Weatherproof Materials & Design
The RoofBunk Explorer has our high quality 280gsm poly-cotton blend ripstop canvas material on the body of the tent and 600D Oxford polyester on the rainfly, making it completely weatherproof.
It can handle winds of up to 40mph (Gale Force 8) when opened, has waterproof silicone tape on the seams to stop leaks, and the material has a waterproof rating of 3000mm on the body and 5000mm on the rainfly. This makes it 3-5 times as waterproof as a regular ground tent and able to handle even the worst rain storms with no problem!
The materials have been treated with agents to make it UV and mould resistant, so it should be protected from being faded by the sun and we've made sure the material used on our tent is breathable to prevent condensation and dampness as much as possible.
Our travel cover is made of 1200D/680gheavy duty PVC, so it will be very durable and has a high quality zip to ensure no water seeps in on wet days too!
Opens & Closes In Minutes
Our roof top tent is able to be set up and packed away in a matter of minutes with its fold out system. You can also keep most, or in some case all of your bedding inside when it's down too if you fold your duvet before- perfect if you're on the move frequently when travelling!
Fits Any Vehicle
You should be able to fit a RoofBunk Explorer soft shell on any vehicle's roof as long as you're able to keep the roof bars between 50cm and 120cm apart, as this will sufficiently spread the load weight evenly.
We suggest getting roof bars that are rated to hold at least 50kg of weight and are ideally through bars in design if you have a smaller vehicle, as these allow more overhang on the sides.
You'll also need to check your vehicle’s maximum roof load capacity is over 50kg, which can be found in your vehicle’s user manual or after searching for the information online.
If all this sounds daunting, then please email over your vehicle's reg plate and we'll do the research for you!
Spacious Design With Canopy
The RoofBunk Explorer has a large and tall roof tent design, allowing space for taller people to sit up when needed and have a more comfortable sleep.
The interior is about as wide as a standard sized double bed at 140cm (4ft 7), 240cm long (7ft 10) and has a high enough ceiling for the tallest people you know to sit up in at 130cm high (4ft 3).
All this allows you to sleep up to 2 adults and 2 children or 3 adults on their own.
On top of this, you get another 70cm x 140cm of space outside with the canopy at the entrance and even more under the overhanging floor (120cm x 140cm). The canopy fully covers the ladder too, so you don't have to worry about getting wet when getting in and out.
You can also add an annex awning for even more space and comfort and install it so the canopy overhangs the back too!
Light, Strong & Compact
The roof tent has a strong 25mm aluminium frame and can hold up to 350kg in total (55 stone) of weight inside it when spread across the two sides, so it's very well built.
It's light at 50kg (110lb), making it easier to lift on and off your car.
The light design also means it costs you slightly less in fuel and makes it easier to find suitable roof bars to hold the load if you don’t already have them.
The foldable design allows it to take up minimal space on your roof too at 140cm x 120cm x 30cm, so it leaves room for extra gear or accessories, such as an awning.
The RoofBunk Explorer has 2 large windows and a viewing door, so you can enjoy the scenery in style on your adventures!
Plus, with the 2 skylights you can watch the stars at night or simply just have more natural light during the day.
Added Design Features
The windows are curved to help it handle higher winds and the canopy is too in order to reduce pooling.
We've designed it in a way that enables you to close it with more bedding in than other soft shell roof tents, as long as you fold your duvet or sleeping bag on the side of the RoofBunk that's getting closed on.
The Explorer also has black elastic strings inside it, which help pull the tent material in, so you should have less to tuck in when closing it.
You get a strip light on the roof that plugs into any standard USB port on a power bank to help you see when you get into bed.
We've put the travel cover straps positioned over the ladder to make sure it stays down when you're going over rough terrain or speed bumps to avoid damaging the aluminium base.
Plus every door, window and skylight on the RoofBunk Explorer has zippable mosquito nets on them to keep any bugs out, while still ensuring good airflow.
Your RoofBunk Explorer comes with a high quality aluminium telescopic ladder that can extend up to 230cm (7ft 7 inches) and a comfortable 6cm (2.5 inch) mattress. The mattress can also be removed for easy washing or you can put your own custom sized mattress in it instead for even more comfort if you wish!
You also get everything you’ll need to install it, lots of extra storage pockets for phones ect, a USB strip light on the roof, a boot bag and 8 door/window porch poles are included too if you'd prefer to prop the doors open instead of rolling them up!
With your RoofBunk, you'll get a 2 year warranty with it free of charge!
There's also an option to pay to increase this warranty by up to 5 extra years, so you'll have 7 years in total, which you can find here: RoofBunk 1 Year Warranty Extension.
