Off Road Tents - Our Story
How Was Off Road Tents Born?
Let us tell you a bit of a story. Off Road Tents was nothing a few years ago. It all started after the trip of a lifetime, and we now want to help others have a similar experience.
Two best friends fly to Australia, with the goal of driving across the Australian territory, visiting beaches, crossing deserts, exploring forests, mountains, national parks. And thank god we did it.
We started off in Perth, Western Australia, and drove along the south west coast, visiting white sanded beaches, stopping to admire the beauty of pink lakes, kangaroos chilling under the sun at the beach, then we bathed on light blue water. It was paradise.
By night, we slept in a Roof Top Tent. We had never been in one before, but once there, we were lucky to find good deal for the car and a TJM RTT. And off we went, setting it up at sunset to then sleep like babies and get ready for the next day's adventure.
We proceeded to cross the Nullarbor plain, a desert over 800 miles long, where we had to drive through Australia's longest straight road. And when we were tired, every night we'd just crawl into our rooftop tent and that was it.
What made it great was then being able to set up camp in a parking lot (we advice you to be careful since it's not allowed to do this in Australia), parked somewhere along the Great Ocean Road, overlooking the ocean, and just be there, on the roof of our car, in our tent, just chilling.
Before this short trip we had been to New Zealand, couldn't find a roof top tent there, but we drove around sleeping a camper van. After comparing both experiences, we can tell you, rooftop tents are much better!
We had always travelled to exotic countries, hiked the Himalayas, drove around in Mexico, explored Norway, and wanted to keep doing it. With a backogrund in business and one in marketing, we wanted to join forces: experiencing the outdoors and freedom, with a business.
Therefore, we decided we wanted to create a company that sold these tents, as to make our passion more accessible to any overlanding or road tripping enthusiasts in America. That's why we now sell some of the best rooftop tent brands in USA: TJM, Tepui Tents, Guana Equipment, iKamper, Eezi-Awn, and many more. Later on came racks and overlanding equipment. anything you might need for an off-roads adventure.
So if you're looking to purchase an RTT or any other overlanding accessory, buckle up, because at Off Road Tents we'll show you why exactly we are so passionate about them. In no time you'll be crossing the US, Kerouac style, proud and excited about your rig and your roof top tent.
