Quick and easy ‘Kwiky’ installation!

February 10, 2018   |   By Liam Arthur Quick and easy 'Kwiky' installation! - image Capture-105 on https://www.4wdsupacentre.com.au/news

The Adventure Kings Kwiky Pop Up Roof Top Tent is one of the best value hard shell roof top tents on the market. Able to be set up in just seconds, you’d be hard-pressed to find a faster more comfortable setup anywhere in Australia.

Featuring a massively thick 80mm plush open cell mattress, it’s easy for anyone to get their beauty sleep wherever you’ve pulled up.

The Adventure Kings Pop Up ‘Kwiky’ Roof Top Tents are built tough and are easy to install.We are going to go over what you need to get your Kings ‘Kwiky’ Roof Top Tent mounted to your vehicle.

Roof Racks!

Starting from the very beginning you are going to need a solid roof rack like the 4×4 roof racks you can get at 4WD Supacentre, something like the roof top tent rack or a steel flat rack.

If your vehicle isn’t listed on the website you can fit one of these solid roof racks to your sports rails or existing roof racks (according to your manufacturers advised weight recommendations) using a set of rated steel U-bolts.

This process is really easy and allows you to fit all of your other favourite Adventure Kings accessories like 4×4 awnings and other camping and 4WDing accessories like an led light bar or camp lighting.

Once your roof racks are fitted, you can start installing your roof top tent Kwiky.

Not only is the Kwiky roof top tent fast and easy to set up, it’s also fast and easy to install on your vehicle.

 

Mounting your tent!

Firstly get a friend to help you lift the rooftop tent onto the roof rack of your vehicle, this is short work, but you should still thank them with a refreshing beverage from your Adventure Kings fridge/freezer. We keep ours plugged in like a bar fridge, in the shed.

To install your new hard-shelled roof top tent start by taking the 4 included metal plates with square holes and fit 2 bolts into each, ready to slide into the channels on the base of the tent.

With help from your mate, lift the end of your roof top tent and slide 2 of the plates fitted with bolts into each rail and position the fasteners in place.

Make sure the fasteners are on either side of one of the solid steel crossbars on the steel roof rack for maximum holding strength.

Put the lower plate into position (with both bolts on corresponding plates matching up) and fasten the nuts using the included 13mm spanner.

Repeat these steps on all four mounts and the job is done, feel free to celebrate with your mate, and quench a hard-earned thirst with a refreshing drink of your choice, this time it’s his shout!

 

Pro Tip: Don’t forget to double check all the fasteners are tight after your first drive, and again after another week, to make sure you don’t lose your rooftop tent or damage your steel roof rack!

 

Setting up

Now with your roof top tent fitted, all that’s left to do is fit some bedding and then hit the tracks.

To open your Kings roof top tent up simply loosen the two buckles on either end and push the roof top tent lid up. Once you have started the upwards motion the internal gas struts will take over the job.

Pro Tip: The canvas is very weatherproof and can create a vacuum when opened. So you may have to unzip the door to allow air into the rooftop tent, and break the vacuum created inside for it to fully extend.

 

Remove the telescopic roof top tent ladder from its storage bag, and release the velcro keeper strap, and extend all the sections carefully making sure each spring-loaded latch locks itself into place.

Attach the ladder to your tent and climb on in!

Inside the roof top tent Kwiky, you will notice the massive ventilation that is provided by the openable mesh windows, and the handy storage pouches that have plenty of room for smartphones, keys and wallets, and much more.

 

Underneath you are sure to notice the plush 80mm thick mattress, whilst you are up there don’t forget to stash your pillows blankets and sleeping bags so they are already packed and you are ready to rock and roll!

Packing up

To store the tent away simply fold up the ladder, pack it away in its storage pouch, and chuck it into the roof top tent.

Grab a hold of the compression strap and pull down using your body weight for extra leverage. Once the roof top tent has been compressed, loosely buckle one end of the roof top tent.

Repeat this for the other end, and fasten all the straps down tight ensuring the ABS plastic shell nests neatly over the base for a weatherproof seal.

 

It’s as simple as that, you can go from having an ordinary 4×4 to having a fully kitted touring machine in a matter of just a few hours and for way less than you’d think thanks to 4WD Supacentre!
