Keep looking

Bought this tent based on its easy to erect concept and generally positive reviews. I don’t like it: heavy (I split the load using 2 leg bags), hassle to erect in all but ideal situations, the fly doesn’t adequately protect the tent from rain so I need to dry both parts after use, the pegs supplied aren’t adequate for a tent of this size. Despite care to clear the ground of sharps, a hole in the floor appeared after 1st use (a mystery). I wouldn’t buy it again.

leaks

This is the 'lite' version. Goes up fairly well. This has twin side rooms and is huge on inside. Is very heavy tho, and fairly bulky but can fit in car. Handles wind well. Structurally good except fabric and seams leaked in strong rain from day one until I painted fly with silicone mixed in turps. The tape sealing the seams didn't last long. Retreated seams after removing peeling tape. Show details

Turbo plus 300 canvas. Paid 2k. Used in once then took it to the tip. Overpriced junk

Waterproof tape came off. Main knuckle joint let go 4 times. Girlfriend has a Coleman gold series which beats this rubbish hands down. After spending numerous hours fixing it I got fed up and dumped it. 2k down the drain. Show details

Poor zip quality and annexe room does not fit properly with tent and got a hole in it after 1 use

I’ve used this tent once. We paid close to $1000 in an attempt to buy a high quality product for use with family over many years. Despite careful pegging out, one room main zip barely closes it nearly breaks.
The awning falls down unless you extensively peg it with guy ropes.
The extra ‘room’ purchases somehow got a hole in it after one use. Snowys rejected a warranty claim as ‘wear and tear’. The materials clearly aren’t fit for purpose as it was on a tarp. It also doesn’t fit well with the tent. It’s not designed for it. You have to open double zips and you trip over going between the front ‘room/annexe’ thing and main tent. The alloy ‘instant up’ pole structures are also ‘rubbing away’ after single use.
It’s otherwise nice.  Show details

Wouldn't buy it

Have had thee tent for 3 years and in the whole time have had never ending trouble.

First the top part came apart and had fun putting back together.

Then was told great with winds broke a knuckle and bent pole went back to where bought.

They were fine in replacing if okayed by Black Wolf. Well after 6 months Black Wolf got back to us and found a loophole saying we didn't tighten the knuckle properly. So didn't get part for replaced had to pay for it.

Now went to use after all fixed once more and the top has broken once again. Thankfully had Gazebo with us, mad rush down the street and bought a Gazebo tent. Will be using this from now on. Show details

Strong and sturdy

We have used our turbo plus 300 4 times now and couldn’t ask for a better tent. At the moment we are in heavy wind and rain and the tent hasn’t budged. We are dry and have lots of room. (2 oldies and a small dog!). We have the wall attachments so the awning has served us well with a heater and playing cards all afternoon. One thing that would be handy... would be a side panel with a door. All our trips we always set up with the gazebo to the side. Other than that... we are super happy. This will be our last tent as we will be too old to pitch tents in 10 years time!!! Show details

Very Poor Quality

Very poor quality. I have owned this 240 Turbo for approx 8 years, I have used it in total 3 times for a week at a time. I have just set it up and water proof strip around every join peeled of. I have spoken with Black Wolf by phone and messenger and there response is NO WARRANTY, they have no confidence in there product. BEWARE.. Show details

I have a Turbo Tent. However, the last time I used it, one of the four poles with the pole that attach at the top (with the football like shape had plastic tips that rotates within the system that move when the tent poles are locked in and release when pulled inside the tent) came out. I went through a lot to put it back together, and when I set it up it worked fine, but when pulling it down from the inside it would not release and when it finally did one of the poles popped out again. Am I doing something wrong or does these parts wear out. /s/Frustrated

Features:

  • You can currently buy the Black Wolf Turbo Tent in the Turbo Tent 240 which sleeps 4 people and the Turbo Tent 300 which sleeps 5.
  • Both tents have a 3 pole awning, which is designed to handle all types of weather conditions.
  • Gusseted side windows on this tent help allow for optimal ventilation, while zippered guy rope pockets let you keep your ropes tidy - in addition to making your area look cleaner, this also reduces the chance of trips and falls.
  • The fly fabric is made of a heavy duty polycotton canvas, made to prevent tears and hold up in tough Aussie conditions.
  • These tents are advertised as being super-quick to pitch, making them great for trips when you’re constantly on the move.

Points of praise:

  • Many reviewers found that their Black Wolf Turbo Tent was quick to erect.
  • They also said that they were kept dry in humid climates, and didn’t experience a build up of condensation inside the tent thanks to its good ventilation.
  • Reviewers appreciated how the tent had lots of room in the interior, letting them sleep and move about comfortably and without much restriction. This also made it great for families.

Pain points:

  • Some reviewers noted that the tent was quite heavy and bulky, which made it a bit difficult to transport and store.
  • A few also noted that the sealing that makes the tent waterproof started disintegrating, which meant that the tent stopped keeping them dry in wet weather.
