Update on the rooftop tents on the 4-berth campervan

Currently, two different versions of the rooftop tent are being used on the Spaceships 4-berth campervan with rooftop tent. Both are great and easy to set up. This How-To Video shows you how to set up both versions. We cannot say beforehand which rooftop tent will be fitted on the 4-berth campervan you have booked.

The rooftop tents that are being used and demonstrated in this video...

  1. Version 1: High-Quality Pod Rooftop Tent From James Baroud
  2. Version 2: DARCHE Ridgeback made from recycled plastic waste and saving around 185 bottles from landfill per rooftop tent

Both of these rooftop tents will make your Aussie road trip super easy, as both can be set up in minutes. The video above will show you how easy it is. And if there are questions, our friendly crew is always happy to answer them.

Sleeping in your Beta 4-berth

Setting up the bottom bed – internally and extending with the Rear awning. Extending the bed out the back and using the rear awning is fantastic is Summer months. It not only allows for much more room inside the camper but provides great ventilation for a comfortable nights sleep.

If you plan to sleep with the internal set up we recommend hiring the mosquito nets that cover the windows. This way you get the added ventilation! Add these mosquito nets to your booking as an optional accessory. Optional accessories can be added at the time of booking or later via the Online Check-in Portal.

Setting up the rooftop tent

The how-to video will show you how easy it is to set up the James Baroud rooftop tent. The short version is: open the rooftop pod and let the gas struts do its work. You'll find the ladder in the rooftop pod. Get it, remove the case and attach it to the pod for easy access.
