Kind of old school, kind of safari, you have to love the canvas version of the roof top tent. The canvas lite tent is a pretty small package to put on the roof of your car but it folds out into a super spacious pod for 2 persons to bed down in for the night.
The tent comes with a mattress, telescopic ladder, intergraded skylight for star watching and is a perfect fit for cars of any size.
Made out of 280gsm rip-stop canvas with a 2000mm PU-membrane its super strong and totally waterproof.
The tent has stainless steel and aluminium used throughout as well as 600D polyester rain hood covers and doors. This might be a “lite” tent but it packs seriously tough weather credentials.
The canvas tent takes a little longer to unpack than its hardshell counterparts but its still only a 5 minute job. What’s really cool is that once you have taken the pvc car cover off you can grab the ladder from the side of your car/van and simply pull it open and effectively double the size of it and your living space.
Then it’s just a case of pulling a few cords and placing the 8 entrance polls in place to get set up!
When your canvas tent box lite arrives you will need to do a little work fixing the two rails that are part of the system for fixing your tent to your car. You will also need to fix the ladder in place. This is a very simple job and just a case of a few nuts and bolts.
Then it’s just a matter of fitting the 4 standard roof top tent brackets using the handy spanner supplied to get it done in no time at all.
The box has a reinforced bottom section to take the weight. The estimated distance between your cross bars should be at least 80 cm.
Most vehicles roofs are rated to carry this weight so it’s no problem at all. The package doesn’t supply roof cross bars.
