HIGH TECH TEXTILES - Airtex®

Condensation is a natural phenomenon in a campsite tent. When the outside temperature falls below the temperature inside the tent, the moisture in the air condenses on the inside walls of the tent in the form of water droplets. This usually happens in the evening, at night, or at high altitudes when the fabric is coldest.


On the basis of many years of experience with the best materials, Autohome has chosen high-quality Airtex® for its new Airlander Plus 360° X-Large, Air-Sky 360°, Grand Tour 360° and Airtop 360° models. Airtex® is extremely versatile, waterproof and strong, and transmits water vapor rapidly, removing it from inside the tent. So condensation is no longer a problem.

BE AWARE OF FALSE CERTIFICATIONS

There are roof tents on the market that do not have any real product certification. Beware of certifications such as ISO 9001 that some sellers advertise because they concern the company organization and are not at all a guarantee of the quality and security of the tent you are going to buy.

On the contrary, Autohome roof tents have passed stringent quality tests of the materials used, carried out in the laboratories of qualified Bodies, including the German TÜV.

With Autohome, quality is standard: production is not differentiated. The tents used by experts in the most extreme conditions, explorers, travel professionals, and adventurers are exactly the same as all the others: the highest quality tents from Autohome, with over 65 years of experience, are available to everyone.
