The Acura RLX is a great car for the city, but the Acura RLX is also ideal for spending a great weekend camping with the whole family.

The Acura RLX offers enough interior space to take your whole family with you. The trunk of the Acura RLX is large enough to take the necessary camping equipment with you.

The roof of the Acura RLX also offers enough space to mount a large four-person rooftop tent. The big advantage of a rooftop tent on the vehicle roof is that you can safely sleep at a certain height above the ground. For example, you are safe from small and large animals. But on the roof of the Acura RLX, you are also safe from moisture or the nightly cold that comes from the ground.

When you install a rooftop tent on the vehicle roof, you no longer need an uncomfortable ground tent, you also don’t need an expensive camping trailer or RV. With a rooftop tent, you can camp wherever your vehicle is going. Setting up a rooftop tent usually takes no longer than two to three minutes.

All you need to mount a rooftop tent on the roof of the Acura RLX are the appropriate roof rails and roof crossbars. The roof rails are bolted to the vehicle using the original roof mounting spots. The crossbars are used to mount the rooftop tent on the roof.

The rooftop tent is connected to the crossbars at four points. This creates a secure and stable connection to the vehicle. The additional weight from the roof tent and the people in the roof tent is safely transferred to the body via the roof rails. So neither the roof nor the body of the Acura RLX is damaged.

Although the registered permissible roof load of the Acura RLX is somewhat low, this information always applies to the vehicle in motion. As soon as the vehicle is stationary, the permissible roof load of the Acura RLX increases many times over. So you can easily sleep or stay with up to four adults on the roof in the rooftop tent.

When buying a rooftop tent for the Acura RLX, you should make sure that the rooftop tent is not wider than the vehicle when folded.

You must also note that the mounted rooftop tent increases fuel consumption and thus reduces the maximum range.

The driving characteristics of the Acura RLX also deteriorate because the vehicle’s center of gravity is shifted further upwards due to the mounted rooftop tent. You should therefore always drive very carefully with the assembled rooftop tent and only assemble the roof tent when you really need it.

In general, you can buy any rooftop tent for the Acura RLX, since all rooftop tents are universal. Each rooftop tent is connected to the vehicle/roof crossbars at four mounting points. So you can buy a two to four-person rooftop tent.

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.
