DC2 Streamline Aluminium Hard Shell Roof Top Tent



Desert Cruiser 2 exclusive to Intents Outdoors in NZ

The Desert Cruiser from Wildland is a patented streamlined aluminium hard shell roof now in NZ and exclusive to Intents Outdoors. A revolutionary design combining the durability of a hard shell roof tent, a low profile, real comfort, one of the easiest set ups you'll see, and the ability to carry your toys up top.

Low profile means less noise, easier driving and maybe the difference between getting into your garage or not.

So quick and easy to set up and pack away with patented gas strut system - less than 2 minutes to set up and pack down. Release the clips and watch gas struts lift the lid on your nest for the night. Comfy mattress and interior for a good nights sleep.

Added bonus with tough aluminium top shell strong enough to carry your toys with extra racks up top for rods, boards, gear, etc. Comes with 2 detachable racks that can be set side to side.

Same model as seen on Drifta site in Aus. Available in 120cm and 140cm widths.

  • streamlined aluminium hard shell top, low profile 18cm height, reduces wind resistance and noise 
  • Aluminium slat frame base reduces weight and prevents condensation
  • low profile and weight makes driving easier with lower centre of gravity compared to standard roof tents
