Extreme Weather Protection
If you've even been overlanding, you know that weather can be unpredictable! You need to be prepared for whatever Mother Nature has in store.
The good news: OVS created the Nomadic 3 with this in mind, equipping 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.
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 during a severe downpour.
Amazing Sleeping Experience
When you're out on adventures, a great night's sleep is critical.
The standard 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 easy to clean.
The Nomadic 3 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 3 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.

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?
The Nomadic 3 standard is a bit more compact and light weight. It is also slightly less expensive. The Nomadic 3 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 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 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 the Nomadic 3 Extended came out on top as the best 3 person roof top tent. This Nomadic 3 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 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. Read below for Nomadic 3 roof top tent reviews.
