The Hyundai Venue is a great all-rounder that offers you a lot of space inside for your whole family and also gives you the opportunity to explore campgrounds off the beaten track. When you’re traveling with the Hyundai Venue, you don’t need a large camping trailer or even an expensive RV. With the Hyundai Venue and a rooftop tent, you are always very mobile and can also go on spontaneous camping trips.

A rooftop tent also has other advantages over a ground tent or camping trailer. Due to the elevated position on the Hyundai Venue’s vehicle roof, you are safe from both small and large animals. You are also safe from water or rain that collects on the ground. You are also safe from the night cold that comes out of the ground and could penetrate the ground tent.

A modern rooftop tent is also equipped with many features and comfort. A rooftop tent offers a lot of space and can be set up and taken down very quickly. So you can often change campgrounds without much effort.

Regardless of whether you want to buy a hard-shell or soft-shell, the Hyundai Venue offers enough space for a large six-person rooftop tent on the vehicle roof.

A hard-shell rooftop tent is usually easier and quicker to set up, even by a single person. But a soft-shell rooftop tent usually offers more space inside and more features.

So you can spend a great camping trip with your whole family or many friends. Of course, you can also buy a smaller rooftop tent and install it on the roof of the Hyundai Venue, that’s entirely up to you.

All you need to mount a rooftop tent on the roof of the Hyundai Venue are the appropriate roof rails (many Hyundai Venue years and models already have factory roof rails, so of course you don’t have to buy them again) and roof crossbars. The roof crossbars serve as a basis for assembling the rooftop tent. The rooftop tent is then screwed to four mounting spots on the crossbars and is thus securely and stably connected to the vehicle.

(Actually, all rooftop tents are universal. Most rooftop tents are screwed to the crossbars at four mounting spots on the underside of the roof tent. However, some rooftop tents have the option of direct attachment to the roof rails, then you need the crossbars obviously not.)

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

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

All tents have a telescopic ladder with which you can get in and out of the roof tent safely and without any problems. There are also rooftop tents that have a practical awning (annex). This awning offers you a practical extra space that protects you from wind or rain, for example. So you can get straight into the awning in the morning without first leaving the protection of the tent.

The registered permitted roof load of the Hyundai Venue is relatively low, but this always refers to the vehicle in motion. This is important, for example, when transporting a roof box or other loads on the vehicle roof.

As soon as the vehicle is stationary, however, the permissible roof load increases many times over and you can stay or sleep on the vehicle roof with up to six people in the rooftop tent without any problems.

However, you must note that the rooftop tent on the vehicle roof increases fuel consumption and reduces the maximum range. The driving behavior can also deteriorate due to the rooftop tent, as the vehicle’s center of gravity shifts further upwards. So you should always drive very carefully during a camping trip with the rooftop tent and think about the increased fuel consumption. Therefore, you should always dismantle 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?

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.
