When you’re headed out on your next multiday adventure, you’ll be glad to sleep well and comfortably in your rooftop tent. Gone are the days when you had to pack a conventional tent and all that goes with it, such as pads, stakes and tethers. The benefits of rooftop tents are numerous, including the ability to use your Jeep as a base, easy assembly, built-in storage and no more sleeping on the ground! Plus, it’s as fun to shop for rooftop tents as it is for pick up truck bed covers. Here’s a small sampling of major manufacturers’ best rooftop tents for your Jeep.
Are you a serious explorer who spends weeks on the road? Smittybilt’s Overlander Hard Shell Roof Top Tent might just be your next best investment. The assemblage packs down into the 9-inch tall ABS body, which is slim and aerodynamic. Once erected, the tent is large enough to sleep two to three people and features an extra-long telescoping ladder that’s designed to support weights of up to 300 pounds. Ultra-lightweight and ultra-waterproof, you can expect this tent to serve you well through all kinds of terrain and conditions. Gusseted awnings and air vents contribute towards a comfortable interior, as does the 2-inch thick mattress with its foam-padded cover.
