Nomad 1300 Hard Shell Rooftop Tent

THE HARD SHELL ADVANTAGE: The benefits of a hard shell rooftop tent really come into their own when looking at the convenience of set up and pack up as the hard shell cover itself forms a functional part of the tent’s construction.

QUICK AND EASY SET UP: Set up becomes a breeze with little structural poles to place; simply pop it open, fold out the ladder and you’re literally a few steps away from a good night’s sleep.  Packing the tent back up is as easy as removing the flexi-rods, folding in the floor, and pulling down the lid.

COMFORTABLE AND SPACIOUS: The Nomad 1300 features a spacious queen sized mattress at 6.7-ft. x 5.2-ft dimensions and is made from a high-density foam and 3D anti-condensation mat that is 1 inch thick.  With a total open height of 3.9-ft. there is plenty of internal head room for sitting up for a game of cards or to simply get changed.

DURABLE CONSTRUCTION: The hard outer shell features an ABS lid with a stainless steel frame.  The tent is made from 280gsm ripstop poly-cotton fabric for peace of mind in wet and windy conditions.  The entry is complete with ripstop solid covers and zipped insect proof fine mesh. The front entry point and both side windows are protected by hooded awnings.

UNIVERSAL MOUNTING: The Nomad 1300 features a universal mounting solution that can be mounted onto a variety of crossbars.  When closed this tent's footprint is a compact 5.2-ft. x 4.3-ft. x 1-ft. that weighs approximately 150lbs.

Trail Chasers Reviews The Nomad 1300 Hard Shell Rooftop Tent

"The level of time and energy I saved to set up camp compared to every other set up I have ever had was mind blowing. I didn’t have to fold out a ground tent, set up the poles, nail in the spikes, tie down the guy wires, and then start the entire process of setting up all of the things that go inside the tent. No. I unfastened the three buckles on the hard shell cap, flipped it up, then folded out the the rest of the tent with the ladder attached. 98% of the set-up was done in seconds. Then, I crawled up and attached the tension poles that hold open the rain flaps. I unrolled the sleeping bags,...and done. I know there are some other RTT’s on the market that are even easier than that, but honestly, I have a hard time imagining it. My mind was blown with how easy this was to get set-up and ready to go." Trail Chasers, read the full review here.

TheOutbound Reviews The Nomad 1300 Hard Shell Rooftop Tent

"When speed and convenience are a priority, it’s pretty hard to beat the ease and flexibility of a rooftop tent. It pops open and is completely set up in about 5 minutes, and the best part - it effectively acts as a mobile fort for our kids. They absolutely love it.

Whether we’re posting up at our favorite scenic lookout, or hiding out from the sun during a midday break at the beach, the kids (and our friends’ kids) are always making use of the tent. Its high density foam floor is comfortable, the footprint is spacious, and it has plenty of head room just in case you want to join in on a game of cards. While it is definitely a luxury, it’s been a wonderful new complement to our family outings and everyday adventures."
