Home Away From Home

I bought my Condor in the late summer so i could hit the road by late Aug for a month of roadtripping. Was so comfy and safe feeling to live in full time on the road that i ended up traveling the country for 2 extra months living in it a total of 3 months. Made the road trip setup and take down so easy and fast even pulling into spots late and in the dark! It was a solo trip but there was PLENTY of space for company to join in the tent if needed/wanted. Def recommended it multiple times on the road when people inquired about it and am excited for all the camping i plan to do in it come next year ❤️

Life changing tent.

In Spring of 2021 I began planning a six week road trip, determined to make use of pandemic space in our lives. My hubby was less than willing to be camping for that length of time and was objecting vehemently to the project. I hadn’t intended to purchase a roof tent although I was aware they existed but I was browsing free-camping site and saw photos of rooftops and had to investigate because it occurred to me that hubby might be more invested in my adventure if he had a new toy. I slyly bought the Sparrow after doing some research for what should best fit us. As predicted, he couldn’t wait to get, unpack and investigate it. We hoisted it stop our “ole girl” – (17 y/o Toyota Sienna XL) and in May 2021 set off for our first extended, self-sustaining 6000 miles road trip around the west. What a blast. That was a year ago and I have a bonafide road tripper on my hands. The Sparrow has made all the difference in how we camp now. Here’s how: 1. We sleep so well. The foam mattress is thick and comfortable and gives an unbelievable-until-you-try -it good nights rest. 2. Sleeping with fresh air and views. The “doors” and “windows can all be sealed (but not advisable since the seal is tight) from rain but the experience of sleeping with wild air coming in is matchless. All the openings have zippered screens as well as a heavy duty zippered flap which turn into awnings with provided poles or can be rolled up. Bring your own views. 3. You can leave your sleeping equipment stowed in the Sparrow while traveling. The hard shell provided enough depth for us to leave 2 full sized sleeping bags, an extra blanket and 2 pillows plus PJs which made a simple set -up ultra simple. 4. Easy to set-up, unlatch and push up. Leave the rest to the hydraulic arms. 5. Takedown is simple too and takes a few more steps but after doing for 3 times it took less than 10 mins (1person) to attain full locked status. Also if you’re vertically challenged as we are, bring a sturdy fold-up stool to help you get the locks done. Especially if tent is on higher vehicle. 5. Ready. Set. Pick up and go. We leave our Sparrow, now well stickered, on the ole girl and are ready to go at a moments notice. Since getting the Nest and doing that epic trip, we’ve been on many shorter trips. A lot of our free time is spent planning for the next road trip. We are 100% HOOKED. I seriously believe if we hadn’t had such a wonderful experience with the Sparrow, we wouldn’t be here. LOVE MY ROOFNEST.

Super convenient, super comfortable

We’ve had our Sparrow Eye for a couple of years and slept in it a couple of hundred nights. It’s built well – we’ve had no problems. And I sleep better in the Roofnest than I do at home. When I was deciding on which model to get, I got in touch with the Roofnest crew (who are incredibly responsive!) and told them I was looking for convenience. (Let’s face it folks, that’s one of the big selling points for a RTT.) They directed to toward the Sparrow Eye, and I’m glad they did. There’s room to leave all bedding (double sleeping bag, pillows, orange down blanket from Roofnest, etc.) inside when it’s closed, which makes set up/close down so easy and quick. I’m sure all the Roofnest models and well built and comfortable. But for max convenience, the Sparrow Eye is the way to go. I can’t wait to get back out in the woods!

Go big or fo home

I bought it for three people. Fits us nicely. I’ve used it twice so far. Both times, it has weathered through chilly nights to warm days along with heavy rain days and nights. On cooler nights, with us inside breathing and our body heat, the inside condensated some. Not dripping wet but definitely visible moisture droplets on the walls. Everything else about is nice. One of my window awning pole broke unexpectedly. Not sure why. During the second camping trip, I heard a load snap and looked around and found the window dangling with the pole. But, I couldn’t have chosen a better tent though. I did however think there could be some improvements. Should have a thicker matress option for those that need more cushion (me). Should have some kind safety bar at the egress door that can be folded away when folding up the tent. There’s nothing to grab when trying to get out of the tent. Maybe a taller cover so extra blankets amd pillows can be stored away when folded down. A window on the top cover would be nice.

Awesome Customer Service

I highly recommend Roofnest… My Falcon 2 XL was damaged when it originally arrived. This occurred during the shipping process and was no fault of Roofnests. While I was incredibly disappointed, I have to admit, I ended up having one of the best customer service experiences of my life. They were responsive, quick to ship out a replacement tent, shipped me straps to assist with sending the damaged tent back, and were friendly as could be. I’m from the south and that goes a long way with me. They also made things right with me in regards to the delay and my own time spent dealing with it. The tent itself is great! Lots of room, easy to install, quality materials, and literally sets up in 30 seconds. I did a lot of research before making my decision. I’d happily make the same decision again. Go with Roofnest, in the end you won’t be disappointed.

A lot of compliments!

Received our Condor XL and could not be happier. Fast shipment, great customer service, and friendly helpful delivery workers. Opened it up at our apartment to check the inside and got so much compliments from our neighbors! Took it up Yosemite National and boy, people were turning necks! Strangers coming up to us asking where we bought it and specs. Using it first time this weekend at camp! So exciting!

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.
