If you’re thinking about using your regular car for the weekend and sleeping inside, you have a variety of options for you to consider. This article will discuss an extremely relaxing ways to camp in any vehicle that is a car tent whether it’s a roof tent, an open-air tailgate tent, or any other larger tent you can put over your tailgate. Other options for camping in your vehicle include the DIY camping conversion or a camping box (what do you mean by it?) or just putting a simple mattress in the boot using folded seats.
What kinds of tents for cars are there?
There are many varieties of an SUV/hatchback tent. Some are attached to the vehicle at the rear, others at the side, while some are on the roof, while others just cover the boot opening and do not touch the floor. Some are merely awnings that give the sun and rain protection. The most popular types of vehicle/suv tents include:
Tents for tailgates (hatchback/boot tents)
You can choose between large tents that cover the opening in the boot, and also create space behind the vehicle (freestanding) or smaller boot tents that do not meet the ground, but increase the area of the boot opening slightly and protect the area from mosquitoes or rain.
There are a lot available at Amazon however I haven’t yet tried them but they’re mostly boot covers that are only. They’re more of mosquito nets than a tent, and I don’t think I’d recommend these. There isn’t much rain cover as well as privacy or space. It is better off purchasing a standard family tent large enough to cover the whole boot (but not big enough so that there is not enough space between the opening of the boot). It is possible to put it on top of the tailgate or even the side doors.
Side door tents
You can choose between large tents that cover the boot opening and provide extra space behind the vehicle (freestanding) or smaller boot tents that do not reach the ground, they simply increase the area of the boot opening slightly and protect it from mosquitoes and rain.
How do you buy a side door or tailgate tent?
If you are camping for a long time, or if you require more space for living
In the evening, more people
(all the camping equipment including standup paddles, bicycles and so on). …)
Here are a few of the most popular tailgate tents in terms what you get for your cost:
To protect you from the sunshine as well as light rainfall, they do not offer much in the way of sleeping or extra floor space, but they do provide more shade. They usually come in three variations that are: side door, rear (boot) and side door as well as 270° (rear and side door)
Car awnings can be a great alternative if you’re staying at a camping site for a long time and you want to put them together with either a tailgate or roof tent. The roof tent/tailgate can serve as an extra storage or bedroom, and the awning can be used to create the appearance of a “lounge/dining space” kind of space. set up a table with an armchair underneath, and you’ll be comfortable in the end.
What time should you buy an awning for your car?
If you are camping for a long period, you will require more space to live in.
in the event that sun protection or rain is required
for use in conjunction with your car tent or rooftop tent
Tents for roofs, tents for cars with roofs
Make your bedroom on the top of your roof… This is a good idea If you don’t have sleeping space in the rear of your vehicle, or you require it to store things or you wish to accommodate at least two persons in a tiny car. However, you’ll need to climb up the ladder every time you want to access something from that. Ideal for sleeping (higher higher, safer and more space, plus other features, like solar-powered fans) However, it is more expensive. The less expensive ones are soft shell and the more expensive are hard-shell.
Rooftop tents are becoming more popular . You can pretty easily put them on top of any vehicle equipped using rooftop bars (rails). They fold down to form a flat roof box. Some even have a mattress included. All you need to do is put them up after putting them in place, and then throw pillows for comfort into.
Rooftop tent PROs
ideal for families with kids ideal for families with children – sleep two in the car, and the other two (or 3) in the tent’s rooftop
Higher off the ground, better views air circulation
smaller area required for camping . You can camp wherever you’re able to park your car and on level ground
prolong the duration of your trip extend the duration of your journey by packing more food, drinks and other gear in your vehicle since the boot isn’t being used to sleep.
Sleep in any car regardless of its size. If you are able to install a roof bars, you could install a roof tent the top. It is a great option if you own an automobile that is less than 170cm length of the booth (sleeping space)
easy tear-down and setup (you set up the tent’s roof only once, and then set it up in only a few minutes)
Higher up = more secure from insects and creepy crawlies
higher up = less risky from streams of water in heavy rain
A lot less expensive than a campervan, and with less maintenance
additional sleeping space to sleep in without consuming too more (10-17 percent increase, compared to 50% or more consumption when you buy an RV or towing trailer). You can also put the tent away when it’s you are not using it for a longer time.
If your tent is fitted with skylights and windows you’ll be able to take in the stars of the night and cool an evening breeze.
Rooftop tent CONs
More expensive than other tents for cars
will increase your vehicle’s fuel consumption (although not nearly as the amount as you would in the campervan)
More noise during more noise when driving (especially more acoustic when driving (especially)
Need to slow down your driving (recommended maximum speeds of 75mph, or 100kmh)
Being higher above the ground, means that being higher off the ground means you are more vulnerable to powerful winds. Rooftop tents are built to withstand wind however, be prepared for it.
the height of your car will increase the height of your car – a roof tent will increase the height of your car make sure you know the height of your car prior to going through the low tunnels and car parking.
day trips – If you are planning to take your car on a trip for the day it’s best to pack it away
What is the best time to purchase a rooftop tent?

If you require the vehicle to store (all camping gear such as standup paddles, bicycles, etc. …)
