Any Land Cruiser, of course, makes for a solid option if you’re planning on driving out past the beaten paths. But with a rooftop tent option you can stay on the road longer, and cheaper !

This Land Cruiser is equipped with a Rhino-Rack HD three-bar Crossbar rack that serves as the foundation for a harshell Alu-Cab Expedition 3 pop-up rooftop tent, and 270ยบ awning that stretches over the rig’s aft sectors for added shade when parked.


The name Alu-Cab is synonymous with quality and great workmanship. They pride themselves on bringing the best possible product to the market.

Over the years, they’ve been adding continuous improvements to their Expedition Tent, opting for a wider, more spacious layout, as well as a streamlined design that’s both aesthetically pleasing, and far more aerodynamic.

Because their tents are used by extreme adventure travellers across the globe, they wanted to build a tent that would offer the best possible insulation against blazing African heat, as well as sub-zero temperatures found in Europe and North America. 

That said, their Gen 3 roof structure and base are generously insulated with a closed-cell foam lining that offers excellent comfort and insulation all year round. They’ve also included an awning cover over the tent’s rear door, which helps to keep rain, snow and frost off the rear opening.

More Features :

  • 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
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 Expedition 3 Tent – a third generation product that has evolved into a supremely comfortable, spacious, and fast-pitching home away from home.
