Sparrow XL

At the height of the Covid pandemic our Sparrow allowed us to cross the country safely. From New Jersey to Colorado. We crossed in comfort and with the ability to stop any time anywhere. Easy set up and take down. Thank you Roofnest for making this possible. Now we look forward to great happy holidays away exploring….

Challenging install but enjoying the tent

RoofNest needs to hire women!! Are there any? Every single person I talked with throughout my buying process was a man. Also, I am 5’4″ and I will need to use a stool to open and close my tent.. something that was not stated in any materials that I read. Not a deal breaker, but it would have been nice for someone to address height issues. Furthermore, taking down the tent is slower as a solo camper than it is when you have a second person to help tuck the fabric along the edges. I timed myself at about 16 minutes with the awning poles, rain fly, etc. Because of the factory roof rack on my 2006 Hyundai Tucson, it took 3 hours to secure the hardware to the rack. This was due to the tight distance between the roof of the car and the mounting brackets. We used duct tape and a stick to keep the bracket up against the Condor’s mounting plate and used the supplied ratchet. Very awkward. I wish that I had been warned about this before my tent arrived and I even sent photos to customer service and they didn’t say anything either. Another immediate challenge was the telescoping ladder. It is finicky and you have to get used to it! Make sure and extend it ALL the way before adjusting the top rungs. Customer service responded quickly and I figured it out after our call. Once I got everything secured, I went for an overnight and it was absolutely lovely! It’s like a mobile tree house, floating in the clouds. I am in my early 50’s and appreciated the firm mattress. Also, the air flow, multiple windows and skylight are a delight. I haven’t tried the LED twinkle lights yet but I’m sure they will be a nice touch.

Love the tent, it did have a defect, overall fantastic

I used this tent across 169 miles on the Mojave road and throughout Death Valley and it has been great. The mattress in my opinion is just right, I have exped megamats and do not have to use it with the mattress. It is just thick enough although Im sure there will be people who would wish for more cushion. Ive used it in snow, and when all the windows are closed due to cold weather it does tend to build up moisture inside from exhaling. Keeping some windows open for ventilation helps with this and opening up all the windows for a few minutes dries everything fairly quick at least in dry weather. Ive used it in rain as well and seems very waterproof. DEFECT, the tent had a defect from the manufacturer, in my opinion its not that big of a deal. The light cables for the inside and outside of the tent need to be on same side of the tent to plug into the provided controller. Mine are on opposite ends of the tent, one for outside on left side of the tent on one for the inside on the right. This makes it impossible to use with one battery pack and one controller. Roofnest did provide me with a second controller and some other goodies that made me happy for this minor nuisance which does not effect the overall use of the tent in my opinion. I have been ground tenting for a very long time and bring along two kids 8 and 6 and my wife and we all fit inside fine. We have plenty of room if my wife 5ft, 8 and kids all sleep vertically and I lay horizontally near the entrance. We usually just sleep all vertically and just alternate one kid and one adult heads pointed towards hard side of tent and the other two heads towards entrance and have just enough room. I did have to grind down the heads of the mounting bolts to get them to fit the channel on the bottom of the tent to make them fit properly but also not that big of a deal with my Dremel tool. Best nite sleep I’ve ever had outside. Can’t wait for my next trip with it.

Best in the business

I have many friends with rooftop tents I shopped long and hard for mine,, many reviews and lots of homework, I finally pulled the trigger on my roof nest condor XL, which has been ideal for my little family and dogs. My tent arrived ahead of schedule which was great, but I had damage from shipping in the corner of the tent, a couple of rivets and some broken aluminum corner pieces. I contacted roof Nest via email they responded quickly and had me taken care of well beyond my expectations, within a matter of days. my tent now is 100% and I’m Beyond satisfied, this company has the best customer service I have ever dealt with. The tent,,,, I can’t say enough about this tent, we camped in 35° temperatures, high in the mountains we had little condensation. the set up is such a breeze it looks great on my truck and the mattress Is phenomenally comfortable. The lighting is awesome. If your on the fence,,, This is the company to choose, i mean come on,, Free Shipping?? Its a no brainer.

The unboxing and installation

I picked up my new roofnest sparrow yesterday afternoon at the loading dock and unboxed it right there and installed it on the roof of my Subaru Legacy Outback. The shipping container arrived without any damage at all. I was slightly shocked. Upon uncrating the sparrow I was very impressed with the quality if finished on the tent. All parts and accessories were accounted for. My niece and I installed it on my car and were on the road in under an hour start to finish. After getting back home I set up the tent and omg so simple and fast 😍 The mattress is very comfortable. I left it set up overnight to help air it out and get rid of the new tent smell. The team at roofnest were extremely helpful and knowledgeable in answering all my questions prior to the purchase. I will be posting a new review after I use it this weekend. All in all I am 100% satisfied with my purchase and stoked to get out in the backcountry and start using it 😍

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.
