The Sparrow XL features an 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
The Sparrow, Sparrow XL, and Sparrow EYE have 3 doors, one on the rear and one on either side. The Sparrow and Sparrow XL have a window on the front. Every door and window has both bug mesh and a canvas cover and you can unzip both for entry or exit 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.

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.
Sparrow's ease and convenience are top notch
I love my Roofnest, what freedom to carry a reliable tent atop my 2016 Hybrid Rav4. Easy to pop up even in the dark, no messy tent issues in the rain. At 5’4″, I struggled with the set-up and tear down of the Yakima SkyRise rooftop tent, and I’m grateful for the ease of use and comfort that the Roofnest provides. Roll into a campsite late at night after a long day of driving and be asleep in minutes. The foam mattress provided is comfortable alone, and the interior of my Sparrow is plenty spacious for me to want to lay around, relax and read on my activity rest days. I was between the Sparrow and the Sparrow Eye, but I’m super glad I went with the bigger one. The Sparrow Eye would be perfect for a smaller car. I didn’t have any issues with weight or drag going 75mph. Great product, great price, great customer service (Thanks Tim!), highly recommend.
Sleeping better than ever in my Sparrow
My Sparrow is literally the most comfortable and handsome Roof Top Tent that I’ve owned! Thank you Roof Nest for an excellent product and for making my adventures that much more comfortable and worry free!
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.
Team Roofnest rocks!
Roofnest Rocks!!! Our team at UOU OUTDOORS has been using Roofnest for several months now. We did a lot of research before choosing a rooftop tent. The quality, functionality, price, & customer service Tim Nichols provides is heads & tails above the rest … so much so we intend to continue putting a Roofnest tent on each vehicle we add to our fleet.
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.
