Rooftop Tents - Hard Shell

Tough Touring continues to test and stock Australia's largest range of hard-shell roof-top tents. If a new tent meets our standards - we stock it.

Tents stocked are chosen on the basis of excellent qualities in relation to the below criteria:

  • Performance in the elements - wind, rain, humidity, heat

  • Airflow and condensation resistance

  • Durability

  • Quality of finish

  • Comfort

  • Ease of use (set-up and pack down)

  • Weight

  • Price vs value

  • Versatility (can handle awnings, roof loads, solar fitting)

Our scores were given on performance in the following conditions:

  • Extreme wind (over 40 km/h)

  • Rain 

  • Extreme heat

  • Extreme cold (For Australia temperatures of -5 to zero degrees Celsius)

  • Adaptability to other touring accessories such as awnings and solar

  • Roof load carrying capabilities

  • Ease of use, set up and pack down

  • Interior finish, vibe, internal storage

  • Airflow and cross ventilation

  • Mattress comfort, resistance to humidity

  • Overall cosmetic appeal on vehicle

We have generated a 'scoreboard' of sorts which is basically a document listing the differing attributes of the different manufacturer's strengths. It is true that the 'best tent' will vary from individual to individual based on which attributes are important (or more important) than others.
