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.

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 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Is it possible to put this tent on my car?
Yes, the Nomadic 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 Nomadic 3 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 3 roof top tent.

What's the difference between the Nomadic 3 standard and the Nomadic 3 extended?
Not only does the Nomadic 3 extended give you additional open space without being any larger when closed, it also gives you the opportunity to add an annex.

What exactly is an Annex?
An annex is an optional accessory you can add to your Nomadic 3 Extended Roof Top Tent. It's a small private room that you can use for changing clothes or as an extra sleeping space.

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. 

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 3 Extended Roof Top Tent is 850 pounds.

What is the best three person roof top tent?
We actually wrote an extensive three-person roof top tent review article called "Best 3 Person Roof Top Tents" and this one - the Nomadic 3 Extended - came out on top as the best 3 person roof top tent.  

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 3) 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.

Perfect for a Road Trip

Like anything, using is learning. Took a couple nights to learn some tricks, by 3rd night it only took 15 minutes to set up and that's including inflating the air mattress, for me a air mattress is a good idea made sleeping so much more comfortable. After 10 days on the Road Trip to Mount Rushmore and Zion National Park, I am a very happy camper, literally....LOL

Get the annex

Love this tent, and love the annex. So glad we got it - great extra storage space out of the elements. Decided between this and Roam Vagabond but Roam never responded to me on a few questions, so did this one and not regretting it at all

Great Quality

The tent overall has been great in clear weather. Have not had a chance to take it out in the rain. Once the tent is mounted to your vehicle it is very easy to put up and take down. Placing the mounting tracks to the actual tent was a pain and time consuming. The mounting plates that came with the OVS Nomadic 3 Extended tent were 4 inches wide. The rails on my bed rack were wider than the mounting plates. I contacted OVS directly and they hooked me up with the proper hardware to secure the tent. They were professional and very helpful. I will say that the directions that come with the tent are helpful but need to be a bit more descriptive. I had to utilize YouTube for help. Overall I love the tent and quality. I would definitely buy again.

Bad shipping

Shipping company destroyed my tent which ****** and made me angry enough to knock a star off. But really, they helped me get a new tent fast and it's great, so overall good experience
