The Toyota Corolla is a great vehicle for the city. The Toyota Corolla is also ideal for a camping trip with a rooftop tent. The Toyota Corolla is a very solid vehicle and offers many options for mounting a rooftop tent.

All you need to mount a rooftop tent on a Toyota Corolla are roof rails and roof crossbars. The actual rooftop tent is then firmly connected to the crossbars at four points.

Through this connection, the rooftop tent is firmly connected to the vehicle.

My recommendation is a four-person rooftop tent. Of course, it is also possible to set up a smaller rooftop tent. It is important that the rooftop tent is not wider than the vehicle when folded.

You can set up a hard-shell or soft-shell rooftop tent. The attachment to the vehicle or to the crossbars is the same for all rooftop tents.

The Toyota Corolla’s permissible roof load is stated somewhat lower in the vehicle registration document, but this refers to the vehicle when it is in motion. When the vehicle is stationary, however, the roof load is much higher.

If you don’t exceed the rooftop tent’s load limit, nothing can happen. Your vehicle will not be damaged either, as the weight can be distributed evenly over the entire vehicle body.

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.

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.
