We are different but how different?

Roof top tents in first opion look all the same but are not the same at all.

With our philosophy to adjust our products really to the european climate and demands we are really different from the main stream rooftoptents.

We are upgrading our tents from the moment we started Dare To Be Different Outdoor in 2012 with ideas from our own experience but also from customers who gave their feedback or ideas.

So thats the reason that we say the tents are Dutch design.

Below you will find all our biggest changes in our Roof top tents beside these we have many more done but we don't want the competition all to know yet.

We are convinced we can improve our tents even more so we will always look further. 

 

  • 2019     Curved roof

    In 2019 we upgraded our design to a curved roof. This improves water flow and creates a bigger distance between inner and outer fabric which can result in a bit more insulation.

  • 2019      Tubing inside 24mm. Tubing flytop curved 16mm

    In 2019 we upgraded our standard tent 140, 220 series with inside tubing in aluminium with a diameter of 24mm. The flytop tubing is in 16mm.

  • 2018     We  developed a brand new 180 Roof top tent.

    After a long period of development we are ready to introduce our brand new roof top tent the 180L Delux Limited edition in january of 2019.

  • 2018     Further small improvements

    In 2018 the tents are further improved on a lot of small details. Reinforcements of eyelets, Cover roof top tent, and many more

  • 2017     New Color is added Brown

    In 2017 we introduce our new color tent its Brown. and its the darkest tent to sleep in. For people who like to sleep a bit longer in the morning.

  • 2017     Improved taping procedures

    Taping is done by  means of heat and speed.  If one of the two has more priority taping quality drops. So procedures for Taping are improved meaning speed and heat are better balanced quality above speed.

  • 2016     Fabric weight 300gram

    Our fabric is really 300grams per square meter 35% Cotton and 65% Polyester UV Coated and Watertight for at least 2500mm water column

  • 2016     Envelop system for fabric where the window rods are put in the bottomplate

    Replaced the eyelet for and envelope system. This prevents water coming too the bottomplate and prevents unwanted tension on the fabric.

  • 2016     Design change of the fabric outside hinge cover     

    In 2016 we started with this solution simple but very effective. In 2015 a customer experience with a lot of wind that the cover was blown high and water was coming in to this small opening. They told us this and ask us if we had an solution and the solution was very simple we added some extra Velcro, The Velcro and the extra weight of the added Velcro prevents almost in all cases that the cover stays low.

     

  • 2016      Cover of the Roof top tent 680Grams PVC

    In 2016 we started with this type of cover welded not stitched. In the beginning not reinforced on the edges from 2017 we started with extra reinforcement in the cover on the edges. So in the corners is double layered PVC welded. Also on the long edges.

    In 2018 we changed the way the extra layer for the ladder is welded. What the usage of the cover made again a step easier.

  • 2016      Keder Fabric   

    In 2016 we started to use a welded keder fabric that’s coomonly used in the tent fabrication for tents for caravans and mobile homes. The competitions uses almost all a self made keder fabric. (Fabric stitched around a silicon keder or rubber keder)

  • 2016      Straps size 50mm wide and D-ring size 50mm      

    From 2016 we improved our strap wide to 50mm and as our D-rings also in stainless steel and 50mm wide.

  • 2015      SBS Zippers why not YKK      

     

    From 2015 we started to use SBS zippers quality is 100% similar to YKK and maybe even better because SBS is beside YKK the single largest zipper manufacturer and there for they have to compete against the name from YKK and then you always try to do a bit more. Beside that there are competitors that say to use YKK zippers but they use only the runner of YKK and use this runnen on a cheaper zipper not from YKK.

  • 2015      Aluminum or Stainless steel 304 is used

    From 2015 all used metal parts in our Rooftoptents from the hinge to the bolts are made of Aluminium or at least stainless steel 304. (If you want to check use a magnet for checking stainless steel, Stainless  Steel isn’t magnetic in any way)

  • 2014     We introduce PVC windows in the annex

    Our annex could be improved even more we added PVC windows in the three entry doors. So now the annex is also usaeable in rainy days as a comfortable living space and you can still enjoy the outside.

  • 2014     2.3m Ladder Telescopic standard with each tent

    In 2014 we decided to deliver all our tents standard with a 2,3m ladder. So customers can use our rooftoptents on a car/trailer or other till a height of 2,2m. The ladder needs to have a small angle to comfortably use the ladder. Optional we can deliver an longer ladder.

     

  • 2014     Position elastic cords for folding the walls 

    When we started in 2012 we had already the elastic cords but after a 6 months of use of the tents we always experienced small water drops on the seams where the elastic cords where pulling. Problem because the seam is pulled the taping comes loose, punchholes stitches are erected and there for water comes in. In 2014 we moved the straps at which we hook on the  elastic cords to a position where the seam never becomes wet simply because the water will not come underneath the awning of the window.

       

    Other Manufacturers

    How we are doing it.

     

  • 2014     Mattress 6cm cover is breathable Cotton 100%

    From 2014 we supplied our rooftoptents with a mattress of 6cm and has cover made of 100% Cotton. Advantage its breathable washable on max 30 degrees.  Why only 6cm? Sleeping comfort is so individual that’s with this thickness customers still have the freedom to add ventilation mattresses underneath or enhance sleeping by adding a topmattress without problems of closing the rooftoptent.

  • 2013     We introduced our new design Annex with 3 doors and one door to the car.

    Our new annex has three entry doors and one backdoor to enter the car or trailer.

  • 2013     Bottom plate aluminum sandwich plate with insulation(almost no cold bridges)

    In 2017 we considered to step over to a honey comb bottom plate but because of the disadvantage of almost no isolation function. The honey comb is made from aluminum plates and this is glued to the top plate and bottom plate of the sandwich and there for the heat/cold are directly transferred. This results in a heat/cold transfer that has serious influence on the climate in the rooftoptent. So because of this we kept our Isolated bottom plate that has almost no cold bridges.
