Are you interested in camping and are you looking for a way to spend your next camping trip as comfortably as possible? The Audi A6 offers the ideal basis for spending a great camping weekend without having to rely on a large camping trailer or RV. Likewise, you don’t need to sleep in an uncomfortable ground tent. The Audi A6 offers enough space inside to take your entire family with you. The Audi A6 also offers enough space on the vehicle roof to mount a large four-person rooftop tent and thus experience a comfortable camping weekend (or longer…).

A rooftop tent offers many advantages over other types of camping. With a rooftop tent, you are very mobile. You can set up the rooftop tent in just a few minutes and fold it up again and drive to a new campground. A rooftop tent also offers protection from small and large animals due to its elevated position. A rooftop tent also protects you from water or rain that can form on the campground floor. A rooftop tent is also warmer than a ground tent because the rooftop tent is mounted on the vehicle roof and is so far from the cold ground.

For example, you can mount a hard-shell or soft-shell rooftop tent on the roof of the Audi A6. A hard-shell rooftop tent is quicker to set up than a soft-shell rooftop tent but usually offers less interior space. A soft-shell rooftop tent offers more interior features. When buying a rooftop tent, however, you should make sure that the roof tent is not wider than your vehicle.

All you need to mount a rooftop tent on the vehicle roof of the Audi A6 are the appropriate roof rails and roof crossbars. The roof rails are firmly attached to the roof of the Audi A6. The A6 offers factory mounting spots for this. The crossbars are then attached to the roof rails, providing a stable base to mount the roof tent.

The weight of the rooftop tent and the people in the roof tent is optimally distributed over the entire vehicle body via the crossbars and roof rails. This means that neither the roof nor the body of the Audi A6 is damaged.

The registered permissible roof load of the Audi A6 is relatively low, but this refers to the vehicle in motion. This is important, for example, when transporting a roof box on the roof. But once the vehicle is stationary, the roof or roof rails can be subjected to more stress. This makes it easy to set up a four-person rooftop tent.

When choosing a new rooftop tent, make sure that the roof tent is not wider than the vehicle when folded.

You must also note that fuel consumption increases with the rooftop tent installed and the maximum range of the vehicle is reduced. The driving behavior can also deteriorate due to the additional weight on the compartment. You must therefore always be very careful when you are out and about with the rooftop tent. If possible, you should always remove the rooftop tent and store it in the garage when you don’t need it.

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?
