The Perfect Weekend Getaway Tent

FacebookTwitterGoogle+TumblrPinterest

In my search for a weekend camper I came across these roof-top versions from Tepui Tents that are really starting to grow on me.  Since we can’t afford a camper yet, and although tents are pretty reasonable, these roof-top versions kind of meet half way —giving the illusion of a camper yet still a budget-friendly tent (basic tent starts under a $1,000.).  Easily mounting directly to your roof rack, the tent pops open with a retractable ladder and a wrap-around change room which can be added to the bottom (as an option).  Hack it onto the back of a hauling trailer (like above that one of their customers did) —adding a built-in kitchen or just go as it is.  I like that you don’t need a lot of muscle to set it up, making it easy for women to do too.  Also a great idea for those who take back roads, as there’s nothing to haul in the back.  Check out the gallery below for info and pictures.
