Information and FAQ about campervan tents

The good reasons for Van tents: This is a real ideal way to add on some extra room to the vehicle.

A tent for your van can be used in many ways, such as using it as a exchange or shower room - for vans having a shower installed at the rear. Also very useful when you have a set up with a rear/ outdoor kitchen as the tailgate tent can be your sheltered extra space.

Note: All tents shall be used in good or reasonable weather conditions and not when torrential weather is expected.Make sure your secure the tents proper to the ground. A spray of rain is no problem- however in case your facing weather or heavy rain its recommended to take your tent down. If you tent got wet- make sure you try the tent before packing it away or very shortly after to avoid unwanted odours.


Type of tents

tailgate REAR tents: This  type of tents are our most often sold camper tents. The are light, quick and easy to set up and take up very little space when packed away. This is because they are hold up by the vehicle rear lift up door and therefore do not require any additional poles and frames to erect. With often only 3-6 kg weight- they store way in even the smallest camper and can be set up with little effort by a single person.

A great choice if space is premium and a smaller area is desired to gain. This tents are often the same sqm space or slightly larger as your tailgate self is.

Available for many different van manufacturer rand and models. 

barn door rear tents: For a few popular vans such as VW T5 / T6, Sprinter and Ducato there are solutions available when you have the side opening rear door set up. This tent and annexes are ideal to stop sun and light rain entering and also often the favourable choice for rear outside showers to achieve shelter and privacy.

The set up is quite quick- but on high roof vans you shall keep in mind that you need to be able to reach up high during set up.

free standing tents: Most suitable for people who set up the camp and staying for a few days- the tents can be used to secure your campsite and can be left in behind while leaving for a day trip. They are also  most suitable to not only create a extra living space, they also can be the ideal location for additional sleeping spaces.Free-standing tents for vans have a "extra joining skirt" where you can couple the main tent to the vehicle with.

This tent are offered in different sizes and are available for the back or the side of the van. The classic free standing tents have a pole or frame systems- however the latest tents offer instead of poles  air inflatable solutions, which makes teh set up easy and faster.

General this tents do take up more space when packed away and have a average weight from 12-25kg.
