Roof Top Tent

Now more popular than ever, due to the increase in adventure seeking campers/enthusiasts and over landers- those who are self-reliant overland travelers who make their way to remote destinations, with the journey being the whole goal, Roof-top tents are seemingly here to stay. Most are made to at least comfortably fit 2 adults and can be securely attached to a rack positioned don the roof of a car or truck and even the bed of your truck. These campers provide their users with the ability to camp from a greater vantage point then sleeping on the ground and having to worry about any and everything that comes alive during the night. The campers also offer the ability to be set up a lot faster than conventional campers as they normal “pop up” or “pop out” of their flat incasing, that normally only require a crank shaft mechanism to lift it up. Although very useful, these babies are not cheap, during our research we found that the average of these tents range from $1,000- $2,500. A great place to start for them is

Speed much? For anyone who is notorious for having a heavy foot when it comes to driving, having a radar detector in your car is always going to be a smart buy.
