A great advantage of this roof top tent is that it is self contained, which means that you will be able to fit all its accessories inside when you are folding the tent and storing it in your trunk. This means that you will have plenty of space left inside your vehicle, so you can store there other necessary items for your trip. Spacious when unfolded and a space saver when folded, this is clearly an option to consider for your next adventures to the great outdoors.

The quality of the materials used for making this tent is dependable. The fabric is made of 600D polyester, a heavy duty type of material that can withstand a lot of wear and tear. The top of the fabric is impregnated with polyurethane, which makes it waterproof and a good choice for traveling in areas where the weather is extremely humid. The frame poles are made of aluminum, while the hinges are made of stainless steel, for increased durability. The maximum load the tent can support is 660 pounds, so it can easily accommodate two people traveling together.
