FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
In this sections you find answers to the frequently asked questions about „ INFLATABLE ROOF TOP TENTS“. If you don’t find the answer to your question, just contact us per email!
Q1: How much pressure does the roof top tent need?
A1: The base of the roof top tent made of Drop-Stitch requires a pressure of 7 to 8 PSI (0.6 to 0.8 Bar). The ideal air pressure in the air tube tent system is between 2 to 3 PSI (0.2 to 0.3 Bar).
Q2: Is the roof top tent suitable for winter use?
A2: The materials used make the roof top tent suitable for winter use. The included outer cover increases the heat and weather protection.
It is recommended to remove it at regular intervals in case of snowfall. The breathable material, which transports moisture from the inside of the tent to the outside, has proven to be very positive in winter. However, the tent interior must be expected to cool down in very cold temperatures. Heating is possible.
Q3: Do I need a mattress or is it integrated in the tent?
A3: There is no mattress integrated in the tent. The Drop-Stitch roof top tent base is very hard due to the required stability and the use of an additional camping mat is explicitly recommended. GentleTent offers a suitable inflatable solution with the GT Mattress.
Q4: Can sleeping bags, blankets, camping mats remain in the roof top tent when it is packed?
A4: The roof top tent must be empty when dismantling so that the sleeping platform can be folded properly. There is a small space under the protective tarpaulin to store camping mats or blankets additionally. To have this space available, the roof top tent must be well ventilated when packing.
Additionally, the answer depends on the volume of the blankets, sleeping bags and camping mats.
Q5: Is there an awning for the roof top tent?
A5: There is an awning for the roof top tent, which can be ordered as an additional accessory. This is mounted in the entrance area with a zip fastener.
Q6: How is the roof top tent mounted on the vehicle roof?
A6: The roof top tent has an aluminium frame on the underside, which is mounted to the roof racks of the vehicle at four points using the universal mounting set.
This means that in order to mount a roof top tent, you will need roof bars attached on the roof of your vehicle.
Q7: What about condensation on the roof top tent?
A7: The tent fabric used for the roof tent is a polyester-cotton blend (= polycotton). This prevents condensation due to its breathability. It also helps to prevent water condensation by providing good ventilation inside the tent.
Furthermore, the roof top tent can be made double-walled by using the outer cover included in the scope of delivery. In extreme weather situations the outer cover provides rear ventilation and maintains the breathability of the inner polycotton material.
Q8: What does the permissible roof load mean?
A8: The permissible (dynamic) roof load indicates how much weight the vehicle roof may be loaded without endangering road safety while driving. The sum of the roof tent, roof rack and other loads must not exceed the permissible roof load. More information can be found in the blog post: Permissible roof load: What you need to know.
Q9: Does the roof top tent have an anti-theft device?
A9: No, we do not offer theft protection.
Q10: Can the air system of the roof top tent be repaired?
A10: The tent system has a "tube-in-tube system", similar to a bicycle tube. The protective sheathing is made of robust Double Ripstop PES material with the TPU tube inside.
The inner tube can be pulled out through service openings, repaired with tape or replaced.
If the lying platform is damaged, it can be glued with commercially available special adhesive and the repair patches supplied.
Due to its robustness, however, damage is extremely unlikely.
Q11: Where is the ladder stowed or is it included in the packing size?
A11: The telescopic ladder is folded and is included in the packing size. However, we recommend transporting the ladder in the boot, especially for tall vehicles, so that it is available immediately for assembly.
