If you are using cots I'd go RV5. I have the RV5 with the King Goanna stetchers and they fit, but just barely. I touch front to back (maybe an inch each side). I set up 2 front to back on the outsides and it works. I tie mine to the roof rack. Just mock loaded the rack for my wife's LR4 yesterday (first family trip coming up) and this is what it looks like.


On the 110 with full length rack it goes up top as well. The tent is really almost 7 ft long when packed.

RV5 is better for cots but they do fit in the 4.
We can fit 2 on cots and 2 on the floor np, or 2 in cots and a table and plenty of room inside.
Nice tent, works Weldon us

Dave you have a 110 now. Oztent goes just fine up on the rack... Of course now you find yourself in need of a rack def recommend the Front Runner.

Only issue you will find is wrestling the 7' beast on to the top of the rack. For vertically challenged fellas it is worth watching ... With beers

That's the only place you can put it as they are so freakin' big!

From Expo sale thread. Selling OZTENT RV-4 - Expedition Portal

Basic info on the tent is here Oztent RV-4.

My tent has the optional fly that protects all of the windows. As shown here Oztent Fly

Here's the tent as I had it set up for the FJ SUmmit in Ouray.



Asking $750 for this $1,000+ tent. It is as good as advertised. Roomy, super fast to put up and take down.

I have shipping box and can ship it, but would prefer pickup in Durango or a meet within 100 miles or so. It's heavy and oversize so shipping would be pretty expensive, send me your zip code for me to figure UPS rates.

that's a good deal Dave! Jump on it! I see these come up regularly on the portal in the $1k-$1500 mark (based on accessories included). I'm coming up soon after I get my truck back.

I saw that on ExPo yesterday. Shipping is the issue with that. Once I'm sure I'll order one from Sierra Expeditions.
The truck has a SD NAS type cage so I'll secure it to that.

As an Oztent Retailer, I love them. We all use the RV4 here. My wife and I both have 6' cots and they fit end to end in them. Highly recommended.


Let me know if you're serious and Ill get you the D-source deal.

Are you going to Expo West later this month? That's the big link up for avoiding shipping on a lot of stuff for sale out West. You can also get great show price discounts from the vendors that show up there if you let them know in advance. Family Camping is the big OzTent seller there. They always due discounts. I got my awning from them.

Family Tent Camping is no longer the USA distributor for OzTent. I believe they still sell them, but are not the US rep

Yes, I know. There's several distributors for them. I was specifically referring to the ones I know offer deals at expo west.

Tent in living room pic. The tent is so big it's hard to photograph indoors and of course it's sideways.
