The Best Rooftop Tent – for Jeeps, Trucks & Cars?

Do you want to sleep in a tent on op of your car? The Smittybilt Overlander Rooftop tent provides the ultimate solution for people who don’t want a lot of extra work.

This tent is easy to install, quick to set-up and move comfortable and cozy than you’d expect. We’re talking a 15-minute set-up, a thick, dense mattress, skylights, interior lights and more…

Smittybilt Overlander Rooftop Tent for Jeeps, Trucks and SUVs

Not only does this roof tent give you an elevated, comfortable and safe spot to sleep, it doesn’t take up valuable storage space inside your vehicle. Just strap it on to your roof rack. The heavy-duty PVC cover keeps it clean, dry and protected while you drive.

Note: The Smittybilt Overlander has a universal installation design and therefore fits most trucks and SUV’s. For example, customers have also used the Overlander Roof Tent on a 4Runner, a Toyota Tacoma pickup truck, Ford F150, Subaru Outback and more.

If you need one, you can get Smittybilt SRC roof racks for Jeeps. For truck beds, you may want to get a bed rack like this to which you can secure the tent mounting brackets

Rooftop Tent VS Ground Tent:

The Overlander looks very much like a traditional camping tent. However, you don’t have to find a flat area to pitch your tent, nor do you have to stake it to the ground.

In addition, the elevated design keeps you safe from animals. Plus, it gives you a great 360 degree vantage point from where you can view your surroundings.

You may also find that this style of folding tent sets up faster than your regular ground tent. (And you can pack it away quicker too.)

Video: How to Set Up the Overlander Rooftop Tent in 15 Minutes:

One of my favorite features of the Overlander 2783 is how easy it is to set up. Once you have it installed on your roof or bed rack, you simply need to remove the cover and straps and then unfold the tent.

The attached ladder allows you to swing open the tent with minimal effort, and you only need 1 person for the job. Finally, insert the tent poles, and you’re done. (Note: The video actually shows the larger XL version.)

Rooftop Tent Kit Includes Several Extra Accessories:

Jeep Roof Top Tent Includes LED LlightsThis complete, all-in-one tent kit includes several accessories to make your outdoor adventure feel more cozy and comfortable. For instance, it comes with lighting as well as a 12-volt power adapter. Therefore, you don’t have to hassle with carrying lanterns or fumbling around at night in the dark.

In addition, the interior of the tent has several pockets, loops and hooks for attaching important items and storing small items. You even get a detachable shoe bag to hang outside the tent, conveniently next to the entry door.

The package also comes with a high density double/full-size mattress with a removable, washable cover. Some people find this perfectly comfortable sleeping, but you can add extra cushioning with a cheap piece of egg crate memory foam.

You also get the tent ladder. And by the way, you can set up your tent to access it from either side of your vehicle.
