FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

PRODUCT INFORMATION

Can the Skycamp be mounted on my car/truck? What kind of rack do I need?

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 Rhino Racks Thule, Rola 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 75kg, and they should be at least 73cm apart .
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 Rhino Racks to let you choose the best racks for YOUR vehicle.

Please keep the Skycamp’s weight in mind approx. 70 kgs when selecting a roof rack.

How much does it weigh? What is the weight limit?

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

How can 4 people fit in the Skycamp if my cross bars’ weight limit is only 75 kg?

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 75 kg , 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 than the dynamic weight load.

 

How easy are your roof top tents to mount and unmount?

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 (Skycamp 4X – 70kg) and (Skycamp 2X – 55kg) 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

How many sizes does the Skycamp come in?

The Skycamp comes in two sizes (Skycamp 2X and Skycamp 4X, however the shells are the same dimensions, Skycamp 4X has the floor extension) that fits on most vehicles’ roof racks. For the exact dimensions and mounting instructions, please click HERE

Can the Skycamp be mounted on a pickup truck bed?

Will Skycamp fit on my car?

Roof top tents are designed to be fitted on SUVs and other large vehicle (better performance and more visually pleasing). We recommend using our tents on larger vehicles, but there are a lot of roof top tents users with small sedans a well. There are several online forums dedicated to this. However, our tents should not be mounted on mini or subcompact cars.

The main requirements are that your roof rack and cross bars have a dynamic weight load of 75kg or more, and that your cross bars be at least 76cm apart
