This is an upgrade i’ve been very excited about… A rooftop tent from Roam Adventure Co!!
Most of you know, i am not the Overlanding type of guy. However, i have always found rooftop tents pretty cool!
Cassie and I decided that adding a Rooftop tent to our Jeep Gladiator would be a great idea to see what the hype is about, and possibly start working our way into “Overlanding adventures”. More on that topic and our plans later…
In this video, we are installing the Roam Vagabond tent. You can check out the specs in the link below:
I mounted this tent to my home made rack system over my DiamondBack bed cover:
We decided on this tent for a few reasons. We wanted something that had great quality, however we didnt want to spend $3,000 on a tent without knowing if it would be something we would use very often. I didnt want to cheap out and get a low quality tent, knowing that it could be something that we will enjoy and later have regrets of getting a budget tent.
I also wanted to find a tent that was big enough for the family, while still being lightweight and small enough to fit over the the Jeep Gladiator bed.
This tent weighs in at 130lbs, and feels incredibly large inside for being a standard sized tent.
Roam also offers the Vagabond XL, and the Lite, depending on your needs.
While i am not too well versed on RTTs, i did alot of research and found this tent to be one of the best “bang for your buck”, it has alot of useful features, and seems to be made with very high quality.
We are planning some trips soon, that way we can test it out and make some further review videos for you guys. We are also going to take a realistic approach on how to get into “Overlanding” and our journey along the way.
There are 1000s of “Overlanding experts” out there, but i want to show you guys a realistic way to get into it, without saying “You need this”, because honestly everyone’s needs are different, and sometimes its best to learn along the way.
I hope you enjoyed the video, and i am looking forward to showing you all what we have in store!
I would appreciate any tips and tricks for RTTs that you have learned along the way.
So far, this is the first thing i have purchased in relation to the tent;
