Mounting Instructions

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).

  • Check your vehicle's manual or contact manufacturer to know your roof's weight limit.
  • Make sure your roof rack or cross bars have a dynamic weight load of at least 165lbs/75kg.

If you're not sure which roof rack or cross bars are best for your vehicle, Rack Outfitters can help! Plus, they offer a 10% discount to iKamper customers. Please contact Paul at

  • Your cross bars should be at least 30" / 76cm apart.
  • Check the spacing of the Skycamp'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.


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 so you won't get as hot on a warm day, nor as cold when it is chilly.

It's heavier than typical polyester tent material so quieter in windy conditions.

This fabric also lasts longer than poly (no need to tape seems!) and is more resistant to harmful UV rays.  

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.


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 breath-ability throughout the tent. In addition, these factors drastically decreases 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 you first couple 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. 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 time. 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.
