Product Questions
Can you store bedding inside when travelling?
This shouldn't be a problem but just remember when the lid is closed on the Esperance it needs to be closed tight to ensure no water is going to get in.
When the tent is open sideways on the roof rack it gets wider 2100mm, but remains the same length 1520mm. Am I correct in my thinking?
The length of the tent never changes, but goes wider as it opens out as the base opens up.
Can the tent be safely used mounted both ways round, i.e. so it folds out to either the right or the left of the vehicle?
This can only be mounted with the opening on the RHS of the vehicle. This cannot be changed due to specific mounting points.
