Introducing the Kiwi Camping Tuatara Crest, an upgraded version of the original SSC Blackout rooftop tent in New Zealand. 

Weighing only 49.5kgs, it's Kiwi Camping's most compact design, making it an excellent fit for smaller vehicles or ute trays. The slatted base design reduces weight and minimizes condensation.
