Which Types of Roof Tents Will You Choose?

April 10, 2017



Roof tents are also called roof top tents or car top tents. They can be divided into three main groups:


Canvas tents that open in a clamshell-like manner. Well known brands are Dacmake.

Hard shell rooftop tents that also serve as the car’s roof, like Columbus and Maggiolina. It works on a system of internal gas rams and is therefore put up and taken down even faster.

A combi of the two: a canvas tent but one that is integrated in the roof of the car. It pops open on one side (generally the back), giving you a place to stand up straight in your Land Cruiser or similar-sized vehicle.

What these tents have in common:


The mattress, blankets and pillows can be stored inside the tent when folded up, which saves a lot of space in the vehicle.

Sleeping high off the ground in a tent with mosquito netting on all sides allows for maximum ventilation, creating maximum comfort in sultry regions – or at least less uncomfortable nights than when sleeping inside the car or in a tent on the ground.

Roof top tents can be a bit of a problem in the southern triangle of South America where there is often too much wind for a roof tent. It has led to many sleepless nights, and we often slept inside the Land Cruiser instead.
