CAMPING AND CAMPING EQUIPMENT
Part of the attraction of heading out 4WDing is visiting the remote areas that many other people do not get to travel to. And while “roughing it”might has some appeal, there are times when a bit of comfort can make all the difference. Whether you’re planning on getting lost for a couple of days, or want to head into the less populated parts of the country, you’ll need some warm and convenient shelter. ARB’s Touring range incorporates the Kakadu and Simpson III rooftop tents, a vehicle mounted awning and outdoor shelter, along with a variety of other optional accessories to cater for all of your camping needs. Unfolding in minutes, a rooftop tent provides sleeping quarters off the ground, protected from the elements. Spacious and comfortable, all bedding can remain inside the tent during the journey, freeing up vital storage space in the vehicle, and allowing the tent to be quickly and easily packed away. ARB retractable awnings are easy to mount and operate, and fit on to the side of a roof rack, conveniently stored for immediate use on arrival. Specifically designed for harsh Outback conditions, the awnings are rugged but lightweight, and provide fast and convenient protection from the elements. To complement ARB Touring awnings, a range of easy to assemble awning accessories are available to keep you cool, dry, comfortable and pest free while you enjoy your surroundings. The awning room with floor is designed to function as a fully enclosed room to provide additional weather protection and privacy. Another approach is the ARB wind breaks. Designed to angle out from ARB Touring awnings, wind breaks offer additional protection from the rain and with a UVP50+ rating also provides extra shade and sun protection. And then there’s the vital ARB mosquito net, which is manufactured from 48gsm midge proof mesh and is available for both the 2000 and 2500 model ARB Touring awnings. This updated version of the original mosquito net room is now larger and includes a mud/ storm flap to reduce grass seeds etc from collecting in the lower section of the mesh. However, if you like to get closer to nature there’s the ARB SkyDome Swag, which incorporates the latest in swag design and comfort, and includes both single and double configurations. Of course, you’ll need a light at night, and the ARB rechargeable LED Adventure Light offers five hours of run time, and can be charged via the included 12V DC charge lead or 240V AC adaptor. A high capacity 7.4V/ 2200mAh lithium battery ensures an extensive service life. Rated to 120kg, the ARB Air Locker camping chair has a host of features, including a padded seat and backrest, convenient drink holder pouch, side pocket with Velcro flap for your keys, wallet or other small items, and a mesh magazine pocket on the rear of the backrest. Stylish in design, ARB’s Stormproof Bags come in two sizes and feature PU coated Oxford weave fabric and rubberised construction, with all seams heat sealed and taped to ensure high water resistance. Insulated to keep your food and drinks cool on warmer days, the ARB Cooler Bag incorporates strong carry straps with a padded handle, external elastic strap for packing additional items, an external zip and Velcro pockets for smaller items such as keys, wallet and phone. Adding to ARB’s range of cargo gear products, the ARB toiletries bag keeps personal hygiene products together in a compact manner. The ARB portable fridge freezer was developed in Australia to handle extreme conditions and is available in 35, 47, 60 and 78-litre capacities, all backed by a comprehensive three-year warranty.
