NEW FOR 2020

Family Tent Shop Description

The Kapalua Air TC 500XL is a great addition to the range for 2020. It has two large bedrooms at the rear, sewn in groundsheet living area in the centre and a decent enclosed front porch on the front. It also has a handy side storage pod on the left hand side which is ideal as a wardrobe or toilet area. Being polycotton makes the tent a little heavier than other large air tents but this is counteracted by the benefit of being cooler when its hot, warmer when its cold and a lot quieter due to the breathability and weight of this polycotton fabric. Midnight blackout bedrooms are a feature of this tent. 

Optional Extras

- Footprint to keep the underside of the tent clean and tidy and to make pitching the tent simpler
- Fitted carpet for the living area for a warmer cosier feel on your tootsies.
- Sky Liner provides a layer of air between your living area and roof to help reduce condensation
- Elite Air Side Awning creates another area for storage or maybe as a dining area.


A very popular design of tent in polyester, the Kapalua is sure to be a winner due to it having the better, longer lasting polycotton fabric. An ideal tent for a small family as it has two large bedrooms and three zones for functional living. A real top end tent that comes highly recommended.
