REV TENT press release 5-2023

-  For Immediate Release  -

Malibu, CA, May 22, 2023 -  

 

Overland and on land - The Rev Tent is an elevation revelation.

What do all the popular tent designs have in common?  Everything!  All the tents are more or less the same.  Roof top tent design has not changed in over 70 years since the first roof top tents were patented in the 1950s.  Ground tent design over the ages has somehow neglected one of the main purposes of a tent : sleep. 

Isn't it time for an upgrade? For a bit of a revolution in tent evolution?

The Rev Tent is a modular tent system is built for the most comfortable camping anywhere. The versatile Rev Tent is the lightest roof top tent in the world and the only ground and pick-up tent with a built-in real mattress!  

Weighing only 25 lbs and featuring a real 4" mattress, the Rev Tent is a 2 person tent that can be set up on the ground, in the bed of a pick-up truck, and on the roof of a vehicle.

The Rev Tent is sold in 3 configurations. 

Starting at $799, the Rev Tent is ready to go for ground or pick- bed camping.  

For vehicle top sleeping, the Rev Rack Tent at $829 is the first roof top tent designed to mount directly to popular platform style roof racks 84” or longer by Front Runner, Yakima, Rhino and many more. 

The Rev Roof Top Tent is only $1329 and works on top of most vehicles and mounts to load bars and roof racks.  Featuring modular components that can easily be moved on and off the vehicle by 1 person, the Rev Roof Top Tent is not only the lightest Roof Top Tent in the world, it’s the only roof top tent that can also be effortlessly set up for camping on the ground.  

This modular, add what you need, when and if you need it, approach to vehicle roof top camping helps keep the Rev Tent weight and price low.  

Over a decade ago C6 Outdoor co-founder, Dave Payne, launched Front Runner Outfitters and was one of the first promoters in the U.S. of vehicle roof top camping. His experience travelling with, using, and selling roof top tents became the foundation for creating an even better camping tent. C6 Outdoor spent 3 years developing and testing the Rev Tent before bringing it to market.    

Dave elaborates “Because the Rev Tent can be easily moved by one person to take advantage of the best locations at the camp site, as well as on and off the vehicle for effortless storage, this game changing tent satisfies all types of campers and camping styles.  When designing the Rev Tent we focused on usability, toughness and most importantly comfort.” Dave adds, “With the thickest tent mattress available for any roof top tent and the ONLY ground tent with a real mattress, the Rev Tent is meant to be the hub and heart of any serious camping gear kit -- Ideal for the quick weekend getaway as well as end of the world expeditions.”

Available in 5 different color styles, there’s a Rev Tent to fit all camp style vibes.

ABOUT C6 OUTDOOR

THE BRAND

C6 (Carbon) is the basic building block of people, animals, plants, rocks, trees…  C6 makes up much of that mountain in the distance, as well as your friend standing next to you. This connection - what binds us to nature and to each other – is C6 Outdoor.

 

THE FOUNDERS

Having toured Africa by truck on their honeymoon, founders Dave & Tina were no strangers to long road trips and living out of roof top tents when they, from humble beginnings in their garage, built Front Runner Outfitters into one of the most respected and popular vehicle accessory companies for overlanding.

After nearly a decade in the “office”, they decided to hit pause, step away from the business, and go on an adventure with their kids. They outfitted a Land Rover with the best overlanding gear and from their home in the mountains outside of Los Angeles, set out on a leisurely drive to South America.

Reflecting on a lifetime of roughing it, they were struck by the friendships they made along the way and the ease at which they could connect with very different people over a shared campfire. What started with a spark became an obsession - How to get more people outside, more people traveling & camping, more people connecting.

Dave and Tina decided the straightest line from A to B was to take the roughing it out of roughing it and develop crossover overlanding products for the masses of everyday campers.
