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.

best out there

I’ve had and seen other brand tents out there and not very many can come close to compare. Beside being a little spent I easily spent this amount on crappy tents and Replacemt parts for other tents I’ve had. Bar none ease of use set up and design awesome.

Good Awning, Decent Quality, Fast Delivery

I purchased the Little Wing to go in the back of my third gen Tacoma with a 6.2 ft long bed. This was one of the only awnings on the market that would fit a 6 ft bed. PRO: -Easy to open -Seems supported ok without poles -Lights built in CONS: -Cheap outside cover and zipper. We will see if the zipper doesn’t break. Would have expected a waterproof cover with a bigger YKK zipper for the price. (Overall built well, not sure why they skimped on this part) -Lights are more for ambiance than actually using for light

Adventuring is awesome with the Sparrow

I have had my sparrow for almost a year now and honestly couldn’t be happier. It is perfect size for my 70 pound dog and me! I’ve camped locally countless times and also took it on a two week road trip from the Midwest to the West coast. It is so convenient for road trips, I just pack up all my bedding and clothes in the tent! I love it.

I like it but it’s not perfect

I have the sparrow xl. It is very comfortable to sleep in and was surprisingly warm. The materials is made out of smell of chemical. I left it completely open for a few days to offgas but it still smells a little funky. It was also slightly heavier than expected it is difficult to get on and off your car without 4 people. They should sell some sort of storage solutions also. Finally. It’s difficult to close. Almost impossible with only one person and challenging with two. I love it when I am sleeping inside. It just needs minor changes. Any suggestions to how to close it more efficiently would be appreciated

Not all tents are created equal!

I did extensive research before purchasing this brand. There are many tents out there and all claim the same. I started looking at the materials used, and it was very clear there was no comparison. This tent is what I call a tank, something that can last a long time and do it’s job when it’s time to protect you from the elements. The mattress is made out of real memory foam, which are not created equal as well, you can tell by waking up fresh, or back pain. Feel free to ruin your future trips by buying aftermarkets, the inevitable future embarrassment is and will be all yours, when you wake up next to your girl, in your own personal kiddie pool..

Answer a few simple questions and we’ll tell you which Roofnest will work best for you


Can I use a Roofnest tent with any car?

You bet! A Roofnest is compatible with any car. Roofnest roof top tents attach to your car’s crossbars like a ski rack or storage box.

I’m not a hardcore camper. Would a Roofnest be good for me?

If you’re into being super comfortable and adding significant convenience to your camping experience, then a roof top tent is a smart option. Think of it like taking everything that’s great about your bedroom, sticking it on top of your car, and then getting to snooze the night away — safely and comfortably under the stars.

How many people can sleep in a Roofnest tent?

Depending on the model, you can comfortably sleep anywhere from 2-4 people, and/or some furry friends.

How long does it take to pop up and break down a Roofnest?

Set up or takedown of our roof top tents can be done in under a minute. Go ahead and time us, we’re the fastest roof top tent in the land.

Where can you use a Roofnest?

You can sleep anywhere that allows overnight parking. This includes National Parks, National Forests, BLM lands, Walmart parking lots, and in your in-laws’ driveway.

How do I get in and out of a Roofnest?

Every Roofnest comes with a telescoping ladder. They’re durable, lightweight, collapsible, and safe. Yes, you can get your big pets up there, too!

What about strong winds, rain, sleet, snow and the cold nights of winter?

Roofnests are nearly as weatherproof as your car, and certainly warmer.

Our customers have reported sleeping comfortably through major wind storms, snow storms, dust storms, and even deep freezing temps. We even have added insulation for some models.
