Has anyone ever had a problem with one of the zippers with the oztent? One of our zippers (ex-5) does not close anymore, and we have no warranty. Any ideas/experience how to repair? Oztent Company wasn’t helpful at all, they never answered
Does the RV 5 tagalong fit a 2.5 Rino awing
Anyone slept 5 people in to RV-5? how comfortable was it?
Hi people , I'm thinking about changing to a rv5, but a bit sceptical as in Heavey dew situations does it get any at all , is there enough ventilation when it rains for that situation not to happen. Any info would be appreciated. thanks.
G'day George, you won't have any worries here - your best bet is to buy the fly as well. That gives that extra protection, I use a fly in most cases. ( unless just set up for one night) The fly , apart from protecting your tent from sun / rain & bat & bird dropping etc will make your tent a whole lot cooler plus the small amount of dew that all tents will gather will be mainly taken by the fly. Here's a Tip: If you buy the fly it can be a little awkward putting it on & off ( I'm only 170cm - it would be easier if you were 180 plus ) so again your best bet here is zip it on & leave it on, roll your (dry) tent up with it on. Then when using it again its attached & just needs a couple of poles / pegs & your set. I hope this helps a little. Happy camping .Cheers Shane.
Has anyone had a pooling issue on the roof when all peak panels are in place.?
Hi, do you mean on the front awning ..? if you send me your email address I can send you a photo of mine set up - no pooling problems. You can get a little " run off" on the front awning at the centre of it ( lowest point) I use to put a bucket under it to capture the water that I in turn used for the solar shower. Another option I've used is to put a ridge pole on the front to spread the run off & give it a bit more strength. That works well. But if rain is coming & I need a little extra washing or shower water the capture method has benefits. Cheers Shane.
Why did water pool on the downside of my peaked side panel shaped roof? I thought the slope would have been enough for it to run of?
Can you zip the RV5 directly to a foxwing awning?
Hi Andrew, I'm not sure what a fox wing awning is ...? if its a waning off your 4WD - No I would assume not. Best check with Oztent or a distributor
Do you need to season the oztent before use?
