Redtail Overland has unveiled its flagship carbon-fiber rooftop camper tent that can turn a vehicle into a camper.
The "hard-sided" rooftop tents, or RTCs for short, includes several features that can often be found in a traditional camper van, such as outlets and light fixtures, without needing an actual converted van base. And unlike traditional camping tents that take time to set up, the RTC — which are available in two sizes — can be assembled and taken apart in 30 seconds with the help of its foldable, hinged walls.
All of the tents, which are currently available for preorder, will be hand built to order in Colorado by Redtail Overlander, which was founded by former EarthRoamer executives husband and wife Ty and Annie Tatro. The large Redtail 110 and its smaller counterpart, the Redtail 90, tents are both expected to be produced in August with the intent of being on the market by October.
The Redtail 110 is listed for $25,000, while the Redtail 90 is slightly cheaper at $20,000.
Rooftop tents and pop-top campers aren't a new concept. For example, Fjordsen is producing inflatable tents that can be mounted on the roof rack of almost any car, while many camper van conversion companies have already started including pop tops in their van builds.
However, Redtail Overlander sets itself apart from soft roof top tents and pop top vans with its interior features, carbon fiber tent shell, and power systems.
