Product Details

Do you already have a Rev Tent and want to sleep on the top of your vehicle? 


With the Rev Tent Platform X you can use your Rev Tent for vehicle rooftop sleeping on most vehicles with cross bars or flat deck roof racks.  (for Roof Racks at least 48" x 84" we recommend the Rev Rack Tent)

This all-black extrusion style platform is as simple as it is strong.  Folds open to create a perfectly sized deck for the Rev Tent.  

Use on any flat deck style 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 475 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...  

NOTE: The Rev Platform X needs to be assembled by you!  All necessary tools are included.  

Includes: 

  • 8 step 7’6” / 2.3 meter telescoping ladder adjustable to accommodate different height vehicles. 
  • Weather resistant Ladder Carrying Case with 4 Rev Straps for attaching Ladder Bag to Platform or Rev Tent for transport.
  • 4 thumb screws to secure the Rev Tent to the Platform for transport and sleep.
  • C6 Outdoor Dry Bag included for storing hardware when not in use.
  • All necessary hardware for mounting to a roof rack with oval/rectangular slats and to cross bars that are no wider than 10cm / 4 ” and no higher than 4cm / 1.5”.

If rack slats are larger than dimensions listed above for the cross bars, you may need additional mounting hardware. Please refer to the manufacturer of your roof rack for the recommended way to mount a roof top tent. The C6 Outdoor included hardware is about as ‘universal” as it gets, but there are many different styles and sizes of roof racks and the C6 Outdoor included hardware may not work in all applications.  

 

FAQs

Q: HOW EASY IS IT TO SET UP THE REV ROOF TOP TENT? 
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. 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 LADDER WITH THE REV ROOF TOP TENT? 
A: You can transport the ladder inside the vehicle or truck bed, or you can transport it outside the vehicle. We at C6 call this 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 IT'S 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 carried by 1 person. 

Q: CAN I MOVE THE PLATFORM ALONE OR WILL I NEED HELP? 
A: The platform weighs 52 lbs / 23 Kgs. One person can lift the platform to the vehicle roof before a trip, or to remove it for storage after a trip.  If you're worried about damaging the vehicle or unable to lift the 52 lbs, we suggest asking a pal for help.  

Q: CAN I LEAVE THE PLATFORM ON THE VEHICLE? 
A: You can, but ideally you remove it after camping season. You’ll get many more years of use out of the product if it is kept out of the elements while not in use.

Q: HOW HARD IS IT TO ASSEMBLE THE REV PLATFORM X?

If you can follow directions and have used a wrench and a screw driver before, not hard at all. There are a bunch of repetitive steps to secure the extrusions.  Please view the assembly instructions before purchase if you are at all concerned!  If you're overwhelmed or too busy to bother, your local off-road shop or a halfway motivated Task Rabbit worker can help you assemble the platform.  Assembly takes about 2 hours.

Great design looks good works great

I was lucky to get an advance test unit when they ran out of stock of their other platform style. This version is not a flat surface like the first one. On my Chevy Colorado bed this mounted easily to my bed cross bars. Love that I can leave the platform on and keep the tent in the garage when not camping. The assembly took a minute but wasn't difficult. It did take me a little longer than their recoommened 2 hours, but the instructions were thoughtful and easy to follow. Overall, super happy I don't have to drive around with a heavy and bulky gas sucking roof tent all year round! This solution is A+ for me.

Insanely underrated tent system

I’ll caveat up front to say we haven’t been able to camp with this yet, since it’s the middle of winter. That said, I put it all together myself (alone, as a very not assembly minded individual) and put it up on my teardrop trailer, and I’m thrilled and beyond excited to get outside.

Ease of deployment - 5 stars. I am no spring chicken and it’s a piece of cake to unfold. Tent is great, too. Feels very sturdy despite the light weight.

Ease of use - 5 stars. This has already made my life easier; I can roll the teardrop into the garage without having to worry about removing a giant heavy tent. Game changer. Small footprint means it doesn’t interfere with my vent or solar panels. The rack’s low profile brings better mileage, plus if I don’t need the tent I don’t need to haul it around.

Ease of assembly - I’ll say that this was very slow going for me personally (definitely more than 2 hours), but I have to give C6 HUGE credit for immediately responding to me on a Saturday evening with one of the most detailed, encouraging, helpful responses I’ve ever gotten from a company. No kidding, they sent me a clarifying video clip answering my questions. I was really impressed and sold on their customer service if anything goes awry down the line.

Glad I waited for this while it was sold out. It was worth it and I don’t believe there’s anything comparable on the market right now.

Before assembling your product, download and read these instructions!  You must follow these steps for warranty coverage and FOR YOUR SAFETY!   

The Rev Platform X ships unassembled. You will need to build the platform! All tools are included. You must be able to follow the easy directions and set aside at least 2 hours of time.      

These .pdf guides are designed to be read and referenced from a smart phone or tablet offline while assembling product.

 

 

REV PLATFORM X ASSEMBLY

 

 

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.  

FINE PRINT:   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 can offset the square tracks of the Rev Platform X, or you can drill through the slats in order to mount the Rev Tent Platform.  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.”  

PRO TIP: 
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 BOLT THE TENT DOWN to the deck before entering! And if you’re still reading this - we can’t stress enough - bolt the tent to the platform base before entering!
