Alu-Cab Gen 3 Expedition Roof Tent

Installing the Gen 3 Expedition Roof Tent
A look inside the Alu-Cab Gen 3 roof tent

Our new addition to the Landrover Defender fitted by Tuff-Trek.

Upgraded from the Tufftrek TT02 soft top roof tent for multi day travel.

I love the ease of setting up, just un-clip the 2 latches and up it goes.

Great for a quick overnight stop or for setting up in the bad weather.

The mattress is really comfy and the bedding can remain in the tent, when packing up, including pillows, making set up so much easier.


  • Lightweight aluminum construction

  • Built-in cargo rails for the fitment of optional load bars

  • Hard-shell structure that can carry additional gear

  • Streamlined aerodynamic profile

  • 3-point access with a door / window on each side

  • Gas-strut assisted pop-up design

  • Opens and closes in seconds

  • 75 mm high-density foam mattress with zip-off cover

  • Quick release ladder that stows inside your tent when closed

  • Storage pockets

  • Internal USB power points

  • Internal 12V plug point

  • Internal lighting

  • Rear door awning to keep the entrance dry

  • Dual-layer canvas for better insulation and protection

  • Wind resistant design thanks to single-sided opening

  • Top and bottom foam insulation for class leading insulation



The load rating for the cargo rails on the tent roof is 50kg.

It is important to note that where the load is located on the roof, will determine how easy or difficult it is to open the tent.

It is always suggested to shift heavier loads towards the front of the tent, and much lighter loads, like a solar panel, to the rear.


Vent the tent after a campout as moisture can build up and cause mould.


With the Alu-Cab Gen 3 roof tent this is a really easy process as it is a super quick erect and only seconds to put pack away.
