If you're like me and you'd rather not have to fiddle around with setting up a tent with poles, stakes, and all the other hassles that go along with it. The Maggiolina AutoHome may be of interest to you. It's a rooftop camping tent that sets up in mere seconds, plus it allows you to sleep up off the cold hard ground essentially anywhere you park your car, truck, or SUV.
The rooftop camping tent is super tiny when not setup, and is sandwiched between to hard shells on the top and bottom of the tent that create very little drag while driving, thus not wasting a lot more gas like other rooftop tents, large containers, or campers/trailers do. There are 2 different versions of the rooftop tent, depending on how easily you'd like it opened up, including the AirTop version which automatically deploys once the two shells are unlocked, or there's also another version which you can crank the tent open and closed.
The unique expanding rooftop tent comes in a few different sizes ranging from a small version that fits up to 2 adults, up to a large version that can fit 2 adults and 2 children all right on the top of your car or truck. An XL version allows up to 80 inches of usable length on the mattress which is especially great for tall people. Each size also allows 36 inches of head space from the top of the mattress to the bottom of the ceiling.
One person asked if the Maggiolina Autohome leaks in the rain?
"No, these do not leak in the rain. These tents are used for exploration and camping all over the world. Visit the Autohome sites for tons of more info. These tents have been known to withstand very high winds and keep the users bone dry inside in heavy rains. Also visit the video they list on both sites."
The Autohome mounts effortlessly to any standard roof rack cross bars, and other benefits include keeping your vehicle cooled because the roof is shaded by the tent, keeping your shelter always with you and ready for a comfortable night’s sleep, keeping much more space in your vehicle by having your bed/tent on the top of your vehicle.
They also offer a canopy attachment that you can attach to the side of the tent to keep the entry clear from any rain as you get in and out of the tent. It also keeps you dry as you climb up and down the ladder when getting in and out of the rooftop tent.
The slim, aerodynamic fiberglass shell of the Maggiolina is made of durable, high quality fiberglass—laid up by hand in the AutoHome factory. The result is a smooth, washable, easily maintained exterior that will last for many years of hard use. Tough and long-lasting, this design appeals for other reasons—it is dust and waterproof, and offers minimal air resistance while traveling.
Another version called the Columbus opens up to a triangle shaped rooftop tent that allows for more headroom when opened up. You can find more information on the Columbus roof tent here.
