Extreme Weather Protection
If you've been overlanding for long, we don't have to tell you that weather can be unpredictable! It's best to be prepared for whatever Mother Nature has in store for the day.
Good news: Overland Vehicle Systems created the Nomadic 3 with this in mind, allowing 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 rain fly make up the body of this tough Nomadic 3 roof top tent.
Plus, the body canvas is highly robust, ensuring you remain comfortable and safe regardless of the weather. The built-in rainfly will keep water out of the tent during a severe downpour.
Amazing Sleeping Experience
When you're out on your adventures, getting a decent night's sleep is crucial. If you don't, you'll be exhausted all the time, which will disrupt your entire trip.
The Nomadic 3 comes with a 3" high-density memory foam mattress with a black quilted cover to let you rest and sleep like a baby. It's incredibly comfortable and a breeze to clean.
The Nomadic 3 also includes a built-in skylight window on the roof to make your nights more amazing. It enhances nighttime airflow and allows you to stargaze from your bed.
Nomadic 3 Annex (Optional)
If you require additional space, the Overland Vehicle Systems Nomadic 3 offers the option of an add-on room (AKA the Nomadic 3 annex).
The Nomadic 3 annex is comprised of 420D polyester oxford waterproof material with a removable 1000g PVC floor. It also has two windows and one huge door, all of which are made with breathable material to help with ventilation.
Overall, the Nomadic 3 annex is a fantastic addition to Nomadic 3 roof top tent! It can be used as an extra sleeping area or a separate room for changing clothes.

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 3 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.
