Introducing the Eye – The Roofnest with a View

in News & Press / by Tim Nickles

Roofnest has introduced our latest model in two sizes – the Eagle Eye and the Sparrow Eye. With roughly the same size as our Basic models, the Eye features simpler operation and a better view of the sky. The Eye resembles the old Westfalia vans by opening on one side only (the back) to create a triangular-shaped tent (resembling an “eye” in cross-section).

By opening at just the back, the Eye allows access from the rear of your vehicle and also provides a bigger view of the sky because the doorway is oriented slightly upwards.

The Eye comes in both large (Eagle Eye) and small (Sparrow Eye) sizes and, just like our basic model, can accommodate two adults plus a child or two adults, respectively.

Opening on one side only makes put up and take down even easier – setting the Eye up takes literally 20 seconds, just undue the straps on one end and the tent pops up.

The Eye still has all the features of our other models, such as the waterproof canvas tent material for walls, mesh and canvas at each window and door, and even a large awning over the single doorway.

Check out our Store for more information and photos of the Eagle Eye or Sparrow Eye!
