  • Do 4x4 rooftop tents come with mattresses?

    Yes. ARB rooftop tents come with comfortable built-in mattresses that provide excellent support and insulation, ensuring a good night’s sleep no matter the weather conditions.

    Rooftop tents offer a comfortable and cozy sleeping space, complete with a high-density foam mattress. Unlike regular tents, roof-mounted tents let you enjoy a more comfortable and elevated sleeping experience away from uneven terrain, rocks, and critters. This is what makes 4×4 tents such a game changer for offroaders and campers looking for a comfortable stay in the great outdoors.

    At ARB, we have a huge range of tents, swags and awnings that will make your next outdoor adventure even more special. Explore our range and visit your nearest ARB store for more information.

  • How do I know if a 4x4 tent is compatible with my vehicle?

    Whether you’re browsing online or visiting us in-store, we can help you find the right fit for your rig. On the ARB website, choose “Select Your Vehicle” at the top right corner of the page and enter your make, model and series. Click “View Products” to view our entire range of compatible products for your ride, including rooftop tents.

    While our 4×4 tents are compatible with a huge range of vehicles, be sure to always check the load capacity of your vehicle before heading out on your next trip. Every vehicle has a different load capacity and it’s important to ensure you don’t overload your vehicle. Ensure that the combined weight of the rooftop tent, occupants, and any additional gear does not exceed this limit.

  • Do rooftop tents come with interior lights?

    Yes, depending on your tent of choice. The ARB Simpson III Rooftop Tent is equipped with interior lighting options that are both light and efficient, ensuring that power is used effectively. This setup ensures safety for campers and means you won’t have to fumble around for your torch in the night.

  • Are rooftop tents difficult to install?

    Our 4×4 rooftop tents are straightforward to set up – especially compared to regular camping tents! Each of our tents comes with a set of clear instructions. Plus, visit us in-store and our team can show you how to install your new 4×4 rooftop tent on your rack.

    After securing the tent, give it a gentle shake to ensure that it is stable and properly attached to the roof rack. Double-check that all mounting points are secure and that there is no movement or wobbling. If you notice any issues, refer to the instruction manual or consult with the manufacturer for troubleshooting tips.

    We recommend removing the tent between uses and storing it in a safe, dry place. However, you can leave the tent on your vehicle for short periods of time between uses. Just remember that the added weight will affect your fuel capacity.

  • What’s the best way to store my 4x4 rooftop tent?

    It’s important to remove your tent between uses and store it in a secure, dry place. This will help maintain the integrity of your tent and keep it in good condition for longer.

    Storing your rooftop tent in a garage or indoors is your best bet. This protects it from the elements and minimises exposure to UV rays. Before storing the tent, clean it thoroughly, ensure it is completely dry and cover it with a protective storage bag or cover to prevent dust and debris buildup.

    If indoor storage is not an option, look for a well-ventilated and covered area, such as a shed or a carport, to protect your tent from direct sunlight, rain and extreme weather. Cover it with a waterproof and breathable cover to prevent moisture accumulation.

    Regular maintenance on your rooftop tent is essential, even when stored away. Inspect the tent periodically for any signs of damage, mould or mildew. Regular maintenance will ensure that your tent is in excellent condition and ready for your next adventure.

  • Can I mount a rooftop tent on my sedan or smaller vehicle?

    While some rooftop tents can fit on sedans or smaller cars, we recommend only installing your rooftop tent on a compatible make and model. Enter your vehicle information by clicking “Select Your Vehicle” at the top right hand corner of our site to find compatible tents for your ride.

  • How do rooftop tents affect fuel consumption?

    Adding a rooftop tent to your vehicle can increase wind resistance, potentially affecting fuel consumption. The exact impact will vary depending on factors such as driving speed, terrain, and the tent’s weight. We recommend monitoring your vehicle’s fuel consumption when heading offroad to ensure you have enough fuel for each trip.

  • Are rooftop tents safe during storms or high winds?

    ARB rooftop tents are designed to withstand various weather conditions, including high winds. However, it’s important to be careful and check for severe weather events before heading out. Ensure that your tent is properly secured to the roof rack and take shelter in a more protected area if extreme weather is expected.

  • How do I clean and maintain my rooftop tent?

    Regular cleaning and maintenance are essential for the longevity and performance of your rooftop tent. We provide instructions for cleaning the tent fabric, poles, and other components with each of our rooftop tents. Always avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials that can damage the tent. Inspect the tent regularly for any signs of damage and address any issues ASAP to prevent further deterioration.
