From installation to roof racks, tips on condensation and more, our guides cover all things Roofnest.

How to Install Your Roofnest

From what to do when your hard shell roof top tent first arrives at your home to safely and securely installing your RTT on your vehicle, read our installation guide before attempting to install your Roofnest.

How to Choose Crossbars

The stock crossbars that come with your vehicle aren’t always ideal for a Roofnest hard shell roof top tent. You need to make sure you’ve got the right crossbars to bear the weight of your RTT — both with campers inside (static load) and when closed and speeding down the highway (dynamic load). Find your vehicle roof type and what kind of crossbars and towers you’ll need to mount your Roofnest.

Roof Rack Guide

All your Roofnest requires to mount safely to your vehicle is the right pair of crossbars. But if you want to mount your RTT and a handful of extra gear to your roof, a platform rack may be a good option for you. Read our guide to figure out the best roof rack option for your rig.

Condensation Guide

Condensation can collect on the walls of your RTT for a few reasons: your breath while you sleep, wet gear or other clothes inside your tent, or natural humidity in the air. Read our guide for minimizing condensation inside your Roofnest.

Shipping Guide

Learn how LTL freight shipping works, how to schedule and receive your Roofnest delivery, and important steps to follow before you sign for your Roofnest.

How to Store Your Roofnest

We always recommend that you store your Roofnest at least 2” off the ground to prevent moisture from getting into your tent and causing rot or other potential damage. It’s important to find a safe and convenient place to store your roof top tent during the off-season so you can keep enjoying your tent for many years to come — without it taking over your whole garage.
