Aluminum Honeycomb Shell
The Falcon is made from aluminum honeycomb sheets (bottom sheet is reinforced with aluminum crossbars) and aluminum channels on all four sides. The accessory channels allow easy mounting of a variety of accessories. Each Roofnest is rated to support up to 650 lbs!
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 its weight.
Doors and Windows
All Roofnests have two mesh windows at the front and back with both canvas and mesh zip closures. On our rectangular tents, there is a doorway with a mesh screen and zip closure on either side. The Sparrow EYE and Falcon have 3 doors. The canvas doorway(s) can be turned into a small shade awning with the included poles. All tents can be fully unzipped at each opening to allow entry from any side.
All Roofnests are shipped with a sturdy and lightweight 7.5′ telescoping ladder for access. The ladder is collapsable and can be attached to the edge of the Roofnest for additional safety if desired.
Every Roofnest comes with a built-in, custom-shaped 7 cm foam mattress. 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.

We drove from Las Vegas to Iowa and had a blast. We took the non-traditional route and visited all the national parks possible. Little wind noise on the highway on a Jeep JKU and it was a very comfortable at night. Recommended this to everyone who asked what was on my car lol
Awesome product, company and customer service.
I didn’t want to send a review until I tested the tent a lot. The tent is amazing. High quality and very comfortable. I’m
6’2” and have plenty of space to move around, change etc. It does get a little tight with foot room. My 5 star review is not only for the product but for the outstanding customer service. These guys care about their customers. Answer any and all questions with fast response and have gone above and beyond to make sure I was taken care of. I’m a roofnest fan for life!! 2020 Jeep Rubicon Unlimited. Fits great on top of the Pioneer Platform from Rhino Rack.
Love the sleek design
i fell in love with how low profile it was. Thats exactly what i want in a roof top tent
I purchased the Falcon XL to fit on our Ford Transit van (medium roof). We have tested it out all summer on some fun road trips. The fit is perfect and the hard shell is awesome! Initially, we had some trouble closing the tent and I had to stand on top of the tent in order to close the clamps on the side. This caused a little bit of a concern for me as this may result in additional wear and tear (when I do this, I hear some slight stress noises in the hard shell). Also, the compact design makes it a little difficult to get all of the tent inside the rubber seal. These issues were a little more challenging due to the height of our van. However, I built a deck off the back of the van which allows easier access to the tent during set up and take down which improved the process dramatically. We have three boys that sleep up in the tent, while my wife, daughter, and I sleep in the van. The tent is a space saver and an awesome addition to our adventure van. While, I think the tent could use some modifications, overall it is a solid 4 1/2 stars!
2,500 miles and Roofnest flawless!
I’m 2500 miles onto a potential 10,000 trip the roofnest has been flawless…
Even the aerodynamics have been excellent ….my 30 miles to the gallon car is still getting 30 miles to the gallon with the roofnest on top…. even in extreme downpours I have had no issues with water ……wether standing or on the road. I am in fact writing this post from within the roof nest I am camped south of Minneapolis Minnesota at a state park tomorrow I Journey towards South Dakota
The focus of the Falcon design is rugged durability and a sleek, aerodynamic design (hence the name). If you plan on off-roading through the deserts of Moab or blazing over bumpy mountain trails here in Colorado, you can rest assured this roof top tent can handle the ride.
Or if you’re more of a laid-back, tie-up-a-hammock-and-crack-open-a-cold-one kinda camper, the Falcon’s ready-to-tumble design means you can rely on it for endless weekend getaways.
The Falcon and Falcon XL keep the same low profile when closed, making them a great choice for efficient gas performance. Every penny you save on fuel is another you can spend on beers for the campsite, right?
