Eezi-Awn Unveils Sword Roof Top Tent

The roof top tent designed for family camping

Overlanders who camp with family, meet the all-new Sword roof top tent from Eezi-Awn. Equipt Expedition Outfitters, the exclusive US-based distributor for Eezi-Awn, expands their line of RTTs with this new family-size offering. If you’re the type of overlander who always has the family in tow, a roof top tent of this size can be a game-changer in streamlining your camp setup. The large footprint of the tent easily accomodates two adults and two kids… or dogs…

Sword Roof Top Tent

As opposed to more standard clamshell or pop-up designs, the Eezi-Awn Sword roof top tent has an easy time accommodating two adults and two kids. How? Well, the Sword’s one-piece hinge mechanism pops up with gas struts in just seconds. Then, unfold a hidden platform  to provide the additional room you need from this tent’s footprint. It’s a pop-up and clamshell tent folded into one.

Durable rip-stop canvas frames out the tent, along with double entry privacy mesh panels. Additionally, both the roof and floor and fully insulated to keep you and the family at a comfortable temperature all night long.

We know much of the appeal that comes from a hardshell roof top tent is the quick setup and takedown. A single person can quickly unclip the only two latches on the Sword and easily lift the shell to open. Then, just push down gently to close and lock the tent. The full process takes only seconds to complete.

The tent’s ladder stores underneath for easy access. The tent also includes an internal LED Light, two storage pockets, a USB port, and a 70mm high-density laminated mattress. The extrior of the tent also features a track mounting system to hold other accessories.
