best out there

I’ve had and seen other brand tents out there and not very many can come close to compare. Beside being a little spent I easily spent this amount on crappy tents and Replacemt parts for other tents I’ve had. Bar none ease of use set up and design awesome.

Good Awning, Decent Quality, Fast Delivery

I purchased the Little Wing to go in the back of my third gen Tacoma with a 6.2 ft long bed. This was one of the only awnings on the market that would fit a 6 ft bed. PRO: -Easy to open -Seems supported ok without poles -Lights built in CONS: -Cheap outside cover and zipper. We will see if the zipper doesn’t break. Would have expected a waterproof cover with a bigger YKK zipper for the price. (Overall built well, not sure why they skimped on this part) -Lights are more for ambiance than actually using for light

Adventuring is awesome with the Sparrow

I have had my sparrow for almost a year now and honestly couldn’t be happier. It is perfect size for my 70 pound dog and me! I’ve camped locally countless times and also took it on a two week road trip from the Midwest to the West coast. It is so convenient for road trips, I just pack up all my bedding and clothes in the tent! I love it.

I like it but it’s not perfect

I have the sparrow xl. It is very comfortable to sleep in and was surprisingly warm. The materials is made out of smell of chemical. I left it completely open for a few days to offgas but it still smells a little funky. It was also slightly heavier than expected it is difficult to get on and off your car without 4 people. They should sell some sort of storage solutions also. Finally. It’s difficult to close. Almost impossible with only one person and challenging with two. I love it when I am sleeping inside. It just needs minor changes. Any suggestions to how to close it more efficiently would be appreciated

Not all tents are created equal!

I did extensive research before purchasing this brand. There are many tents out there and all claim the same. I started looking at the materials used, and it was very clear there was no comparison. This tent is what I call a tank, something that can last a long time and do it’s job when it’s time to protect you from the elements. The mattress is made out of real memory foam, which are not created equal as well, you can tell by waking up fresh, or back pain. Feel free to ruin your future trips by buying aftermarkets, the inevitable future embarrassment is and will be all yours, when you wake up next to your girl, in your own personal kiddie pool..

You belong outside.

It’s our vision to bring the camaraderie, wonder, and adventure of the great outdoors closer to every customer.

That’s why we make outdoor camping accessible, comfortable, and convenient for campers of every experience level with our durable and easy-to-use hard shell roof top tents.

Meet the Founder

Tim Nickles, the Founder of Roofnest, is a 25-year Boulder resident who was practically raised outdoors. He spent his childhood traversing the Alaskan wilderness with hiking boots on his feet and camping gear on his back, strapping on his first pair of skis when he was barely 3 years old.

From a young age, Tim understood how being immersed in nature can shape who we are, and inspire who we want to be.

As he grew older and began to explore further — spending winters skiing in Chamonix, France, and summers mountain biking in Boulder — Tim came to appreciate how his camping gear was the key to accessing the outdoor lifestyle he’d been raised to love. Thus began his lifelong pursuit of modifying, designing, and creating outdoor camping gear that made packing up and sleeping under the stars easier and more comfortable than ever.

Using his first rooftop tent was a turning point for Tim. As an avid outdoor adventurer, a rooftop tent provided a night’s sleep as comfortable as his own bedroom — only to open his window and be greeted by fresh mountain air and awe-inspiring alpine peaks. All this, without ever having to compete for a campsite, find a flat surface, or pitch a single pole.

From that moment, Tim knew rooftop tents would be a lifelong obsession. And in his typical spirit of improvement, he was quick to invest his time and expertise into designing a superior hardshell rooftop tent.

This is where Roofnest was born: from the love of leaving daily life behind and spending more hours discovering the breathtaking adventures and unforgettable memories that nature has to offer.
