Hello Everyone,

I'm looking into a roof top tent.
Are there ones made for Renegades?
I'm new to this - so all ideas, cautions, recommendations will be appreciated.

Thank You

Mary

Biggest thing to keep in mind is that the roof rails are only rated for so much weight. The cross bars will have weight limitations as well. I haven't done this myself, thought it looked really cool though. Most cross bars have about 150 lbs weight limit.

Hello and how are you doing so far?

A tent on top of a Renegade is not that unusual and one of our members gave a great article on their achievement. It is worthy of special praise.

Sadly I didn't save the link but I know with a search for Renegade Tent using a boolean search may bring it up.

Totally awesome is their Jeep so you really need to find it (y)(y)(y)

How long does it take to set something like that up? Looks like it could be time consuming.
Arriving and setting up camp or breaking down and getting back on the road takes 8 -10 minutes. Folding it up takes seconds. No need to remove the sleeping bags or pillows. Just push up on the ladder and flip it over like a Taco. Putting the black weather cover back on takes up most of the time.

That's fast! Now you have me reconsidering.....

I can imagine using that roof top tent for fishing, safe in the knowledge that most creepy, crawlies, can't get in my above ground tent.

Spiders Aghhhhhhhhh :cry::ROFLMAO:

I went with a four-person Silverwing roof top tent like the one pictured below.

For the rack, I bought one from GOBI.

The RTT was delivered a few months back and has been sitting in my garage ever since. GOBI racks are made once you place an order, so it takes a few months to get them. I heard from GOBI this week and they'll be processing my payment and shipping the rack to me next week.
