Sleeping on the Rooftop
Camping is an enjoyable and affordable way to enjoy nature in South Africa. Many locals prefer the serenity of the bush to the busy city life. However, to make the most of your experience in a remote location, it helps to have the right camping gear to take along on your journey. If you have a 4×4 vehicle, which most outdoor enthusiasts do, you can find a selection of rooftop tents for sale at Echo 4×4 Centre. These tents give you the freedom to camp out for the night wherever you want.
The bush has its own set of rules and challenges for campers and sometimes, it can be difficult to find a good camping location. Such a place should have sufficient open and flat areas where you can set up tents on the ground. However, you never know where you end up and it would be nice not to be limited by this consideration. So, the roof of your vehicle can be the ideal place to sleep – in a rooftop tent. We offer several types for sale to accommodate your needs.
Our Unique Approach
If you are new to this type of rooftop sleeping arrangement, see how our unique approach to these tents allows for a unique experience while enjoying the bush on your terms. If you prefer to only take your vehicle without hitching a trailer or caravan to it, this type of sleeping quarters is the ideal solution. Simply park your vehicle on level ground and set up your bedroom on top of it. The first version that we offer for sale is a standard layout that can sleep two adults. Access is gained through a ladder that reaches to the ground next to the vehicle.
Our standard rooftop tents are available in 1,3- and 1,6-m sizes to suit your needs. The smaller one can comfortably sleep two adults, with the 1,6-m version able to fit three. Only half of the floor is mounted, while the other half hangs over the side of the vehicle to allow for easier ladder access from the ground. These rooftop versions can be mounted on the front or rear end of the roof. We offer other versions for sale as well, to give you more options on how you want to use the available space on your car.
Our T-top rooftop tents are available in 1,3- and 1,6-m versions too and sleep either two or three adults. They are mounted so that the rear end projects over the back of the vehicle. Therefore, the vehicle’s roof supports the structure and a small awning is created at its rear, which can be extended to the floor to create a useful additional room. If you need a versatile solution for camping, our rooftop tents are for sale at surprisingly affordable prices.
Echo 4×4 Centre offers a large variety of outdoor equipment and trailers for sale to suit your needs.
