The Hyundai Palisade is a great car for the city, but also for the rough terrain. The Hyundai Palisade offers a lot of space inside to transport your whole family, but also a lot of space on the vehicle roof to mount a large rooftop tent.

If you own a Hyundai Palisade, you don’t need a camping trailer or even an expensive RV to have a great camping adventure. You also don’t need an uncomfortable ground tent to experience a camping trip with the whole family.

A rooftop tent offers many advantages. So you can camp wherever your vehicle goes and where you would never go with a heavy camping trailer or RV. The Hyundai Palisade also allows you to discover campgrounds that you would otherwise never be able to reach.

Since this makes it very easy to set up and dismantle a rooftop tent, you can often change the campground to discover new great places. Likewise, a rooftop tent also offers the advantage that you sleep at a safe height above the ground. So you are safe from small and large animals. But you are also safe from the nightly cold that comes out of the ground, or water or rain that collects on the ground.

All you need to mount a rooftop tent on the Hyundai Palisade vehicle roof are the appropriate roof rails (some models of the Hyundai Palisade already have factory roof rails, so of course you don’t need to buy new roof rails) and roof crossbars. The crossbars are attached to the roof rails and thus provide a stable basis for mounting the rooftop tent. Rooftop tents are attached to four mounting spots on the crossbars. Some rooftop tent models also offer the option of mounting directly on the roof rails.

The weight of the rooftop tent and the people in the rooftop tent is transferred to the entire vehicle body via the roof rails. This means that neither the vehicle roof nor the body is damaged.

You have the option of mounting a large six-person rooftop tent on the vehicle roof of the Hyundai Palisade. For example, you can buy a hard-shell or soft-shell rooftop tent. A hard-shell rooftop tent usually offers less interior space than a soft-shell tent but is quicker and easier to set up.

Further down on this page, you will find a small overview of the most popular rooftop tents for the Hyundai Palisade.

You also have the option of buying a rooftop tent, which has an awning (annex). So you have a practical space that protects you from wind or rain.

Installing the rooftop tent on the roof of the Hyundai Palisade is very easy. You should only have a second person to help you lift the rooftop tent onto the vehicle roof. Or you install a lift in your garage that automatically lifts the rooftop tent onto the vehicle roof.

When buying a rooftop tent for the Hyundai Palisade, make sure that the rooftop tent is not wider than the vehicle when folded.

Although the registered permissible roof load of the Hyundai Palisade is relatively low, this only applies to the vehicle in motion. This is important if you are transporting a roof box or other loads on the vehicle roof, for example. As soon as the vehicle is stationary, however, the permissible roof load increases many times over and you can also mount a very large rooftop tent on the vehicle roof of the Hyundai Palisade.

The weight of the rooftop tent and the people staying in the roof tent is safely transferred to the vehicle body via the crossbars or the roof rails.

However, when installing a rooftop tent, you should always bear in mind that fuel consumption increases and the maximum range is reduced. Driving behavior can also be negatively influenced, as the vehicle’s center of gravity is shifted further upwards.

If it is possible, you should only install the rooftop tent if you really need the 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?

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.
