Overland Junction Labrador Overview
When we designed the Labrador, we made the tent we always wanted: a perfect combination of lightweight, large, and luxurious.
Lightweight: The 2-person Labrador weighs just 107 pounds. The 3-person Labrador is 128. And the 4-person Labrador is 146. That makes all 3 among the lightest for their size.
Large: We didn't sacrifice inches for light weight. The sleeping areas on all 3 are some of the biggest around. The 2-person is wider than a double bed, and the 4-person wider than a King.
Luxurious: We left no stone unturned - thick foam mattress, high-quality fabrics, non-metal zipper pulls so there's no clanging in the wind, external shoe pouches, two skylights and on and on.
++ Versatile: No to mention 3 sizes, option for an annex if you want more space, and an insulation layer if you do a lot of cold weather camping.
And because it looks great and is guaranteed to make you smile, we named it after the Labrador Retriever. Read on to learn more about this doggedly awesome tent.

Labrador Extreme Weather Protection
We designed and tested the Labrador Roof Top Tent at 9,000' in the Colorado Rockies, where we get 300 inches of snow each year. It works great in snow, rain, and hot summer sun.
The body fabric is a high-quality 280g polyester-cotton rip-stop. It's waterproof to 3000mm.
Plus, there's a rainfly for added protection. It's 420D polyester oxford and also has a 3000mm waterproof rating.
And while we've tested the tent and rainfly on their own in a Colorado winter, we've also made an optional insulation layer in case you want even warmer protection.
Labrador Sleeping Experience
Strong materials can only go so far - when it's time to sleep, a comfortable mattress is a must-have. The Overland Junction Labrador delivers with a 2.75 inch high-density foam mattress and washable cover that will make sure you sleep like...well, a dog.
If you're sleeping with the walls up and doors and windows closed, the thick, all black tent fabric helps keep the inside dark.
And if you want light while you're closed in, we've included USB-powered LED lights so you can read, play cards, or just hang out.
One of goals in designing this tent was that you never miss a view - whether that's north, south, east, or west (through the large door or window on every wall) OR UP!
Let's be honest, there isn't much better than stargazing from the comfort of your plush mattress at the end of a long adventure day.
So, we put not one, but two skylights in the roof. They're in the tent fabric, along with a mesh layer to keep bugs out, AND are see-through in the rainfly. To be honest, watching a rainstorm hit the roof is almost as good as watching the stars.
Add-Ons: Annex and Insulation
If you want more space, or even more warmth, we've designed an optional annex and insulation layer too.
The annex gives you an additional room beneath half of the tent where you can change, leave extra shoes or supplies, or even let your dog sleep cozily if you don't want your dirty lab inside the Lab.
The insulation layer is for those who want to use this in even the harshest winters. It's a thick polyester-cotton layer that easily attaches inside the tent, providing another thick, warm wall between you and the elements.
Labrador Tent Storage
We know from experience two truths about roof top tent storage: You don't want your muddy boots in the tent, and you don't want to have to go back down in the middle of the night for something you DO want.
So, we've included two shoe pouches you can hang outside the tent for storing shoes, boots, crocs, or whatever your camping footwear of choice.
And there are four pockets inside the tent for things like phones, books, glasses, and water.
When you get to camp late at night, you want a tent that sets up fast.
And while soft shells do take longer than hard shell tents, you can still get this one sleep ready in less than 3 minutes, and camp ready in less than 5.
Packing up is just as easy as setting up.
Check out the owner's manual for pro tips on how to make your set up and take down even faster.
The tent has velcro straps that run over the top of the travel case, as well as velcro straps under the travel case to hold everything in place.
The telescopic 7.5 foot ladder closes down and rests on top of the tent when not in use. When you want to use it, simply extend it and swing it down.
Use the easy-to-install mounting rails and universal mounting brackets to securely fasten the Labrador on almost any vehicle's crossbars.

Overland Junction Labrador Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Is it possible to put this tent on my car?
Yes, the Overland Junction Labrador is compatible with the vast majority of cars and trucks. And because it's so light, that includes many cars that other tents are too heavy for.
What do I need to get this roof top tent installed on my car/truck?
To mount the Overland Junction Labrador 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 Labrador is so light, it works on most 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 have a tent! You're likely mixing up 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. Hopefully you're not in the tent at that point?!! 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 3-5 minutes, depending on how open you want it. Takedown is very similar.
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 soft shell travel cover 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 Labrador Roof Top Tent is 700 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 Labrador) 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 Labrador roof top tent reviews.
