OVS Sidewinder Roof Top Tent FAQ
How do I know if my car can handle a roof top tent?
The Sidewinder works with the vast majority of cars and trucks. You just need a roof rack or bed rack with crossbars (that run from one side of the car to the other) and that can handle the weight of the tent. Don't worry about the weight of the campers and other equipment - it's only the dynamic weight (when the car is moving, so you're not in the tent) that you need to focus on.
What do I need to install this roof top tent on my car or truck?
You'll need a roof rack or a bed rack with crossbars to mount the Sidewinder to your vehicle.
How long does it take to set up and take down the OVS Sidewinder?
The Sidewinder can be set up or taken down in a lightning fast 30 seconds.
How many people can the Overland Vehicle Systems Sidewinder tent sleep?
It is a 2-3 person tent.
Are car roof top tents safe?
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.
Do roof top tents get moldy?
With normal cleaning and storage - no. The Sidewinder's anti-condensation mat also helps prevent any type of mold. Feel free to reach out to us for tips and tricks!
How do you keep a roof top tent cool?
We could give you use tips for days, so please reach out with this or any other questions! Quick pro tips: Always close the windows and doors when you're not in the tent to minimize sun getting in. Take advantage of those same windows and doors when you're in the tent, to maximize airflow. And park in shady spots whenever possible.
How long do roof top tents last?
The typical soft shell roof top tent lasts 5-10 years. The typical hard shell roof top tent, like the Sidewinder, will get you even longer under normal use. The Sidewinder comes with a 4-year warranty, but we've found most customers never need it.
Are hard-shell roof top tents worth it?
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 Sidewinder) home traveling with you wherever you go that's convenient to set up and fun for the whole family. Hard shell tents in particular are worth it because they provide even more insulation from the elements, more comfort, and more lifespan. An investment you will not regret!
