THE NEW GEN 3-R ROOFTOP TENT HAS ADDITIONAL FEATURES
Updated look which increases the rigidity of the rooftop tent
Heater vent as a standard feature
Solar panel input as a standard feature
This upgrade now boasts a weight decrease to 76kgs
*Note: The Backrest and Drop-down Table are additional accessories to be purchased separately*
LOAD RATING FOR CARGO RAILS:
The load rating for the cargo rails on the rooftop tent roof is 50kg. It is important to note that where the load is located on the roof, will determine how easy or difficult it is to open the tent.
It is always suggested to shift heavier loads towards the front of the tent, and much lighter loads, like a solar panel, to the rear.
Side rain cover now comes as a standard feature
Spec-built telescopic ladder with rungs that are broad and angled making it far more comfortable to climb into the tent barefoot

3D breathable mesh to further assist with condensation
The rooftop tent is made from a lightweight aluminium construction

Our upgraded pop up Rooftop Tent features a new design language, a heater port, built in solar panel input and more! Roof Top Tents are the perfect camping solution for those who want to enjoy nature without having to worry about bugs, rain or other weather conditions. They can be set up quickly and they provide shelter from all types of weather.
POP UP ROOFTOP TENTS
When rooftop tents first hit the market they were revolutionary, mostly because your tent and mattress (the two things that take up the most packing space) were now conveniently stored on your car roof. Of course, there are many more benefits to owning a rooftop tent, but likewise, there are plenty of cons, too.
Fortunately, most of these drawbacks are associated with soft-shell rooftop tents, as well as heavy canvas units that are difficult to flip open. For these reasons, our Expedition Tent has always followed a hard-shell design. The benefits of our rooftop tent include…
A gas-strut assisted design that takes seconds to open and close
A three-point entry / exit layout so you don’t have to plan your campsite around your tent
A more aerodynamic shape
You can close the tent with your bedding inside, and lastly…
Our Expedition Tent has always followed a hard-shell design.
What’s more, hard-shell tents typically last longer than their soft-shell equivalents, they’re also easier to clean, and far more resilient to rain, snow and windy weather conditions.
But most of all, from an overland-travel perspective (where you’re moving from one camp to the next), you just can’t beat the convenience of a popup roof top tent; which is why our ever popular Expedition Tent is now in its 3rd Generation design.
Over the years, we’ve been adding continuous improvements to our Expedition Tent, opting for a wider, more spacious layout, as well as a streamlined design that’s both aesthetically pleasing, and far more aerodynamic.
THREE CRITICAL FEATURES FOR A HARDTOP TENT
But even more so, three critical features have always been important to us while developing our hard-shell roof top tent:
1) COMFORT AND CONVENIENCE
Buying a rooftop tent is no different to buying a household bed, where comfort is critical; which is why we’ve specced our Expedition Camping Tent with a generous 75 mm high-density foam mattress. We’ve also included a reading light, USB charging ports (for your mobile phone), a 12V power socket, and a series of storage pockets where you can keep your keys, books and even your shoes.
Thanks to the Expedition Tent’s robust aluminium housing, you have the option of fitting our Alu-Cab load bars. This means you can still pack large bulky items on top of your tent. Whether it be a solar panel, camping table, kayak, mountain bike, or our very own Roof Rack Tray, the Gen 3-R Rooftop Tent doesn’t prevent you from packing gear on your roof like other rooftop tents do.
Recognising that our tents are used by extreme adventure travellers across the globe, we wanted to build a tent that offered the best possible insulation against blazing African heat, as well as sub-zero temperatures found in Europe and North America. That said, the Gen 3-R roof structure and base are generously insulated with a closed-cell foam lining that offers excellent comfort and insulation all year round. We’ve also included an awning cover over the tent’s rear door, which helps to keep rain, snow and frost off the rear opening.
