Yes. As long as you can fit roof bars or a roof rack to your car, then a roof tent can be mounted to your car. You will need to check in your vehicle’s handbook to make sure your vehicle’s roof is capable of carrying 50kg+ of dynamic weight.

Our awnings come equipped with full vehicle fitting kits (bolts, brackets, even tools) and detailed instructions. All our fixing are made from premium stainless steel 304-grade metal. This is to prevent corrosion/rust and provide added strength.

We also provide a fitting service with the purchase of any of our products, please contact for more details.

All waterproof materials will be given a waterproof rating that is determined with a hydrostatic head test- most often referenced in mm. The higher the rating the more waterproof it is. If a material is 2500mm waterproof this means the fabric can withstand 2500mm of water over a day before water will start to penetrate through. The minimum standard for a material to be waterproof is 1500mm.

All of our products, roof tents and awnings have a 2-year warranty, for any manufacturing defects that might occur. In the unlikelihood of any issues or defects please contact us at and we will be on hand to help.
