OVS Mamba Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Is it possible to put this tent on my car?
Yes, the Mamba 3 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 OVS Mamba Tent on your vehicle, you'll need a roof rack or a bed rack that has crossbars that can handle the weight of the tent. 

When it comes to set up and takedown, how long does it take?
In less than 1 minute, you can set up and take down the Mamba 3 roof top tent. Seriously!

Are hard-shell roof top tents worth it?
You know that 1-minute setup we mentioned in the last answer? That's a hard shell roof top tent thing. Only hard shells can deploy and be taken down that quickly. Hard shell roof top tents are also heavier duty, providing more protection from the elements. If you value fast setup and strong protection, they're worth the investment.  

Are rooftop tents warm in winter?
Oh man, if you haven't used a roof top tent in winter, your mind is about to be blown! Your camping season just got extended to a full 12 months. Roof top tents, and hard shell roof top tents in particular, are significantly warmer than ground tents. With thick walls, a metal base, and several inches of mat + mattress, you'll be plenty comfortable no matter the elements. 

Do rooftop tents damage the roof?
Rooftop tents do not damage the roof of the vehicle with proper installation and use! The tent attaches to the crossbars of the roof rack and never even touches the roof.

Do roof top tents get moldy?
The Mamba tent includes an anti-condensation mat below the mattress, which is specifically designed to prevent any wetness buildup that could cause mold. With proper use and ventilation (feel free to reach out for tips!) you'll never have a mold issue.

How much MPG do you lose from a roof top tent?
Hard shell tents like the Mamba are more aerodynamic than soft shell ones, given their hard outer shell and lower profile. If you mount it on the bed of your truck, beneath the cab, you won't see any loss in fuel efficiency whatsoever. If you mount it on the roof of your car or truck, you may see your MPG drop by 1 or 2. If you do most of your driving on highways, expect closer to 2+. If you are just bouncing over dirt roads, you'll barely notice a difference. 

Is it safe to sleep in a roof top tent?
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 - especially hard shell tents like the Mamba,

How long do roof top tents last?
The OVS Mamba comes with a 4-year warranty, but we've found most customers never need it - the typical hard shell roof top tent lasts much longer than that with normal use.

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 hard-shell 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 4-year warranty. 

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 Mamba) home traveling with you wherever you go. It's convenient to set up and fun for the whole family. But don't just take our word for it. Read below for the Mamba tent review section.

Mamba tent

Mounted this to our f150 and have used it a bunch. Great tent - super warm

Ruby S.


We've always wanted a RTT for our 4runner and ended up going with this one after getting a lot of help from Overland Junction. We wanted a hardshell that had crossbars so we could keep carrying the stuff we used to have on our roof. It's been working out great

Robert K.

Awesome service

We ordered another tent (Rambler) that was out of stock, which was furstrating. Overland Junction helped us find this as an alternative, and it's been awesome. Had seen too much online about it like I had for the Roam, so I wanted to write this review to say buy it!

Curtis D.

Mamba Italiano!

Mamba #5! Sorry. Love this tent, and mount my kayak to the crossbars (haven't only tested that because it's too cold to kayak right now). But tent itself is working out well and we're definitely 5 stars pleased.
