The Acura MDX is a great all-around vehicle for the city, but also for rough terrain. If you are looking for a perfect vehicle for a camping trip with a rooftop tent, the Acura MDX is ideal. The MDX offers a lot of space inside to take your whole family with you, but also a lot of additional camping equipment. Likewise, the roof of the Acura MDX is large enough to accommodate a six-person rooftop tent.

So your whole family can sleep at a safe height on the vehicle roof. A rooftop tent offers many advantages over a ground tent. In a roof tent, you are safe from small and large animals, you are safe from water on the ground, or even from the cold at night.

A rooftop tent also has many advantages over a camping trailer or RV. You can stay overnight wherever your vehicle comes.

All you need to mount a rooftop tent on the roof of the Acura MDX are roof rails (if your vehicle doesn’t have factory roof rails), and roof crossbars. The roof rails are screwed to the factory mounting points on the roof of the Acura MDX. Then the crossbars are screwed to the roof rails. This gives you a safe and stable basis for mounting the roof tent.

The rooftop tent is then simply connected to the crossbars at four mounting spots. In this way, the weight of the rooftop tent and the weight of the people staying in the roof tent are optimally distributed over the vehicle body.

Although the Acura MDX’s specified permissible roof load is relatively low, this only applies to the vehicle that is in motion (if you are transporting a roof boy, for example). As soon as the vehicle is stationary, the permissible roof load increases many times over. You can also mount a large six-person rooftop tent on the roof of the Acura MDX. Of course, you also have the option of installing a smaller rooftop tent, which you can of course decide for yourself.

You can reach the rooftop tent via a telescopic ladder that is mounted on the rooftop tent. A rooftop tent is therefore also suitable for children and adults.

You can buy a new rooftop tent or buy a used rooftop tent. Further down on this page, you will find a few examples of the most popular rooftop tents for the Acura MDX.

You can buy the roof rails or roof crossbars for the Acura MDX either from your car dealership or online. The assembly is relatively easy.

The assembly of the rooftop tent is also very easy, as each rooftop tent has four mounting spots on the underside. The hardest part is lifting the rooftop tent onto the vehicle roof.

Is it difficult to install a roof rack tent?

No! On the contrary, with most models you only have to screw the underside of the tent floor to the roof rack of your vehicle. The best way to do this is with two people, as the roof rack tent is relatively heavy. After you have tightened all the screws properly, you can put full load on the tent.

Is it difficult to clean the tent?

No, you can easily clean the outside of the tent with water and a little detergent. The inside of the tent is also best cleaned with soap and water. Make sure that the inside of the tent is completely dry before you fold it up and store it. Otherwise it could happen that mold could form in the tent due to the high humidity.

How many people can sleep on the roof of the car in the tent?

It all depends on the size of the tent. You can also sleep with three people in a two-person tent. The weight does not play such a big role here, as the tent is not supported on the roof of the car, but on the supporting pillars (A-pillar & C-pillar) of the car or truck. This means that the weight is always evenly distributed over the entire vehicle.

Everything there for assembly?

The Roof Rack Tents are mounted on the Roof Rack Crossbar of your car. You need these brackets for your car roof. If you don't have a roof retention system yet, you can find one with us! Just click HERE.
