With the lid open, it’s time to step inside (the
door has a neat flip-down step) and extend the
curved tent poles that give the tent its shape,
and then fit and extend the horizontal tent
poles, which help to tension the 10oz canvas.
If you’re so inclined, you can then step outside
with the requisite tent poles to set-up the
window awnings – each awning requires
three separate poles, which are provided.
Like most camper/tent trailers, the emphasis is
on outdoor living and cooking. While no
kitchen is provided inside, Jayco has fitted a
stainless steel slide-out unit to the rearnearside.
This kitchen is comprised of a sink
with tap, a three-burner cooktop, cutlery
drawer, and a stainless steel bench extension.
A large drawer is provided towards the front
to house a portable fridge – an 80L unit would
easily fit here – while more slide-out storage is
provided on the offside. You’ll also find an
offside hatch for access to a 12V control panel
with switches to isolate the 12V circuits – the
fridge, the lights and power sockets (there is a
12V point both inside and outside). A water
level indicator for the onboard 65L water tank
is also fitted here.
A locker door is fitted to the rear-offside for
access to the small storage area here.
