Accompanying the tent is a plush mattress, 6 cm thick, made from high-density foam, ensuring optimum comfort. Furthermore, the tent cover is fashioned from a washable, moisture-resistant, and mildew-resistant polyester fabric known as Oxford, guaranteeing long-term durability.
What is so special about it?
Without a doubt, one of the most remarkable features of this roof-top tent is the unparalleled panoramic view it offers. With windows on all four sides, each equipped with adjustable skylights, we have the luxury of opening or closing them to enjoy a breath of fresh air, bask in the warm sunlight, or simply marvel at the expansive sky above. Moreover, every window and door comes with reliable locks, allowing us to customize the size of the opening to cater to our privacy preferences or adapt to varying weather conditions. Inside the tent, we are delighted to find two spacious hanging pockets measuring 34 cm x 22 cm, providing ample room for our personal belongings such as tablets, books, and phones. Additionally, the entrance area offers extra storage space, accommodating larger items within the tent itself. Now, the question arises: how do we enter this splendid abode? Fear not, for we are equipped with an extendable, sturdy aluminum ladder, ensuring easy access and ensuring our safety at all times.
