With warm weather finally upon us (and social distancing orders that closed campgrounds and parks beginning to lift), it’s only natural that people’s thoughts should turn to camping. Getting out of the house and sleeping in the great outdoors sounds utterly delightful after a long winter, a cold spring and a global pandemic that’s pushed people into their homes for weeks on end.
Of course, while you could just throw a tent down on the cold, hard ground…wouldn’t you really rather treat yourself to a slightly more elevated camping experience with a rooftop tent for your vehicle?
A folding tent mounted atop your SUV, minivan, station wagon or truck keeps you out of any moisture that might come your way down on terra firma, as well as away from any passing critters that might otherwise choose to wander in. The Yakima Skyrise rooftop tent builds on those basic functions by adding an integrated foam mattress, as well as a sturdy drop-down aluminum ladder for easy entry and exit. There’s a skylight among the mesh windows for when the skies are clear, and a PU-coated fly to guard off the rain when they’re not. Plus, it mounts without tools and compresses down to a compact package when it’s time to hit the road.
Best of all, while this Yakima normally costs you around $1,100, it’s 20 percent off right now, making it easier than ever to add a rooftop tent to your camping gear portfolio. Why wouldn’t you snag it?
