Camp in style and comfort; no clearing ground or sleeping on rocks and roots. The hottest thing in camping is Seattle-based Dog House Rooftop Tents and Trailers—simply stow on your vehicle’s roof and off you go.
The Summit 3 Series 3-season model compacts down neatly on your car’s roof and can comfortably sleep 2-3 people with its 56”x 96” footprint when it’s open. The Summit’s ripstop 600 Denier poly/cotton canvas fabric is covered with a water-resistant and UV coating, comes with a non-deforming sponge mattress, and includes a built-in mosquito screen.
Hardware includes a telescoping ladder, sturdy 5/8” aluminum tubing, and a heavy-duty travel cover. Summit Series 3 weighs 130 pounds and is priced at $999.99.
Dog House also sells larger tents sleeping up to five people in soft and hard shells, overland hitched trailers, and tent annexes. Doghousetentsus.com
