About this rooftop tent

Tested in the rigours of the Australian Outback, Amelia is a premium model of softshell tent made by Sheepie in Australia. It has a strong and lightweight aluminium frame with a waterproof fabric cover. When you are travelling, the tent folds up and is protected by a durable travel cover.

The tent opens effortlessly on gas struts and it packs away just as quickly by pulling on a cord.

With a high density 2″ thick foam mattress measuring 200cm x 120cm, this tent is comfortable for 2 adults. The mattress has an anti-condensation mat below and an elasticated mattress protector on top. Being a roof tent, you are guaranteed a smooth bed base with no roots or stones to disturb your rest.

It has a large entrance on one side for easy access and it has zippable windows on the other three sides. The entrance and all the windows have a zippable mesh screen to keep insects at bay. This is ideal if you are touring somewhere like Scotland where the midges can be a nuisance.

You are welcome to bring your own bedding or sleeping bags. Alternatively we are happy to hire you a duvet & pillows for a small extra charge. Just remember to take anything really bulky out of the tent before you fold it away.

This is an instruction video for Amelia. It shows you how you can set up and collapse the tent in just a few minutes.

Setting up & packing away

At our barn in Hawkshead, we fit the rooftop tent to your vehicle for you at the start of your hire, and we remove it at the end of your hire. If you do not have roofbars, that’s not a problem. We can hire you a suitable set of Thule roofbars that will work with most vehicles – just send us an enquiry and we will check what you need.

Amelia can be set up by one person in under 3 minutes from arrival at your chosen spot to being ready to sleep in. It is just as quick to fold away.

You get access to the tent using the included telescopic aluminium ladder. We’ll demonstrate how to easily and quickly adjust the ladder’s length to match your vehicle’s height. The ladder will work with any car that’s up to 2.3 metres from ground to roobar level. When the tent is not in use, the ladder collapses down on top of the tent and it stores under the travel cover.

Roof tent specifications

The outer fly sheet is a ripstop polyester-oxford fabric. This gives a great combination of breathability with water resistance.

The inner lining of the tent is made from ripstop polycotton. This material gives you the breathability and insulation of a traditional cotton canvas tent, reducing condensation. It also has the light construction and easy drying of polyester.

The sleeping area is 200cm x 120cm. On your roof, the tent is 212cm long and 132cm wide. When closed, the tent is 24cm high. When opened, it is 130cm high. The tent weighs 39kg without the ladder. If your car is low enough for the ladder to be stowed under the tent cover, that adds another 6kg.
