Alu-Cab Gen 3.1 can be used with numerous optional accessories for transporting loads, installing a solar panel or as a view-platform. This makes it a perfect travel and transport companion, which can be customized according to customer requirements.
The newly developed telescpoic ladder is simple and securely inserted at the desired point for access and can be perfectly adjusted to the height. With the practical bag, it can be stowed in the tent in seconds and, thanks to its compact design, does not take up any unnecessary space.
Advantages of the new Alu-Cab roof tent
The Alu-Cab roof tent Expedition Gen 3.1 can not only be perfectly combined with the Alu-cab hardtops, but it is also the first choice of all travellers who want to leave their roof tent permanently on the vehicle. Aluminium is durable, corrosion-resistant and does not age due to the influence of UV radiation. In addition, aluminium is insenitive to temperature flucuations, debris and tree contact at the most lead to scratches or dents which, unlike GRP tents, do not leave any holes or damage in the tent shell that require repairing. An aluminium roof tent is the best choice for anyone who would like to add accessories and transport solutions.
The attachment of brackets and cross members for the use of headlights, jacks, shovels, antennas, canisters, solar panels, etc. is easy. Athletes can easily transport theier equipment (kayaks, bicycles, skis) on the roof. Additional storage boxes can also be integrated. Another big advantage: sleeping bags, pillows and bedding can of course be stored and remain in the closed tent.
The tent fabric can easily be cleaned with water, soapy water or (if necessary) mildew and stain remover (mixed with water). Depending on the type of stain or dirt, apply in the order listed. Be careful not to use the stain and mildew remover directly on the canvas and not to aggressively rub the material. This could ruin the impregnation. (Subsequent impregnation is recommended)
A waterproofing spray helps to keep the waterproofing stable. However, make sure that this spray is suitable for organic materials (canvas)! Follow the instructions and repeat the process until you get the expected result.
To keep the aluminum shell clean you can simply mix soap and water and wipe over the outer shell. If mosquitoes or other things get stuck in the front, as with the car, they can be quickly removed with insect remover - can be processed like normal car paint.
Moving mechanical parts:
Simply use a multifunctional spray over mechanically moving areas to protect them from corrosion - WD-40 is suitable here.
To keep the electrical parts inside and outside the tent in good shape, you can treat them with a contact spray.
Even good seams wear out after a long period of use and can leak. This can be easily remedied with seam sealing.
How do I store my roof tent correctly?
If you plan to store the tent for a long period of time, it is important to take every possible precaution to avoid condensation.
1) Take out the mattress and store it in a dry place
2) On a dry day, air the tent before closing
