Each segment of the tent is denoted by a letter, each larger part has a number, and even the very tiniest bits have their own code. Everything fits together like a well-engineered construction set. “Using the manual, even amateurs could put it together, but I reckon it would take them a couple of weeks instead of two days. The frame itself is just the beginning, something like a skeleton,” explains Mahrík. The individual parts are systematically stored in the truck so that each comes out exactly at the right moment. Inside, there are large aluminium parts, floor tiles, toolkits, bolts and ropes. A perfect travelling Tetris. “We fill the semi-trailer to the brim. In the end, the only thing there’s room for is a pair of gloves. Then, we shut the door and set off,” smiles Mahrík.
The tent also has a winter version, which the team uses at Rally Sweden, for example. More fabric fitted to the basic construction to prevent heat escaping from the heated tent and to keep the temperature comfortable even in freezing conditions. The canvas parts need to be replaced regularly, roughly every two years.
