We carry a few different folding Rooftop Tent Units to cover a range of various needs. These Roof Top Tents can be used for Trailer, Vehicle and Truck top mounting. They were originally developed for back country expeditions and safaris in places like Australia and South Africa and are referred to as ‘Rooftop Tents’.  We have a dedicated site for our Roof Top Tents and the accessories only found from us – Top-Tent.com, for detailed information  and all are listed in our Store.
