Oztent RV3 in 100 series ?

Tent is 2m long.

Anyone know if it will slide in a 90 series Colorado without back seats?

Or, do you need a roof rack?

PS. NOT 100 series as stated.

Nissan patrol

I have one in back of Nissan Partrol ex-Telstra work vehicle - fits just on custom made shelves. I have found it easier to store/unstore on roof rack - and I can put it up there wet. . I bought mine, it was possible to buy plastic pod with rollers in it for putting on roof rack.

Hope that this helps

Yes, I was trying to avoid a roof rack if possible.

Tent might get stolen. And it would be nice to keep the heavier items low.

Hi,

It will only fit in the boot if it goes diagonaly which will be a pain, although if you are clever you could rig up a frame between grab handles on the edge of the roof so that you could slide it up there out of the way.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
