LifestyleWhy You Need Rough Country's Rooftop Tent

Seth Dortch

June 22, 2022




Let's talk about why you should consider getting a rooftop tent. For some people, a ground tent works fine. But the benefits of having a tent that gets you off the ground and one that stays on your rig are important to consider. Rooftop tents can be mounted on a bed rack, roof rack, or trailer, depending on the setup. If you're planning a trip to a remote area and want to be prepared for any condition, having a rooftop tent with you is essential. I have used mine in a wide range of situations and environments—from desert camping to the mountains—and the ability to quickly set up shelter gives me the confidence to go where I need to go when I need to.
