The Revolutionary Rev Tent Lets You Camp Where You Want

Photo By: C6 Outdoor

The most popular rooftops tents on the market tend to have one thing in common… everything. That’s because the design of your typical rooftop tent hasn’t changed in the over 70 years since they were introduced.

Meet the Rev Tent from C6 Outdoor

C6 Outdoor, creators of the Rev Tent sought to change that, developing a tent that can be used on your rooftop, in the bed of a truck, or as a ground tent – allowing you the flexibility to choose the best place to setup for your tent when you’re out exploring.

If you’re near a beautiful canyon or mountain lake, you might want to camp on the roof of your rig for maximum view. If it is windy or you’re setting up for multiple days and taking your rig out to explore the area around you, you can choose to deploy the Rev Tent as a ground tent. You can even use the Rev Tent as a truck bed tent

Rev Tent Exterior

Rev Tent is a true four-season tent with a fully protective waterproof fly, dual layer wind-resistant walls, and a comfortable sleeping mattress to protect you from cold coming from the ground. The entries into the Rev Tent are extra tall and angled, meaning you don’t have to get down on all fours to get into the tent. All four windows can be opened floor to ceiling to maximize your view of your surroundings.

Rev Tent Interior

It appears that the tent is the star of the show with the Rev Tent instead of the focus on the outer shell or the components. The Rev Tent is the first ground tent with a real mattress – not an air mattress – that hits the trifecta of portability, strength, and affordability.
