Roofnest Embraces Electric Vehicles with Next-Gen Rooftop Tents

Roofnest, the largest rooftop tent brand in the United States, reveals plans to
support the electrification of mass-market vehicles by optimizing its future line of rooftop tents for electric vehicles (EV) and rewarding customers who buy EVs. By continuing to prioritize the use of lightweight materials and enhancing aerodynamic efficiency in future products, Roofnest is fully committed to being the definitive rooftop brand for electric vehicles.

Starting Earth Day, Friday, April 22, 2022, electric-vehicle owners who purchase a Roofnest
rooftop tent can receive up to a $225 rebate.* This rebate bridges the gap between today’s EVs
and Roofnest’s future EV-optimized tent models, incentivizing current EV owners to adopt
rooftop camping and reflecting Roofnest’s appreciation of early EV adopters in the
adventure-vehicle market.

Climate change is deeply concerning to Roofnest and its employees. In late 2021, nearly 1,000
homes were destroyed in the wildfire that ripped through Boulder County, Colorado, home of
Roofnest. In the wake of that fire, Roofnest and its employees knew they had to do their part to
counteract climate change and help prevent future wildfires.

“We at Roofnest believe the future of camping is electric,” said Roofnest Founder Tim Nickles.
“But while we work on our next generations of tents, we wanted to thank those who have
already made the switch to electric, as we gear up for Roofnest’s EV future.”

Virtually every major global automaker has committed to electrifying their entire portfolio in the
coming decade. Similarly, Roofnest has already begun designing its next generation of rooftop
tents optimized for electric vehicles.

Through the development of more efficient and sustainable products, Roofnest aims to make camping and outdoor exploration more accessible for drivers of electrified vehicles, while simultaneously encouraging more people to adopt EVs.

“Compared to a traditional rooftop tent, Roofnest’s hard-shell rooftop tents are a natural fit with
EVs, due to their lower aerodynamic impact. What’s more, many Roofnest models feature a dedicated mount location for flexible solar panels, allowing Roofnest owners to power their camp gear from the sun,” said Turner Sessions, Roofnest Product Development Lead at Roofnest.

“Roofnest’s next generation of tents will further enhance EV owners’ ability to camp and explore nature with a minimal environmental impact. This helps ensure generations to come will continue to enjoy our world’s natural spaces.”

Future generations of Roofnest tents will be developed to meet the needs of EV drivers and their vehicles, enabling EV owners to experience camping with a low-impact rooftop tent that’s ideal for any EV, from hatchbacks and crossovers to trucks and SUVs.
