Mounting Tent

  • Mounting your tent requires a minimum of 2 people for lifting.
  • Your tent will ONLY OPEN ON THE PASSENGER SIDE. Position the tent on top of the vehicle’s roof rack, bed rack, or trailer and center to your liking.
  • Using the supplied hardware and mounting plates, slide the hardware into the channel so there are 2 bolts per corner (one in front and one behind the vehicle’s crossbars).
  • Run the bolts through the mounting brackets holes, thread nuts onto each bolt.
  • Confirm you are happy with the position of the tent, vehicle balance, and appearance then tighten all nuts to the brackets until the tent cannot move.
  • Undo the buckles on the side of the tent, push up on the handle to actuate the hydraulic rams to open the tent hard shell, Pull out on the telescoping ladder until it is fully extended- pull down on ladder until the folding side of the tent has opened and extended fully.

How do I keep my roof top tent shell looking nice?

Not unlike a Brazilian model, keep it clean and waxed. Just like anything that you want to keep nice you need to maintain it. This means washing and waxing on a semi-regular basis. Sticks and stones, bird dookie, bug splatter, salty air, bad jokes, etc. will all work to etch and ruin your sweet, beautiful Alpha shell.

Can I run my vehicle and tent through a car wash?

Not unless you're filming something for Instagram and don't care if your tent gets ripped from the vehicle like a category 5 hurricane.

Similar to, "The Princess and the Pea" I too require a memory foam mattress. Why don't you sell one with your tents?

Have you ever fallen into a memory foam bed when it's cold? If so, then you know why we do not offer memory foam mattresses. Cold weather and memory foam are not friends. Not only does memory foam "freeze" up in the cold but it holds moisture and its little friend mold. RTT's have enough issues with condensation. You do not want to add a hard, wet, moldy sponge to the mix.
