The Hard Shell

The hard shell is manufactured in fiberglass fortified polyester and the bottom has provisions to hold the aluminum ladder.

Automatic Opening & Closing

We promise you that not only is there no other rooftop camping tent that opens as easily and as quickly on the market today – but closes as well. Opening the tent is automatic and nearly effortless thanks two AL-KO struts that opens the tent automatically in 5 seconds. All you have to do is release the catches!

Closing the tent is nearly as easy – just close the top half of the shell and by hand and the fabric sides are automatically drawn into the hull by the elasticized seam. Secure the latches and you’re done. All in all – it takes around 15 seconds to completely close and latch the top shell to the bottom and you’re ready to continue down the trail!

Durability & Weatherproof

No one wants to be caught in a storm while in a rooftop tent. Combine heavy rain with high winds – it makes even the toughest adventurers cringe. While we hope you never find yourself in the situation, you can sleep in confidence knowing that James Baroud tents are waterproof and tested upto 74mph (120Km/hr).

The Canvas

The canvas is dark gray made of six (6) aluminized coats that reflect the sun’s ray. This is critical as in warmer climates a rooftop tent without the ability to reflect heat and air ventilation will turn into an oven. The canvas is also UV resistant, 100% waterproof but allows air to circulate to resist mildew – a common occurrence with other materials in wet climates. All seams are doubled for the utmost ruggedness and are 100% watertight.

The inside of the canvas includes two removable pockets and a storage net on the ceiling. Three zipped canvas doors with a double slider are fitted with insect screens to keep those pesky bugs out. A window with an insect screen is integrated to the back door with an eave to protect from rain.

The Mattress

The mattress is made from a high density foam and comes with a heavy duty zipped cover.  


The tent comes with a 15 high intensity LED indoor light which doubles as a removable rechargeable flashlight. All wiring is supplied with the tent. The flashlight has an unbreakable polycarbonate lens and a battery charge indicator.


If you’ve owned a rooftop tent or known someone who has; you know how hot a rooftop tent can get. You also know how one that stays on the roof may develop a mildew smell. Standard with James Baroud tents, it comes with an automatic and silent MCV (motorized controlled ventilation) which is powered by a 24 hour life battery which can be recharged by an integrated solar panel kit. This MCV has the capacity of 11.6 M3/mn (2905 UK gal/mn) and prevent all condensation and remove stored heat to avoid moisture and mould.

A second propeller is supplied with reverse blades to act as a fan. The fans are easily exchanged from inside the tent.
