Dissatisfied with the tents available on the market, James Baroud began developing his own hard-shell and folding tents over 20 years ago and since then they have stood for innovative and practical solutions. From the regular use of the rooftop tents during off-road tours and rallies by the company owners results in continuous development and optimization. Many design features and construction details are first found in James Baroud's tents before they were adopted by the competition. will be. James Baroud, based in Porto (Portugal), today exclusively produces rooftop tents, awnings and accessories.

James Baroud tents have the addition of Offroad Tents in their name for a reason. Right from the start, the tents were developed for off-road use. All fastenings, hinges and locks are designed to withstand many years and thousands of kilometers on vibrating slopes without damage. Nothing is undersized here in order to reduce production costs to the detriment of the customer. This can also be seen in small details such as the mounting brackets for mounting on the cross members. Even those who only transport their tent on the road will benefit from the stable and durable construction. 

Those who are off-road cannot always choose the weather and where to stay. That is why the tents are constructed in such a way that they can easily withstand heavy rain and cold in Iceland as well as heavy sandstorms and high temperatures in the Sahara. 

James Baroud (Porto, Portugal) is so convinced of the quality of his hard shell tents that the manufacturer grants a five-year guarantee on the roof shell, tent fabric and mechanics. Spare parts, including complete tent fabrics, are also available for many years.

With the Falcon, James Baroud is launching a 270 degree awning for the 2019 season. The fabric used is identical to the fabric that James Baroud uses for his tents. The frame of the awning is made of aluminum, the bracket is made of iron.

The awning has a total weight of approx. 29 kg. When closed, the awning is 250 cm long, 17 cm wide and 20 cm high. It can be mounted on the Rhino-Rack, the AEV Roof Racks as well as on roof racks. The two fixing brackets supplied are attached to the C-rails on the back of the awning with screws. The other side of the bracket is then attached to the roof rack. 

A set of three side panels and a mosquito net set are available as accessories to match the awning. When closed, the awning is packed in a three-part truck tarpaulin, which is closed over its length with Velcro. At the ends it is also secured vertically with tension belts.
