Description

Ultra-compact. Ultra-lightweight. Ultra-affordable. At only 90 lbs and with our most compact design, the Meadowlark fits any vehicle (and budget). The Meadowlark is truly the first soft-shell roof top tent worthy of the Roofnest badge.

Details

Ditch outdated and cumbersome softshells with their guy lines and poles. The sturdy Meadowlark sets up in seconds– just unclip the cover, unfold the tent with the telescoping ladder, lock the interior U-bar, and camp is set. When you're ready to hit the road again, simply fold it up and be on your way. 

Note: Maximum crossbar spread for installation is 35".

Warranty

Every Roofnest comes with a two year warranty to the original purchaser against manufacturer defects covering workmanship, parts, and materials which fail under normal use so you can rest easy.

FAQs

In almost all cases, yes!

All of our tents attach to the roof via standard crossbars (or platform racks), so as long as you have a good set with an adequate weight rating, you will be ready to camp. Tent selection depends on your specific vehicle, preferences, and needs. In general, XL tents will fit better on full-size vehicles and our more compact tents work well on small ones.

For more information on roof racks, weight limits, and tent selection check out this video

Once you have crossbars or a rack, installation is very straightforward. You will use the included mounting hardware and simply clamp it around your crossbars or roof rack and tighten to secure the tent.

For detailed installation instructions, please check out this page.

Our current delivery time will take approximately 5-13 days from the time of purchase to your door. All of our tents, except the Meadowlark, ship via LTL freight.

The Meadowlark is the smallest and lightest of any of our tents so is a great fit on almost any vehicle. It's most popular on small sedans, wagons, or crossovers and over compact or midsize truck beds.

Due to its innovative design, the Meadowlark is as easy to operate as a hard-shell tent. Simply unclip the quick cover, grab the ladder to fold it out, and you’re ready to camp.

Yes! Its heavy-duty rainfly and strong aluminum frame mean the Meadowlark can stand up to weather conditions all year-round.
