Treeline Outdoors takes “car camping” to a whole new level – like, on top of your car.
The British Columbia-based brand’s Treeline Roof-Top Tent sits in a compartment on the roof of your car during travel. Arrive at your camping destination and simply pull down the tent’s aluminum ladder. Hinged walls spring up, a solid floor folds down and Boom! you are ready to climb up and into bed.
There’s no need for sleeping pads. A cloth covered mattress made of a 2-inch thick foam lines the bottom. In the morning, you can leave your sleeping bags and other bedding inside (even the pillows) and the tent will compress them right on top of your car.
The company says the tent has room for two adults and one small child.
The Roof-Top tent is made of a poly/cotton blend material that is breathable and waterproof. It fits on any vehicle with a roof rack.
The tent costs a lofty $1,350, but if you are looking for an alternative to a tent trailer or RV, the price might be worth it. No more pitching a tent, just park at your favorite trailhead, unfold and climb up the ladder to a comfortable night’s sleep.
