Product Details

The Rev Rack Tent has all the features of the best roof top tents - and more!

The Rev Rack Tent is a heavy-duty, 4-season, 2 person Roof Top Tent with a built-in mattress that weighs only 25 lbs / 11 kgs and includes hardware to mount directly to platform-style roof racks 48” x 84” / 1220mm x 2134mm or larger.  The Rev Rack Tent can also be easily set up on the ground for maximum camping options.   

The Elevator Pitch: Why the Rev Rack Tent is better. Go!

70% - 80% lighter than similar sized roof top tents. This one fact alone provides a world of benefits:

Portable.  1 person can easily move the tent on and off vehicle.  Quickly convert vehicle back to a daily driver as needed.

Fuel Savings.  Use the extra scratch and fill the cooler to the top for more productive happy hours with all your camping friends. 

Safety.  Lowering the center of gravity by taking weight off the roof means more control over your vehicle.  When navigating challenging trails to get to the most remote places on earth, every pound counts. 

Cost savings. Your roof rack is already a perfect platform for a tent, so why pay twice for another platform?  By eliminating the base from the Rev Rack Tent, you only pay for what matters most – a superior quality tent. 

Low profile. Ordinary Roof Top Tents are taller because of the height added by the base, under platform rails and tent mount feet. The Rev Rack Tent sits a total of 8” / 203mm off your rack. And if you still can’t fit your vehicle in your garage with the Rev Rack Tent mounted to your rack, it only takes 1 minute (literally) for 1 person to remove it!

Small footprint for transport. Free up space on the roof rack for camping essentials like firewood, storage boxes and other adventure gear.  

Thicker Mattress. Compare to most ordinary roof top tent mattresses at only 2-3” / 51-76mm thick. The Rev Rack Tent clocks in at 4”/ 10cm with the added bonus layer of a puffy quilted topper.  

Ground Use. When not roof top camping use the Rev Rack Tent anywhere on the ground at the campground, in the yard, in a pick-up truck bed, or any flat surface 48” x 84”  / 1220mm x 2134mm.  With the Rev Rack Tent you have the option to camp comfortably where vehicles can’t.  

True 4-Season. The Rev Tent is the only Roof Top Tent with a full top to bottom fly to offer real 4 season protection. 

Amazing 360* views. 4 floor to ceiling openings with screens offer unobstructed views.  

Wind resistant. No giant plastic or aluminum lid or “top hat” style fly sheet to create a wind catching sail in strong winds.

Easy out of the way storage. Just hang the Rev Tent on garage wall.  

The Rev Rack Tent works on platform-style roof racks 48” x 84” / 1220mm x 2134mm or larger from Front Runner, Yakima, Rhino and other popular roof rack brands.  


      • Includes mounting kit for either Front Runner, Yakima, Rhino or other popular platform-style roof racks.*
      • A comfortable tri-layer 4” foam mattress w/ puffy quilted topper
      • 4 doors/windows with zippered screens for views and superior ventilation
      • Weighs only 25 lbs / 11.5 kgs. 1 person easy lift on and off vehicles and in and out of garages
      • Set up time 3-5 minutes - Just unzip, flip open, secure corner tabs to rack and assemble 6 poles

      • Zippered cable port for solar and charging cables

      • Heavy duty 840D nylon tent base is also the weather proof zippered storage case
      • 6 interior hooks for organizing and light hanging options

The Scout Rev Tent colors are a nod to the classic canvas ground tents and look smart on any vehicle. 

Roof Rack not included!  

The Rev Ladder is Sold Separately. If you have a way to climb up your vehicle - a rear mounted ladder, a rear swing mounted tire, up over the hood, etc - you don’t need a ladder for your Rev Rack Tent. If you need a ladder, get it here.

For a deep dive on the Rev Rack Tent and roof rack compatibility, read this ARTICLE.

*If using a roof rack other than the appropriately sized Front Runner, Yakima or Rhino Racks, gaps between the rack slats can be no greater than 8” / 203mm. For more information on mounting please visit our HELP DESK and search for the rack you’d like information on. Or just CONTACT US!


For Vehicle Top Roof Rack camping, you might need the Rev Ladder and Rev Ladder Carrying Case.  (If you want to save on weight and space and already have another way to climb up to your roof - like a rear vehicle mounted ladder or up a rear bumper swing mounted tire, no need for an additional ladder.) 

Take your Rev Tent to 11 with the Gear & Gadget Loft, Fitted Sheets, Pillow, Blankets, and Lights.

A:  The Rev Rack Tent works with most flat platform style roof racks 48” x 84” / 1220mm x 2134mm or larger.   The Rev Rack Tent won’t work for sleeping on any rack that has gaps in the slats wider than 8” / 20 cm.

The Rev Rack Tent has been designed to attach at specific points to these following Front Runner, Rhino and Yakima Racks: 

FRONT RUNNER Slimline II & Slimsport :  any roof rack at least 11 slats long (85” / 2166mm or longer)  This includes racks for the Jeep JKU, Jeep JL, Land Rover LR3/LR4, old and new Defender 110, G-Wagen, Toyota Land Cruiser 200, Toyota 4Runner, all Sprinter Vans and much more.   Note: the Rev Tent is not compatible with Expedition Rail Kit Sides on the narrowest 1255mm rack.    

YAKIMA  Lock-N-Load Platform:  size  E  (84” x 49”), size N (84” x 54”),  size H (84” x 62”)   (Note: The Rev Tent will not work with the Perimeter Rail Kit.)  

RHINO Pioneer Platform:  42115B  (107”x 58 “ / 2728 x 1465 mm),   42107B/52107 (84” x 49”/  2128mm x 1236mm),     42104B/52104 (84”x56” / 2128mm x1426mm),  42105B/42115BF/42119BF (107”x 58” / 2528mm x 1586mm)    (Note: The Rev Tent does not play nice with the Front and Side Rail Kits. We recommend a completely flat deck)  

Because the Rev Rack Tent case features a variety of tabs with mounting points, the Rev Tent can also work with other brand appropriately sized platform style roof racks.  

By choosing the “Other” mounting kit option when you add the Rev Rack Tent to your cart, you will get a set of Rev Straps which can secure the Rev Rack Tent to many different brand roof racks for transport and sleeping.  

For information on using The Rev Rack Tent  on other brand flat deck roof racks not mentioned here, search for your roof rack in our HELP DESK,  read this ARTICLE, and/or CONTACT US!   

A:   However you want!  Do you have a rear vehicle ladder? Spare tire and bumper you can climb on? Go for it. Tailgate, or strong hood? Just lift yourself up. No ladder needed. If you don’t have a vehicle that works for climbing, the optional ladder works with all roof racks (the ladder includes jumbo rubber padded hooks at the top) and can be placed on either side or the rear of the vehicle.

For ground camping, because there are 4 windows that double as doors, no more climbing over your sleep buddy to get in or out of the tent!  And we’ve made sure the side tent openings are super tall so you don’t have to commando crawl in to the tent.   


A: You can leave it on your vehicle, but because the tent is so lightweight you can easily move the tent off the vehicle and out of the elements for a longer life.  We recommend hanging the tent on your garage wall. If you don’t have a garage, you can store it under your bed, or in a walk in closet. You can even break the mattress down and store the tent in the original boxes if necessary.    


 ROOF RACK TOP set up time:  3-5 minutes.    1. Unzip and flip open.  2.  Hand tighten eyebolts through 2 grommets.   3. Assemble 4 poles   4.  Pop in 2 fly sheet eyebrows.

Before purchasing the Rev Roof Top Tent, please review these important facts:

  1. You will be adding weight to your vehicle. This will alter your gas mileage (for the worse!). When carrying a Roof Top Tent on a vehicle you may hear whistling and added noise.
  2. Bolting stuff to the outside of your vehicle is not for the faint-hearted! Make sure you read, follow step by step, and understand the installation instructions and ALL WARNINGS before traveling with a Roof Top Tent.
  3. It will take 5-10 minutes to ready the Rev Roof Top Tent for camping. It is not magic! In order to use the Rev Roof Top Tent there are 3 components that need to be set up. First: The tent poles need to be assembled. Second: The platform needs to be positioned. And lastly: The tent needs to be attached to the platform.
  4. It is recommended that you store the tent and platform off of the vehicle when not being used for camping. This will help the gas mileage and prolong the life of your Rev Roof Top Tent components. This is how the Rev Roof Top Tent was conceived. If you want to turn your vehicle in to a full-time, year-round 365 day camping machine, the Rev Roof Top Tent might not be the best solution for you.
  5. Review and understand our return policy. These products are not cheap to ship. And they are just as expensive to ship back if you don’t understand exactly what you’re getting and would like to make a return.
  6. We want you to be fully informed and 100% satisfied with your Rev Roof Top Tent. After all, you’re trusting us with your camp shelter and this is an investment for a lifetime of camping comfort and outdoor fun!
