PREORDER GREY NOW FOR DELIVERY BY END OF AUGUST 2019The Series 3 Roof Top Tent from Eezi-Awn is the industry benchmark, and continues to be the standard by which all other roof tents are measured. Utilizing a folding platform design, which is the flagship model for Eezi-Awn, this series doubles as a trailer tent and offers a range of sizes to accommodate as little as 2 adults up to a family of 5. It can be mounted for entry facing the back or either side of most vehicles or trailers.
The 1200 is the smallest and lightest tent in the line, perfect for the roof of smaller SUVs, wagons, or trailers.
The 1400 is the most popular size in the line.
The 1600 is very spacious. It requires the support of at least 3 load bars.
The 1800 is the largest single ladder tent in the line. It requires the support of at least 3 load bars.
The 2200 is the largest tent in the line. It requires the support of at least 4 load bars.
If you're looking for even more space, consider upgrading to Eezi-Awn's XKLUSIV Roof Top Tent, which offers an extended roof line (known as the T-Top) and ground-level room for added comfort.

Series 3 FAQs
What is the difference between the Series 3/XKLUSIV tents, and the Jazz/Fun tents?
The Eezi-Awn Series 3 and XKLUSIV roof top tents are the legendary flagship soft shell roof tops tents on the market. They are the benchmark, for robust construction and durability, decades of world travel experience. The Jazz and Fun roof top tents are every bit an Eezi-Awn product, built to a slightly lighter, more economical specification. All the Eezi-Awn tents are built on the same production lines, and use many of the same components. The Jazz/Fun line uses a bit lighter Teflon coated polyester rip-stop material. And because it is lighter, lighter bows, hinges, overhang extrusions, etc. can be used. The side window coverings are incorporated into the rain fly too, to save on materials and labor. The result is a true Eezi-Awn quality product, that compares closely with other tents on the market.
Why does Eezi-Awn use wood panels for their floor instead of a composite material?
There is a very good reason for the wood panels that you see on the Eezi-Awn tents. Not only do they look more classic, it has mostly to do with insulation. Most of the tent producers on the market are using some fashion of aluminum sheeting with a thin insulation sandwiched in between. Aluminum is great at transferring temperature. So when you have a cold exterior surface, and a warm interior surface, you will inevitably end up with condensation on the interior surface. That means your mattress is going to get wet. Some companies offer a "condensation sheet" for their floors. That is not a solution to the issue. The solution is better insulation. The wood panels that Eezi-Awn use are a solid core Moranti plywood. Moranti is very dense, like teak. So dense it will not absorb water. It gives the floor a great insulation value. You do not need a condensation sheet on our tents.
How can I clean the material on this tent?
The material used to make the Series 3 and XKLUSIV tents is made of a a cotton/polyester thread that is wax impregnated before weaving into the rip-stop material. If the material gets stained, wait until completely dry and brush the stained spot with a fine bristle brush. If necessary, use a gentle liquid detergent and lightly scrub the spot. Rinse thoroughly, and let dry.
Do I need to put a repellent on the tent material?
The cotton/polyester thread with wax impregnation makes the tent very water resistant and breathable. Do not apply a repellent to it. That will seal the material and remove it's breath-ability.
Do I need to put a protectant on the cover?
The cover is made of a 700 gram double sided PVC that has been treated with a UV protectant. Each time you wash your cover, you do remove a little of that protect. That leaves the cover more susceptible to the sun. We suggest applying a UV protectant such as 303 Aerospace Protectant for Plastic, Vinyl, and Rubber after each washing.
Is the Rain Fly removable?
Yes. The rain fly is elevated from the main body of the tent to create an air gap between the rain fly and the tent. This is to help keep in cool in the summer, and warm in the winter. The rain fly is attached to the tent with a full set of YKK low temperature buckles that can unclip, and allow you to remove it.
What is the mattress like?
Eezi-Awn builds their mattresses from a high quality 300 weight foam, with a fabric cover. The fine line of building a mattress is to ensure support, but not too soft to compress through, or so hard that it feels like a board. They have found the happy medium.
Can I store sleeping bags inside the tent?
Yes, if you are aware of where to put them. Think of a roof top tent like a giant wood and canvas turnover. There is a void in the middle of the mattress area, on the half of the mattress above the bolted down side of the the tent that is enough area for a couple down sleeping bags and pillows. It needs to be on the bolted down side. If you put it on the side that folds over, all the sleeping gear will slide down to the hinge point and bind up the closing of the tent. Try a few times, and it will make sense.
Why are the Eezi-Awn tents so heavy compared to other tents?
Eezi-Awn walks a fine line between weight conservation and durability. The materials used in the construction of their roof top tents are designed to last a lifetime, if taken care of. A roof top tent endures all the vibration and abrasion that your vehicle does. The tent materials rub against each other constantly. Lighter materials start to fail quickly, as their water proof and UV coatings wear away. Plastic components stress and fail over time. Eezi-Awn doesn't use plastic components in their tents, and they use thicker material and mesh to stand the test of time. Consequently, the tents weigh a bit more. But it's worth it.
What is the warranty on an Eezi-Awn tent?
The short answer is 3 years, against materials and workmanship. The long answer is that our philosophy is this. If it is our fault, we will fix it. If it is your fault, we'll help you fix it. Eezi-Awn tents are built to last. With good care, they will. If something needs addressing, we carry a full line of replacement parts in the US, and we can get anything you need from the factory.
What do I need to put a roof top tent on my vehicle?
Typically, the load bars that come on your vehicle are not up to the task of holding a roof top tent. The load rating on most OEM rack systems are between 100 and 150 pounds. That is roughly what the tent weights, let along a couple occupants. At a minimum, at a good pair of load bars, such as Thule or Yakima produces, that are more sturdy than the ones your vehicle came with. This is a minimum. For a more robust solution, consider replacing your OEM rack with a K9 Load Bar or Roof Rack System.
How do the Eezi-Awn tents attach to a vehicle?
There is a set of aluminum extrusions attached to the bottom of each tent. Each extrusion has a slot built into it, to accept a rectangular washer holds the head of a 8mm bolt. Your tent comes with a DIY kit that includes 4 of these washers, along with the bolts/fender washers/nuts to attach the tent. You can slide these washers in the extrusions to the point where you want to attach them, then add a nut and washer to the bottom of the bolt. If clamping to a load bar, we have additional mounting hardware to accommodate this. Please look at the Roof Top Tent Mounts section on our site.
How high can I mount this tent?
The Eezi-Awn ladder is a 2 piece extension ladder that can support the overhanging portion of the tent up to 2 meters. That is roughly 80". You can shorten the ladder by adding holes in the vertical uprights to receive the connecting pins at a height of your desire. We also offer a ladder extension, which add roughly 12" of length to the ladder for a max height of 92". That height is to the bottom of the tent base.

TURN AROUND TIME
We always work to ship every order as quickly as possible, but we're a small team and we ask that you read our shipping policy so that we can set the right expectations.
Unless an expedited shipping method is requested, it's best to assume that from the time we receive your order during our office hours, Monday through Friday, and add it to our queue, it takes our team a few business days to start preparing your shipment. There is also the additional shipping time based on your location from our warehouse in Salt Lake City. These transit maps offer a helpful timeline for most orders:
Please note that we do not handle or ship orders over the weekend.
Shipping around the holidays can get a little crazy. We do our best to get your packages out within 48 hours, but once they leave our warehouse, it's in the hands of our carriers to handle the rest. Often times they experience delays and unforeseen weather. The best way to ensure your package arrives by a certain date is to expedite the shipping, not wait until the last minute, and even order a few extra days in advance.
These "last day to order" deadlines are your best bet. We promise to ship within the timelines given to us by our carriers, but these are only guidelines and cannot guarantee on-time delivery 100% (regardless if expedited is selected):
- Ground & Freight: December 13th
- 2nd Day Air: December 18th
- Next Day Air: December 19th
If your order did not arrive accurately, we will pay the return shipping charges and refund to you the amount of shipping you paid on that particular product.
