The Grand Tour Tent

Here's a look at their new travelling tent! If it wasn't for the fabric roof, you wouldn't even know that the studio was portable.

Makes sense that it's portable, by truck, since after all the show takes places in a number of locations so they need a setup like that. It's just about the best roof setup, ideal for most weather conditions they'll be in

That tent is pretty darn crazy. That's bigger than average houses ...

The first picture makes the tent look like a cabin in the desert. Can't imagine the logistics that goes into moving the tent and everything in it.

That was going to be my follow up question. How the heck does this thing get transported ?! I mean it has full flooring, huge posts, clearly very well wired and ready for stage lights and the works.

With a truck big enough to carry all of it but in designing it they'll make sure its easy enough to transport. To some it might look hard to move around.

I guess if they can move full houses, a giant tent shouldn't be an issue...

Best example is to look at how movie production companies construct and deconstruct their film sites. You'd be surprised at what they can do, all from whats hauled in by truck.

Yeaa that's true.. never really thought about that. They often have very elaborate and large setups as well

Hopefully they'll show us some behind the scenes footage to see how all this gets setup and how long. Just rather not have that limited to instagram coverage.
