DC2 Streamline Aluminium Hard Shell Roof Top Tent



Desert Cruiser 2 exclusive to Intents Outdoors in NZ

Limited stock left. Order now to make sure you get your post lockdown summer sorted. (When current stock sold out the next shipment ETA is early Dec.)

If you’re looking for the freedom and flexibility to head off road and go bush, or take that laid back summer roadie you’ve always been dreaming of, or buckle up for a last minute overnighter then the DC2 is for you.

This innovative next-generation aluminium hard shell roof top tent boasts an unmatched hybrid design, the lowest profile on the market, and effortless gas strut assisted 60-second set up. Its tough weatherproof construction provides protection against NZ’s harsh weather; top-mounted gear racks accommodate your surfboard, kayak or other toys; and a range of accessories like annex room, side awning and winter thermal insulator means you can customise the tent setup to fit your needs!

Ideal for overlanding, off-roading or simply heading to your favorite camping ground, the DC2’s deceptively simple yet very well thought out design is engineered for ultimate user convenience, top performance and excellent value. 

Now in NZ and exclusive to Intents Outdoors, the DC2 is made by Wildland, a renowned manufacturer in the business for more than 20 years. This is the original and not a cheap copy. A global product now taking the world by storm as sold by international outdoor specialists like Drifta Stockton (AUS), Freespirit (USA), and Jackal (SA). 

Available in 120cm and 140cm width models ... the new shipment tents have a black anti-scratch top (not the silver alu top as shown in pics). 

All the features and more for around half the price of comparable models, we believe the DC2 is the best value aluminium hard-shell tent on the market.
