iKamper SkyCamp 2.0 Roof Top Tent Expert Reviews

Outside Magazine says:

“The expandable SkyCamp clamshells opens, with the top forming an angled section of roof/wall and the bottom the platform for the mattress. The tent that pops out of the hardshell is a weatherproof durable polyester-canvas blend that keeps the outside world out.

The comfy mattress is big enough for a family of four or three adults, so bring buddies. This iKamper also comes with locks installed and has an insulated bottom to help keep you warm.”

North Outdoors says:

“The Skycamp II is a hardshell tent that, amazingly, sleeps up to four people.  If you are talking full-growth adults who want space and comfort, two or three might be a better number.

The company boasts that it has a 1-minute setup, and when we tested it, we found that a minute was feasible once you had a little practice.

If you are actually setting it up to stay in it, installing all of the awning supports and getting it just right, plant on 3-5 minutes to have it ready to roll.”

Off-Road.com says:

“iKamper has also built an RTT that slips through the wind on interstates and through branches atop your rig. Its construction is taut, sheds wind and moisture, and blocks out morning light to help you oversleep.

Though not the most well-appointed mattress, its interior is spacious and, with the world map, the most attractive on the market.

Despite its smaller overhead protection when standing under the flip open floor, the optional Awning and Annex give owners the option to easily expand on-the-ground shelter to their liking.”

Mountain IQ says:

“Although a fantastic rooftop tent, it does not come without its flaws. There are many ways to mount the tent onto your car, but each way can be quite tricky.

The size of the tent is also an issue when it comes to storage when it’s not in use. Finally the tent is expensive compared to other tents on the market.

If you are planning to purchase the tent, be sure it’s going to be something you are going to use often and enjoy, otherwise it could be better to purchase a cheaper rooftop tent.”
