What is the recommended space between my vehicle’s crossbars?
The spacing on your cross bars is dependent on the model and size of tent you have. See the below chart:
High Country 55”: 32” – 36”
High Country 63”: 36” – 42”
All other tents (approx. 85” long): 42” – 48”
Does each FSR RTT come with a ladder?
Yes, all Freespirit rooftop tents come with a 7.5' telescoping ladder as pictured.
How do FSR RTTs handle condensation?
Here are a few ways our tents are superior condensation eliminators.
First, the base of our tents feature aluminum slates, which allow for extra breathability. Other tents in the industry use aluminum sheeting which promotes condensation.
Second, Our tents use a foam flooring called EPE (expanded poly-ethylene) which helps to eliminate condensation that normally forms between your mattresses and tent frame.
Third, our premium Tri-Layer insulated tent bodies were designed to seamlessly manage moisture away from fabric.
When in doubt, air it out. Deploy your RTT and open the windows to let nature take care of nature.
How does Tri-Layer fabric avoid extreme heat?
The Tri-layer technology was designed to perform in year-round extreme conditions. In hot, dry conditions, the inside of our Tri-layer tents are actually cooler than temperatures directly in the sun.
When it comes to humidity, the most technical fabric in the world is useless if you don’t have good air flow. All of our tents are designed with oversized doors and windows and both the screens and doors completely open up giving you the airflow needed to keep the tent cool.
Additionally, all of our rainflies are coated with a special silver coating. This coating repels the sun’s rays and gives you a U/V protection factor of 50+.
Last, we’ve designed the tents so that the rainfly doesn’t touch the body of the tent. By leaving a gap in between the body and the fly prevents the heat from the rainfly affecting the body fabric of the tent.
Is the hardware for mounting the tent included?
Yes. The mounting kit is typically located in the front pocket of the tent along with a tool kit and a few other replacement parts.
The standard mounting kit does not require any tools to put it on.
We’ve replaced the standard M8 nut with a knob style nut that you can put on and tighten by hand.
