Beautiful shelter, made easy
The Homecamp Touring Tent will help you adventure more often. Based on a classic Sibley tent design, they are the perfect tent for camping with kids, festival camping or more rugged adventures.
Not too big, not too small
The Touring Tent is aimed at those on the move and is the best of all worlds in terms of size vs weight and strength. At 4.5m diameter, it can accommodate seven people comfortably on single mattresses. It’s a luxurious tent for a couple with extra room for gear or a cozy woodfire stove, and the perfect sized tent for a growing family.
Quick and easy to pitch
You can dispense of the instructions after your first time setting up the Touring Tent as its such a simple design. Roll the tent out, peg it in and then there are just two poles – a centre pole and an A-frame pole for the entrance. Each section of the pole is connected to each other via an internal wire system that guides the parts of the pole into place for a quick and easy pitch – you literally can’t go wrong. Once your poles are in place, it’s just a question of pegging in your guy ropes and you are set to camp.
Lightweight but tough
We have used a specially woven 220 GSM cotton/poly fabric that although relatively lightweight (compared to our Classic line), it’s robust and durable. Because it’s made from cotton and polyester it is much stronger than a comparable 100% cotton canvas at the same weight. It’s less likely to tear under the stress of high winds and as long as the tent is pitched correctly this tent will stand firm in stormy weather where other tents fail. We have double-stitched the seams, gussets, and all the stress points for extra durability.
Canvas without the hassle
Mould is a constant threat to 100% cotton tents and can destroy the canvas and the higher the humidity the more problems can occur. Our canvas is mildew-resistant and yet still breathes just like a cotton canvas with little or no condensation in the tent. Because of this, The Touring Tent could be a good choice for subtropical or tropical zones.
Made to hot tent
Our canvas is a flame-resistant fabric certified by OEKO-TEX® and EU Ecolabel. With the right precautions and a stove jack (or flashing kit), this tent is suitable for a hot tent set up – we recommend a medium or large Winnerwell stove for this sized tent.
The Touring Tent features a zip-in/ zip-out groundsheet which is handy for cleaning and air ventilation as well as easy transportation.
Enjoy the breeze and say no to insects
This tent also has a ‘double-wall’ feature, so that you can zip off the floors and roll up the outer canvas wall and expose a second wall made entirely from mosquito netting. The secondary mesh wall acts as a barrier between you and insects (and other wildlife!), so you can enjoy the view and cross breeze. The Touring Tent has a sewn-in mesh door made from very high-quality mosquito netting that won’t end up ripping (a common problem with other tents). All five windows are also protected from insects with the same mesh.
Broken zips are an annoying and expensive problem. We use custom made YKK zips and because of this, to date, we have had zero problems with zips. We use custom made reflective 750 Paracord guy rope along with easy-to-use metal tensioners that don’t break. The tent comes with a set of heavy-duty twisted ‘rebar’ style stakes that won’t bend if they encounter a rock. We use stainless steel D rings for the groundsheet pegs and signature, custom-made Homecamp plastic buckles and toggles. Our mosquito mesh is heavy-duty. We have designed oversized, ‘struggle-free’ bags for your tent, pegs and poles. There are two extra-large internal pockets for safe storage of valuables such as car keys and wallet.
We do all of this because we dislike seeing products break and the wasteful ‘return and replace’ cycle of inferior products that creates landfill. Like the rest of our range, this tent is built-to-last.
