The Audi Q7 is not only a luxurious SUV for the city, you can also make the most of the Q7 to spend your camping weekends with. The interior of the Audi Q7 offers a lot of space to take your whole family with you, and also to take various camping equipment with you.

The Audi Q7 is particularly suitable for installing a rooftop tent. With a rooftop tent, you don’t need a camping trailer, ground tent, or even an expensive RV to have a comfortable camping adventure.

A rooftop tent offers a lot of space, many features and is easy to set up. A rooftop tent also saves a lot of space. If you don’t need the rooftop tent grad, you can simply store it in your garage or in the basement.

A rooftop tent also offers you protection, for example, from small or large animals due to the elevated position on the vehicle roof. In a rooftop tent you are also protected from water or rain on the ground. Likewise, you no longer have any problems with the cold that penetrates from the ground into a ground tent at night.

All you need to mount a rooftop tent on the roof of the Audi Q7 are roof crossbars. The crossbars are mounted on the factory roof rails of the Audi Q7. The roof crossbars then form a stable and secure basis for mounting the rooftop tent on the vehicle roof.

The rooftop tent is screwed to the crossbars at four points and is thus securely connected to the vehicle. In principle, every rooftop tent has the same fastenings. So you don’t have to worry that your new rooftop tent won’t fit on your vehicle.

The roof of the Audi Q7 is very large, so you can also mount a large six-person rooftop tent. Of course, you can also set up a smaller three or four-person rooftop tent if a six-person rooftop tent is too big for you.

You can also choose whether you want to buy a hard-shell or a soft-shell rooftop tent. A hard-shell rooftop tent is easier to set up but offers less interior space. A soft-shell rooftop tent takes a little longer to set up but offers more space and more equipment.

Further down on this page, you will also find a few examples of the most popular rooftop tents for the Audi Q7. You also have the option of buying a rooftop tent, which has an awning, so you have an extra sheltered space that can also protect you from wind or rain.

The additional weight of the rooftop tent and the people staying in the rooftop tent is optimally transferred to the entire vehicle body via the crossbars and the roof rails. The Audi Q7 is therefore not damaged by a rooftop tent.

The registered permissible roof load of the Audi Q7 is given as somewhat low, but this always refers to the vehicle in motion. This is only important if you are transporting a roof box or other loads on the vehicle roof, for example.

As soon as the vehicle is standing still, the roof or rather the roof rails can be subjected to a much higher load. You can set up a large six-person rooftop tent and up to six adults can stay in the rooftop tent.

However, you must always bear in mind that installing a rooftop tent increases fuel consumption and thus reduces the maximum range. The driving behavior can also deteriorate due to the rooftop tent since the center of gravity of the vehicle shifts further upwards. So you should always drive very carefully and think about the increased fuel consumption when traveling.

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.

Since I got a roof rack tent, I have been out in nature a lot more and go camping very often. It's just great to be able to pitch your tent so easily and anywhere!

I sold my RV and bought a jeep with a roof rack tent mounted on it. That was the best decision i ever made. I can pitch my tent anywhere in the desert with my jeep and spend the night there. I would never have come to these places with my RV.

My friend and I bought a roof tent for our car and now drive it almost every weekend into the wilderness and pitch our tent where it suits us. We're just excited about our new roof rack tent and never want to go camping without a roof tent again.
