What is the Maverick Hard Shell Roof Top Tent?

The Maverick Hard Shell Roof Top Tent is a clamshell-type model which is easy to set up whenever you are on your overland trip. It has been fitted with a gas-assisted strut which helps open the tent.

Why choose the Maverick Hard Shell Roof Top Tent

The Maverick Hard Shell Roof Top Tent is a popular choice. It’s quick to set up and has great mobility due to only weight. You’ll have your rooftop tent up within 5 minutes, which will be helpful when you’re on the go. In addition, this tent comes with a rainfly that shields it from heavy storms or snow.

A mesh roof makes this tent perfect for hot season camping. In addition, the Maverick Hard Shell Roof Top Tent is durable with a one-piece design, making it easy to set up and transport.

With mesh side panels, this tent is great for those who like to keep an eye on the scenery without exposing themselves to the elements. If a weekend or short backpacking trip is what you’re after, this tent may be right up your alley: it’s both lightweight and easy to transport.

Features

The Maverick Hard Shell Roof Top Tent has many features that make it awesome.

The mattress is made of high-density foam, providing a good night’s sleep. It has generous side windows for ventilation, which keeps the room cool even when it’s hot outside. If you enjoy the fresh air and don’t want to deal with bugs, try this ten with a high-quality mesh screen at the windows and door!

You’ve invested a lot of money and time into your car tent. The aluminium hard shell covers protect your belongings, and the tent’s inside while travelling. However, you never know what the weather will be like, so it’s much better to take precautions than risk getting caught unprepared.

This telescopic ladder extends up to 2 meters, making it perfect for outdoor use. It’s strong, lightweight and folds up easily when not in use, so you can store it quickly right after use. In addition, it is attached to the tent’s base for easy access to either of the three openings.

The tent has pockets for storage inside and a huge latch which secures the tent while on the move. The condensation mat secures the tent from the build-up of mould.

Setting up and installation of the Maverick Hard Shell Roof Top Tent

Setting up your Maverick Hard Shell Roof Top Tent will not be a problem since it comes with the mounting kit and instructions on installing it. Maybe you will need a buddy to assist you in lifting, but after that, it’s smooth.

Check the roof load capacity of the vehicle you will be using. For example, we have seen that this tent is 65 kg meaning a vehicle must exceed it by at least 25 kgs on its capacity; otherwise, the best way to experience this tent is using a 4 ×4, which carries it comfortably.

After hoisting it and securing the tent, unclasp the latches and push the roof upwards, which, with the help of the gas struts, will open up without any hustle. Then secure the canvas over the door with the rods provided, and the tent is ready. The only thing left is hooking up the ladder onto any side of the three points provided, and you are done.

The pack-up process is simple and opposite, except you have to be careful not to damage the canvas or the zippers. This process can be tricky at times, but after you get the hang of it, you realise it was simple all along.

Final thoughts

The Maverick Hard Shell Roof Top Tent has been made by people who know about camping and have been doing it for years. The tent was not introduced so long ago after a series of building off-road camper trailers.

This model is built to last, as seen in the emphasis on building using aluminium. You don’t expect that they build off-road camper trailers and miss on building the best rooftop tent.

We are sure that this as an addition to your vehicle’s rack makes it stand out and takes your adventure to a new level.
