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:

Step-By-Step Guide On How To Mount A Roof Top Tent:

  1. All tents have a similar installation process, but they might vary a little, that is why we recommend you reading carefully THROUGH EACH PRODUCT MANUAL, as well as watching their videos (most are online, or you can ask us to send them to you).

  1. Tools needed: A Phillips head screwdriver, a box cutter, a second 13 mmm ratcheting wrench, a 10mm ratcheting wrench and a heck saw.

  1. Before mounting them onto a roof rack, flat rack or crossbar, the first step is removing your newly bought RTT from the box, as well as all the bits and pieces included (all RTTs WILL include all the necessary installation parts and a manual).

  1. Take the tent out of the box and place it on a clean surface with the straps faced DOWN. Set aside the mounting racks. Remove the protective plastic from the tent with the box cutter. Undo the straps from the sides of the tent and across the base.

  2. Open the tent, and take from inside of it all the contents. Most brands will include a tent cover, rainfly, ladder, mattress, and a pouch with the hardware, tools and parts.

  1. Most RTTs will include the following tools and hardware (see Image as an example): 2 bungees, 2 ladder brackets, 8 aluminum channel sliders with bolts and nuts, 4 end caps, four steel mounting plates, the needed wrenches, and four medium sized bolts with washers.

    tools included inside roof top tents
  1. Then, time for the action. Grab the mounting tracks of the RTT; place them on the tent base parallel to the hinges, aligning the holes in the tracks with the holes in the base.

  2. Grab the nuts, remove them from the four medium sized bolts and slide them into the mounting channels, as to align them to the holes in the base.

  3. Then take the bolts each with two washers, and slide them between the mattress and the tent base.

  4. Screw them into the pre drilled holes and the nuts you just put in the tracks.

  5. Once the tracks are on, you need turn/flip the tent over to install the ladder.

  6. Grab the Ladder Brackets and unscrew the bolts on each bracket, so that you can position over the pre-drilled holes at the edge of the tent base.

  7. Take the longer bolts each with the washer, and slide them between the mattress and the tent base, into the pre-drilled holes and up through the ladder bracket.

  1. Attach each one with a nut and leave them loose.

  1. Then grab the ladder and through the holes at the end of it, join it to the by passing the remaining length of the bolt through the holes in the ladder end. Then add another nut and tighten it on both sides.

  1. Then rotate the ladder a few times, before tightening the bolts of the brackets to the base.

  1. Then secure the ladder with the straps (most tents should have them), and then reattach the side straps of the tent to secure it. 

  1. Once all the parts have been installed, make sure you put the travel cover on top of the tent. It is a very easy process that barely needs explanation; just make sure you close the zippers carefully to prevent the tent fabric catching to the zipper.

  1. Time to place the tent on top of the vehicle. Since they weigh over 120 lbs, you will want the help of someone to do it. 

  1. Mounting the tent mounting tracks depends on whether you have side rails or cross bars, and if you want the tent to open towards the side of the car or towards the back. In this step-by-step guide we will use a side mounting as an example on top of cross bars.

  1. Place the mounting racks in the base of the tent, PERPENDICULAR to your roof rack bars.

  1. Then, fit two aluminum channel sliders and bolts into each end of the mounting track, so that there is a bolt on either side of the roof rack bar. Repeat this process at each of the 4 points where the racks and mounting racks cross.

  1. Once this is done, fit a steel mounting plate on the bolts and under the roof rack bar, and secure them with nuts and tighten them with a wrench.

  1. Insert the rubber end caps into the end of the mounting tracks to avoid water or other materials going in there. You might need to hammer them in, but don’t be too aggressive.

  1. It is INSTALLED!

How To Open The Roof Top Tent:

  1. Now, to open it, release the side straps, pull back the ladder until it locks out and use it as leverage to open the tent.


  1. Make sure all rungs of the ladder are locked into the edge.


  1. Before getting into the tent, make sure the hinges are properly engaged.


  1. Then unclasp the awnings and find the predrilled holes for the rainfly rods.


  1. Insert at a 45-degree angle and hook through the grommet.


  1. You are READY!

Lots of room

I've used this tent twice now and love it. My wife can set it up alone within 5 minutes. I'm 6 foot 4 and I can lay down the long side or the wide side and have enough room to sleep comfortably without touching the side walls. My wife, 2 kids, and I sleep in it with our dog and still have room to keep a pile of spare blankets on the side Incase it gets colder. The mattress is comfortable and has a removable liner that makes it easy to wash. The shipping was quick and painless. We had our tent at our door within 3 days. The front awning ties down good enough to handle the 30 mph winds we had on our 2nd trip.
I would highly recommend.

One of the best companies I have dealt with in a long time

Can’t say enough ability off raid tents. Not only do they have inventory ready to ship that much bigger companies are quoting 12 week lead times on, they’ve responded to questions on weekends and even New Year’s Day.

Very highly recommended.

I’m not an affiliate and wasn’t provided any incentive to provide a review (I actually had to email them to ask how to leave positive feedback)

Smitty built xl roof top tent

Very fast service

One big design flaw

Owned if for 6 months used it about 40 nights so far it is a great size fits my family of 4 ..the mattress is ok if it's just a overnighter or if u are a light person I'm 195lb and after the second night usually move to my hammock but it's not horrible ..I had it on my 4door jeep rubicon but it just felt to heavy up there so I built a trailer for it . The tents waterproofing held up amazing in a few thunder heavy rain hail but it has a serious flaw in the design of the overhang that the annex attaches to.when it rains the water does not run off and pools up and collapses the overhang .I have tried several ways to adjust the fly and pull it tight nothing has worked well enough to warrant peace of mind in a rainstorm other the just checking it all the time. I have seen utube vids on guys making there own frame around the inside with pvc pipe but my whole reason for a roof top tent was for the ease of setup and I dont wanna have to put more things together..there are a few more issues but I think they probably pertain to most tents. If you take good care of it it's a good tent for the price I also have the annex but my jeep was to tall to use it with the bottom on it, and my trailer is too low so I prob wasted my money there lol...

Good Investment

I researched RTTs to the end of the internet, and landed on the Smittybilt being the best investment. I have a small family (wife, two young kids) and the size and quality of this tent are perfect for our overlanding trips. I've only had the tent out a handful of times, but so far, I'm really happy with it.The money I saved on the tent allowed me to buy a high quality roof rack, and an onboard air compressor (ARB single piston) I installed it on my 2013 Jeep Wrangler JKU via a Rhino Rack Backbone with Pioneer Platform. I do notice a bit more weight, but nothing that significantly affects off-road performance. After all of my research I couldn't justify spending 2X-3X on a tent, if my sleeping experience was not going to be 2X-3X better. The quality seems very good. The materials are fairly standard in terms of fabric, seams, zippers, etc. Mattress is a little slim, but that is a cheap/easy fix with egg crate or other sleeping mat. We bought the annex too. Can't say enough about how luxurious it is to have the annex. It's quite big, lots of space to dress. Could easily sleep two more people. Cover is really great - the velcro attachment is strong, keeps tent clean, and really easy to install/remove. Highly recommend this tent if you've never bought an RTT. Don't waste money on a super expensive tent - start with this tent - find out if you like the set up or not - then if you really feel like you need an upgrade, sell your Smittybilt (they will sell fast) and upgrade.
