All our tents feature ABS outer shell reinforced with fiberglass molded into an aerodynamic design that decreases road noise and improves gas mileage. The inside of the shell is coated with an insulation layer and attractive quilted fabric to insulate, reduce noise, and give the inside a soft “feel”. The lower shell is composed of the same materials with a special shape to increase rigidity and stability. 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 (Sparrow, Sandpiper, and Eagle), there is a doorway with a mesh screen and zip closure on either side (the EYE has only one door). The canvas doorway 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 collapses and comes with its own heavy duty storage bag. The ladder 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.

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.
Stop looking, this is the RTT for you!
You truly get what you pay for. The price on RTTs is hard to swallow. We shopped around and looked at cheaper tents, but kept coming back to Roofnest. They truly stand behind their product, and after owning one, we do too. We always hear other RTT owners complain about condensation issues or not staying warm. Our only complaint is we usually oversleep when camping because it’s so cozy inside.
Easiest way to camp comfortably
We have had a Sparrow Eye for about 1.5 years and absolutely love it. My wife and I sleep comfortably with our 45 pound dog. The setup takes less than 30 seconds and we are ready to pull out from our campsite in less than 3 minutes in the morning. We are very happy with our purchase and would do it all over again.
Amazing tents from amazing people!
I spent a very long time considering if and what roof top tent would be best for me. I found Roofnest and was first drawn in by the competitive prices then by their amazingly cool an innovative products. I ultimately pulled the trigger after asking them a 1000 questions. The roofnest team was very helpful and enthusiastic. Thier support and communication was just as awesome after the sale. Now I have a great tent but also know I have a great team standing behind it.
Excited to join the flock!!
100 % Excited for our overland tent to arrive!!! The product looks like the key to opening our door to more time together, to adventures, and to exploring!! Excited to be more connect by disconnecting from the day to day grind with a super cool place to lay my head!!
The Sparrow EYE is your ticket to instant adventure. This ultra-convenient roof top tent makes escaping into the great outdoors quick, easy, and super cozy.
Just pop open one side and you’re all set — have fun kicking back by the campfire while your friends wrestle with their tent poles.
In the morning you’ll enjoy sweeping views through the oversized eye-window. And when you’re ready to head back home, just snap one side shut and you’re back on the road in minutes. What could be sweeter than that?
