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 280gram 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 quiet during heavy winds due to its weight.
Doors and Windows
The Sparrow has a doorway with both mesh and canvas on either side and the rear of the tent – each can be turned into a shade awning with the included awning poles. There is a window at the front with zippers on both mesh and canvas. The tent can be entered from all 4 sides and the 3 doorways have ladder brackets under them to keep the included ladder stable.
All Roofnests are shipped with a sturdy and lightweight 8.5′ telescoping ladder that can be secured to the ladder brackets under all 3 doorways (sides and rear). The ladder collapses and comes with its own storage bag.
Every Roofnest comes with a built-in, custom-shaped 3″ 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.

Arrived perfectly and we spent 3 weeks camping across Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana last summer in a Sparrow on top of my Forester.
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!!
Life’s better on top!
A Roofnest Sparrow has been a blessing to our adventure rig. There’s no more setting up tents, blowing up sleeping pads, or sleeping on the cold ground (with the animals:)). We now pop it and climb up in under 60 seconds, making set up a breeze. The mattress is super cozy and the shell allows us to store pillows and blankets inside of the nest. Sunrise hike missions, rock climbing at the crag, or even relaxing at your local park is now upgraded due to the Roofnest Sparrow. Do yourself a favor and order today!
Living Overland Full-time
We’ve been living the Overland Life full-time for the past several weeks in the Sparrow and we love it! With it mounted on top of our 2016 Jeep Renegade we’re able to sleep in the most remote of places! The sunrises, the landscape views, and the starry nights have been incredible.

Our new Sparrow & Sparrow XL are the culmination of many years of testing, learning, and perfecting our hard shell roof top tent design.
More headroom, more storage options, and more compatibility with accessories—like our 100W flexible solar panel—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, extra legroom means you can really stretch out and relax after a long day on the trail. And with upgraded and improved construction and material, this tent is built to withstand a lifetime of adventure.
So what are you waiting for? Take flight in a Roofnest Sparrow.
