There is nothing quite like a weekend of getting away from your everyday busy life and spending time in the outdoors. Whether it is with family, friends, or by yourself, rooftop camping can be one of the best ways to disconnect and simply relax and feel comfortable on your own vehicle.
The inflatable tent specialists at Austria’s GentleTent has built the largest roof tent in the world called “the GT Sky Loft.” This roof-top tent (RTT) sleeps up to five people, has two separate rooms, and offers a glass house like views.
Now no need to worry about terrain like rocky, muddy, or steep countryside and also forget fiddling with unruly tent poles and hammering away at cheap metal stakes. The GT Sky Loft is an air-filled camping tent containing no rods and poles. Spend less time working and more time under the stars with a rooftop tent and get the feel of your own backcountry hotel room.
With the weight of only 49kg, the tent offers a living space of 3.4 m x 2.00 m for up to 5 people – which makes it indeed a family size roof tent. Both the tent construction and the sleeping area of the roof tent are entirely inflatable. Additionally, the tent can be mounted in two ways – the vehicle length to and across the vehicle.
It comes with 55-in (1.4 m) interior height and this offers around 10 cubic meters of room space, plus the big lying area can be subdivided into two rooms.
The Sky Loft is not just about the size, it also offers a better view than traditional roof tents. The rear of the tent is designed as a “Skyroom”, opened up with weatherproof transparent roof panels, mesh windows and a full-size roll-up transparent door/window.
Four large mosquito windows, two on each side – which can be zipped shut in bad weather – provide the breathable PolyCotton tent fabric an outstanding indoor climate. The lying platform is made of drop-stitch material.
Despite its large size, the GT Sky Loft still packs in light and compact size, measuring 165 cm x 145 cm x 15 cm. Another interesting feature is it two entrances when mounted laterally. You separately need to purchase the second ladder, but two entrances make it easier to get in and out.
