he Explorer is a hard shell rooftop tent available from James Baroud. It features a fiberglass fortified polyester shell combined with a five (5) year warranty.

The Explorer hard shell, roof top tent offers a new way to look at camping and 4WD adventure holidays. With larger internal space the Explorer provides sleeping space for two adults and a child. In the event of hot weather the design of the Explorer allows for air to circulate freely through the tent through the screened windows and openings. A solar powered vent built into the upper hull creates extra ventilation. This unit even allows for the blades to be reversed turning it into an exhaust fan. Using this fan will help avoid condensation that may build up in the tent.

A clever alternative to bulky, traditional tents and a fantastic solution for 4WD touring, the Explorer roof top tent is an exciting new way to get a comfortable and secure sleeping space and create new freedom in the way you travel. There is ample storage inside with two removable storage pockets and a ceiling storage net. The tent also comes with a removable and rechargeable LED torch, luggage rack integrated into hull with loading blockers and 6 x anchor points

All James Baroud roof top tents fit to the roof bars of most vehicles and can be removed and stored when not needed and are covered by a 5 year guarantee on the fabric, hull and mechanism.

Automatic Opening
The opening of the Explorer Evolution is a simple task thanks to the two ALKO gas-charged struts that automatically open the tent when the latches are unhooked. Closing the tent is just as simple! The canvas has a built-in rubber band which helps keep it retracted when stowing away.

The Outer Shell
The outer shell of the Explorer Evolution utilizes fiberglass fortified polyester and is one of the thickest shells on the market. There are two air vents with dust filters to help improve air circulation and fight moisture build up. We've also incorporated aerodynamic ribs into the shell which help improve wind noise and fuel economy. These integrated ribs also strengthen the structure ensuring its tough enough for any adventure.

The Fabric
We guarantee you won't find a better fabric on any rooftop tent. All of our tents utilize aluminized polyester with an acrylic coating that is 100% waterproof, breathable, UV resistant, no-perishable, and reflects the sun's rays. This means it will stand up for years of use without ever having an issue! All openings feature mosquito netting, zipper, and velcro fastening.

Interior Lighting
Lighting inside the tent is provided by a rechargeable flashlight with a 12 volt charger. Its designed to be tough with a belt clip and very easy to store. The flashlight has 15 LED lights and an unbreakable polycarbonate lens along with a battery charge indicator.

A fan is built into each hard shell tent we build. This ventilation system can run for 24 hours straight on a single charge when full and is recharged by an integrated solar panel. A second fan propeller with reverse blades is supplied and is designed to act as a fan.

These tents come with a five-year manufacturer warranty.
