Roof Rack Tents

Here you will find your roof rack tent for your car, truck or SUV. We give recommendations for specific car models and also roof rack tents for universal installation. Most of the roof rack tents that we list and recommend here can also be installed universally on different cars.

Rooftop tents are becoming increasingly popular, even with seasoned campers, and it’s easy to see why. Instead of having to carefully unplug and assemble your tent and sleeping system upon arrival at the campsite, the roof tents are unfolded from the top of your vehicle and fitted with comfortable mattresses for a good night’s sleep. The designs of the individual roof tents range from inexpensive softshells to premium hardshell and overlanding models. However, all roof tents keep you off the ground, are relatively easy to set up and stow away, have robust construction methods and free up valuable storage space in the vehicle. You can find more background information in our comparison table for roof tents and in the purchase recommendations. Once purchased, roof tents can be used for a very long time. We give you lots of useful tips on our website that will extend the life of a roof tent and increase the fun with your new tent.
