The latest edition to the Adventure Series rooftop tent line is the addition of the gas strut quick deployment feature. Now, Freespirit customers can begin camping within seconds versus minutes. Once the PVC cover is removed a strap is released that allows the tent to deploy instantly. Weekend warriors who typically arrive to their camping spot in the evening, can now focus on other things knowing their bed is seconds away.
Lightweight - As we walk around the tent, we notice the extruded aluminum design which translates into one of the lightest and strongest tents in the industry. At 120lbs. it makes for a more manageable installation process as well as mobility in storage during the months it is not being used.
Low Profile – At only 9” tall it is sleeker than the average roof top tent that folds in half. Most customers with a traditional roof top tent cannot park in their garage, but the profile on the Adventure Series allows most customers to be able to fit through the door.
Soft Storage – Probably one of the best features, not discussed enough, is the ability to store more gear on top of the tent. While basic bedding can be kept inside the tent before closing, it is the space on top of the tent, while it’s in the closed position, that allows for so much more storage capacity. Freespirit recommends keeping enough extra gear in the tent to help round out the cover in order to shed rainwater should the user experience rain while the tent is mounted to the vehicle. (To clarify, we recommend keeping bedding laid out INSIDE the tent like blankets and sleeping bags, and when the tent is in the closed position, things like duffel bags, camp chairs, stored sleeping bags, etc. can be staged on the face of the tent BEFORE putting the PVC cover on).
Comfort – The Adventure Series line of tents have some of the most comfortable mattresses in the industry. In a side by side comparison performed by one of the largest online Overlanding Magazines, The Expedition Portal, FSR’s Adventure Series tent was selected as having the most comfortable mattress of all.
View – One of the best features of the tent, and one of the main reasons people love roof top tent camping is the view. The panoramic view you get while comfortably sitting upright inside this tent speaks for itself. A lot of other platform style tents in the industry do not allow you to completely sit up, or open in a clam shell format which diminishes headroom on one end. The Adventure Series tent actually increases in height from back to front which allows for a comfortable viewing experience.
Premium Tri-Layer – The Tri-layer fabric system introduced by Freespirit a few years ago has only gotten better. These tents have been tested in a rain simulator without a rain fly on them. Extreme weather ready, yet forgiving in the extreme heat, having the Tri-layer fabric truly completes the perfect marriage between design and functionality.
