We’ve all apparent these rooftop tents amphibian through magazines and the interwebs, but not abounding of us accept absolutely apparent them out in the wild, so I was appealing aflame aback Tepui Tents out of Santa Cruz, California, was accommodating to accelerate us their 3-person Kukenam SKY for review. Arriving in backward April, it served as the weekend roost for the aboriginal two months and again sporadically throughout the summer months.

Installation:On paper, antecedent bureaucracy seemed straightforward, actuate the tent’s admission point (i.e., driver’s side, commuter ancillary or the rear of the vehicle) and attach the ascent balustrade and ladder to the abject accordingly. Next, a additional set of calmly is appropriate to elevate the covering assimilate the vehicle’s amount bars. The ascent arrangement consists of two advanced and two rear collapsed brackets that are anchored by a brace of bolts, sandwiching the vehicle’s amount confined amid the brackets and the base. This simple architecture works able-bodied with all types of amount confined whether round, aboveboard or aero.

We installed the covering anon to the branch amount confined of a Subaru Outback. The amount confined accept a activating amount accommodation of 165 pounds, which is the weight absolute at which the agent can cautiously cruise bottomward the artery while loaded. With the Tepui covering belief about 130 pounds, we are cautiously beneath the max accommodation and acceptable to go.

The Outback branch roof balustrade additionally accepted to be a huge PITA aback abbreviating the ascent accouterments which added about an added hour of bureaucracy time due to the specific vehicle. Thankfully, Tepui included a ratcheting bend in the kit. Vehicles that use an aftermarket amount bar arrangement should accept no problems accomplishing a 30-45 minute install time.

Construction:The Kukenam SKY covering is complete of abiding canvas with a waterproof coating. Four ancillary panels and two roof panels accept absolutely zippered mosquito screens, which can serve as admission ports and additionally accommodate abounding airflow aural the tent. For the sides, Tepui added a dual-closure system. The exoteric canvas covering can be battened down, and an autogenous canvas cease can be ambiguous up aback mother attributes tests your limits. The disposable rain fly is a polyurethane coated polyester that extends over the advanced and rear of the tent. The 3-inch gap amid the covering and rainfly helps adapt the temperature inside. It can additionally be calmly removed/installed with six buckles.

Inside, a 2 ½-inch cream sleeping pad is included, accouterment a sleeping brand of 56 by 96 inches. For comparison, your accepted Queen admeasurement bed is 60 by 80. As for headroom, the centermost is 46 inches and drops bottomward to 34 inches to the advanced and rear, alms affluence of allowance for two to calmly sit and comedy some arrangement of poker.

Overall Thoughts:Tepui’s rooftop covering is absolute for the alone who about finds themselves traveling to alien locations and needs to set up affected during their adventures. Abounding will cramp at the amount of the Kukenam SKY, and at aloof beneath $1,400, there is no abstinent it’s an big-ticket tent. However, the telescoping aluminum ladder, cloistral fiberglass abject and the canopy’s skeleton arrangement that ancestor accessible with affluence are all well-crafted and optimized to accumulate the weight of the covering as basal as possible.

However, there are a few places area the Tepui avalanche short. The covering didn’t leak, but there were tiny pin holes about a few seams. After contacting Tepui, they said the covering was abnormal and bound beatific a Kukenam SKY Ruggedized covering for replacement. The ruggedized covering has a hardly thicker canvas and four centralized backing pockets on the inside. Unfortunately, one of these backing pockets was sewn upside bottomward authoritative it useless. I brought up the affection ascendancy issues to John Griffith, sales and business administrator at Tepui, and he mentioned that in 2019 they will accept full-time affection ascendancy cadre auditing the Tepui factories to abate added affection issues such as these.

Sleeping in the covering was pleasant, behindhand of the acclimate outside. The covering remained balmy and dry during the bounce showers and aerial aback temperatures became hot and humid. If you get a bright night, the SKY panels can be opened and the rainfly removed alms a starlit sky to abatement comatose to. However, the SKY console zippers are not waterproof, so unless you are 100 percent assertive a accidental storm is not rolling in, I’d advance alone folding aback bisected the rainfly.

So, what if you accept to pee in the average of the night? Don’t be lazy, it’s not that difficult. If you can clamber out of your bed and airing to the bath in the average of the night at home, again you absolutely are able of unzipping the covering and ample bottomward a brace steps.

The added time I spent application the tent, the beneath I capital to go aback to sleeping on the arena or in a hammock. Sure, tents, hammocks and your own car all assignment altogether fine; there is no abstinent that fact. But, it’s like comparing backtalk meat from a country abundance in the average of West Virginia to what you can acquisition at an beach restaurant in Delaware. The Tepui rooftop covering is beeline luxury, and I am in no blitz to booty this off my car.
