Big Disappointment

I brought a Oztent RV-3 lite tent in 2021. By late 2023 the inside surface of the tent had become very sticky and there is a strong chemical smell. The stickiness and smell point to the tent coating breaking down. I submitted a warranty claim in January 2024 and despite following it up with Oztent, I am yet to receive any response to my warranty claim. Show details

Utter garbage, do not buy. Zips fail

All the tent zips have failed after 2 years, most of which were spent in the shed. I go camping once a year, so the tent is barely used. It's now garbage as all of the zips have failed and the tent can not be closed. My first rv3 lasted 10 years, what a disapointment Show details

Rubish

Oztent Rv-3 lite tent and modular system, the modular section roof leaks like a tea strainer, the panels have become sticky like they are covered in adhesive and the 2 extendable upright poles no longer lock. I have had this tent for about 18 months and only used it 4 times. I had a $100 kmart tent before this one and took more than 20 years to wear out... Definitely a bad purchase. Show details

Reasonable Product, terrible after sales support

I bought his tent from Tentworld in Tweed. After 4mths of use, the stitching at the bottom corner of the tent started to wear and a hole appeared in the tent. If it was a $200 tent I would accept it, but at $700, I was expecting a longer life from it. I lodged a warranty claim that has been going for 4 weeks now with no resolution or feedback. Both Tentworld and Oztent are pushing the responsibility to the other party. After sales service from both companys is less than desirable. Show details

Quick set up however huge to carry around

Loved this text for the ease of setting up and packing away. Whatever weather the tent is up within a matter of minutes. However when it folds down the item is huge to carry around therefore you have to plan packing the car well. Also the hinges on the front of the tent have a lot of pressure on them when using a fly or something similar. Nothing broken but doesn't quite look right/may have issues in the future. I have used this tent 20+ times and overall very happy with the performance and look. Show details

weak frame materials . great design

pulled up tent and main bar on front roof bent out of shape.got sent new one but need advise to dismantle bent bar out of hinges. rear right corner support out of shape. the internal frame is just plain weak. for 1000aus i could have bought a stronger tent. i would rather spend 10 minutes putting up a stronger tent . only used it 3 times for 3 nights each time. i will keep using it but dont have much faith for the future.

Don't buy it!!

Yes its a quick tent to set up but only suitable for calm, sunny days.. A little wind and the corners will break. I used mine for the first time and it broke. Was raining and wasn't even that windy and it still broke. I know 5x people that have brought one and it has happened to all of them. Oz tent don't cover under warranty. For the price should last.

Save your Money.

Doesn't like strong wind

A year ago I bought an RV3 tent. Good all round tent in good weather. Recently I was camping in it during a thunder storm. It did not like the 90 km/hr winds at all. One of the internal frame braces collapsed under the pressure of the wind and the rain was seeping through the canvas with the wind behind it. Expected better for a tent of this price.

Good day we are urgently looking for zips to be fitted on our OZ FoxWing awning we brought it 2nd hand. The previous owner fitted other zips and removed original zips. Now we are unable to zip our current oz equpment. Please please assist. I am from South Africa and can arrange with a local for collection. Rina Pretorius
