Aerodome III Pro Reviews
Posted onExcellent tent - great value for moneyExcellent value - really well made. We camped and it poured for 3 days straight (poured - not drizzled!) and the tent stood up to the weather and kept us all dry - not one leak. Love the windows so people can't see you and the ventilation is great also. Easy to pack away for a large tent. I bought the 12v pump so putting up the tent is a breeze. Highly recommend.
Posted onGreat tentAwsome tent love the room inside, and the great use of windows and doors
Posted onGreat tentStarting camping again this year and are very happy with this tent given we are a family of 6 (you need a big car). Useful storage rooms tucked away so you can't see it and many side pockets. Best to use the hand pump since the electric one just goes too fast.
Posted onPlenty of room to moveWe love our aerodome 3! As a family of 4, the kids each get a bedroom to themselves, a big bedroom for the adults and there’s still a huge ‘lounge room’ as we call it to get changed in and for activities when it’s raining outside plus the ‘alfresco’ is perfect for our fridge, pantry and kitchen essentials. Plenty of room for extra guests too!
Posted onOrsome tentGreat tent easy set up and heaps of room. Best tent and more room than our old caravan and awning
Posted onSo easyJust purchased and had a practice run for our usual summer camping trip! The kids are happy as won’t take us hours to set up this year! Also purchased a few assesories, cannot wait to stay in our home away from home!
Posted onExcellent qualityWe brought our tent 2017 and are so glad we went with the Aerodome lll pro. Zempire have thought of everything with this tent, it is simple and quick to put up, ample room for the whole family and the built in wardrobes and wall pockets are excellent to keep the tent looking spacious and uncluttered. It handles a gale like its a sea breeze and is far more stable than a regular dome tent. There is so much room inside that everyone can have their own space and you are not stepping all over each others stuff. Would definitely recommend to anyone, I have not seen another tent that could come close to meeting the quality and design of the aerodome series
Posted onJust amazing!We were looking for a new family tent in late 2017 and really hadn't considered the inflatable ones but once seeing one at the local a&p show I was sold, I dragged my partner into the stockist store and luckily there was one still in the country (obviously very popular) our first trip using it we were amazed to how easy it was to assemble and especially impressed to how it holds up in a gale, it doesn't move! The inbuilt wardrobes are genius and help keep the clutter down. Would recommend also buying the ground sheet not only for floor protection but to figure out where in the camping ground this mothership sized tent will fit! All our mates and families are amazed when they see it and I would not hesitate to recommend this tent to anyone. The only downside is the sheer size and weight of it when packed up, but that's also a good sign on the quality you are getting when you purchase this tent. You won't be disappointed
Posted onFantastic tent!We were after a large family tent that was good quality, spacious and quick and easy to put up and the Zempire Aerodome definitely ticked all of the boxes!
The tent is a great size, with ample living space. We decided to only use two of the three sleeping pods which meant we extended the living space even further once the pod was removed. This was done by simply unclipping it from the ceiling and floor. The bedrooms are also a good size, easily fitting the Zempire Megamat Twin in each. There is plenty of hanging pocket space both inside and outside the bedrooms. It was quick and easy to erect although we did have a practice before heading to the camp site with it for the first time. Taking it down was even easier, just open up the valves and the tent instantly deflates. The bag it came with was large so we didn’t have any trouble getting the tent back in after it had deflated however given the price and weight of the tent, it would have been nice to have a bag with wheels to make it easier to transport. The ventilation was excellent when needed and equally was not draughty in cold windy weather. Condensation was also kept to a minimum. We are very happy with this tent and perhaps the only downside (which is also a positive) is its size. It is very big and I would check pitch sizes to make sure it would fit!
Everyone who saw the tent thought it was great – we would definitely recommend it.

Posted onGreat Family Tent!I have just had to talk a moment from our camping holiday at the Blue Lakes in Rotorua, to say how amazed we are with our new Zempire Aerodome III tent. This tent has just successfully navigated a recent category 2/3 tropical storm event across NZ. This is our first time using the tent, and what a test!! The tent performed extremely well, with massive rainfall and high winds (gusting 120km) for a sustained 24 hour period. Even though we had some hairy moments! It was very reassuring with the inflatable poles that they bounced back in the high gusts. Fibreglass may not have faired so well. Well done Zempire for producing a great family tent, we are so glad to have selected the Zempire as I don’t believe our previous 360 would have been up to the task. My only small criticism is that the cable ties on the zips need to be stronger. As I said it’s our first time using the tent and we have had two zip ties blow apart from the glue holding them together so far.

Aerodome III Pro Additional Info
• Ensure guy ropes are out at all times during use.
• Never pack your tent away wet. If you must take your tent down when wet, ensure that it is dried completely as soon as possible to prevent mildew from forming.
• If mildew does form on your tent, wash off with warm water and a soft brush to prevent further growth, do not use soap or detergents.
• Do not use an open flame inside your tent. The fabric has been treated with a fire retardant but is in no way fire-proof.
• It is important that lower vents are opened at all times to reduce condensation. During humid or damp conditions, it is recommended that the waterproof door covers are opened to expose the mesh layer, enabling additional airflow throughout your tent.
• Do not use open-cell foam mats directly on the tent floor. This can cause condensation between the mat and floor and if not dried out, can lead to mildew from forming.
