Description

Like many of the James Baroud rooftop tents the Explorer can be opened in about 30sec and closed by a single person in less than 90sec. The 360º views are sure to please when resting atop its comfortable mattress.

Description

James Baroud rooftop tents are handmade in Portugal with a shell made of glass reinforced polyester and a Gelcoat finish. This one is much like the Evasion with the addition of the cargo tray on top. It has a large recess with attachment points all around to tie down anything you deem necessary. It has 2 air slots with dust filters to improve ventilation and keep condensation down. James Baroud puts more effort into forming these shells to be aerodynamic and pleasing to the eye. The ladder comes with a storage bag and can be stored inside the tent when folded. The walls are made with 6 aluminized layers that reflect solar rays and while UV and water resistant still remain breathable. All seams are doubled and the walls fit under the hardshell for 100% waterproofing and wind resistance up to 75mph. In the ceiling you get a gear net and a solar powered fan to prevent condensation and pull out excess heat if necessary. They also include a removable and rechargeable light with battery level indicator.

Why we love James Baroud Roof Top Tents

Durability, Performance & Industry Leading Warranty

James Baroud has been the leader in this category for decades because of their quality, unmatched features and attention to detail.  These tents are hand made in Portugal and utilize a proprietary aluminized polyester with acrylic coating that is 100% waterproof, breathable, UV-resistant, and solar-reflective. All windows are covered with the highest quality insect-proof netting. The outer shell of all James Baroud hard shell tents are made of three layers of fiberglass and include aerodynamic ribs to decrease wind noise and increase fuel economy.  You simply can’t find a more structurally sound and rigid tent, which is shown by their industry leading 5 years warranty on  hard shell tents, covering manufacturer's defects and failure of the tent fabric, shell, and strut mechanism. 

Unparalleled Features

James Baroud is the only manufacturer to feature a solar powered exhaust fan in their hard shell tents to reduce condensation. The ventilation fan is completely waterproof and can run on 24 hours on a single charge. Additional air vents with integrated dust filters provide air circulation inside the tent while in transit.  All hard shell tents also feature a removable LED rechargeable flashlight with a reading and spot mode. The light is made of a tough polycarbonate and includes a charge indicator and USB charging cord. 

Simplicity

Rooftop tents come in all shapes and sizes, but James Baroud stays true with their sleek design and functionality.  We love the ease of use with patented gas strut-assisted opening - less than 90 seconds to deploy and equally easy to close.  Inside the tent you will find a storage pocket for stowing your belongings as well as an additional ceiling storage cargo net for larger gear. Mounting points on both sides allow you to easily access your tent by a specially-designed telescoping aluminum ladder. The unique design automatically adjusts to the height of your vehicle so you can quickly access shelter.

Comfortability

Portugal is known for their textiles and one key feature that clearly sets it apart from the competition when customers tour our showroom is the mattress.  All James Baroud roof top tents feature a thick, moisture-resistant 3" high-density foam mattress. The rooftop tent mattress includes a quality zippered cover for easy removal and cleaning. 

Assembly & Installation

Your tent arrives ready to install.  Fully assembled and wrapped in a beautiful sleek James Baroud storage cover that let’s you know you made the right decision from the minute you open the box.  The hard shell roof top tents feature reinforced mounting rails integrated into the lower shell/platform of the tent, and include installation brackets allowing easy direct mounting to most aftermarket roof rack systems.

**PLEASE NOTE** Due to high demand there can be up to a 6-8 week wait for some rooftop tents as they are custom ordered from Portugal. Orders will be completed as received. Please call for the most up to date availability.
