Overlanding Elevated.

Not all roof top tents are created equal. Stay heads above the rest in a Roofnest.

What Makes Hard Shell Roof Top Tents Ideal for Overlanders?

Hard shell roof top tents are built for the overland lifestyle. The durable, low-profile, and aerodynamic build make them a sleek and easy-to-maintain addition to any rig.

A Roofnest hard shell roof top tent is more rugged than a soft shell, and a hell of a lot easier to clean after a weekend in the rough. Plus, its weatherproof design guarantees you a solid night of sleep in heavy rains, high winds, and whatever else Mother Nature throws at you.

Having a mobile base-camp means you’re not tied down to a specific campsite any longer than you want to be. That means more freedom and flexibility to live life on four wheels.

Did we mention setup and takedown take less than a minute? With a Roofnest, you’ll just park, pop it up, and you’re ready to go.
