“It is really hard to close the tent alone!”
“You need to go up on the roof of your Defender!”
“It is easy for two persons but alone, no way!”
I received these and similar answers when I asked in various forums whether I could pitch and dismantle a roof tent on my own as a woman. It was really desperate, because I didn’t get a helpful answer. So I had to make my own experiences. With the help of my husband I found some tricks and tools that make it easy for me as a woman to travel with the roof tent. I hope I can teach you about the simplicity of assembly and disassembly with my video.
Construction and dismantling times vary depending on weather conditions and time pressure. If I hurry, the tent can be set up in 3 minutes and taken down in 5 minutes. But mostly I take my time – I’m on holiday and don’t want to rush! 🙂 A beer is part of the evening’s set-up, of course, and coffee is not to be missed during dismantling.
