Introducing the Tuatara Peak – a rooftop tent with an aluminium hardshell and sleek profile. A trailblazer in New Zealand, it has a unique annex room attachment option (available separately). Built to withstand the harshest Kiwi climates, the robust aluminium shell ensures durability. You'll be fully set up within a minute thanks to the swift pop-up gas struts. The innovative 'T' channel system lets you attach accessories directly to the hard shell, while the airflow mechanism allows ventilation even in inclement weather. With ample space and sturdiness, the Tuatara Peak is the ultimate choice for avid adventurers.
