THE NEXT LEVEL OF LUXURY TOURING

Introducing the Altitude, ARB’s next level of luxury touring in a rooftop tent. Drawing on almost 50 years of engineering knowledge, manufacturing experience and thousands of kilometres of rigorous testing; The ARB Altitude Tent enables off grid living with convenience, comfort and safety by automating set up & pack down.

CAMPING REIMAGINED

The Altitude draws its name from its position our range of tents – right at the very top!

Conceptualised years ago, the idea was to have a tent that would set itself up, and pack itself down at the touch of a button. No fuss, no interaction, and premium in finish; it’s all about the finer details with the Altitude.

Although simple in ideology, bringing this to reality would be a tough task for the ARB specialised Engineering Team.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

  • TOTAL AUTOMATION

    One-touch operation – that’s the goal, and that’s what ARB have achieved with the Altitude.

    With a simple push of a button, the Altitude tent utilises a completely automated electronic opening and closing sequence to have you ready in less than a minute. This process removes any manual interaction with the tent to ensure a convenient and hassle-free setup – giving you more time to focus on the better parts of camping. Of course, a manual failsafe option has been included for worst case scenarios.

    • Completely automated operation powered by 2x quality ARB electronic actuators on each side
    • Raising and lowering is made possible through the engineered steel scissor mechanism
    • Simple push button operation – with a single touch to start, the tent opens and closes all on its own
    • Actuator & tent control unit internalised for long term durability and protection from the elements
    • Lighting and tent controls easily & externally accessible from both sides
  • ARB SMARTFOLD™ HINGE TECHNOLOGY

    Designing a tent that packs itself up is a dream concept, brought to reality by ARB’s specialised Engineering Team.

    The Altitude’s ARB SmartFold™ hinge technology design is what makes the tent truly hands-free. The clever two-piece hinge fully enfolds the Altitude tent’s fabric within the sleeping area during closing operation. This eliminates the arduous task of manually ensuring the canvas is folded into the tent when packing up, and gives a perfect close every time.

    • ARB patented canvas hinge stays enable completely automated operation – no more tucking in canvas to close
    • A total of 6x canvas stays are sewn in
    • The hinge folds in on itself using a collapsing movement, designed by ARB engineers
    • Made from high grade steel to be both strong and durable
  • PREMIUM LADDER

    Comfort and accessibility underpin the Altitude’s purpose, particularly highlighted by the innovative ladder design.

    The ladder’s steps are both larger and deeper than competitor alternatives, as well as being the only tent on the market featuring a handrail ensuring ease and safety for you and your family. The Altitude’s ladder also securely hooks onto the purpose-built mount, which features an amber and white light, illuminating the steps to increase visibility at night. The Altitude stores the ladder internally, removing the need to sacrifice precious tub or cargo space.

    • Robust & lightweight aluminium construction with 102kg / 225lbs ladder weight rating

    • Innovative internal storage solution houses the ladder within the top shell of the tent
  • SHELL DESIGN

    Functional and stylish – having the Altitude on your roof is a real statement.

    The Altitude’s fiberglass construction is finished in a premium cool grey colour embedded in the gel-goat, making it ready to stand the test of time. ARB’s engineering team have ensured that every contour is both perfect and purposeful, with focus on complimenting the vehicle curves. The body of the shell draws inspiration from the clean lines and angles found in modern 4WD design, adding to the overall aesthetic look whilst adding strength for long term durability across changing climates.

    The Altitude is powered from the vehicle’s battery either via hard wire or plugged directly into a 12V Anderson plug. The cleverly-engineered power isolation feature ensures no battery draw when the Altitude tent is closed, turning off all lights and other load drawing devices once shut. Control climate through the integrated roof fan, featuring high and low speed settings, and in or out directional blow settings. The interior is illuminated with a white or ambient amber light strip along the roof edge, ensuring full visibility and comfort when the sun goes down. Dual USB sockets allow for easy charging of phones and tablets and the unique provision for magnetic or suction cup mounts enables easy viewing whilst charging your devices.

    • Powering the tent’s 12V features is a rear Anderson plug connection, with a 3m Anderson-Anderson lead included
    • Best connected to an Anderson plug at rear of vehicle if fitted or a hard-wired solution to battery
    • 25A peak current draw on start-up, 4A running
    • Internal lighting solved with dual temperature & dimmable LED’s

    With safety front of mind, the Altitude has been heavily tested in various environments and climates.

    An internal control box has been installed that includes a failsafe isolator to prevent the tent being controlled once inside, and includes a cigarette and USB C socket for even more device powering/charging options. Although being rigorously tested in various conditions, in the unlikely case of electrical failure a manual override system has been included, providing owners with peace of mind in emergency situations. The Altitude also includes a locking handle on either side of the tent – simply turn the locks to fix the tent in place and key lock before you head on the road.

  • WEATHER & CLIMATE

    Altitude is a four-season tent. ARB Engineers have included a host of premium features to keep you going – in all weather.

    Designed with drainage points in each corner of the base, the Altitude ensures that during heavy rainfall the Altitude tent won’t carry water in the shell. Grommets have been installed in each corner to block the drainage holes when closed, preventing dust ingress whilst on the move. To prevent potential wind-drag and road noise, a wind deflector has been designed for the front of the Altitude.

    • Water drainage holes in each external shell corner, designed and tested for use in 4 seasons. Drain holes covered automatically during in transit combatting dust ingress
    • Weatherproof external zippers
    • Integrated front wind deflector

The Altitude also accommodates the attachment of a crossbar kit further increasing the options of accessories and cargo that can be carried. For additional power, the purpose-engineered 120W solar panel accessory kit, installed on the Altitude’s roof, provides peace of mind when heading off grid. The best bit is that the actuators can support 20kgs to open even whilst loaded, meaning the surfboard or skis don’t have to come off to jump into bed.

    • Sleek roof rails with integrated T-slot mounting channels for a range of accessories
    • 20kg roof load carrying capacity
    • Tent is able to lift while loaded with its capacity
    • Ladder accessible via rear hatch which is secured via 2x lockable D-handles, and spring loaded to automatically hold open for easy ladder retrieval
