Can I take my family camping?
Yes for sure – the younger the better (if you are brave enough). The Felix is the ideal choice as it sleeps up to 4 people – this is perfect for 1-2 younger kids. This is Jess & Ben’s go to when escaping for the weekend with Tilly. The Landry is perfect for an adult and 1 child. Just be sensible around the ladder and supervise your little daredevils when they are making their way in.
Do I need specialised roof racks?
Not at all – just clip it to any roof rack or cage and you are good to go.
Are the tents warm?
All of our roof top tents are waterproof and windproof. You will also be in for a pleasant surprise at just how much warmer you are when you are up off the ground. Not only do you get a room with a beautiful view, but the elevation makes sure that under tent damp feeling is a thing of the past, giving you warmer mornings and a more inviting place to lay your head at night.
Is it hard to set up and pack down?
Not at all – much quicker than a normal tent set up. It usually takes around 10 -15 mins and, as with everything, the more you do it the quicker it gets. If you live locally we can fit it to your vehicle and give you a free demonstration. Or, if you are further afield, get in touch and we can send you a demonstration video.
Do I need to let the tent dry before I pack it down?
Yes, ideally, normal tent practices still apply and you run the risk of growing a little mould if you pack away when damp. We always recommend you dry it out before packing it away but, if you are short on time, pack it down and just remember to open it back out again at home to dry it out completely.
Will the Roof Top Tent fit on my car?
You don’t have to have a truck/SUV to enjoy a roof top tent. Check out the tents measurements to see if it will fit on top of your car – roof top tents are equally great on sedans and wagons. If you still aren’t sure and want to double check, touch base with us and we can go from there.
Does my car need to be a specific height?
Not at all! Our ladders are telescopic which means you can adjust them to the exact height you need.
Are the tents easy to fit on my vehicle?
Super easy – we are here to make life easier remember, not more difficult. Although, we would recommend grabbing a friend or family member to help you lift the tent on and off, as they are between 50-60kg in weight.
Does it come with a bed?
Yes it does come with a sponge mattress, however, you can also add an airbed or mattress topper if you would like some extra comfort. If you have a topper or something similar, you can pack down the tent and leave this in there so you are all ready for your next trip.
Can I leave my bedding in the tent?
Sure can – we are all about keeping things easy and streamline – so leave your bedding in there and pack down the tent as normal and you are ready to get back on the road as soon as possible.
Do I need the annex?
The annex is a handy extension, but it isn’t needed. Think of it like an awning to a caravan, perfect for overflow gear, getting changed in etc. If you are unsure, you can always try just the tent first and purchase the annex at a later date.
What would your side awning be good for?
The kiwi sun rays are pretty tough – this is perfect for quickly setting up alongside your roof top tent and adding a little extra protection. But, you don’t need a tent to enjoy the side awning. As it only takes about 1 minute t set up, it is perfect for weekend picnics, worksite shelter, fishing trip shelter etc.
What is covered in my warranty?
Standard manufactures warranty applies to all purchases. If you are crazy silly and break the product – sorry you aren’t covered. But if anything malfunctions or breaks that isn’t due to human error, then we will replace the part of the tent for you and get you back on the road as soon as possible. We are pretty good sorts, just give us a call and let’s get it sorted.
Will the tent cause drag when driving?
Minimal – you won’t notice a huge difference. Plus, our tents are super compact and streamline so are definitely your lightest option, we can’t find a more compact model on the market anyway.
