Want to sleep in your Rev Tent on top of your vehicle but don’t have a large enough flat roof rack? Or want to sleep on your roof rack but keep some roof rack space free for storing other gear?
With the Rev Tent Platform you can use your Rev Tent for vehicle rooftop sleeping on most vehicles with cross bars or smaller flat deck roof racks.
This all-black platform is as simple as it is strong. Folds open to create a perfectly sized deck for strapping down the original size Rev Tent.
Use on any flat deck roof rack to free up additional space or to sleep in the Rev Tent off the side of the vehicle. This allows for use of the Rev Room Platform Annex for privacy while changing, showering, or going about other bathroom-themed business.
Holds up to 400 lbs.
Use along with the Rev Room Platform Annex to create an extra standing room for changing, showering, or restroom business.
Add Rev Shoe Storage bags to the platform for additional storage for shoes, sundries, flashlight, keys, toiletries...

Q: How easy is the set up?
A: Remove the ladder and Rev Tent from the platform. Attach the ladder to the platform (no tools required). Fold platform open. Pitch the tent. Attach the Rev Tent to platform with 4 Rev Straps. Should take no more than 5 minutes. And no longer than the setup of a standard soft shell roof top tent.
Q: How do I transport the tent with the platform?
A: We at C6 call the packing method the “Pancake Stack.” The ladder, stored in the ladder case, is strapped to the tent, which is in turn strapped to the platform. The Platform kit includes all the necessary Rev Straps.
Q: I’m worried I’m too short to set up the tent while its up on the vehicle.
A: You might be! Who are we to judge? You can stand on the tires and inside the vehicle with the doors open to assemble the poles, or many Rev experts choose to set up the tent on the ground and then lift it to the top of the platform. Remember, the tent only weight 25 lbs and can be easily carried by 1 person.
Q: Can I move the platform alone, or will I need help?
A: The platform weighs 48 lbs / 22 Kgs. It is not difficult for one person to lift the platform to the vehicle roof before a trip, or to remove it for storage after a trip.
Q: Can I leave the platform on the vehicle?
A: You can, but it’s not recommended. You’ll get many more years of use out of the product if it is kept out of the elements while not in use.
Before assembling your product, download and read these instructions! While you may be able to wing it, there are some important steps you have to get right for warranty coverage and FOR YOUR SAFETY!
These .pdf guides are designed to be read and referenced from a phone or tablet offline while assembling product.HANDY HINT 1: Make sure you download the file, as you may not have internet where ever you chose to assemble your product.
HANDY HINT 2: If using Acrobat Reader, read the guide in "single page mode".
WARNING: Failure to follow these instructions could result in damage to the product, your vehicle, or yourself and others. Please contact us if you are confused or concerned about any of the steps or use of this product.
We don’t recommend rolling with the tray on your vehicle full time. Although it looks sharp with its all black incognito vibe, you’ll get a longer life out of the product if you store the Rev Platform in your garage, or otherwise out of the elements when not in use.
For use with Front Runner Roof Racks, consider mounting the Rev Platform with the Front Runner Quick Release Tent Mount kit, or the Front Runner Tent Mounts. While the Rev Platform can mount directly to the rack with included hardware, using the Front Runner systems can offer easier access to the mounting hardware and quicker on and off of the Rev Platform.
For use with the Rhino Pioneer platform, you may have to drill through the slats in order to mount the Rev Tent Platform. And it’s not just us - the Rhino Rack Pioneer platform needs to be modified to work with many roof top tents. Rhino recommends drilling through their slats for roof top tent mounting and adds “due to the reinforced nylon and aluminum materials of the Pioneer Platform, there is no risk or corrosion or structural weakening.”
Some vehicles are tall. Some people are short. It may not be physically possible for you to reach all the poles to set up the tent. There is no shame in cheating by setting up the tent at ground level, and then lifting the tent on to the deck. (the tent only weighs 25 lbs). If you do this… don’t forget to STRAP THE TENT DOWN to the deck before entering! And if you’re still reading this - we can’t stress enough - strap the tent to the platform base before entering!
