NEW Sparrow Hardshell Roof Top Tent - Sleeps 2 Adults - by Roofnest

Roofnest had released a new and improved model of the original Sparrow back in 2018. After the great success, it's kept it!

It will comfortably fit 2 adults, meaning it is the ideal hard top for couples or solo travelers. It has two main advantages, the lightweight (it weighs only 115 lbs), which means it won't have much of an impact on fuel economy as well as it'll be easy to install.

This 2018 Edition, comes with a completely new shell design with new shape, construction, and materials. The new tent utilizes a fiber-reinforced ABS shell (previous models were fiberglass only) which has been re-shaped with updated styling and aerodynamics.

Also, the thicker and better canvas with insulation, which makes the tent warmer, meaning it's now suitable for 4-season camping.

The Sparrow is about 80 inches long x 46 inchse wide on the inside, with a height (when open) of  36 inches, and 10.5 inches tall when closed. It comes, as all Roofnests, with a telescoping ladder, mounting hardware, and a 2.5 inch thick mattress.

The interior pockets are now attached with clips so that they can be removed and attached to the outside of the tent for storage of things best left outside – such as shoes.

As to the durability, there is no questions, this hardshell car top tent is durable, built with good quality materials, and Roofnest offers a 1 year warranty against factory defects.

As to us, we offer Free Shipping!

What To Do Before Accepting Shipment?

If your order has shipped please note that the tracking number may not be active until it reaches a freight terminal. This could take 1 to 2 business days from the date of this email.

Please inspect your package for damage prior to signing for it.

Off Road Tents takes pride in its products and packaging. Every tent that we ship out is properly classified, packaged, marked and labeled. Also each package is in the proper condition for transportation according to applicable regulations of the U.S. Department of Transportation and/or international agencies.

Once your order is signed for at the delivery point, the package becomes your property and thus, our liability ends as far as shipping damage is concerned. Help protect yourself from loss or damage, or an uncomfortably painful claims process by:

1. Before Signing for your order, inspect the box or boxes for freight loss or damage. Red flags are punctures or any sign of forklift damage.

2. If any of the product(s) appear to be damaged or crushed do not accept delivery. Refuse the shipment and it will be sent back for processing.

3. It is extremely important that you inspect the box and tent (in case the item purchased is a tent) for damage BEFORE you sign to receive the tent. Please take photos of the box on the pallet exactly as it arrives. Please note, the driver will not help with damage inspection. IF you even suspect there could be damage to your item, please take pictures of the damage and REFUSE the delivery. That way the carrier will send it back to us and we'll process a new shipment.

4. Get a copy of the signed delivery receipt that shows the freight loss or damage notation, and send it to us:

5. Contact Off Road Tents immediately at 1.844.200.3979

If you accept a damaged delivery, and/or there is freight loss and/or the damage is not noted at the time of delivery, Off Road Tents cannot be held liable for any replacement costs related to the shipment. Protect yourself from this by examining before you sign. Refusing delivery when damaged helps Off Road Tents win the case against the carrier, and replacing your item.

Roof nest Sparrow

Quality on delivery was great. No instructions included but the YouTube videos on this product and it’s simplicity made it a easy install.
Negative: the fist planned trip one of the air cylinders quit working. This made unzipping the windows impossible.

roofnest sparrow on an 80 series

Ive had my roofnest sparrow for about 6 months, but in those few months its been across the USA twice and specifically into the ouray mtns and MOAB twice. its held up perfect. they could use better hardware and interior. but its half the price of many others. and will do the job.


Ask a Question
  • is the shell fiberglass or plastic?

    The material is ABS outer shell reinforced with fiberglass

  • Can you store sleeping bags in it when closed?

    If it's a very slim sleeping bag, it might. But hardshells don't have that much space to store things inside of them. It can be a bit tricky.
