This Awesome Rooftop Tent Sits On Top Of Your Car
Camping just got so much easier!
If you would love to spend more time camping but don’t because of all the prep-work required, listen up because one aspect of sleeping in the great outdoors just got much easier.
Skycamp is a hard-shell rooftop tent that first saw massive success on Kickstarter, where it raised over $2.3 million from backers.
Scroll down for more details:
With its ability to fit up to four people (two adults and two children), iKamper claims its the largest rooftop tent in the world, yet the whole thing weighs only 150 pounds.
The waterproof tent can also be decked out with an annex room (letting you expand your tent down to the floor and providing a full second room), awning, storage shelf, shoe rack and other accessories, making it easy to carry a full home with you on your road trip without needing to drag along a trailer.
“iKamper roof top tents are my little tree house dreams come true,” Soon Park, iKamper’s founder, said in a press release. “With your little tree house on top of your car, you can go anywhere—strange lands and unknown places.”
Park says Jack Kerouac’s classic novel “On The Road” inspired his own love for travel and hitting the open road. A road trip he took with a trailer from Boston to Los Angeles and back led to a love outdoor camping and a desire to make stepping away from the grind easier.
The tent can be used in all weather, and sleeping bags, blankets and pillows can all be left inside the Skycamp while it’s closed. With its weight of 150 pounds, two people are likely needed in order to lift the tent onto a car—but once it’s up there, it can be assembled singlehandedly in a simple matter of seconds.
The Skycamp is still in its pre-ordering phase, so those interested in the rooftop tent can purchase it for $1,000 less than its retail price of $2,950 either on its Kickstarter page or on the iKamper website. After that, pack your bags and prepare for adventure.
