The Zempire Aerobase Shelter At A Glance

Zempire Aerobase Shelter Review

At a glance, the Zempire Aerobase is a fantastic addition to any day trip or camping holiday!

It provides 3.5 x 3.5m of space for you and your family and friends to enjoy. It is durable, with excellent ventilation and so can be used in many different weather conditions.

It is quick and easy to set up, taking just a few minutes.

Easy Set Up

This product is so easy to set up and use! It can be up in a matter of minutes. All it requires is simple inflation using the pump provided and a couple of poles. Then you can get pegging!

This is what makes this product stand out from others of its kind which are much harder and more time consuming to put up.

You won’t even break a sweat putting up this product! It can be used as a day shelter or an addition to your camping holiday set-up and it can be taken down and put back up so easily!

Weather Conditions

This product is designed to be used in all weathers. It has been used in the rain, snow and wind as well as very hot weather. It has been designed to withstand all of these different weather conditions.

This product has been designed to be very successfully waterproof, no matter what the weather. It has waterproof window covers that can be put down and taken up in the rain.

The Zempire Aerobase Shelter is extremely strong when faced with strong winds and the poles and inflatable sections can withstand strong winds.


This shelter is strong and durable and will withstand any weather conditions.

While some small wear and tear is normal, you can rely on this tent to stay up in all weather. The poles, the tent material and the zips can all withstand all kinds of weather.



The layout of the Zempire Aerobase Shelter is fantastic. It is a dome shape with inflatable poles that cross over to create a peak.

The height of the Aerobase is second to none as it is very tall and allows lots of room for whatever activities you are hoping to do!

It really does add a great extra space to your camping experience, or provides you with a big space if you’re looking to use it as a standalone product.


The Zempire Aerobase Shelter has excellent ventilation. This means the shelter is fantastic for hot camping experiences, adding some extra shade anda respite for the heat.

The air flow is great on this product as the windows can be opened to leave just a mesh panel. This allows the air to flow through the product while also keeping the bugs out!

The product also contains upper vents that allow the humid air to escape, which also minimizes condensation build-up.

The upper vents also help in the wind, as they prevent the shelter from catching underneath and being lifted by it.


One of the most important things about camping holidays is making sure that you can fit all you need into your car! It might be a bit like a game of tetris if you’re off on holiday with a family of 4.

This product is very lightweight and compact. This means it is easy to transport. Given the amount of space it will take up in the car (not much!) it is definitely worth a buy!

It will give you ample more living space on site and will make sure you and your family and friends have a great space to reside to if the weather is playing up!


The shelter comes in a compact bag. This bag includes everything you will need to set up and use your Zempire Aerobase Shelter. The pack contains:

  • The shelter body
  • A deluxe wall (you have the option to keep one wall open, or close it up)
  • Fiberglass pole set
  • Peg bag (containing 4 sand pegs and 16 dome pegs as well as 3.5mm guy ropes)
  • Double action pump (containing a carry bag)
  • Repair kit for any small issues with your shelter (containing adhesive tube patches and zip ties)
  • An instruction manual to help with pitching your tent and packing it away.
  • 2 compression straps

One small flaw with this product is the lack of pegs provided. 4 sand pegs is not really enough to peg down the shelter, as, if you would like to peg the doors down to stop the wind from making them flap, you won’t have enough!


It is easy enough to solve, however, because you can purchase pegs from any camping shop. It is a bit of a shame they don’t provide a few more of these in the pack, though!

Alongside this shelter, you also have the option to purchase the following accessories:

  • A roof cover. This will help to reduce the heat inside the shelter when you are using it in very hot weather. It can also be used to protect the roof of the shelter from sun damage.
  • Ground sheet. This helps to keep your area nice and clean and tidy. You don’t want a squelchy, muddy area!
  • Additional wall. This can be used as a windbreak if the weather is not so good, or extra shade if the sun is shining!
