Opening up campsites and opportunities that were, until now impossible to reach.


With many available rooftop tents on the market, it’s hard to know which one is for you. Firstly, you’ll need to decide how much space you need at camp.

If you are a ‘bigger is always better’ type of person, then a roof top tent like the Adventure Kings Roof Top Tent Tourer with an included Annex is one of the most spacious roof mounted tents on the market. With 2 massive levels of sheltered area, you can use the annex area as a change room, a kitchen, a second bedroom for the kids or even just somewhere to store your gear at night so no one nicks it! The annex is included in the purchase price of the Tourer, while some competitors charge you extra for it. Do your research before buying so you don’t pay more than you need to.
