  • 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.

Your roof rack and cross bars MUST have a dynamic weight load of at least 165lbs/75kg, your cross bars MUST be at least 30"/76cm apart, and your vehicle MUST have load limit over 165lbs/kg. Please consult your vehicle's manufacturer regarding the load limit, and please note that we do NOT recommend mounting the Skycamp on compact cars). Not following these instructions could not only damage your vehicle but could also cause serious injury.


Skycamp's ladder comes in 2 sizes: standard (83"/211cm) and long (94"/239cm). These heights are the maximum distance from the ground to the top of your roof rack/cross bars (ladders themselves are 230 and 260cm).


  • 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 poly material, so it's quieter in windy conditions.

This fabric also lasts longer than poly (no need to tape seems!) 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 the Skycamp to avoid mildew.  

Understanding Flame Retardants

The Poly-Cotton canvas tent comes in two different versions: one is fire retardant (FR) treated, and the other is not (FR Free).

Flame retardants (FR) are applied to many types of materials (children's pajamas, furniture, curtains, tents) to prevent or slow the spread of fire. These treatments are very common in tent fabrics to meet regulatory flammability requirements. iKamper's Poly 210D materials (tent, awning, annex) and FR Poly-Cotton canvas tents have flame retardants applied on them and comply with industry flammability standards, such as the CPAI-84 standard used in 7 states in the US (CA, LA, MA, MI, MN, NJ, or NY) and Canada.

Revisiting Our Understanding of Flame Retardants

The current tent flammability standard for several states in the US and Canada, CPAI-84, was created in 1976 to limit the risk of fire in canvas tents coated in wax. Although flame retardants offer the potential benefit of fire reduction, tent fabrics have greatly evolved, and research suggests that some of these chemicals may be harmful to people and the environment. The natural Poly-Cotton canvas material is also more breathable, and as such iKamper's standard canvas Skycamp is the FR-Free version.

For Canada and 7 states in the USA (CA, LA, MA, MI, MN, NJ, or NY), we ship the poly-cotton canvas with FR treatment because of the flame retardant laws there.
