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 it’s 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 (Sparrow, Sandpiper, and Eagle), 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 8.5′ 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.

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
Superior Quality and Service
From the second, I started looking into the Roofnest Falcon to the time it arrived in my driveway, and in turn to the top of my vehicle, the Roofnest team has been there to help and at world-class speeds. I’m not exaggerating when I say its been service, unlike anything I’ve experienced in my life. Combine this with top quality parts and craftsmanship, easy installation, and fantastic design; there is nothing else that can compete. Look no further; you’ll not regret it!
Fastest set up on the go
The falcon clambshell design is the thinnest and sets up in less than a minute. Trick is to tug in sides as you close it. Great construction. Innovated design with side and bottom channels for accessories leaves many options for set ups.
Roofnest Falcon is a great choice
Just got my Roofnest Falcon. Some friends came over and helped me get it up on top of my 1996 Toyota Land Cruiser. In a short period time, I had the hardware in place and popped up the RTT. Excellent instructions and great quality made instillation easy. Service is great and delivery went well. Many great ideas went into this RTT. Materials look to be long lasting. Price was a selling point , too. I am not use to receiving anything without a problem or two to deal with. Amazingly, Roofnest has scored 100% customer satisfaction, in my experience. Looking forward to camping all over the Southwest USA.
I was in the market for a hardshell rooftop tent and I chose roofnest because of their amazing customer service. They were so helpful in answering all of my questions before I purchased. Responses were within minutes and I cannot thank them enough.
Falcons in the Wild
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?
