Roof Tent

December 08, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

I researched roof tents last year in 2019 and almost got one then from Tent Box.

However after trawling the interweb I discovered that the same roof tent was available from various suppliers, basically the same tent from the same factory supplied by different brands.

I settled on the Direct4x4 version thats called the Clamshell 2, slightly bigger than the Tent Box Cargo and much cheaper.
I had to watch the overhang on my van as it is wider and longer than the Tent Box Cargo, the length didnt really matter on my LWB van.

I built a small shelf that basically sits on the roller accessory that came with the Kammbar roof rack.
So the roof tent sits on x4 bars on the roof rack, is slimline compared to others on the market and so quick to erect and fold down.

Looking forward to getting out more next year on our paddle boarding adventures and ultimately doing the NC500 and the Wales Way.
