Before you buy a roof top tent, you must be certain that it is worth the investment isn’t it?

I’m sure I did. I wanted to make certain it would be worthwhile before parting with my hard-earned money.

With this crucial concern to consider, the section will try to assist you in focusing your thoughts and help you think about topics such as the expected usage, how much you will need to spend for a tent you’d like, how many people can sleep in it, where you can put it, and the benefits of tents on roofs.

When you consider all of these questions, we hope you’ll be able to consider it worthwhile buying a roof tent box.

Q. Do you think a tent with a roof is worth the cost?

A. Let’s face it, roof top tents can cost only a few bucks. They’re more expensive than a regular ground tent, but they’re cheaper than a camper car or motor home that offers similar comfort due to the huge mattress inside.

The question of whether a roof tent is worth it is a matter of opinion as an individual’s price may be other person’s price. But, in order to evaluate the cost of a ground tent with the roof tent, we’ve compiled the following list which attempts in answering the query: is the roof top tent worth it?

Q. The amount you’d like to spend as well as the anticipated use:

A. A standard hard-shell tent would cost around EUR1500 and if you upgrade it to protection from the elements and add accessories such as a solar panels and batteries for about EUR2000 and higher. It is logical to spend that much money for a tent, it is best you’ll use it often or enjoy camping so much, yet hate ground tents which makes a lot of sense to own one. If you’re an occasional three times a year camper , it could be more beneficial to invest around a hundred dollars for a ground tent and buy the top of the line.

However certain of our customers are more financially savvy and do not like spending EUR2k on a tent roof which they use couple of times per year. They appreciate the level of comfort, ease of set-up and tear down ease that a tent gives. It is important to identify what customer segment you are part of and decide on your purchase accordingly.

Personally, I go camping about five times per year. I wouldn’t return to using an outdoor tent however, that’s only me. I don’t earn much money, but I have saved up for a significant amount of time to purchase my very first tent with a roof.

Q. What kind of camping do you would like to experience:

A. If you enjoy trekking through forests or across mountains, a roof top tent isn’t suitable for you since your options are limited by the size of your car and the flat terrain you have to camp and sleep in a comfortable , flat location.
But, if you primarily utilize campsites, and you might want to extend the options for pitching and sleeping by putting flat ground adjacent to forests, beaches, lakes and the surrounding countryside, then the roof top tent is something you should consider. Choose a tent equipped with a solar panel as well as a battery pack and you’ll not require a location close to a camping area since you’ll have the ability to use to charge and light any device you have on your trip.

Q. The type of your vehicle:

A. If you own an convertible or motorbike, it is obvious that you can’t install a roof tent onto the same vehicles. Only certain cars are suitable for these tents since they are bulky, heavy that require roof bar or roof racks to be put in place first. If you’re unsure whether your vehicle, van, or SUV is appropriate and you are thinking of purchasing a car tent look over our FAQ page for information about roof load limitations and the best way to determine whether a car is suitable.

A. The two main functions of the roof top tent is to give the user or occupants with more convenience and comfort.

With a pop-up roof tent when the clips are released the tent will then move into place thanks to hydraulics that are positioned around the corners. Once you’ve done using the tent, it is easy to shut the clips and the tent which means you’ll be able to leave in less than two minutes.

Q. How many people can stay in a tent on top of a roof?

A. It is based upon the dimensions of the tent you’ve purchased. A standard-sized roof tent should measure approximately. the width of 125cm and will allow two adults to comfortably sleep. Larger clamshell or pop-up roof tents are approximately 140cm. This is nearly the width of a queen-sized double bed. Two adults and one child can be accommodated in this dimension.

You can join an annex with waterproof construction to the sides of some folding tents. These annexes offer additional living space in which items can be stored. Alternatively, additional camping beds can be set up to sleep.

Q. Do you have the ability to use it for the floor?

A. Yes you can put up the roof of a tent over the ground, but why would you need to? This isn’t serving its objective.
