The new OZtrail Cruiser 240 Fast Frame Tent is fast becoming the new "must have" at campsites around Australia!
If you are looking for a tent that you wont waste any time on either setting up or packing down then the OZtrail Fast Frame series of tents is just for you. Perfect for touring, the Fast Frame tents are high quality and easy to use for weekend trips but even if you intend to stay at your campsite for a longer period of time you will find these tents both comfortable and practical. Small enough to take anywhere but big enough to fit you, your camping and sleeping gear, whatever your preferences are when camping outdoors an OZtrail Fast Frame tent is everything you need.
The OZtrail Cruiser 240 Fast Frame Tent is quick to set up, and pack up too. This model is the perfect mix of simple design and quality materials, born and bred for Aussie touring.
The OZtrail Cruiser 240 Fast Frame Tent is designed to be super easy to set up – simply peg out the four corners, extend the corner poles and the tent will stand up before you. Finally, draw the fly over the inner tent, set up your awning and relax! Ideal for touring where you’re putting your tent up and down each day or for someone who prefers to spend less time setting up and more time relaxing. Includes a large front awning for plenty of shade (spreader bar for awning included). A lightweight design makes it easy to carry to your campsite too.
The fly is constructed from 150 Denier rip stop polyester material and Silver Coated UVTex® 2000 Sun Tough Fly fabric - the UVtex® treatment not only protects the fly from harsh UV rays, it also doubles as a 100% waterproof barrier. Factory heat taped seams keep the tent waterproof by preventing seam leakage and Posi-Brace™ securely fastens your fly to the tent with these Velcro® attachment points.
The inner tent is constructed from 150 denier polyester with No-See-Um mesh windows for ventilation but no biting insects. Tensile Tab™ with J-Hooks keeps the poles firmly in position during periods of high wind while Tensile Loops™ act as shock absorbers at the peg down and guy rope points for greater stability and durability.
The OZtrail Cruiser 240 Fast Frame Tent also has a heavy duty DryFloor incorporating a bucket style floor with elevated seams keeping the moisture out but more importantly, you dry, and an Easy Step D Door which is an oversize D-shaped door for easy access to the interior with lower sills to minimise tripping.
The large mesh walls on the inner tent allow for great flow through ventilation. Large windows are built into the outer tent to allow you to completely control the climate. DryGuard™ Plus protects windows from wind driven rain with storm flaps that Velcro together. The poles system is a heavy gauge 16/20 mm steel frame with non-corrosive plastic hubs provides quick sest up, greater strength and improved water shedding. 3 Awning poles are provided as well as sturdy pegs and pre-attached guy ropes.
The OZtrail Cruiser 240 is ideal for moderate to tropical conditions. This is a great tent that is perfect for touring!
FAST FRAME TENTS
OZtrail loves innovation. We have a long history of bringing new products to market, and taking existing concepts and giving them a fundamental rework. Whilst quick set up tents are not a brand new concept, there has been limited development past their initial concepts. This is something that we believe it is time to address, and this season we are starting to bring innovation back to quick set up tents with our Fast Frame range.
Even the best designs and expert machinists will fall short if the materials are not right for them. We have ensured that the materials used on the Fast Frame series are ready for the great outdoors. Hard wearing 150 Denier 100% Polyesters with rip stop weaving have been utilised throughout the tent. That includes the tent body itself and the fly sheet. The folding mechanisms utilises high tensile steels to ensure the best strength to weight performance. These folding systems are supported with ABS plastic joints and hubs. ABS plastics are used because of their excellent tolerance for shock absorbance and stress. The combination of these materials makes for a durable, compact andlightweight folding frame system.
DESIGN AND RANGE
Quick set up tents lend themselves to touring holidays. Up and down in the space of a day and on to the next spot. But, there is no reason why only those looking for a small tent should be able to use a fast folding frame. That is why we have ensured that there are a wide range of sizes and configurations available. From the simple 4 person touring bred Cruiser 240, up to the larger models that are capable of a comfortable week or two away like the Tourer Cabin 450. What is common in both ranges though is the philosophy of quick and easy to operate. The set up difference between the largest and smallest models in the Fast Frame range is really only a couple of minutes.
Whether going for a night or a fortnight, there is one part of enjoying the outdoors that isn’t so enjoyable – setting up and packing up your tent. There is no mistaking the fact that it feels like a chore. But, there is an option. By using modern design techniques specifically aimed at reducing set up time, it does not have to feel that way anymore. The Fast Frame series of tents combine the swift set up frame design with features and high quality materials you’d expect from a much more expensive touring styled tent.
WHY IS IT DIFFERENT FROM OTHER DESIGNS?
Simplicity in design is crucial, especially if you are going to be using this as your shelter for touring holidays. The Fast Frame design makes efficient use of pivoting points to reduce the overall moving parts of the design. As well, a torsion system is integrated into the design, to improve its stability through the set up and pack down process.
Despite a lot of effort going into the frame design, there has not been a compromise on the other essential features of the tent. Rip stop 150 denier polyester material is used on the fly sheet and inner tent – twice the thickness of a normal fly sheet material, and up to three times the thickness of normal inner tent material. But, it isn’t just quality features that have been included, simple features that make your tent more liveable have been included too.
LAYOUTS THAT MAXIMISE YOUR LIVING SPACE
Often fast folding designs skimp on certain features, often the one they do miss is a functional awning area. The Fast Frame series uses a minimum awning length of 1.8m on all models. As well, a full range of walls and floors have been purpose designed to make the awning an extra living space if and when required.
CRUISER AND TOURER MODELS
The Fast Frame series includes two ranges: Cruiser and Tourer. The Cruiser designs make use of a simple and efficient cap fly design. The Tourer designs include a full length fly sheet and options for variable ventilation. So how do you choose between them?
CAP FLY V FULL FLY
Full fly tents are generally able to retain more warm air overnight. Cap fly tents on the other hand are cooler and allow easier air flow. So the time of year that you do most of your camping in will help to make this choice. If you only get out during the warmer months then a cap fly in the Cruiser range will suit your needs well. But, if you plan on doing all year touring – or love your winter touring – check out the full fly Tourer range.
A question that gets asked of these designs is their water and weather resistance, particularly so of cap fly designs. Both the inner tent and outer fly of these designs are made of waterproof materials. And, the design features around windows and exposed seams make their weather performance equal.
SET UP TIME DIFFERENCE
Despite the larger fly area, there is no set up time difference between the Cruiser and Tourer models. So if you prefer the flexibility of the Tourer design you are not penalised on set up times.

- UVTex 2000 Fly - A 100% polyester 150D ripstop fabric, enhanced with UVTex treatment.

- Duo Door - A door with mesh and fabric zippered panels allowing single zip effortless access.
- Easy Step D Door - A generously sized door with lower door sills to prevent tripping.
- Tentsile Loop - Shock absorbent reinforced peg down and guy rope points for greater stability and longer life.
- DryGuard™ Plus - Windows are protected from wind driven rain with storm flaps that Velcro together.
- Power Access and Storage - Power cord access port, Velcro cord holders and light attachment point.

OZtrail Cruiser 240 Fast Frame Tent(5) By: Paul on 31 January 2019Love the product and tent world are an awesome company to deal with. They provide a very informative online buying experience. I will be back for sure
OZtrail Cruiser 240 Fast Frame Tent(1) By: Michael Zippel on 30 January 2019I bought 2 of these - one for myself and one for a mate. Within less than 2 years of very light use BOTH tents had busted zips in the exact same spot (at the seam on the front of the tent). OZTrail and Tentworld have no interest in entertaining a warranty claim. It is true that you get what you pay for. The poor man always pays twice...
Tentworld ResponseHi Michael, thank you for your review. Sorry to learn that you're unhappy with the performance of your tent. I can see that our customer support team have been trying to work through your warranty application because the damage to your zip is not systematic with a manufacturing fault and after our discussions with Oztrail we have been unable to agree that it is covered under manufacturers warranty. I am sorry about this. Kind Regards, Tentworld team.
OZtrail Cruiser 240 Fast Frame Tent(5) By: Bradley on 8 January 2019This is a super quick, super simple tent to erect! We are completely satisfied! Service from Tentworld guys has been exceptional too! It rained while we were away but stayed completely dry in this tent. We did however do as was recommended and set it up in our yard to put a hose on it to ‘season it’ and swell the stitching in the seams so pulled up well when it rained heavily (downpour!!) on ya at camp. We would highly recommend this one!

Tentworld ResponseSorry to hear you're unhappy with your new tent.

Feel free to call also and we can try give you some tips on the phone. I cant see any Kmart tent even close to what this tent is, so I dont think you're right about that.
