About Femkes Rooftop Tents

Designing and testing products

The process involved in designing the roof tents has been fine tuned over the years. The Femkes team travel to their manufacturer 2-3 times a year to discuss designs, changes & improvements to ensure great quality control and close relationships at factories.

Once changes are made the sample is rigorously tested in Holland as only experienced roof tent campers know how to. Thanks to Femke & Tim being involved in every phase of production they have created a large range of hard shell roof tents with their stamp of approval.

With the customer always in mind

Femkes are always seeking honest feedback on quality and comfort as they strive to make the very best roof tents.

Also, to save costs to the customer they decided to make sure all of their roof tents come 3d mesh, shoe bags & accessory bags and tarps included to make sure campers have the most practical accessories and convenience on their adventures.

Rooftop Tent Frequently Asked Questions

What are the requirements for a Rooftop Tent? Show Item Content

Camping with a Rooftop Tent does require a few things to be set up:

1. You need a set roof bars or roof racks for your 4x4 or car that fit your vehicle

2. These roof bars / racks need a large enough weight limit to take the weight of your chosen rooftop tent

3. Check the dynamic weight limit of your vehicle is greater than the weight of the rooftop tent plus your roof bars.

Then you're all set to go on your adventure

Are Rooftop Tents warm? Show Item Content

In general, rooftop tents are warmer than traditional tents.

There are a few reasons why they are warmer than traditional tents but we do advise additional cold protection like inner tent insulation for the cold winter months.

What makes them warmer than traditional tents?

1. Elevation - Getting away from the cold ground will increase the warmth in the tent

2. Thicker materials - especially hard-shell rooftop tents are made of more durable and thicker materials which are better at retaining heat.

3. Some rooftop tents are designed for better insulation keeping you cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter days with your body heat.

How can you store your Rooftop Tent? Show Item Content

Consider storing your rooftop tent away in your garage or storage space when you will not use it for long periods.

You can store your rooftop tent on top of your vehicle all year round.

We think you should consider a few things if you want to this:

1. Protect it from the rain by using a extra water resistant PVC cover

2. Factor in the extra fuel usage by carrying the rooftop tent on your vehicle all year round

3. Risk of theft. Add extra security bolts or get your rooftop tent insured for peace of mind

What do I need to know about Weight Limits? Show Item Content

The main weight limit we need to consider is the dynamic weight limit of your vehicle.

You’ll want to take a look at your car’s manual for the weight limit when choosing tents for the top of your car.

Dynamic weight

Dynamic weight is simply the amount of weight you can have on your car while it’s in motion. Basically how the forces affect it from all directions while driving.

Static Weight

Static weight is just the amount of weight your car can carry while standing still; this includes your gear and passengers.

As long as the roof bars plus the rooftop tent in total are less than the dynamic weight limit of your vehicle then you're set!

Does a rooftop tent affect my mileage? Show Item Content

Yes a rooftop tent will decrease your mileage due to the added weight and drag from the wind.

By how much it is difficult to estimate and depends on two main factors:

1. The weight of the rooftop tent

2. How bulky the rooftop tent is when closed causing wind resistance

To reduce the impact on mileage choose a rooftop tent that is lighter than 65kg and has a slimeline frame when closed.
