Introducing the cutting-edge Alu-Cab GEN 3-R Expedition Tent, boasting stylishly curved lines that add increased sturdiness and a fresh appearance for any journey.


  • Updated look which increases the rigidity of the tent
  • Heater vent as a standard feature
  • Solar panel input as a standard feature
  • This upgrade now boasts a weight decrease to 76kgs


Alu-Cab's GEN 3-R Expedition Tent features a modern, purposeful design, complete with a heater port, solar panel input, and more. Its roof-mounted design has revolutionized the camping industry, freeing up luggage/cargo space and providing a variety of benefits. Hard-shell rooftop tents, like this Expedition Tent, have numerous advantages. These include a lightweight, easy-to-use construction, sturdiness in inclement weather, and more.


  • A gas-strut assisted design that takes seconds to open and close
  • A three-point entry / exit layout so you don’t have to plan your campsite around your tent
  • A more aerodynamic shape
  • You can close the tent with your bedding inside, and lastly…
  • Our Expedition Tent has always followed a hard-shell design.


The construction of hard-shell tents offer longer lifespan, easier cleaning and stronger protection from rain, snow and wind compared to soft-shell options. Alu-Cab's GEN 3-R Expedition Tent blends convenience, aerodynamics and aesthetics together, making it an ideal choice for overland travel. With years of continuous improvement, this hard-shell tent accommodates a wider, more spacious layout, along with critical features such as strength, weight and durability.


1) Comfort and convenience

Buying a rooftop tent is no different to buying a household bed, where comfort is critical; which is why they have specked their Expedition Tent with a generous 75 mm high-density foam mattress. They have also included a reading light, USB charging ports (for your mobile phone), a 12V power socket, and a series of storage pockets where you can keep your keys, books and even your shoes.

2) Functionality

Thanks to the Expedition Tent’s robust aluminium housing, you have the option of fitting our Alu-Cab load bars. This means you can still pack large bulky items on top of your tent. Whether it be a solar panel, camping table, kayak, mountain bike, or our very own Rack Tray, the Gen 3-R Expedition Tent doesn’t prevent you from packing gear on your roof like other rooftop tents do.

3) Insulation

Recognizing that their tents are used by extreme adventure travelers across the globe, They wanted to build a tent that offered the best possible insulation against blazing African heat, as well as sub-zero temperatures found in Europe and North America. That said, the Gen 3-R roof structure and base are generously insulated with a closed-cell foam lining that offers excellent comfort and insulation all year round. They have also included an awning cover over the tent’s rear door, which helps to keep rain, snow and frost off the rear opening.


So, if you’re looking to upgrade your current rooftop tent with a far more durable, versatile and easy-to-use option, look no further than our Gen 3-R Expedition Tent – a product that has evolved into a supremely comfortable, spacious, and fast-pitching home away from home.


  • Side rain cover now comes as a standard feature
  • Spec-built telescopic ladder with rungs that are broad and angled making it far more comfortable to climb into the tent barefoot
  • Single zip opening doors
  • Zippable rear awning – the awning can zip up and stay rolled away. The awning only needs to be deployed when the weather dictates.
  • Stainless steel eyelets for the spring poles
  • Extended cargo rails creating more room and additional options for fitment to the roof
  • Raised air vent to help reduce condensation
  • 3D breathable mesh to further assist with condensation
  • Lightweight aluminium construction
  • Built-in cargo rails for the fitment of optional load bars
  • Hard-shell structure that can carry additional gear – solar panels, kayak, mountain bikes or camping table
  • Streamlined aerodynamic profile
  • 3-point access with a door/window on each side
  • Gas-strut assisted pop-up design
  • Opens and closes in seconds so you can still go on that late-afternoon game drive
  • 75 mm high-density foam mattress with zip-off cover
  • Quick-release ladder that stows inside your tent when closed
  • Storage pockets
  • Internal USB power points
  • Internal 12V plug point
  • Internal lighting
  • Rear door awning to keep the entrance dry
  • Dual-layer canvas for better insulation and protection
  • Wind resistant design thanks to single-sided opening
  • Top and bottom foam insulation for class leading insulation


The load rating for the cargo rails on the tent roof is 50kg. It is important to note that where the load is located on the roof, will determine how easy or difficult it is to open the tent.

It is always suggested to shift heavier loads towards the front of the tent, and much lighter loads, like a solar panel, to the rear.
