A rooftop tent can revolutionize your camping experience.
It can get you up off the ground away from the bugs and the bears, and the quick set up and break down has some huge advantages over a traditional ground tent for sure which means more time on the trail and less time tearing down camp.
While rooftop tents check a lot of boxes for the modern explorer they can also be a drag on your fuel economy and in most cases, the reason your adventure rig can no longer fit in your garage.
Conventional mounting systems for rooftop tents use clamps and hardware that are difficult to access and all of that frustration usually means that once you mount your tent you will just carry it around with you forever.
With our new Rapid Release Tent Mount System installing and removing your roof top tent can be accomplished quickly allowing you to jettison the tent during the week for your work commute. Once installed you can simply unbolt the tent at the rear of the vehicle, slide the tent back, and lift it off the vehicle to store it until your next adventure.
Shedding that extra weight not only allows you to safely store your vehicle inside your garage at night, but it also means you aren't dragging your expensive mobile hotel around with you when you don't need it resulting in better mileage and less UV wear and tear on your tent.
When installed you have the peace of mind that your rooftop tent is secured to the vehicle with security fasteners to prevent tent theft and the hardware kit includes a specialized bit to deter theft of the tent.
The proprietary design of the Rapid Release Tent Mount System uses high-quality materials and precision manufacturing to secure even the largest rooftop tents to your rack under extreme trail use.
