Extreme Weather Protection

If you've even been overlanding or spent some time in the great outdoors, you know that weather can be unpredictable. You have to be prepared for whatever Mother Nature throws your way.

The good news: OVS created the Nomadic 2 with this in mind, outfitting it to handle extreme weather conditions with ease.

A 600D rip-stop polyester-cotton waterproof canvas, with PU 3000 waterproofing, and a 420D polyester oxford waterproof rainfly make up the body of the Nomadic 2 roof top tent.

Also, the body canvas is robust, ensuring you remain comfortable regardless of the weather. The built-in rainfly will keep water out of the tent even during a severe downpour.

The Nomadic 2 also includes a built-in skylight window on the roof to make your nights even more amazing. It enhances nighttime airflow and allows you to stargaze from your bed.

Nomadic 2 Installation and Setup

People often think roof top tents are difficult to install, but that's not the case with the Nomadic 2. It is easy to install on your vehicle.

Because the Nomadic 2 has universal mounting brackets, you can install it on almost all factory and aftermarket roof racks.

Once it's on the vehicle, it is also super easy to open and close. One person can do it alone in less than 5 minutes.

Nomadic 2 FAQ

Is it possible to put this tent on my car?
Yes, the Nomadic 2 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 Nomadic 2 on your vehicle, you'll need a roof rack or a bed rack.

When it comes to set up and takedown, how long does it take?
In less than 5 minutes, you can set up and take down the Nomadic 2 roof top tent.

What's the difference between the Nomadic 2 standard and the Nomadic 2 extended?
The Nomadic 2 standard is a bit more compact and light weight. It is also slightly less expensive. The Nomadic 2 extended gives you additional open space, and the opportunity to add an annex.

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. 

What is the lifespan of a roof top tent?
The Nomadic 2 comes with a 4-year warranty, but we've found most customers never need it - the typical soft 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 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. 

How much weight can a roof top tent take? 
The weight capacity of the Nomadic 2 Roof Top Tent is 750 pounds.

What is the best two person roof top tent?
We actually wrote an extensive two-person roof top tent review article called "Best 2 Person Roof Top Tents" and the Nomadic 2 Extended came out on top as the best 2 person roof top tent. This Nomadic 2 Standard is the same tent, just a bit smaller and lighter weight. 

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 Nomadic 2) 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.

Excellent Customer Service & Tent is Amazing!

George was absolutely fantastic to work with and responded to my many questions fast. I was trying to choose the right tent, but was not 100% sure. George made it so easy. We just recently did our first trip with the OVS Nomadic and wow it is awesome. Comfortable, breathable, and compact is what we wanted. We are already going out for a second trip and love using it. Thank you!
