Dometic Rarotonga FTT 401 (2022)
New for the season, the Dometic Rarotonga Tent is for the family who want plenty of space. The tent is available in two sizes, a 601 model will comfortably give the perfect amount of space for 6 people to sleep, live and cook while the 401 size is ideal for small families who are wary of weight and pack size. Personally we see the 401 model as the perfect couples tent as it offers everything you need and more for shorter or longer stays. Features is one thing this tent isn’t short of and it has been designed to give a luxury experience for the user.
The other key theme fro the Rarotonga is quality. Dometic have used their best Waterproof 150D Polyester fabric with double stitched seams to ensure the tent stands the test of time. With a 6,000mm Hydrostatic Head along with multiple ventilation panels (high and low) you can really get the balance between waterproof and airflow. Through-out the tent there is great interior height thanks to a very boxy shape and oversized beams. The tent can be pitched by one person in around 12 minutes.
The tent has four zones: a rear storage area to de-clutter the main body of the tent, a very generous sleeping area to accommodate any air bed or camp bed, a big living area to make sure you are never short of space (especially on those rainy days) and a ample open front canopy section giving you a great wet/dry area before entering which can also be used to create the perfect shelter cooking area. A additional vestibule can be purchased to enclose the space from the elements.
Dometic’s Rarotonga has key features such as zip curtains and bedroom dividers with press stud poppers to retain the material when not needed. The poppers also allow you to hang lights and cables around the tent which is something you don’t see on any other brand. The Rear Storage area can be used to increase the depth of the bedroom or help to hide away any excess bags. It would also be a good place for a low wardrobe so you can get changed in the morning without having to go into the living area. Darkened sleep-tite bedrooms help the whole family sleep longer by blocking out the early morning light.
Overall we feel the Dometic Rarotonga is something fresh and different in comparison to what we have seen in previous years and because it has some unique but iconic features we feel it is going to be a popular model.
