Being the most spacious of our tents, the family tent Caravan 17 provides sufficient comfort during long-term camping holidays with family or friends. It has a large bedroom for five people and a vestibule with fully sewn-in groundsheet, mica windows on the walls and a roof window to provide enough light inside the tent. In addition to the main entrance at the front, Caravan also has a side entrance to help ventilation and movement around the tent. In front of the front entrance you can also set up a shelter.

GROUNDSHEET: Layered polyethylene
This is a very strong material used as a groundsheet especially under large tents. Groundsheets made of this material are abrasion-resistant, so they’re a very popular choice for family tents. And as you’d expect, they’re waterproof, which is absolutely essential.
OUTER TENT: 185T polyester, polyurethane (coating 3,000 mm H2O)
This is a very light material that’s tear-resistant. Synthetic polyester fibres improve the product’s ability to resist adverse weather, stop colours from fading, and deal with getting soaked – since they dry really fast.
Polyurethane (coating 3,000 mm H2O)
The polyurethane coating provides permanent impregnation and is applied directly onto the material in various layers. This special treatment of the material prevents water penetration. The coating parameter is given by the height of the water column (stated in mm H2O), in other words the ability of the material to withstand water pressure.
Thanks to its advantageous properties, this material is widely used for outer tent structures, especially for expedition tents where every gram counts. Dural is an alloy combining aluminum with other elements to give it a low weight and the ability to withstand a large loads.
