6 Roofnest Upgrades You’ll Want Now


From the Grand Canyon to Yosemite, and with countless nights in Roofnests, the Flock has put our tents to the test. They’ve also discovered some great Roofnest upgrades you’ll want to get right now. We list our favorite six below:


1) Lighting

Of course, we all love sleeping among the stars — that’s why we adventure right? Sometimes the stars just aren’t bright enough and you need a little help when it comes to light.   

It’s time to get some next-level lighting in your Roofnest. For less than $20 you can bring the stars with you. The USB-powered Sitelight minis are a perfect lighting solution. Mount them to the inner roof of your Roofnest, or string them through the mesh roof pocket for the perfect lighting.


2) Cooling

We have designed Roofnests to have as much ventilation as possible, with all of the models having two windows and two entry points so you can stay nice and cool throughout the night. But what about those hot summer nights where you just can’t escape the heat? After a few sweaty, sleepless nights, we’ve found the perfect solution to keep you cool all night long.

In addition to the large Roofnest windows, an overhead or window fan can make you much cooler resulting in comfortable sleeping on hot summer nights.  For less than $15 you can get a rechargeable, portable fan with a built-in lantern to hang in the interior of your Roofnest, bringing in that breeze you’ve been looking for.


3) Shower

Rooftop tents give you the freedom to pick up and go whenever you want. That being said, where do you shower when you decide to pick up and go on a month-long road trip? Sure, you can go to rest stops or buy a day pass at a local gym, but why do that when you can mount a shower on the side of your tent?

With the Roadshower you can enjoy the comfort of a warm, pressurized shower no matter where you are.



4) Bedding

Waking up in the morning and having to cram a sleeping bag in a sack that looks like it was made for something half the size is now a thing of the past. Enter the lightweight and compact down blanket that fits perfectly in your Roofnest — from Roofnest.

No need to pack it away when you get back on the road, just leave it in your Roofnest, close it up, and it will be ready to go when you get to your next spot! Packed with 600 grams of 750 fill down insulation and measuring at 84 inches by 72 inches, this is the perfect blanket for all your Roofnest needs.


5) Solar

We know that half the fun of being out on the road is disconnecting and enjoying your surroundings. However, sometimes you need to have a charged phone in case of emergencies. With the Biolite Solar Panel, you can make sure to stay charged no matter how off the grid you are. The integrated 2200 Onboard MaH battery lets you soak up the sun during the day and store energy for when you need it most. We love disconnecting, but make sure you always have the option to call for help if you need it!


6) Awning

Sometimes mother nature has her own plans for your trip. With the compact Little Wing Awning, you can make sure to stay covered from the elements, no matter what mother nature decides to throw your way.

With the integrated dome shape and compact size, this is the perfect awning for every type of car, large and small.


Camping doesn’t have to consist of sleepless nights on the ground, waking up covered in sweat. With these six Roofnest upgrades, you are sure to be the glamper you’ve always wanted to be.

Roofnest just got Fridges!!

Haha – that’s right, Roofnest is even cooler than it used to be.

We are stoked to announce our new 12v DC Fridge! Now you can take refrigerated (or even frozen) food and cold beverages with you on your next road trip without ever having to stop for ice! The Roofnest Fridge comes in Gray and (of course) Orange and will be a great addition to your car camping (or truck or van) setup!

Digitally set the temperature anywhere between -13° and +68° Fahrenheit to keep fresh food fresh, cold beer cold, or frozen food frozen. The Fridge can be plugged into your vehicle’s cigarette lighter and has a battery protection function that shuts the Fridge down when your starter (or backup) battery gets too low.

With a 40 liter volume there’s plenty of room for all your refrigerated food and beverages and the low power consumption of the Fridge’s efficient compressor will ensure the Fridge stays running day and night.

That orange is sweet right??

Right now and for a very limited time we are selling these babies for $495 – an incredible price for this sweet bit of kit!

Introducing our Ptarmigan Insulation system!

Always trying to innovate and improve our customers’ car camping experience, we have been working on an insulation package for our Basic and X model tents…. And it’s finally here!

Introducing the Ptarmigan Insulation system – the Ptarmigan Insulation system is a packable, easy-to-install, synthetic insulation system for both Roofnest Basic models (Eagle and Sparrow) as well as the Sparrow X.

The Ptarmigan Tent Insulation system has vertical zippers at each corner for installation around the gas struts and small metal hooks that easily attach its upper edge to the upper shell. There is a vertical zipper at each doorway for ease of entry and exit.

Once the insulation is zipped and hooked into place, the lower edge is tucked under the mattress to create an enclosed, cozy space.

The insulation can be installed or removed in ten minutes and can be left installed when travelling as long as you’re careful to tuck the insulation and tent material fully inside the tent when closing it.

The system is made from a synthetic polyester-based insulation with a polyester-based covering that is mildew and stain resistant. The insulation and cover are all through-stitched for durability and easy of use. Zippers are all metal and the bottom edge is finished with a durable nylon end piece for long-lasting wear.
