Rooftop tents have become increasingly popular over the past few years. Here are some answers to the Frequently Asked Questions about Rooftop Tents. 
-What is the benefit of a rooftop tent?
Rooftop tents get you off the ground, providing a great view. In most situations, they also provide more airflow than you’ll get when you’re sleeping in a tent on the ground.
When your tent is on the roof of your vehicle, you’re also out of the dirt and away from creepy crawly things on the ground. That makes a rooftop tent feel more secure.
Most rooftop tents are super quick and easy to set up. And when your tent is on your roof, it’s always with you, which can inspire some great impromptu adventures.
Rooftop tents typically come with a mattress and some can store bedding even when the tent is packed.
-Are Roof Top Tents Waterproof?
Roof Top Tents are made from quality canvass that is durable as well as waterproof. They are considered a 3-Season or 4-Season tent, meaning they can withstand harsh weather conditions like rain, wind, and even snow.
-How Do Roof Top Tents go in the Wind?
Roof Top Tents are pretty dependable in any weather condition, including wind. They can hold up pretty well against winds up to 50-60 kph gustiness, but it will not be pleasant.
-Does a Roof Top Tent Affect Gas/Fuel Mileage?

Roof Top Tents are made from very durable materials like a thick canvass, and heavy-duty aluminum frames.
These materials are so durable that they can last for decades, with normal wear and tear, coupled with proper maintenance and upkeep.
-Can you put a rooftop tent on a car?
Yes, Many rooftop tents are designed to be mounted on cars. But not every tent will fit every car. The size and weight of the tent need to match the size and carrying capacity of your car’s roof rack.
For best results, use aftermarket bars, not standard factory-installed racks. 
-Can You Put a Roof Top Tent on a Trailer?
