    Best Roof Top Tents for Subaru Outback

    If you are looking to buy a roof top tent for your Subaru Outback then you have come to the right place! Before we jump into reviewing the roof top tents let us quickly address the elephant in the room.

    Can you put a roof top tent on Subaru Outback?

    So here's the thing, even though Subaru Outback is a great 4x4 vehicle -- the standard roof rails it comes with are not strong enough to hold a roof top tent. It probably with some luck can hold an RTT that weighs less than 100 lbs but nothing more. We believe this is true for all Subaru outback models including the 2019 and 2020 models.

    However, that doesn't mean you can't mount an RTT on your outback. You can but you will need to install a good roof rack or cross rails first. Doing so will enable you to mount any roof top tent you want.

    Now that we have addressed that, Let's look at some of the best roof top tents for Subaru outback currently on the market.
