As I get older and my family gets bigger, I realize more and more the value of a rooftop tent. My serious backpacking trips are fewer and further between these days, while the overlanding and car camping trips start to take precedence. The Road Trip rooftop tent from ikamper is a pretty great option for packing a versatile, roomy and practical tent without filling up the back seat. Both the main tent and the optional annex room that extends it to the ground are specifically designed to be as wind resistant as possible while still shedding rain water easily to the ground so there aren’t any areas where it can pool and seep in. There is an awning that provides a little extra shade and makes it even easier to get in and out of the car when the weather takes a turn for the worse. When it’s time to pack up, the tent folds back into itself and even zips closed into an integrated cover, so there is no separate piece to lose track of. There are three sizes and the large will run you $2,950, but it’s a great investment in getting you outdoors more.
