Considering a roof-top tent purchase? One of the most important steps of this process is figuring out what tents can fit in your vehicle! There’s a few steps in this process, between figuring out the weight load on your vehicle, picking the best roof rack, and the perfect tent! Here’s our guide for a first-time tent buyer
Dynamic weight load is the weight your vehicle’s roof can safely support while it’s moving. You can find your dynamic weight load in your vehicle’s user manual. To safely support a rooftop tent, your car will need to have a dynamic weight load of 165 lbs (75 kg) for larger tents/four person tents, or 125 lbs (57kg) for smaller tents, typically two-person tents.
Pickup trucks offer the most options for your rooftop tent experience. You can attach the tent on the cab, a truck cap, or the box. Here’s a breakdown of each option
Make sure to double check your vehicle’s dynamic weight load, but SUVs are typically good to go for 2 or 4 person tents. Here are a few key considerations:
Sedans are a challenge, but they can also work for a rooftop tent. The most important piece is checking your car’s dynamic weight load. A four-person tent will almost certainly be too large, and it’s probably 50/50 that your sedan can take on a two-person tent.
Your best bet with a sedan is to reach out to local experts. We’ll help you with the roof top tent piece, and your local rack dealers can also guide you
