ARB Esperance Roof Top Tent Hard Shell


ARB is a brand we have worked with for some time.  It’s been established long enough to know what works and what doesn’t.  Their latest roof tent design really excels at set up times and pack down times.  Coupled with a hard shell and gas struts, it demonstrates the quality we are used to with ARB.  If you are looking for the ultimate package, then this might be for you.  We are able to talk through mounting options and we have a bespoke fitting service too, based in our hanger in Sussex.

Named after one of Western Australia’s most renowned coastal environments, the Esperance from ARB is a super lightweight, slimline rooftop tent with a contemporary hard shell design. It was engineered for quick and effortless operation, which is achieved with an internal telescopic ladder, gas strut assisted opening and three push-lock ratchet straps for closure.
