I guess it technically “works”

Rated 1 out of 5
April 26, 2021

This product is really nice. I can’t argue with the product quality. I’m pretty upset with the misrepresentation that these will “fit any car”. That’s untrue. I have a 2010 Honda CRV and when installed safely on top of my car, I’m unable to get my hatch open. I contacted the company and they said this is actually a really common problem for smaller suvs – something they don’t mention anywhere on their website. Their support team provided me with what they feel is an adequate solution; a link for an additional product, a set of suction cup crossbars that are not even adjustable, and cost an additional 500$, and no guarantees that they actually work with the spacing of your roof and existing roof rack system.
For the money, I feel that consumers deserve more transparency. Sure this amazing product “fits my car”, but can I safely drive? Can I use all of my cars stock features- such as opening my trunk without having the roofnest hang over my windshield 28 inches.
Very disappointed. I cannot use it unless I sacrifice the use of my hatch, and I can’t even return it, because of the company’s return policy. Had their websites sizing and fit my vehicle feature showed anything relating to how this would actually function on my car, I could have saved time and money.
Ultimately, for me, it feels like fraud to advertise that it will fit anything without certainty that it will indeed fit and function on anything.

I’m a year into the ownership of the sparrow. I took a three week tour of national parks this past summer and it preformed great. I put it on a Subaru Outback. I also use it on my f150 as a base camp when I fly fish. It’s very comfortable and quick to open or close. Made camping so much easier.

First trip with the Roofnest Sparrow XL

Rated 5 out of 5
September 25, 2020

My wife and I, both 71 years old, just completed our first trip with our new Sparrow XL mounted atop our Toyota RAV4 Hybrid. We love the tent!
The Sparrow XL is well-constructed, easy to set up and take down, very comfortable for sleeping in temperatures from 30 to 50 degrees at night, and very quiet on the road even at freeway speeds. (BTW: The Roofnest down quilt is terrific in cooler temperatures — b it is both light weight and toasty.
We traveled almost 4000 miles through Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, and Montana, staying in state parks. We experienced no problems of any kind with our Roofnest. We even took it through carwashes to get the bugs off. No sweat!
We slept in 40-45 mph wind gusts in Wyoming and the Sparrow was as solid as a rock. Our only addition was a set of cable-reinforced, locking security straps to provide extra piece of mind as we drove down the road — as well as to deter possible theft. This slowed down the setup and take-down process by several minutes, but it was worthwhile to us.
Everywhere we went, the Roofnest attracted a lot of attention and interest. Several well-experienced campers said wit was the coolest thing they had ever seen. And we think everyone was amazed to see two old geezers climbing in and out of the Roofnest.
We are very happy with the Sparrow XL and are already planning our next trip.
Thanks for everything!

Our Sparrow XL just arrived!

Our Sparrow XL just arrived on schedule in in excellent shape. It is now mounted securely on our 2020 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid — it looks great and rides perfectly.
My wife and I (both in our 70’s) are planning our “shakedown camp out” and we are eager to use our new Roofnest.
P.S. The neighbor kids are just as excited as we are.

Our new Sparrow Adventure is the culmination of many years of testing, learning, and perfecting our hard shell roof top tent design, now with the option to add crossbars to the top of the tent!

Now redesigned and expanded with more headroom, more storage options, and more compatibility with accessories means you can seriously level up your camping game. Bring your favorite cook stove, hang some string lights, and keep your portable speaker charged all weekend long.

Plus, the ability to add the included set of crossbars to the top of the tent means that you can carry anything you want in addition to your Roofnest! The crossbars can be easily added or removed and can support up to 100 lbs when the tent is closed (to operate the tent, only 40 lbs can be stored on top).

So what are you waiting for? Take flight in a Roofnest Sparrow Adventure.
