Now that summer’s just around the bend, it’s time to start thinking about making the most of your weekends again. But, if your idea of car camping is heading for the nearest KOA with a Honda Civic jammed full of Sports Authority clearance rack tents, it might just be time to rethink your strategy. Instead, pop a Tepui tent from the Santa Cruz, CA-based company, onto your classic Toyota FJ40, Range Rover or daily driver (in this case, a pick-up), and transform it into the ultimate adventure base camp in mere minutes.
With four different models to choose from, Tepui’s line of aluminum frame tents comes complete with an aluminum insulated base, high-density foam mattress, waterproof and ventilated walls and an 8 ft telescoping aluminum ladder for gaining access to your perch. The tents easily mount directly to your roof rack or aftermarket roof bars, store easily when not in use and set up in a snap. Ranging in space from a 4-person model (the Gran Sabana) all the way down to a 2-man version (the Ayer), your only challenge will be finding a perfect beach break, old growth forest or pristine river site for you and your cohorts.
