If you need more space than the standard Space offers, you can bump up to the 3-person XXL variant. Identical to its smaller brother, it also offers the innovative sloped roof with extra height at the footwell. The Space and Space XXL models add a truncated strut system to the forward end of the tent to bolster foot room by 22-inches while retaining a tall peak of 52-inches in the rear. It offers the best of both worlds of extra wiggle room at the footwell, and added headroom.
Like the Discovery and Extreme series tents, the dual doors and large wrap-around windows pro-vide 270-degree views to let in extra light. A rear panel creates a convenient portal through which to pass gear from the back gate of the vehicle. Mesh backing on the window panels keep bugs at bay while inviting a cooling cross breeze. The raked roofline also helps air circulate within the tent.
Made of fiberglass-reinforced polyester, the low-profile hull is aerodynamically shaped for optimal fuel efficiency. A rear aileron and external ribs help direct air over the shell to reduce wind noise at highway speeds. Dust-proof ventilation ports on either side expel moisture from within the closed tent to help mitigate the buildup of mildew. The shell is available in white, grey, or black gel-coat colors.
A hallmark of every James Baroud tent is the proprietary canvas. The aluminized polyester fabric is coated with an acrylic layer to yield unrivaled storm worthiness, durability, UV-resistance, and breathability. In warm temperatures the canvas reflects solar heat to help maintain a cool and comfortable internal temperature. For use in cooler weather, an optional Isothermic liner bolsters warmth and helps reduce condensation. Like all of their tents, the Space XXL was tested to wind speeds of 60mph. Even in a howling gale, the fabric walls remain taut with no buffeting to disturb a good night’s sleep.
Inside the tent a 3-inch thick mattress spans the entire 65×89-inch floor. The high-density foam is wrapped in a soft, removable cover for maximum comfort. The refined ergonomics extend to the rounded ladder rungs designed for use with bare feet. Machined aluminum attachment points on both sides of the hull ensure the ladder remains locked securely in place.
The Space XXL includes a detachable LED internal light, storage pockets, an internal cargo net, and a solar-powered ventilation fan to help move air through the tent in extreme conditions. The fan is silent with an internal battery providing up to 24 hours of power.
Beneath the hull, two aluminum tracks mount the tent to any standard rack system and permit a wide range of adjustment to ensure proper positioning. Galvanized mounting hardware defends against rust and corrosion.
The Space XXL’s large-gauge zippers, double-stitched seams, and durable mesh panels ensure years of hard use. Certified by Germany’s Tüv Rheinland organization, the Space XXL is backed by an industry leading 5-year warranty. The Space XXL is ideally suited to larger vehicles or people in need of extra storage capacity, headroom, and overall internal volume.
