Roofnest Condor

The Condor is our smallest hard shell fold-out style roof top tent. It’s 48″ wide by 60″ long closed and 60″ x 83″ open and can sleep 2 adults and one child. The beauty of the Condor is that you can have it all – a large, comfy sleeping space as well as the easy setup and aerodynamic shape of a hard shell tent.



Finance with Bread

Both Condor sizes feature a thick (6 cm) mattress, a clear skylight for viewing the stars, built-in telescoping ladder (8.5 ft), LED lighting on the interior and exterior, two multipurpose pockets for shoes and other items, and three awnings over the door and windows.

The Condor’s shell is made from ruggedized ASA and ABS plastics to create a shell that is impervious to the elements and aerodynamically shaped to save on gas. The framework and floors are made from extruded aluminum edges with honeycomb aluminum sheets that are extremely strong and lightweight.

Materials and Construction

ABS plastic Shell

The Condor’s shell is made from ABS plastic.

Wall Material

The wall material is a polyurethane-coated polyester and cotton blend with a waterproof rating of 3000mm (for comparison a typical waterproof rating on a backpacking tent is 1000mm). The fabric is much thicker and tougher than a typical backpacking tent – more like a heavy-duty wall tent. The material provides additional warmth and is quieter during a wind storm due to it’s weight.

Doors and Windows

The Condor has two windows with an awning and both canvas and mesh zip closures. The Condor has a main door with canvas cover and full-zip mesh window. There is also a sky light with both mesh and canvas full zip openings and a clear plastic viewing window built into the tent cover.


All Roofnests are shipped with a sturdy and lightweight 8.5′ telescoping ladder for access. The ladder is collapsible and is permanently attached to the fold-out base.

Built-in Mattress

Every Condor comes with a built-in, custom-shaped 6 cm foam mattress with a waterproof cover. What a dream to sleep on! This is not your typical camping mattress, it feels like a real bed. If you’ve had difficulty sleeping while camping those problems are going to be a distant memory after a few nights in a Roofnest.


The Condor ships with:
– 8.5′ telescoping aluminum ladder
– 6 cm foam mattress and waterproof cover
– 2 multi-function pockets with waterproof covers
– LED lighting system (just add USB battery)
– all mounting hardware


The Roofnest Limited Warranty

When you buy a Roofnest roof top tent we want you to have an excellent experience purchasing, installing, and using your roof top tent. We provide a two year warranty to the original purchaser against manufacturer defects covering workmanship, parts, and materials which fail under normal use.

During this initial period Roofnest will correct the issue through repair or replacement at no cost. After the first year, we will repair and/or replace parts, materials, etc on a case-by-case basis for failures due to normal use. Roofnest does not cover problems due to user error, neglect, or acts of God. We will, however, work with you to get replacement parts and help with repair wherever possible.

If you ever encounter an issue with your Roofnest after the warranty period is over you can count on excellent customer support. We can get spare parts (struts, awning poles, zippers, etc), help suggest fixes, and generally work with you to keep your Roofnest in top shape for years to come!

INSTALLS EASILY ON ALL CARS, TRUCKS, AND SUVS  Our universal mounting system allows your Roofnest to be mounted quickly to any set of crossbars, similar to a bike rack or storage box.
