Here is an interesting idea, a tent that fits on the top of the car.
One of the latest trends you may have already started seeing are roof top tents. If you haven’t yet seen one when camping, they’re a bit inconspicuous when packed away. Folded up, they’re about the size of a square mattress sitting on a roof rack. When opened up they’re unmistakable, with a ladder ascending to a spacious tent, most commonly seen atop 4-wheel drives and SUVs. Roof top tents are also now commonly used in the latest off road camping trailer applications.
The primary purpose of a rooftop tent is to enable sleeping off the ground, improving protection from the elements. Here in North America, rooftop tents are relatively new, but became popular in the dangerous Outback of Australia, with tons of nasty critters you don’t want in your tent.
