Roof Top Tent

DRAWING A LOT OF ATTENTION IN THE CAMPGROUND
This is us waiting in the ferry line up last July long weekend. It folds down to a nice neat package on top. I love.



This is Hubs surfing the tent. It brings out the silliness in all of us.



And little bub can't wait until bedtime. Okay, that never happens but he loves it nonetheless.



We tried the front configuration on our last trip.



Here is the side configuration.



And the side configuration with our 'foyer' attached. My fave so far.



I may not actually be the camping type. I'm still testing it out. But I have to say I love our tent. It's nice being up high away from the damp, chilly ground. I love the foamie inside. And I love how dark and dry it is inside. Other makers of these types of tents are here and here.

Actually we are members! I've posted some photos of our "Ellie" with the rooftop tent on the EOC site.

DO YUO USE DE OEM ROOF RACK? ITS POSSIBLE USE IT? SUPORTS ONLY 76 LBS RIGHT? GREATS PICTURES¡

Jackie Boucher said...

Good question. It turns out the 76 lb limit (or whatever limit on the brand of roof rack you have) is for when the car is moving. The impact of 76 lbs becomes much more when driving at highway speeds, for example. It's a physics thing. But when the car is parked in the campsite, it can hold a fully loaded tent.
