We love options. When it comes down to choosing a rooftop tent, Tepui offers three models that get the job done. Here's the breakdown:

The Baja Series is designed for warm/humid conditions (think Baja or the Gulf Coast). This tent is the lightest and most ventilated of our picks and comes with a detachable rainfly, but it's not ideal in high winds with blowing sand, or cold winter conditions.

The Explorer Series is a good, middle-of-the-road, 4-season tent that holds up well to average levels of abuse.

The Ruggedized Series is designed for 4-season adventures and withstanding severe levels of abuse. This tent is built tough with a fully wrapped 3/4-inch internal frame and aluminum diamond plate base.

OUR PICK

In our experience living with different rooftop tents in cold, hot, windy, and rain condition, Tepui's Explorer Series tent is the just-right choice, and a solid choice for what most people need in a tent. The crew here at RIGd appreciates having a tent designed for any weather we may find ourselves in. Our Explorer has held up well in some pretty ridiculous weather so we think it's a good choice if you camp year-round or if you're heading into mountain areas, or anywhere you could encounter colder temps, thunderstorms, or light snow.

Something else to think about when choosing a RTT is weight. The Explorer weighs about 50-pounds less than their Ruggedized tent which is a win in our book and can make a difference in gas milage, how your vehicle handles, and ease of getting the tent on and off your rig.
