Product feature
  1. Living room
    Square shelter 2.5 m side, 6.25 sqm with maximum height of 2.15m. bag: Cylindrical: 57 cm x 18 cm x 18 cm. Weight: 7.7 kg.
  2. Pitching/folding
    Very simple pitching and unpitching. We insert 2 poles in loops on the ground, insert the ends of the loops in the cups on the 4 corners. Once the shelter is pitched, peg the 4 corners and the red strap across the side door. Finish off with 4 guy ropes for maximum wind resistance.
  3. Protection from the sun
    The flysheet fabric filters out UV rays with an SPF of 30. Please note: a large amount of UV can pass through a simple open door. Shaded area one side to provide further protection from the sun.
  4. Dimensions and weight, folded dimensions
    Cylinder cover: 57 cm x 18 cm x 18 cm 18 litres, weight: 7.7 kg.
  5. Ventilation
    3 openings with mosquito nets on 3 faces to enable great air circulation and maximum protection against mosquitoes.
  6. Waterproofing
    The waterproofing of QUECHUA tents is tested on the complete tent, under 200 litres water/hour/sqm (200mm of rain per hour) for 4 hours. The water column test (= mm schmerbers) measures just the impermeability of the fabric. Our test enables the ingress of water through seams, flaps, openings, zips, etc to be prevented.
  7. WIND RESISTANCE
    We test all our tents in a wind tunnel on a turntable to expose each side of the tent to the wind. The well-pitched tent with all the guy ropes rigged around the tent must remain habitable in wind speeds of 50 km/h measured near the ground.
  8. Poles, pegs
    Poles: All our fibreglass poles undergo a double quality control guaranteeing excellent resistance to breakage. Tent pegs: Excellent twisting resistance (6mm diameter steel).

  2. Storage advice

    Stephen (United Kingdom)
    Used for 3 to 6 months
    Bought to use as a 'drive-away' awning on a campervan, following very poor experiences with a so called specialist product bought elsewhere at triple the price!
    Light, easy to assemble and extremely well constructed.
    Attached the large flap to the vehicle when not raining and very useful as an extension where you can sit inside completely bug-free.
    Withstood rain and wind - yes did use larger pegs and attached additional straps midway on large flap to prevent cross-wind damage - but otherwise could be safely and securely left on site.
    A great product and excellent value for money!
  • O-ring failure during windy conditions

    T (United Kingdom)
    Used for 2 to 8 weeks
    Had this shelter with us on a 2 week camping trip but one of the metal o-rings was pulled open during some windy weather. This resulted in total destruction of the shelter. Not sure how well this has been tested for wind: one side of the shelter can only be fixed at the bottom with two hooks, this also wasn't very practical with oblique wind angles as the wind can get under the sheet which flaps about and pulls severely on the structure.
  • Never again

    Used for 3 to 6 months
    Bought this to use as an awning on a micro camper. It's fantastic. Plenty of room for table and cooking equipment plus chairs and used as an extra bedroom too. Easy to put up own, and has withstood wind and rain with no problems regularly. Nets on windows/doors offer ventilation without the bugs. Fantastic peice of equipment for a fantastic price.
