The Infiniti QX50 is a great vehicle that offers plenty of interior space for the whole family. With the Infiniti QX50, you even have the option of setting off on a spontaneous camping trip without having to own a large camping trailer or RV. You can easily mount a rooftop tent on the vehicle roof and discover campgrounds off the beaten track.

With a rooftop tent on the Infiniti QX50, you have the opportunity to go on a camping trip without much effort. A rooftop tent has many advantages over a ground-based tent, a camping trailer, or even an RV. You only need to load the things you need for the camping trip into your trunk and you can set off spontaneously.

Due to the elevated position of the rooftop tent on the vehicle roof, you are safe from small and large animals, you are also safe from water or rain that collects on the ground. A modern rooftop tent is also very comfortable and offers many features. A rooftop tent can also be erected and dismantled very quickly. So you can change campgrounds more often without any problems.

All you need to mount a rooftop tent on the vehicle roof of the Infiniti QX50 are the matching roof crossbars. The roof crossbars mount to the QX50’s factory roof rails. The crossbars offer a safe and stable base for the rooftop tent. The rooftop tent is then connected to the crossbars at four mounting spots. In this way, the rooftop tent is securely and securely connected to the vehicle.

The weight of the rooftop tent and the people in the roof tent is transferred to the entire vehicle body via the roof rails of the Infiniti QX50. This means that neither the vehicle roof nor the body is damaged.

The registered permissible roof load of the Infiniti QX50 is relatively low, but this always refers to the vehicle in motion. This is important if, for example, you are transporting a roof box or similar loads on the vehicle roof. As soon as the vehicle is stationary, the permissible roof load increases many times over. It is therefore possible to mount a large six-person rooftop tent on the vehicle roof of the Infiniti QX50 without any problems.

Further down on this page, you will also find a short overview of the most popular rooftop tents for the Infiniti QX50.

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 and rain.

You can buy a hard-shell or soft-shell rooftop tent and mount it on the vehicle roof. A hard-shell rooftop tent is usually quicker to set up but has less interior space and features than a soft-shell rooftop tent.

When buying a rooftop tent, however, you should make sure that the roof tent is not wider than the vehicle.

You should also note that installing a rooftop tent on the vehicle roof increases fuel consumption and thus reduces the maximum range. The driving dynamics of the vehicle can also deteriorate as the vehicle’s center of gravity shifts further upwards. So you should always drive very carefully with a rooftop tent and think about the increased fuel consumption.

If you don’t need the rooftop tent, you should also dismantle it and store it safely in your garage.

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.

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.
