The Best SUV Tent

Camping is a fun, safe, and budget-friendly pastime. Scenic views, fresh water, and beautiful foliage are just a few of the perks of camping. However, the heat and humidity can sometimes be daunting for even the most enthusiastic camper, and bugs can get just about anyone down. To avoid these common issues that come up while camping, there are tents that attach to your SUV or other mid-sized vehicle like a minivan allowing you to access the air conditioning of your car and to protect yourself behind mosquito mesh without having to leave your tent to grab items from your car. Here are some SUV tents to help you imagine your next adventure.

The Napier Sportz SUV Tent measures 9 x 9 feet with seven feet of headroom. This tent fits five adults. It connects to the back of your vehicle, which provides extra storage space while you are camping. The sleeve is detachable meaning that the tent can become a standalone tent if you do not want to attach to your SUV. There is a large storm-flap which will protect you and your loved ones if it starts to rain. Three mesh windows provide excellent ventilation. These windows do not have an internal zipper, so in order to have privacy, the storm flap must be used. While some may find this to be inconvenient, others may find it to be more pragmatic.

The ROADIE The OVERNIGHTER SUV Window Tent offers the best value for SUV tents. This tent is designed to have a universal fit for mid- and full-sized SUVs. The door width fits between 35 and 48 inches in terms of width and between 45 and 61 inches. In other words, this window tent is not meant to be used with smaller SUVs. This tent is unique in that it is meant to provide shade for camping inside of your SUV. The window tent connects to the rear passenger door with a screen and canopy. This tent can be installed easily without any tools. The screen has two zippers that make it easy to access the vehicle. There is a No-See-Um screen that gives you privacy and protects you from bugs.

The SportZ Family-Tents SUV Tent measures 10 x 10 feet and can sleep four to five people comfortably. The tent attaches to your vehicle by a sleeve which allows you to transform storage space into sleeping space. If you wish to use this tent as a ground tent, you do not have to attach the tent to your SUV. A new steel and fiberglass pole enables one person to pitch this tent alone. The floor of the tent is bathtub-style with a GoBe Dry waterproof system. The tent attaches to the back of your SUV, truck or minivan, which is important depending on where you intend to go camping. Some locations will not accommodate such a configuration. When not in use, there is an expandable storage bag.

The Awning Room Tent is one of the most durable SUV tents. The tent has walls made of 300D Oxford Polyester material that is UV treated. There is a mesh roof which allows ventilation and light into the tent. There are nylon hooks that are designed for attaching an awning pole. In case you want some extra light at night, there are cable access ports and guides for different lighting configurations. There are six pegs that come with this tent that will make sure it is securely fastened to the ground as well as a mesh pocket that can be used to organize odd-and-ends. What this tent lacks in aesthetics, it makes up for in durability and functionality.

The Napier Sportz Cove SUV Tailgate Shade Awning Tent is an excellent SUV tent option for tailgating. This canopy tent was designed to universally fit mid-to-full size CUVs, SUVs, and minivans. The canopy attaches to the back of your vehicle and provides two feet of shade. This tent is best suited for car camping as you will be sleeping in the back of the vehicle with the headroom that this canopy tent provides. There is a mesh screen that keeps bugs from getting inside your SUV. In case of rain or bad weather, there is a storm flap that provides both privacy and protection from the elements. At the end of your trip, there is a compact storage bag for easy transport.
