If you’re thinking about getting a rooftop tent for your vehicle, read on to learn about the advantages and what you need to consider.

Advantages of a Rooftop Tent

One of the main advantages of rooftop tents is that they’re quick and easy to set up, and just as easy to pack down when you’re done. This is a bigadvantage compared to other tent options. Once the tent is packed, it can be stored away neatly so that it won’t be difficult to transport. With rooftop tents,you can also enjoy better views, less dirt getting into your tent, and a higher level of security from Australia’s large wildlife population.

Within minutes, you can set up your rooftop tent and be ready for sleep. Packing is also a one man job that can be done within minutes. Whether you’re out alone or with company, the rooftop tent is a great tent option to consider.

What to Consider When Buying Rooftop Tents

First, you should be aware that there are different types of rooftop tents out there. The right rooftop tent will depend on how many people the tent will house as well as your style of camping. Some tents are very simple, while others have additional rooms or awnings. Some have extra capacity to host a few other people, or will even have additional space that can be used as a dining area.

Although there are different models of rooftop tents available, the basic structure and mode of operation is similar. Each tent comes with soft walls, a soft or hard roof, a door and windows. However, they can vary largely in terms of the type of material used and additional features such as storage, awnings and lighting.

You’ll also need to consider the cost of different tents before settling for one. The cheapest rooftop tent in Australia goes for about $500, while a high-quality tent will require you to part with at least $1200-$1300. If you want a remote-controlled rooftop tent, you’ll be looking at a cost of $5500.

Other Factors to Consider

  • * In case you’re shipping your rooftop tent, you should confirm the shipping costs with the manufacturer. Some manufacturers offerfree shipping when the customer has already paid a premium for the product. However, others will require you to pay an additional shipping fee. If you want to avoid the hassle and cost of delivery, you can alsochoose to buy your tent in-store.

  • * You’ll need to choose between a soft-top or hard-top tent. Hard-top tents are heavier and more costly, but they’re also more durable and quicker to fix. Soft-top tents have delicate materials that can need more care and maintenance.

In summary, the type of rooftop tents you choose will be determined by the number of people that you’ll be hosting, the model you want, and how much money you’re willing to part with.
