RoofLodge EXO – 2nd place in the Explorer Magazine roof tent test 2018. Top rating and maximum score for the setup time an amazing 1:40 minutes (= 100 seconds)!
Meaning: Éxō (Greek) = outside
This roof tent is perfect for SUVs and smaller vehicles thanks to its low weight and adapted awning. The awning has a mounting height of between 1.80 and 2.10 metres. This is the latest offering from Nakatanenga – a quality German 4×4 company.
Just what makes this different from other roof tents?
EXO:The robust frame is located outside the roof tent. The tent skin is attached to the top of the poles.
TOOL-FREE ASSEMBLY: The roof tent is attached to the roof rack via a shaped bracket with plastic coating and toggle screws – so no tools are needed and there is no metal on metal.
FAST CONSTRUCTION:Open, remove the ladder, extend the canopy – that’s it!
In the comprehensive roof tent test 2018 carried out by EXPLORER magazine, the RoofLodge EXO roof tent achieved the lowest erection time of 1:40 minutes (= 100 seconds).
STORAGE BIN:Two hanging outside pockets for shoes and the like and two compartments in the roof tent for valuables.
VENTILATION SYSTEM: Inside two breathable cotton surfaces on the headliner to reduce condensation.
RAINPROOF WITH GOOD VISIBILITY: Water-repellent awning with transparent plastic window.
EXCELLENT INSULATION WITHOUT SOLID FLOOR: Directly above the slatted frame is a hard 50mm thermo mattress, but so that you can still sleep comfortably, there is a soft 35mm topper above the thermo mattress!
