After 15 months travelling the world by car with a soft-shell rooftop tent we’re upgrading to a hardshell tent. We weren't using the other one due to setup/packup time.

  • James Baroud roof top tent
    They’re more compact, quicker and easier to set up/pack away, more resistant to wind and you can drive your car while the tent is set up!
