You're probably thinking -- a tent on the roof of a car? Really?
Sleeping up off the ground isn't anything new. You do it every night. If it makes sense at home, why shouldn't you have the same convenience on a vacation?
Roof top mounted tents have been a standard in camping around the world for several decades. It offers 2 huge advantages over sleeping on the ground:
- keeps you and the tent clear of critters and weather elements.
- provides a quick and effortless bedroom set up and break down.
All our roof top tents come standard with a foam sleeping pad, so all you need to do is add pillows and sleeping bags, or sheets and a comforter, and you'll have an instant, safe, comfortable sleeping solution.
The tent stores on your vehicle's roof top collapsed, folded in half, with all your sleeping accessories (even your pajamas), inside. When you want to set up camp, all you have to do is remove the protective cover, fold open the tent with one simple motion and you'll be relaxing in no time. Instant comfort. Instant Zzzzz's.
And if it rains, you'll no longer have to worry about water pooling around the tent and folding up a muddy tent after a terrible night's sleep. (There's nothing better than enjoying a passing storm from a cozy, dry, raised tent!)
With a roof top tent you can sleep comfortably in uneven and rocky terrain - places where sleeping on the ground is either not possible or suitable. And the tents can be configured to open up over the rear of the vehicle, either side, or even over the hood.
Roof top tents are cheaper and more convenient than a travel trailer and ideal for both long vacations and as an alternative to short hotel stays. And having a roof top tent frees up space inside your vehicle. Think of what you can do with that extra storage room once you remove the bedding and tent from the pack.
We carry the Front Runner Feather-lite Tent -- the industry's lightest and lowest profile roof top tent, and the most popular models of Eezi Awn - the world's leader in roof top tents.
Whether you've stopped for the night, or a quick snack during the day, if you're planning to hang out outside your vehicle, you need protection from the elements.
The Front Runner Feather-Lite series offers 2 awning choices:
The Front Runner Folding Awning fits into a small flat bag that can be carried strapped to any roof rack or stored inside the vehicle. This folding awning can me mounted off the vehicle or it can even be used free standing anywhere at your campsite or home.
The Front Runner Easy-Out Awning is a more traditional vehicle mounted awning that sets up quickly and easily.
