Camping in and around our beautiful country should be top of your wanderlust list, and is the perfect way to unplug and take in the simplicity of nature.  If you’re an enthusiastic camper, it could be time to ditch your tent on the cold, muddy ground and elevate your camping experience with a rooftop tent. Rooftop tents are an easy solution whether you’re heading on a rugged adventure, family excursion or weekend getaway. Rooftop tents are made for campers who love adventure.

Jamie Owen, marketing manager for Thule SA, gives the lowdown on the benefits of rooftop tents and his top tips on how you can (quite literally) raise your camping game.

The benefits of a rooftop tent vs traditional ground camping tents: 

Quick and easy setup: Rooftop tents can be opened and packed away within minutes. You don’t have to connect a bunch of poles and secure them in the ground like a ground tent. All you have to do is unfold the tent and you’re done. This means more time exploring and less time setting up camp.

Get off the ground: Most rooftop canvasses are waterproof, so you can keep high and dry in any weather. Also, rooftop tents keep you safe from animals, you track less dirt in, and they allow you to enjoy the enhanced view that camping above-ground gives you. Some rooftop tents even have built-in sky panels, so you can drift off gazing at the stars.

Stay comfortable: With built-in memory-foam mattresses, a guaranteed flat surface to sleep on, plenty of ventilation, and places to stash your gear, rooftop tents mean a comfortable night’s sleep no matter where your adventure takes you. Rooftop tents are also built to last. They handle bad weather better than ground tents and can be used in tricky terrain, unlike caravans.

At just 61cm wide, the award-winning Thule Tepui Foothill tent (Gold Winner at ISPO Awards 2021) is half the width of most roof top tents on the market thus taking up very little space on your roof rack. The innovative design is spacious enough to comfortably sleep two adults while preserving enough room on the roof to easily load a bike, kayak or other gear for an outdoor adventure full of activities.

When folded, the low-profile design sits just 24cm above the roof rack allowing owners to drive under most low clearance structures such as garages and underground parking. A single person can deploy and break down the rooftop tent with its intuitive internal telescoping poles. Once deployed, the spacious interior features a wide entry, oversized panoramic windows and dual skylights for plenty of breathability and an expansive view of the stars.

Stand a chance to elevate your next dream adventure.  Enter the Thule competition here and you could win a Thule Tepui Foothill Rooftop tent valued at R34 999.
