Rough, tough, and ready for a cross-country adventure, the Tepui Kukenam Ruggedized 3-Person 4-Season Tent is the next best thing to owning a camper van without it costing you an arm and leg !

The “ruggedized” designation means it comes with diamond-plated aluminum flooring and a condensation mat that keeps your mattress off moisture that may form on the floor, a great upgrade.
The Ruggedize  Kukenam Roof Top Tent is the toughest roof top tent on the market. It is perfect for 4x4 trailers and tough off-road rigs.

Features :
  • Two built-in screened SKY panels which allow for a great view of the stars and surrounding trees when the rainfly is removed
  • Diamond Plate Base
  • 360g Dual Stitched Fabric (40% heavier than standard models)
  • Anti-condensation mat (1/2") under the mattress
  • Fully wrapped 3/4" heavy duty internal frame
  • Heavy duty 3-bolt hinges and welded aluminum base construction
  • Extra-large internal pockets, gear anchor points, and bedding straps
The Kukenam Ruggedized SKY Roof top Tent comes with a durable Diamond Plate Base designed to resist all kinds of branch hits and other unpredictable eventualities of a heavy off road experience.

Even the dual stitched fabric is 40% heavier and stronger than in standard models! It comes with a new anti-condensation 1/2" mat under the mattress, large internal pockets, gear anchor points and bedding straps. To top this amazing features, it has two build-in screened SKY panels that will let you see a fantastic view of the stars and surroundings.

Cons :

The Tepui Kukenam is a bomber structure, with much, much heavier materials than a standard camp tent. The poles and fabric are many times thicker and stronger than even a rugged camping tent.

With its weight of ~ 172 lbs, it's not an easy task to install it on your car, and you'll need the help of a strong friend ( or two ! ).

Best Pro :

This roof top tent is crazy comfortable !

The Tepui Kukenam is very spacious, at 56 x 96 x 52 inches (L x W x H). It feels grandiose for two people, and would be sufficient for three (although snug). There are lots of pockets to organize gear, and even one large enough to stow sneakers.

Memory foam mattress :

Sleeping pads for camping have come a long way in the last few years. But they can’t match up to the memory foam mattress in the Kukenam !

Memory foam is heavy, but oh, so comfy. The Kukenam’s footprint is 56″ x 96″, which is 16″ longer than a standard mattress and between a full and queen in width. So there’s plenty of room for two adults to stretch out. Three would be a squeeze, but you can do it if you’re really friendly.

All in all, the Tepui  Ruggedized Kukenam rooftop tent would be the right choice for someone with a large SUV or a truck.
