How To Set Up Your Rooftop Tent

All you need to do to get your rooftop tent ready for use is just travel to your chosen camping spot, open the tent, lower its ladder and it’s ready to use.

Most of these tents have been designed to fit vehicle rack systems comfortably and the tents are easy to install. Getting ready for that next great adventure couldn’t be easier.

Types of Rooftop Tents: More Info

There are two main varieties of rooftop tents: Hard and Soft Shell.

How do you choose what is the best one for your needs? Just read on to find out.

Choosing The Right Tent

There are many benefits to either kind of tent. Determining the right one for you comes down to a variety of factors, such as how many people you need it to sleep, the amount of gear you’re bringing and how you plan to go camping.

Soft Shell

Soft shell tents are more common than their hard shell counterparts. These tents fold in half and are lighter in weight than hard shell tents. Soft shell tents are also more cost effective than hard shell. 

Only one half of the tent mounts to the roof rack itself – the other is supported and kept upright by a ladder that extends from your open tent to the ground. To take your tent down, all you’ll need to do is to fold it back over, collapse the ladder and replace any travel covers.

These tents are highly popular due to their convenience and compatibility with a wide range of environments. Some are even large enough to feature additional room modules. That makes them an excellent choice for an endless list of adventures ahead.

Hard Shell

Hard shell tents are the ultimate roof top tent systems. Simply unlock the latches to pop them open. Their quick setup and tear-down processes make them an ideal choice for quick, ‘stop-and-go’ style camping. They also look amazing!

Hard shell tents, such as the iKamper Skycamp, are faster and easier to set up and set down. The dual skin hard shell also provides better insulation inside the tent and reduces noise from wind and rain.

There are different sizes available to suit all your camping needs. The larger sized iKamper Skycamp 2.0 features a massive King Size mattress!
