TENT MODELS

DYNAMIC VS STATIC WEIGHT

Dynamic weight refers to the weight supported by your vehicle when it is in motion and your roof top tent is closed, while static weight refers to the weight supported by your vehicle when it is stopped and the tent is deployed. The dynamic weight requirements for your vehicle and cross bars / rack system to accommodate our roof top tents is essentially equal to the weight of the tent itself. The dynamic weight capacity takes into account various forces at play when your vehicle is in motion (acceleration,  terrain, turning, etc.). We recommend after-market cross bars / rack systems as they have a higher dynamic weight capacity than stock cross bars.


The static weight capacity of your vehicle is much higher than the dynamic weight capacity, as the weight of your roof top tent is dispersed over the entire frame of the vehicle and supported by the ladder. In addition, when your vehicle is parked and your tent is deployed, our roof top tents can hold about 900 lbs.

MOUNTING

Thanks to our universal mounting system, iKamper roof top tents fit on most vehicles.
They are designed to be mounted on two normal cross bars (not directly on the roof of the car), such as ones from Front Runner, Rhino Rack, Thule, or any other after-market cross bars (same bars you would attach your bike or Kayak to). Our tents come with Mounting Brackets 2.0, which are compatible with a max cross bar height of 1.2" (3cm) and a width of 3.5" (9cm). For higher cross bars, Mounting Brackets 1.0 should be used.
Check your vehicle's manual or contact manufacturer to know your roof's dynamic weight limit. Dynamic weight refers to the weight supported by your vehicle when it is in motion, while static weight refers to the weight supported by your vehicle when it is stopped.
Make sure your roof rack or cross bars have a dynamic weight load of 165 lbs (75 kg) or more for the Skycamp 2.0 (4X), or a dynamic weight load of 125 lbs (57 kg) or more for the Skycamp 2X, Skycamp Mini, and the X-Cover.
iKamper RTTs have two rails underneath the main panel, and are mounted on your cross bars with adjustable mounting brackets. Check the spacing of each model's mounting rails below to make sure it fits your rack. The rails are 1.77" / 4.5cm wide and 0.98" / 2.5cm tall.

Mounting Instructions

IMPORTANT: You agree and acknowledge that is your sole responsibility to determine whether your vehicle or trailer is suitable and safe for use and installation of the Skycamp.

iKamper RTTs have two rails underneath the main panel, and are mounted on your cross bars with adjustable mounting brackets. Check the spacing of each model's mounting rails below to make sure it fits your rack. The rails are 1.77" / 4.5cm wide and 0.98" / 2.5cm tall.

Your roof rack and cross bars MUST have a dynamic weight load of 165 lbs (75 kg) or more for the Skycamp (4X), a dynamic weight load of 125 lbs (57 kg) or more for the Skycamp 2X, Skycamp Mini, and the X-Cover, and your cross bars MUST be at least 30" / 76 cm apart (for the Skycamp Mini, your cross bars must be a minimum of 22" / 55 cm apart). In addition, your vehicle MUST have load limit over 165 lbs/ 75 kg. Please consult your vehicle's manufacturer regarding the load limit, and please note that we do NOT recommend mounting the Skycamp or X-Cover on compact cars; the Mini line of tents are suitable for that. Not following these instructions could not only damage your vehicle but could also cause serious injury.

Ladder

The iKamper ladder is 83"/211 cm. This height is the maximum distance from the ground to the top of your roof rack/cross bars (the ladder itself is 90.5" / 230 cm).

Fabric

Poly-Cotton

  • 300gsm Super Density Poly Cotton Canvas

  • Water Resistant

  • Breathable

  • Insulating

  • Long Lasting

Poly-Cotton is breathable (less chance of condensation) and insulates very well. You won't get as hot on a warm day, nor as cold when it is chilly. It is heavier than traditional tent fabric, but due to its weight and insulation properties it is quieter if there's a breeze. This fabric can also last longer and is more resistant to harmful UV rays. Poly-Cotton canvas is waterproof, but care should be taken to dry out the material before closing your iKamper RTT to avoid mildew.

Fabric Care

Most modern tents often use a fully polyester material. At iKamper, we use canvas (65/35 Poly-cotton Blend). Using canvas as opposed to polyester allows constant fresh airflow and full breathability throughout the tent. In addition, these factors drastically decrease the condensation that occurs when sleeping in a tent.

Due to the construction of canvas, it is possible in rare cases that you may experience slight leaking around seams during heavy rain and wind.

Rest assured this would only potentially occur during your first couple of uses in adverse weather conditions.

To combat this, we highly recommend weathering your tent before using in such conditions.

To weather your tent, simply remove the fly and soak the canvas through with a shower hose, and then allow to air dry. The process of soaking the fibers through allows them to completely expand. Once dried, the fibers remain in their expanded state and align themselves evenly, increasing the overall resistance to rain.

If you still experience a small leak after weathering your tent at least 3 times, we have provided you with a liquid sealant which will enable you to fix any issues if they do occur. Please note you are able to use the liquid sealant for any hole that may occur when using your tent.
