We are used to the hard shell opening up to form a shield from elements but we have not seen one that opens and acts as an awning. It will protect you both in ad out. For comfort, you have a 5 cm mattress with a washable cover.

XTLLY Hard Shell Roof Tent Big Space, Outdoor Waterproof Offroad Camping 2-3 Person Pop Up Vehicle 


Open dimensions: 160 x 205 x 130cm | Closed dimensions: 175 x 130 x 37cm | Weight: 64.2kg/76.1kg | Shell Material: ABS

Capacity: Two adults, two children, or three adults

Style: Fold out

This is another model of the pop-up hard shell car roof tent. The difference is that it can accommodate three adults or a family of two adults and two children. 

Such a model will require a bigger vehicle, especially if you have a large family. This is because you would like a vehicle and roof rack that can comfortably take the length and weight of this roof tent. Therefore, the SUV, truck or van are highly recommended.  

Don’t worry about the shell falling back as it’s supported by aluminium rods and a solid base. The windows are covered with a mesh cloth to protect you from external insects and bugs as you increase airflow.

If you want to extend the cover beyond what you have for the roof tent, zippers and Velcro are attached to the tent to enable you to make more room as storage or change room while you enjoy your camping experience.

Pros and cons of the TentBox classic roof tent

  • It has a thick and comfortable mattress
  • It has a very quick setup time
  • It is spacious for putting beddings and the ladder
  • You can buy in instalments
  • It has a 5-year warranty
  • It is heavier, which can affect fuel consumption

When you want comfort on wheels, this is the tent you go for.  It is made of a durable base of aluminium and a shell made of quality ABS which makes it lightweight and durable. The rest of the body is made of canvas.

The beddings can be stored inside meaning the bed will be ready at a moment’s notice. An inbuilt mattress completes your need for super-comfortable sleep which can be topped with a memory foam topper which you always buy separately.

As much as it can fit on any vehicle, it is long and its wideness makes it perfect for the defender. In just 60 seconds, you have your setup and are ready to sleep. This is made possible by the gas struts which after unbuckling the latches, you just push the shell upwards and the tent is made.

The inside of the tent has also been accessorised with pockets which add storage for your equipment. The windows are layered with a mesh to screen out bugs and ensure continuous aeration.

The shell is made to withstand elements as well as the shape which is aerodynamic. If you dream of a better TentBox for your land rover defender, this is the roof tent to have.

Pros & CoPros and cons of the Land Rover Autohome tentns

  • The tent is made from high quality materials
  • It opens very fast because of the struts
  • It is long giving you plenty of space
  • The tent is well ventilated
  • Privacy mesh- you can see from inside out not from outside in
  • It is pricey
  • It has its official roof rack

The Land Rover Autohome tent has been made to be of the highest quality and to provide the fastest way to put up a tent. Releasing the clasps promptly unhinges the struts which instantly pull up the tent.

Get your defender a roof rack

The roof of the shell is insulated from heat and sound making sure that your sleep will never be interrupted. The fabric that makes the body is light but is tear-proof and weatherproof too.

The three windows which can serve as doors too are layered with a fine mesh which can be rolled down as needed. The mesh serves as a privacy shield from the outside and to keep away bugs too.

For the extra equipment and accessories, you will get a large elastic roof net and storage pockets on each side. Another feature which makes the Autohome roof tent formidable is the LED bulbs which come with a 12-volt battery which is included in the package deal.

A high-density crash-proof mattress with two pillows is what will make your sleep magical. The mattress and pillow covers are washable. If this is not what you have been looking for, then I don’t know what is. Please note before purchase that the tent must be mounted on the roof rack of the official expedition roof.
