Discovery XXL

James Baroud

With the same advantages as the Discovery in terms of installation, impermeability and wind resistance, the XXL model has been designed for large templates with 20cm more in length and width.

The Discovery XXL has two entrances and large wrap-around windows that maximize airflow and provide a 240-degree view. For extreme conditions, ventilation can also be assisted by the solar-powered ventilation system. 

Access to the tent is easily gained by using the folding ladder that comes standard with all James Baroud rooftop tents and attaches to either side of the tent.

The top streamlined hard shell is equiped with a rear aileron. The hard shell locking is ensured by two tailor-made locks. To fixation to the vehicule is made by two aluminium rails, built-in the under with six fixing points (M8 screws and self-locking bolts).
