Roofnest offers a range of tents sleeping between two and four people, designed to fit on an array of vehicles, from sedans to SUVs. You can also find tents among the Roofnest line that will allow you to carry your gear with you as you travel, including gear that would normally take up valuable space atop your vehicle, such as kayaks or skis.
