    • Description

      With ample space for up to four people, the Evasion is ideal for families embracing the great outdoors or couples seeking new experiences.  Providing year-round safety and all-season protection with its proven reliability and rugged weather-proof construction for worry-free camping adventures.  Less than 1 minute setup, 360 panoramic views and a comfortable foam mattress ensure a tranquil and rejuvenating camping experience even under the starry sky.  The innovative raked roof profile also increases air circulation through the tent, providing a natural vent for warmer air as it rises.


      The large doors and windows provide superb cross flow ventilation, and the solar-powered roof fan can be turned on for increased ventilation in extreme climates.  The tent opens and closes in less than 1 minute, through four integrated hydraulic cylinders, mounted on bearings to actuate the articulated arms, which are protected by a canvas cover. An integrated elastic band around the canvas assure its inclusion inside the tent during the closing.


      The hard shell are made of reinforced polyester glass and finished with Gelcoat. The hard shell has two air slots, equipped with a dust filter that improves the ventilation inside the tent. The top streamlined hard shell is designed with a rear aileron. The hard shell locking is ensured by two tailor-made locks. The attachment of the tent to your roof rack or bars is made by the James Baroud Clamps and the aluminum rails built under the bottom shell. Six Clamps with adjustable width between 30mm (1.18") and 85mm (3.35") are shipped with the tent. More can be ordered separately if necessary.


      The James Baroud hard shell roof top tents are manufactured in the white, gray, or black.  We also offer custom colors, you can also choose a color from the RAL7 palette and we will make it custom just for you.
