Yes. The maximum load limit of your roof racks/bars refers to moving loads (dynamic), as opposed to static loads (when still). Your static load is usually 7-10 times that of your dynamic. For example, if your dynamic load is 50kgs, then the static load is anywhere from 350-500kg.
So when you set up camp, and your car is stationary, your car and racks can take the larger load of 1-2 people sleeping on the roof racks quite comfortably.
You just need two people to pick it up and put it on the car. Once on the roofers it will take a few minutes to secure the 4 brackets. That’s it! If you go to our YouTube page you can watch a basic video showing how to install the Pod, click the link
*if you have a full roof rack you will need to let us know
No! We have zip panels along the side which seal the tent when travelling.
Store upright in your garage or storage container and the maximum depth would be 300mm, making it neat and slim against the wall. Otherwise create hoist bars and lift up to the roof of your carport or garage. you can even hang it on the wall
The roof and zip sides are made from 400g rip stop canvas. The side walls are made from a lighter 260g rip stop. Then there is the outer pvc cover on the roof
The tent comes standard with a 2.6m ladder. If you have a normal car, that will be too long so we can replace it with a 2m ladder.
The ladder connects to the round tube of the tent and can be secured anywhere along the frame of the tent
The tent comes with a pvc cover which is fed along the front of the frame with rope channel. You can replace your cover if it gets damaged on trips by thorns or the elements.
The Pod’s also come with a back window awning with spring forms.

Ripstop is a water repellant fabric.
Like anything made from fabric, maintenance is needed for the seam sealing. So every 6months to a year, just coat all the seams in a waterproof wax and you are ready to go for the next camping season.
The roofbars are ideal for surfboards, solar panels an other light weight items. Our maximum recommended weight on the top of the tent is 20-30kg
