Introducing the Tuatara Plateau, a hard-shell rooftop tent for 2-3 people. This tent showcases distinctive curved weather shields, proven successful in our Kiwi Camping dome tents for over three decades. This design serves to boost airflow and minimize condensation. Created for small SUVs, hatchbacks, and Utes, its compact shell design cuts fuel consumption. Despite its size, the interior space remains generous, ensuring comfort without compromise.


  • Weather Shields: Curved rain fly directs water away, reducing condensation. The new window design provides year-round ventilation in any weather.
  • Strong-Waterproofing: PU10,000mm waterproof rating on all fabrics, UV 50+ rated, anti-mould coating. Double stitched and fully seam sealed.  
  • Blackout Fly: Sleep in longer with 420D Ripstop Poly-oxford blackout fly, and stay cooler inside
  • Fast-drying Fabric: 280g ripstop polyester body dries quickly, resists mold, and is highly waterproof without pre-seasoning.
  • Durability:  Double-stitched, seam-sealed seams and windows ensure high quality, tested on other Kiwi Camping tents.
  • Comfortable Telescopic Ladder:  Ergonomic flat ladder design, comfy for bare feet.
  • Heavy-duty Frame: 22/25mm poles with aluminium honeycomb floor for a heavy-duty frame.  
  • Proven Design: Fibreglass poles extend windows through power mesh sleeves.
  • Efficient Windows: 2-in-1 windows open fully without separate zipping.
