Get Outside Faster & Stay Longer with a Roofnest

Say hello to a better night’s sleep and camping made simple with a roof top tent

Camping Elevated

Roofnest makes the industry’s most rugged and comfortable hard shell RTTs.  Just pop open the latches and in under a minute, your tent is ready to go — on any terrain and in any weather.

A Roofnest means spending more time relaxing with friends and family around the campfire, and less time wrestling with tent poles and air mattresses, or worrying about critters on the ground.

Say goodbye to sleeping on cold, bumpy, and uneven ground, and hello to better views, a cleaner tent, and most importantly, an excellent night’s sleep.

Sparrow XL

At the height of the Covid pandemic our Sparrow allowed us to cross the country safely. From New Jersey to Colorado. We crossed in comfort and with the ability to stop any time anywhere. Easy set up and take down. Thank you Roofnest for making this possible. Now we look forward to great happy holidays away exploring….

Challenging install but enjoying the tent

RoofNest needs to hire women!! Are there any? Every single person I talked with throughout my buying process was a man. Also, I am 5’4″ and I will need to use a stool to open and close my tent.. something that was not stated in any materials that I read. Not a deal breaker, but it would have been nice for someone to address height issues. Furthermore, taking down the tent is slower as a solo camper than it is when you have a second person to help tuck the fabric along the edges. I timed myself at about 16 minutes with the awning poles, rain fly, etc. Because of the factory roof rack on my 2006 Hyundai Tucson, it took 3 hours to secure the hardware to the rack. This was due to the tight distance between the roof of the car and the mounting brackets. We used duct tape and a stick to keep the bracket up against the Condor’s mounting plate and used the supplied ratchet. Very awkward. I wish that I had been warned about this before my tent arrived and I even sent photos to customer service and they didn’t say anything either. Another immediate challenge was the telescoping ladder. It is finicky and you have to get used to it! Make sure and extend it ALL the way before adjusting the top rungs. Customer service responded quickly and I figured it out after our call. Once I got everything secured, I went for an overnight and it was absolutely lovely! It’s like a mobile tree house, floating in the clouds. I am in my early 50’s and appreciated the firm mattress. Also, the air flow, multiple windows and skylight are a delight. I haven’t tried the LED twinkle lights yet but I’m sure they will be a nice touch.

Love the tent, it did have a defect, overall fantastic

I used this tent across 169 miles on the Mojave road and throughout Death Valley and it has been great. The mattress in my opinion is just right, I have exped megamats and do not have to use it with the mattress. It is just thick enough although Im sure there will be people who would wish for more cushion. Ive used it in snow, and when all the windows are closed due to cold weather it does tend to build up moisture inside from exhaling. Keeping some windows open for ventilation helps with this and opening up all the windows for a few minutes dries everything fairly quick at least in dry weather. Ive used it in rain as well and seems very waterproof. DEFECT, the tent had a defect from the manufacturer, in my opinion its not that big of a deal. The light cables for the inside and outside of the tent need to be on same side of the tent to plug into the provided controller. Mine are on opposite ends of the tent, one for outside on left side of the tent on one for the inside on the right. This makes it impossible to use with one battery pack and one controller. Roofnest did provide me with a second controller and some other goodies that made me happy for this minor nuisance which does not effect the overall use of the tent in my opinion. I have been ground tenting for a very long time and bring along two kids 8 and 6 and my wife and we all fit inside fine. We have plenty of room if my wife 5ft, 8 and kids all sleep vertically and I lay horizontally near the entrance. We usually just sleep all vertically and just alternate one kid and one adult heads pointed towards hard side of tent and the other two heads towards entrance and have just enough room. I did have to grind down the heads of the mounting bolts to get them to fit the channel on the bottom of the tent to make them fit properly but also not that big of a deal with my Dremel tool. Best nite sleep I’ve ever had outside. Can’t wait for my next trip with it.

Best in the business

I have many friends with rooftop tents I shopped long and hard for mine,, many reviews and lots of homework, I finally pulled the trigger on my roof nest condor XL, which has been ideal for my little family and dogs. My tent arrived ahead of schedule which was great, but I had damage from shipping in the corner of the tent, a couple of rivets and some broken aluminum corner pieces. I contacted roof Nest via email they responded quickly and had me taken care of well beyond my expectations, within a matter of days. my tent now is 100% and I’m Beyond satisfied, this company has the best customer service I have ever dealt with. The tent,,,, I can’t say enough about this tent, we camped in 35° temperatures, high in the mountains we had little condensation. the set up is such a breeze it looks great on my truck and the mattress Is phenomenally comfortable. The lighting is awesome. If your on the fence,,, This is the company to choose, i mean come on,, Free Shipping?? Its a no brainer.
