The Peugeot 3008 offers a lot of space inside to take your whole family with you on your next camping trip. You also have plenty of space inside the 3008 to take camping equipment with you.

The roof of the Peugeot 3008 also offers enough space to mount a large six-person rooftop tent. So your whole family can sleep safely on the roof of the Peugeot.

A rooftop tent offers the benefit of being able to sleep in an elevated position off the ground. So you are safe from small and large animals, from the cold of the ground, and also safe from mud and water.

All you need to mount a rooftop tent on the roof of the Peugeot 3008 are the matching roof crossbars. These crossbars are mounted on the Peugeot’s factory roof rails. The rooftop tent is then attached to four mounting spots on the crossbars. In this way, the rooftop tent is absolutely securely and stably connected to the vehicle.

It is possible to mount a very large rooftop tent on the Peugeot 3008. Up to six people can stay or sleep in the roof tent.

The additional weight of the roof tent and the people is optimally transferred to the entire vehicle body via the roof rails. So the roof of the Peugeot 3008 will not be damaged.

You can buy a hard-shell or soft-shell rooftop tent and mount it on the Peugeot 3008. When buying a roof tent, you should only make sure that the rooftop tent is not wider than the vehicle when folded.

If you are now wondering about the registered permissible roof load of the Peugeot 3008, I can tell you that the low permissible roof load only applies to the moving vehicle. As soon as the vehicle is stationary, the permissible roof load increases many times over.

But you should also note that the mounted rooftop tent increases fuel consumption and thus reduces the maximum range of the Peugeot 3008.

The driving characteristics of the Peugeot 3008 also deteriorate due to the rooftop tent installed on the vehicle roof. Due to the additional weight, the vehicle’s center of gravity shifts further upwards.

So you should always drive very carefully with a rooftop tent on the top of your vehicle.

In order to be able to mount a rooftop tent on the roof of the Peugeot 3008, you need these roof crossbars. The crossbars are connected to the factory roof rails.

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.
