FAQs

Will a TentBox work with my vehicle?

There is a TentBox model to fit almost any vehicle - aside from the odd exception like convertibles and smart cars.

You just need a set of roof bars, which you can get for any vehicle.

Our quick guide is a really helpful place to get started, but if you need more help, please reach out to our team of product specialists.

Is a TentBox easy to install?

Yes, a TentBox is really easy to install and should take no longer than 30 minutes.

All you need are a set of good quality roof bars. Everything else comes in the box.

During the installation, you'll need an extra pair of hands to help lift your TentBox onto your roof bars,. After that it’s just a case of sliding in some brackets and tightening 8 nuts.

Our product specialists are always ready to help, or you can look at our quick guide to roof tents.

What are the benefits of a TentBox vs. a ground tent?

Despite the name, a TentBox is more of a sleeping pod than a tent, and it’s just one step away from a campervan. You can sleep anywhere you can park your car, including on hard surfaces like car parks or driveways, and don’t need to look for a flat grassy pitch.

They are also super quick to set up and come fitted with a mattress; depending on the model you choose, you can also leave your bedding laid out inside when driving so that it’s already made for you when you pop it open. 

Being high off the ground makes not only for amazing elevated views from the windows but also means you are well away from the cold, wet mud and creepy crawlies. The natural air barrier between the TentBox and the car roof acts as an insulation barrier and means you stay warmer as the heat is not sucked into the ground. 

You can leave a TentBox on your car all year round, which means you are ready for spontaneous adventures at the drop of a hat. Whether that be a  weekend away at a campsite after a long week at work, or sleeping on a friend's driveway after a dinner party, everything is possible once you have a TentBox.

After the initial investment, it’s a super cost-effective way to travel as there are tonnes of free places to park up for the night, and campsites are far cheaper than hotels.

Is a TentBox warm and weatherproof?

We’ve built all of our TentBox models to be stormproof; you will have no issues in even the harshest conditions, should you choose to go out in them! This is due to our high-performance fabrics and construction quality.

As for warmth, a TentBox is naturally insulated as it is raised away from the ground, with an insulating air barrier. The foam mattress also adds a layer of protection, but a warm sleeping bag is advisable for colder temperatures. We’ve had TentBoxers adventuring to the arctic circle, and the feedback was great.

Will it fit a tall person who is over 6ft?

Yes! All of our TentBox models are over 7ft in length.

If you want even more space, take a look at our Lite XL which has a sleeping footprint that is almost 8ft long.

Is a TentBox easy to use, even with 1-person?

Absolutely, all of our TentBoxes have been designed to be super-easy to set up.

It only takes one person to open and close any of our TentBox models.

Please note, if you are short you may want to take a collapsible step ladder with you to help you reach the closing buckles etc. when you are opening or closing your TentBox.

The only time you'll need 2 people is when you first install it, in order to lift it onto your roof bars.

Can I keep a TentBox on my car all year round?

You can absolutely keep a TentBox on your vehicle all year round - lots of people do, and this is what it is designed for!

The beauty of a TentBox is the instant, spontaneous adventure that it enables, so having it there ready to go is a big part of this.

However, if you do want to take it off (say during winter), that’s cool too. It can be stored on its side in a cool, dry place - just make sure to dry it out before storage.

Can I finance my TentBox purchase?

Absolutely, we have a whole range of finance options and many of them are 0% interest-free.
