How TentBox Works
This video explains everything you need to know to get started with TentBox
Step 1: Getting roof bars for your vehicle
You can get roof bars for any vehicle, even if there are no obvious fixing points!
There are 3 roof types, as shown below. Your vehicle will have one of these, and there will be bars to fit.
Where can I get roof bars from?
We recommend using Auto Anything to source Roof Bars for your vehicle.
Auto Anything have a great online service for finding the right bars for your vehicle, and great customer service if you would prefer to call them. They also operate across the entire USA.

Step 2: Vehicle suitability
There is a TentBox model for every car. The main consideration is your vehicle roof load capacity.
You can find your vehicle roof load capacity in your vehicle manual, or by contacting our team
The roof load capacity of your vehicle must be greater than the weight of the TentBox you’re putting on top.
By the way… a common misconception around roof loads:
Your listed vehicle roof load limit is for a dynamic load, which means the maximum recommended roof load whilst the vehicle is being driven. When your vehicle is stationary, your vehicle can take 5x more load weight - this is called the static load.
In other words, there is no need to worry about the added weight of people inside your TentBox, as they will only be inside when your vehicle is stationary!
There are a lot more forces applied on a vehicle whilst it’s being driven (breaking, turning, hitting bumps in the road), which is why there is such a big difference between the dynamic and static loads.
Contact us if you would like help with your vehicle roof load.
Step 3: Choosing your TentBox
With three models to choose from, working out which TentBox is right for you can be a little confusing. That's why we put together our handy comparison table to show all features side by side.
