Roam Desperado Hardshell Tent FAQ

Will the Roam Desperado tent fit on my vehicle?
Yes, the Desperado rooftop tent is designed to fit almost all off-road cars and trucks.

What do I need to get this roof top tent installed on my car or truck?
To mount the Roam Desperado tent on your vehicle, you'll need a roof rack or a bed rack that has cross bars (running from one side of the vehicle to the other) and that can handle the weight of the tent.

Are roof top tents too heavy?
With the right roof rack, you can mount almost any tent to almost any vehicle. Simply check the dynamic weight capacity of your roof rack and compare it to the weight of the tent. As long as the roof rack can handle the weight, you're good to go. You do not need to worry about the weight with people inside, as that's a static weight capacity which is much, much higher.

Is it safe to sleep in a roof top tent?
Roof top tents like the Roam Adventure Co Desperado Roof Top Tent are actually safer to sleep in than ground tents. They elevate you off the ground, away from animals, critters, and water. The tents are also securely fastened to the car, so you don't have to worry about being up higher.

Are hard shell roof top tents worth it?
We think all roof top tents are worth it! Hard shell roof top tents like the Desperado are heavier duty than soft shell tents. They provide extra protection from weather and generally last a few years longer than soft shell tents. But don't just take our word for it, read below for Roam Desperado tent reviews.
