2 years ago

Ogawa is a long-established outdoor brand from Japan with a history of more than 40 years, and their classic style of so-called “steel tents” such as the “Owner Lodge” is gaining popularity again. A new item that condenses Ogawa’s uniqueness has been created, in which the popular steel tent can be connected to a car and used as a car side tarp.

Speaking of Ogawa, in addition to the Owner Lodge, they are a manufacturer that continues to produce hit products such as the Pilz and Apollo, and the “Car-side Series” is a popular branch hidden within their lineup. In 2022, which marks the 20th anniversary of the launch of the Car-side series, the “Car-side Lodge,” which can only be made by Ogawa, is a combination of the steel-framed tent, which is also a symbol of Ogawa, and the Car-side series.

The car-side lodge is a steel frame lodge type shelter that can be used by connecting to a car with a height of 170 to 200 cm. Of course, the lattice windows, which can be said to be the symbol of the owner lodge, are still present.

Compared to conventional car side tarps, it has less dead space and is more comfortable to relax in. In addition, if you use the separately sold ratchet pole, you can enjoy an open style with overhanging sides. Also, because it is equipped with a large mesh on the entire surface, it has excellent breathability during summer.

It can also be used as a shelter by itself without connecting it to a car. It seems like it can be really useful as a shelter while auto camping or staying overnight in a car.

The Carside Lodge is scheduled to go on sale on February 2022.
