Golden Tent - Truly 360-Degree Views
Lots of tents promise 360-degree views because they have a door or window on all four sides. The Golden Roof Top Tent from Overland Junction makes those tents squirm.
Like those tents, the Overland Junction Golden has a door on each of the two long sides, and a window on each of the short sides. And then it goes MUCH further.
Here's how: The tent's outer layer has a zipper all the way around, so you can unfasten the walls and drop them to the floor, giving you truly panoramic, open-air, 360-degree views. Nothing separates you from nature.
Worried about bugs in an open air tent? We've got you! If you want the views without the bugs, simply zip up the mesh layer. Not only does each door and window have its own mesh screen, but the entire tent does too. See more below.
Fully Open With Mesh
Want bug protection? Simply zip the mesh layer to keep the views and fresh air, but block bugs. The mesh has windows and doors.
Windows and Doors
Want more protection but still views and air flow? There's a window on each short side and a door on each long side.
Views and fresh air are great, but sometimes you need comfort and warmth! Especially if it's raining or snowing. Simply zip everything up.
Extreme Weather Protection
Don't let the 360-degree views fool you: If you find yourself rain, snow, or cold, you can zip right up and stay warm and comfortable.
We designed and tested this tent at 9,000' in the Colorado Rockies, where we get 300 inches of snow a year. It works great in snow, rain, and hot summer sun.
The body fabric is a high-quality 280g polycotton rip-stop. It's waterproof to a jaw-dropping 5000mm.
The shell is glass fiber reinforced plastic. That's what protects the tent when you're not in it, and serves as your floor and roof when you are in it.
Golden Sleeping Experience
Unbeatable views can only go so far - when it's time to sleep, you want comfort. The Overland Junction Golden has a 2.75 inch high-density foam mattress with a washable cover.
Plus, there's a polyester anti-condensation mat underneath the mattress to help you avoid any moisture buildup and stay dry no matter how tightly you've zipped yourself in.
If you're sleeping with the walls up and doors and windows closed, the thick, all black tent fabric also helps keep the inside dark.
And if you want light while you're closed in, we've included a USB-powered LED light and 3M magnets so you can hang your light and read, play cards, or just hang out.
Golden Tent Storage
The last thing you want when you're camping on top of your vehicle is to have to keep climbing down to get things. So, we've given you plenty of storage inside the tent.
There are two sets of large, hanging pockets (four pockets total). And there is also a removeable netting across the top of the tent, giving you plenty of space for even larger items.
Often, people will put phones, flashlights, glasses, water bottles, and books in the side pockets. And extra layers or changes of clothes up top. Everything you need, within reach.
Overland Junction Golden Setup
When you roll into camp late at night, you want a tent that sets up in a flash. Enter: The Overland Junction Golden.
Set up takes about a minute - even less once you get the hang of it. Simply unfasten the latches, give the tent side a push, and the hydraulic rods do the rest. Then, grab the ladder from the tent, extend it out, and you're good to go.
Pro tip: You can leave the doors and windows open or closed when you pack up. People who know they often arrive late will leave their preferred door open and everything else closed, so when you pop open the tent, you can simply climb right in and go to sleep.
Packing up is almost as fast. Put the ladder back in the tent, and then use the hanging ropes to pull the tent back down. Fasten the Velcro straps to hold it in place, tuck the tent fabric inside, and fasten the latches. Easy peasy.
Latches and Straps
Each corner of the shell has a velcro strap and stainless steel latch to securely fasten it in place.
The 7.5-foot ladder closes down to fit conveniently inside the tent when you're not using it.
Thanks to the pre-installed mounting rails and brackets, the tent installs on almost any vehicle's crossbars.

Overland Junction Golden Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Is it possible to put this tent on my car?
Yes, the Overland Junction Golden is compatible with the vast majority of cars and trucks.
What do I need to get this roof top tent installed on my car/truck?
To mount the Overland Junction Golden on your vehicle, you'll need crossbars or a roof rack or bed rack that has crossbars. Crossbars are the ones that run from one side of the car to the other.
Will this tent work on my factory roof rack?
Because the Overland Junction Golden is only 154 pounds (light for a high quality hard shell tent), it works on many factory roof racks. You need crossbars (the ones that run from one side of the car to the other) not just side rails (the ones that run from front to back). And the dynamic weight capacity of your roof rack needs to be able to handle the weight of the tent.
My roof rack weight capacity is only 165 pounds and I weigh more than that - can I not have a roof top tent?
You can almost certainly still use a tent! You're confusing dynamic and static weight capacity. 165 pounds is a very common dynamic weight capacity. 150-200 is where almost all factory roof racks fall. But that's the weight capacity when you're driving down the highway at 80 mph and the wind is trying to rip the tent off the car. The static weight capacity is the one you need to worry about when you're actually in the tent - when the car is not moving. That weight capacity is almost always a non-concern because it's several times higher than the dynamic weight capacity. Be sure to consult your owner's manual to confirm weight capacities.
When it comes to set up and takedown, how long does it take?
You can set the tent up by yourself in under a minute. Take down is about 90 seconds, but you can get that down once you get the hang of it.
How safe are rooftop tents?
Roof top tents are far safer than ground tents, because they are elevated off the ground, away from animals and other critters, and they are larger and more heavy duty than typical ground tents.
Do you leave your roof top tent on all the time?
Lots of customers put the tent on their vehicle one time, and never take it off. The heavy duty shell keeps the tent safe from the elements. However, some customers choose to remove the tent if they know they will not be using it for an extended period of time.
Does it come with a warranty?
Yes! It comes with a 2-year warranty.
How much weight can a roof top tent take?
The weight capacity of the Overland Junction Golden Roof Top Tent is 660 pounds.
Is it a good idea to have a rooftop tent?
We may be biased, but heck yeah! They are hands down the best way to explore the great outdoors. You never have to worry about lodging: you have a comfortable, safe (even luxurious in the case of the Overland Junction Golden) home traveling with you wherever you go that's convenient to set up and fun for the whole family. But don't just take our word for it. Read below for Overland Junction Golden roof top tent reviews.
