Moremi Sport Rooftop Tents
The Moremi Sport is a groundbreaking design, bringing the space of a straight-up lifting tent to a clamshell's simplicity. Not to be confused with the Chinese built 'Moremi Lite' - The Moremi Sport is a side lifting clamshell and is manufactured in South Africa.
The Tent has an interior space that belies its tiny footprint - it's massive inside. The mattress is 70cm foam, roof lining finished in marine carpet. Entrance is via both ends and the front, with the lifting wall giving a solid wall against the weather on the upwind axis.
The use of quality canvas and aluminium is noted, so is the strength of build and brilliant, simple pointed design.
The "general vibe of the place" is unreal - with almost 1.5m of headroom and full straight lift walls, the Moremi Sport boasts easily the largest internal volume of all the tents we run with, its set up is a very respectable 15 seconds or less and pack up is not hard either.
An unexpected top 5 scorer of our 'world's best top 10 tents scoreboard' - The Moremi Sport suits a variety of tourers seeking more space, good wind performance, and load-carrying ability at a budget price.
While this tent is built from materials that will last a lifetime - Finish quality is below par IMO - we would like to see more attention on stitching/Canvas work, as well as other small things like adding plastic caps over bolts etc. Gas struts are too firm for the tent to close when unloaded and crappy plastic handle doesn''t do justice to the rest of the tent.
Like most new manufacturers - it takes time to perfect their finish - We see good things for these guys in the future - and they have kept the price point low in line with their position in the market. A great tent for big space/Low budget.
