FSR Odyssey Clamshell Roof Top Tent
The Freespirit Recreation Odyssey Clamshell Roof Top Tent is one of the finest hard shell roof top tents on the market today, thanks to its distinctive low profile and aerodynamic design. It is available in two sizes: the smaller one can sleep two people and the larger one can sleep three.
Odyssey's unusual body design is one of its exceptional features. The body is constructed of Tri-Layer fabric, which is meant to keep you warm on chilly winter evenings and cool on hot summer days. It functions as an air conditioner in the summer and a warmer in the winter.
