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.

Road tripping the NE in my Roofnest
I received my Roofnest in Rhode Island and have been using it all over New England for the past week. Once done bouncing around here, I’ll camp out of it across country to Colorado. Can’t wait to take it the rest of the way across country to the PNW and then back across Canada this summer!
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.
