  • Unmatched Build Quality. All Camp King Outback Series units are 100% Australian Made at their factory in Brisbane, QLD
  • Built Tough. Camp King’s one-piece roof design is exclusive to Camp King Industries.  Their one-piece tent roofs are fully TIG welded and secured with a specialized Orlock riveting system making it one of the most structurally solid units on the market.
  • Weight 147kg / 340 lbs – combining a canopy and a rooftop tent all within one unit keeps the weight down. This is huge!
  • Each unit is built specifically for the vehicle, meaning, no one size fits all, no fit kits or “universal” packages, and no dead space. This ensures tight tolerances, clean mating, efficient usage of space, and a super clean appearance. No wasted space ensures you maximize your precious storage capacity.
  • Laser cut 3mm fully TIG welded construction with a 2mm top.
  • A high-quality 4-inch high-density two-piece mattress comes standard.
  • Prewired Tent Light and Tent Power come standard. 
  • A 10mm thick Closed Cell foam is used on the internal roof of the tent to provide high-level thermal insulation against climate extremes.
  • The full tent body is made from Australian Made Wax Convertor Coolabah Tear Stop Canvas – AS2001.2.18.1987 (Military Grade).
  • Retain your factory tailgate. Don’t underestimate the utility of your tailgate! Flat space is a premium, and nothing serves that better than your factory tailgate.
  • Goose Gear Camp System compatible. We worked with our friends at Goose Gear to produce the Goose Gear Full Interior System, specifically compatible for the Gladiator and Tacoma Camp King Outback Series.
  • Toyota Tundra 2nd Gen 5.5ft units coming soon!
