The Gear We Use – Tents and Awnings

We commonly receive messages requesting details on some of the gear we use so in answer to that we are going to compile a series of blog posts in hopes that it will help in developing your own camping / overland gear kit. Just so we’re honest, the other purpose of this article is to hopefully generate an bit of travel funds for our family by using the Amazon Affiliate links. The beauty of this is that you don’t pay a dime extra by using the links, but we earn a bit of “commission” when you click and buy from the links we share. It’s not much, but every little bit helps! We are also sharing gear that isn’t available on Amazon so if you call or email these vendors after reading this or watching our videos, please let them know we sent you! It helps create other opportunities for us with those particular vendors (like potential sponsorship) which would help keep us traveling and making videos. Just so you’re aware, we are currently NOT monetarily sponsored by ANY companies so the reviews we give are from a user perspective. One last note; all pricing is as of 7/3/18 and may change without notice! We just wanted to share a price here so you can have an idea of the actual cost. That being said… on to the gear! TENTS Roof Top Tent Brand: 23 Zero USA Model: Sydney MSRP: $2,599 Size: King Size+ We’ve ran several different tents over the past few years but this is the flagship and our current setup. The sleeping platform measures 87 x 96 inches (Standard king size mattress is 76 x 80 inches) and has a 3 inch high-density foam mattress, removable rain-fly, sky-view roof panels, and included annex room. Link: 23Zero Sydney Roof Top Tent Screened Pop-Up Room Brand: Gazelle Model: 25500 G5 Pop Up Portable 5 Sided Hub Gazebo Price: $164.25 Size: 7′ Tall, 8′ 9″ Wall-to-Wall With our travels taking us to the Yukon, Northwest Territories, and Alaska we knew there would be lots and lots of BUGS to deal with. We wanted a way to escape the swarms and have a bit of peace with minimal setup effort. This pop-up room deploys in under 60 seconds and returns to packed state in about 2.5 – 3 minutes. It has already been a life-saver in Utah and Idaho. The quality on this unit is top-notch and we feel it will last the constant use and abuse we will put it through. […]
