6 Man Annex Can Be Also Used As A Pool
Purchased rooftop tent and annex for New Years camping trip. Roof top tent is pretty good but the annex is horrific. Leaks so bad. Everything that was in the annex was soaked.
I would usually just deal with my purchase and make it work as such ,but poor quality as this product is there is no hope.
Definitely do not purchase the annex. Better of buying a dome tent.

Not bad product. Terrible customer service.
So my partner ordered me a deluxe big daddy swag for my birthday. It arrived in under 2 weeks. When she checked the most necessary parts, the extendable pole and the guy ropes and pegs were all missing. Contacted customer support, eventually got the pole, still missing the rest of the year customer service very unhelpful won't buy anything further from them, zero trust now. The swag is quite comfortable though.

My roof top tent doesn’t unfold straight, it’s stays open in a angle.
I’ve purchased my kings roof top tent 3 months ago at 4wdsupacenter in Malaga, Western Australia.
I have been camping twice and it’s doesn’t stay flat when it’s opened. The platform that holds the ladder stays up, so my tent stays in a angle when it’s opened up, very uncomfortable to sleep. I’ve tried to put the ladder in every angle but it still up.
I’ve done some research on the internet and saw few people with the same problem, they are saying it’s a faulty from the factory.
Can someone from Kings help me out ?

Kings roof top annex
Easy to set up
Just a shame if leaks poor quality
Poles inside poor and will poke a hole in the tent smallest bit of rain and boom pool inside ! I got it for a months remote work and lasted a week as all my food gear clothes and electronics were sodden
Not happy with this product at all
Shame as I have all kings gear and generally rate it highly
Annex is garbage. Do not buy one if u are in a wet climate
Horrible product.... destroyed our camping trip
We went out Boxing Day for a week (and are already home after just one night). The 4 man annex leaked water in the rain like a sieve. There was water coming in through closed windows, through the floor seams and everywhere else. The entire floor was flooded and all our bags of clothes were soaked. When the rain got hard we had to stand on each corner and hold the sides of the tent up to stop the waterfalls coming in through the windows.
This could be fairly easily fixed with snap adjustable straps between the annex and the roof top tent, if you...

Roof top seems good but annex and other tent products have been troublesome.
Roof top tent has served us well and after 3 uses in all weather it seems good value. The 6 man Annex however was no good. On first use we had rain and the annex flooded. On inspection it appeared it was coming through the seams and the material itself. 4wd supacentre replaced it without issue, claiming it to be an anomoly. I set up the replacment annex at home in the rain and it also leaked a lot of water. 4wd supace tre offered another replacement however i lost faith in it. I got the 4 man annex instead and a gazebo tent. The 4 man annex see...ms to resist water better as there is less area exposed to weather, however we have experienced some water seap in still. The worst is, we have just set up the gazebo tent in the yard for the kids (second use), the zipper busted, and after todays rain, there is evidence of water inside. On first use one of the bottom corner ties tore off too, leaving me a small hole to patch. I have a lot of kings gear (about 3.5k worth) and most is great value but my experience with their tents has been terrible (with exception of the roof top). That being said, their customer service has been helpful with regards to the issues I found with the annex. Just dissapointing that every kings tent solution i have tried for the kids has failed me.
Purchased at 4WD Supacentre Physical store.
Very happy with the product. No buyers regret. Bang for buck I believe it to be unbeatable value.
Ok, so there has been a lot of negative reports but my experience so far has been positive. My roof top tent + 6 man annex is installed on my trailer and not on the roof of my 4wd. I think this is where many people have problems as the outer cover is always exposed to the elements and will degraded from UV. There isn't much that will not be destroyed by prolonged heat and UV. My trailer is undercover when not in use.
On my first setup which I did well before the trip, I checked the nuts were tight and everything appeared where it should. I coul...

We purchased this tent from 4WDsupacentre in March and used it for the first time for one night a few weekends ago. Initially thought the tent seemed good value for money when we saw it in the shop for $699, big mistake. We unfolded the tent and noticed the main hinge doesn't line up at all on one side. As you can see the one side is fine and the other completely out of line. When you sit on the overhanging portion of the tent that whole side drops towards the floor. Feels incredibly unsafe and I'm sure it will completely give way soon. Contacted the kings claim department last week but still no response...

Used the tent once
Issue with the Zip connecting annex to tent - broke on first use.
Tried contacting 4WD supacentre, still no reply.
Wanting full refund ASAP, very slow at getting back. Shocking product.

Slow and painful
Tent took a month to arrive, after chasing them up about it, was offered a reluctant apology.. lucky we cant go anywhere anyway!
Only instructions provided are installation instructions, so for setting up/packing away youre on your own, it took me 2 very frustrating hours to set up/pack away, and trying to get the plastic cover over it was an absolute nightmare, ladder feels unstable and only has one setting to click into, despite the instructions telling you it needs to be on a certain angle, i still have no idea how to use the rest of the bi...

Cover too small and does not fit
Bought our Kings roof top tent two weeks ago and have put it on our car. So far so good, except for when we try to put the cover on and it doesn’t fit and has already ripped in places. Off the roof it has come. Slightly disappointed as we are trying to get away this weekend and it’s not possible without a cover fitted

Great value for the money!
Having never used a rooftop tent before I did a lot of research and was wary of the low price of the Adventure Kings rooftop tent. However, I took the plunge and bought one a couple of weeks ago.
The installation instructions were clear and simple and there was no issue with getting it onto the roof rack (however, the tent illustrated in the instructions was not the one I purchased). When I unfolded the tent one of the locking pins on the ladder broke without any force being applied to it - the quality of the ladder is shocking! (This was reso...lved by returning to 4WD Supacentre and purchasing an expanding, tubular ladder which is way more secure and strong for only $49 - a quick trip to Bunnings for a couple of brackets and rivets and I had a perfectly good ladder. There are no instructions whatsoever on how to erect the tent, clip the window stays in, install the cover, etc but I managed to figure that out. After those teething problems I am perfectly happy with the quality and comfort of the tent and I’m convinced it’s the best value for money out there.

Tight Cover, otherwise good so far.
Tent appears good quality. Floor is starting to compress, not sure of this floor material in the longer term. The early let down is a cover which is way to tight with a poor quality zip making the pack up hard work even without bedding. Cover is already damaged as a result. Mattress is a bit thin but not a big issue. On the positive, quick to set up, very weather proof and cool when hot. We’ve spent three weeks in it so far continuously.

haven't even used it put the black cover on and the stitching broke.
there's were the stiching broke. havent used it yet setting it up before the trip, there was no wind packing and setting up was easy. they need to manufacture it so theres a little bit more give.

Dangerous Tent Exploded Open On Freeay At 110km During A Storm
Dangerous, tent exploded open while driving 110km down freeway in high winds in the middle of the night in a storm. Yes it was strapped on and the zip ripped right off. Yes it was as crazy as it sounds and the ladder smashed through my rear window shattering the glass scaring the absolute bejeezus out of us as we were driving along. Had to struggle to fold tent back closed in heavy winds which was wild as it kept blowing back open again in the storm with me on the roof and my friend at the back, nearly knocked her out: meanwhile trucks blasting past us. All this one month after the warranty expired. Not to mention the previous bending of the steel structure. I took it straight to the tip after this as it was completely destroyed.

Not the quality i expected.
i have used this tent 4 maybe 5 times for a total of around 14 days. the rest of the time it has been zipped up with the black cover on it. Unfortunately the last time we went camping we arrived and flipped over the tent and zipped on the annex, but as soon as i grabbed the black straps i noticed they were really perished some even dissolved in my hands. the straps on the annex all fell apart so we couldnt use it which was really painful as it is where we keep our dogs at night so they don't wander off and cause any problems. We also use it as ...a change room and put a portable toilet in there. Now we are just waiting for the remaining straps to fall off and make it even more of a pain. Without the annex we cant use it as we originally intended so its useless to us now. Lodged complaint today and will see what happens here. The tent annex look brand new but these straps are not UV stable and should not have been used in the first place as 2 weeks exposure to the sun should not have them crumbling and falling apart.

Kings roof top tent
I bought a roof top tent 2 weeks ago never used it since after the first night it rained and everything got drenched mattress and bedding not happy a t all. Also the waterproof bag was and is way to tight all for corners of the bag have ripped due to the tighness and the sharp edges of the alloy edges of the tent itself. All bad things aside the only good thing I found was a quick set up.
Purchased in August 2019 at 4x4 supercentre for $650.00.
Blew open on the freeway during strong winds
Enjoyed the tent very much in our first month after much difficulties figuring out how to actually use it. The waterproof cover that comes with it is so difficult to put on we usually spend most mornings struggling to get it on without ripping it up. Yes, the new models have covers made to fit so snugly it’s almost impossible to get it on. Normally when it is properly set up it holds up pretty well in rain and wind. However, today while we were driving on the road in high winds, the velcro straps came apart, the cover flew off and our entire te...nt blew open while we were on the freeway going at 100km/hr. We had to pack the tent back up on the road shoulder in the rain and wind with trucks and cars zooming by which is not a good experience I assure you. The velcro straps are completely useless in holding the tent close and is very dangerous when it flies open when driving. If you do purchase this tent, make sure to use a rachet strap to secure it shut for your safety and the safety of others!
