For those who want a tent with the strength and durability of canvas, but goes up as fast as a dome, the Duxton is your winner. Lighter and much stronger than many domes, the Duxton has great internal useable space.


  • Anti Grit Reversed Zips

    Zips that are attached with the teeth facing inwards. This style of zipper is less likely to clog with sand and grit increasing the durability of the zips and therefore the tent. Also reduces corrosion from salt sea spray when camping at the beach.

  • Anti Pool Awning

    The raised centre on each side of the awning ensures water runs off freely at the front and rear of the awning sides. This solves a common problem with large awning roofs.

  • Awning Rigging System

    Steel rings located on the inside of the awning, allows ropes to be connected to create clothes lines or kitchen utensil racks.

  • Breathable Fabric

    Using natural cotton mixed with strong and durable polyester (35% cotton / 65% polyester) this fabric remains breathable while being 100% waterproof. This keeps the tent fresh, reducing the stale air feeling. Also provides better temperature control, keeping the tent cooler during the day and warmer in the evenings.

  • Colour Coded Poles

    Poles are marked with a durable colour wrap, which matches the pole sleeve colour indicator on dome tents and the joining pole on canvas tents. This significantly reduces the pitching time.

  • Continuous Pole Sleeves

    Continuous poles sleeves make pitching easier, with a single pole sleeve to thread the poles through rather than individual loops. The attachment points increase the strength of the tent and the pole cut outs allow water run off and reduce wind catchment.

  • Door Locks

    Small clips located at the top of the door allow the two way zips to be clipped together, preventing anyone outside the tent from opening the doors.

  • Dual Duty Thread

    The best poly cotton thread money can buy! Dual duty thread is increadibly strong an also swells up well when exposed to water filling up stitch holes and creating a turley water tight seal without the need for seam sealing.

  • Entry - Exits
  • Front Power Cord Access

    A small zip closed and weather tight entry at the front of the tent to allow power cords to be brought into the tent. Also power cords to b brought into the awning area of the tent when using a rear powered site.

  • Full Head Height

    Provides plenty of head room through out the tent creating a more comfortable living enviromnent. Important when the tent is being used both as a living and sleeping area.

  • Gold Passivated Poles

    A durable treatment that prevents rust and corrosion, identified by its shinny gold coloured finish. Especially important when camping in salt air seaside campsites.

  • High Tensile Steel Poles

    Unlike softer steel, high tensile (HT) steel poles are highly bend resistant and have good spring qualities. HT steel poles are also 10 - 15% lighter than regular steel poles, reducing the overall carry weight of the tent.

  • No Drip Pole Socks

    Velcro closed covers attached to the end of each pole sleeve, prevents water running down the pole into the awning area of the tent.  This is an important feature when using the awning area as an extra bedroom or main living area.

  • No Noise Findme Zips

    All steel zip pullers have been replaced with reflective puller cord. This eliminates zips jingling in the breeze during the night and also allows zip pullers to be found with a torch.

  • PE Carrybags

    Durable carrybags made from 100% waterproof PE material. Oversized bags to make packdown easier and sturdy tension straps to keep everything as small as possible.

  • PP Mesh Windows

    Polypropylene mesh coated with a protective UV resistant layer.  Does not pull with Velcro and lasts as long as your canvas in the harsh sun.

  • Rear Power Cord Access

    A small weatherproof zip opening at the rear of the tent, to allow power cords to be connected through the tent. As many power boxes are found at the rear of the site, this eliminates the need to run a long cord around to the front of the tent.

  • Weatherproof Design

    Tested under 450mm/hr of driving rain for a minimum of 2 hours. All our tents are 100% waterproof.

  • 1Wet Area Vestibule

    Wet Area Vestibules provide a secure storage space for wet and dirty items outside the tent, but out of the rain and sun.

  • Wet Weather Access

    A protected door design that allows you to get out of the rain and remove wet items before entering your tent. Ensures the inside of your tent remains dry and comfortable in all conditions.
