The Acura RDX is one of the best vehicles for stationary and also for off-road use. The Acura RDX offers enough space in the vehicle and also on the vehicle roof to spend your next camping holiday in the rooftop tent on the vehicle roof.

With the Acura RDX, you have the option of mounting a very large six-person rooftop tent on the roof. With the large rooftop tent, you don’t need to buy or rent an expensive camping trailer or RV. Wherever your vehicle goes, you can also spend the night with a rooftop tent.

A rooftop tent also has great advantages over a ground tent, as the elevated position on the vehicle roof means you are safe from small and large animals. Likewise, in a rooftop tent, you are safe from water that collects on the ground, or from the cold that comes out of the ground at night.

All you need to mount a rooftop tent on the roof of the Acura RDX are roof rails and roof crossbars. The roof rails are firmly attached to the vehicle roof with screws. The Acura RDX has factory mounting spots on the roof for roof rails. Then all you have to do is attach the crossbars. Now you can screw the rooftop tent to the crossbars at four points. (All rooftop tents are attached to four mounting spots on the underside with the crossbars)

You can reach the rooftop tent using a telescopic ladder that is mounted on the rooftop tent. So you can easily get into the roof tent when it is mounted on the Acura RDX.

You have the option of mounting a small two to three-person roof tent on the Acura RDX, but you also have the option of mounting a very large six-person rooftop tent. The Acura RDX offers you all possibilities due to its size.

The permissible roof load specified for the Acura RDX is relatively low, but this always only refers to the vehicle in motion. This plays a big role if you mount a roof box on the roof of the Acura RDX, for example.

As soon as the vehicle is stationary, the permissible roof load increases many times over. You can also mount a large rooftop tent on the roof. So you can stay or sleep with your whole family in the rooftop tent on the roof of the Acura RDX without any problems.

The additional weight from the roof tent and the people is optimally dissipated via the roof rails to the entire vehicle body. The additional weight will not damage the roof or the body.

However, you should note that installing the rooftop tent increases fuel consumption and thus greatly reduces the maximum range. The driving behavior of the Acura RDX can also deteriorate as the vehicle’s center of gravity shifts further upwards. You should therefore only assemble the roof tent if you really need it.

If you are looking for a suitable rooftop tent for the Acura RDX, you will find a few examples further down on this page.

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.
