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.

Highly recommend Roofnest
We are one week into a road trip with our new ROOFNEST and really loving it. Super easy setup and breakdown. The bed is very comfortable! Our sleep is so much better than a tent. We highly recommend The ROOFNEST and love it on our 4Runner. People come up and ask us daily how we like it.
Love the personal touch
We are from Michigan, and visiting friends in Colorado last year. Tim was good enough to invite us to see the Roofnest on his company van. that sold us! it arrived in perfect condition when we ordered or a couple months later. in addition, I’ve never seen a company more responsive to comments or concerns from owners and prospective customers on social media. highly recommend, and love ours!
Kudos to the Roofnest team
They have been super helpful as we were trying to decide which RTT company to go with and which model. We just got it today and it’s awesome!
My Roofnest can handle anything!
Hands down the most cherished piece of gear I own. Light, nimble, sturdy, and best of all it’s easy. It fits just as easily on my old Subaru Crosstrek as it does on my new Toyota Tacoma. I’ve put this thing through the ringer and it’s stood up to everything I’ve thrown at it. Camping on a frozen lake in the White Mountains of NH with a -35 degree wind chill, to hot muggy summer nights in the Shenandoah. Night after night this thing has proven itself. The guys at Roofnest have really created something in a league of it’s own.
Wind is no match for my Roofnest
Trip to OBX with the new Roofnest . Had a night with reported unsustained 70 mph gust . Very impressed with the performance of my tent.
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?
