With their universal mounting system, iKamper rooftop tents can be mounted on most vehicles on the market. They are designed to be mounted on two normal cross bars (not directly on the roof of the car), such as ones from Thule, Yakima, or any other after-market cross bars (same bars you would attach your bike or Kayak to).

The cross bars should have a (dynamic) weight capacity of 165 lbs (75kg), and they should be at least 30" apart (76cm). 
Please check the dimensions and mounting directions of the Skycamp HERE.

The Skycamp can be mounted on a truck's roof or bed as well, and please check the dimensions above to see if it fits yours.

However, some specific vehicles cannot have cross bars installed on the roof and therefore cannot have a tent mounted. Please check these links by Thule and Yakima to let you choose the best racks for YOUR vehicle.

iKamper does not sell roof racks, but​ Rack Outfitters offers a 10% discount on racks for iKamper customers. If interested, or if you have any questions about which type of rack is best for your car model, please contact Paul at

Please keep the Skycamp's weight in mind (approx. 150 lbs) when selecting a roof rack.

About 155 lbs (70kg).
The Skycamp itself can hold up to 900 lbs (408kg), and the ladder 350lbs (150kg).
The weight limit is mostly that of your roof rack/cross bars.

Most cross bars and roof racks give their dynamic weight load, which is the weight they can carry when you're driving. i.e. if your cross bars have a dynamic weight load of 165lbs, you shouldn't put anything heavier than that on your bars when you're driving.

Because other forces (wind, braking, bumps, etc) are at work when you're driving, the static weight load (weight limit when you're parked) is actually much higher that the dynamic weight load.

The Skycamp comes in one size that fits on most vehicles' roof racks. For the exact dimensions and mounting instructions, please click HERE.

Very easy! You can mount and unmount it using just one bolt wrench (spanner) anytime you want.

The weight of the Skycamp is only about 155 lbs (70kg) which is incredibly lightweight, considering its size when it is open. It can be loaded and unloaded by 2-3 people. The first time you mount the tent on your vehicle, it will take less than 30 minutes and once you get the hang of it, less than 10 minutes.
