SUV Tent

Overall weight: 53 lb / 24 kg

It was a simple solution, the SUV. The possibility of attachment the tent to the rear of the car giving an easy access to the luggage directly from the inside of the tent was promising.

In order to set up a tent you always need a large flat surface. Any irregularities like rocks, roots, twigs could ruin your night. After a while, we stopped setting up a tent next to the car and connecting it mainly for two reasons, the dust on the car body and often the lack of space to park a car in the right place in order to be possible to connect it with the tent. During our expeditions, we are constantly on the move and we quickly realized that even with some practice, it takes a lot of time and effort to set up a big tent and beds. Daily morning routine was even more annoying, especially when the tent is wet after the rainy night.

After some time, we decided on a more convenient alternative to traditional tent, the rooftop pop up tent.
