Does it fit my vehicle?

Most vehicles can handle the tent weight on their roof structure. The issue comes in the actual strength of the roof rack cross bars. Many vehicles come with a stock cross bar. Please ensure it is capable of handling the minimum of 150lb (see your vehicle’s User Manual for this information). The listed weight is the “dynamic” load (load allowed while in motion or traveling). Some people may refer to a “static” load; this simply refers to the weight the unit may bear while parked and not in motion. Static load capacities are up to 10 times the dynamic load depending on the weight distribution and the style of roof rack. Every vehicle is different so we usually recommend purchasing some type of aftermarket roof rack to ensure it’s strong enough for the job and makes installation much easier. 

Here are the specifications for roof rack mounting:

  • Min width (side to side) 24″
  • Max width (side to side) 48″ or more depending on the length of the cross bars
  • Minimum of 2 cross bars required (3 for rough roads)
  • Min length (front to back) 30″
  • Max length (front to back) 60″
  • Recommended distance between front and rear roof rack cross bar is 32″-48″
  • Min distance between car roof and roof cross bar is 4″ for easier install
  • Cross bars need to support minimum of 150 lb when in transit. (Consult your owners manual for this specification)
  • Max recommended static load capacity (while parked) 550 lb
  • You may choose to remove the ladder from the tent when traveling to reduce weight on your roof rack if necessary

If you still have question please email us at Please ensure you have firmly attached the tent to your vehicle (all bolts are intact and secure) and check it often the first 25 miles and then check every trip.

    Love it. Keeps me off the ground on a dry bed. I went camping in the desert recently and I loved just driving and then when I was ready to stop and sleep I popped it up and crawled in. Some of the others in my group had barely started setting up their tents and I was already done. So convenient and easy and totally worth having. Thanks Silverwing!

  2. Tbone

    Great roof mounted tent. I mostly use my Silverwing tent for hunting. It is great to arrive at hunting camp late and quickly pop up the tent and get a good nights sleep. I also like it because I can put all my bedding and sleeping gear in the tent and it’s always ready to go. Fun and very useful product. I have used this in all types of weather too.

  3. Trebor

    My Silverwing is the best tent I have owned. I like to be up off the ground. The mattress is a little hard for my liking so I added a memory foam mattress. My pillows and sleeping bags all fit when tent is closed. Best camping nights sleep you will find!! Yes I recommend Silverwing.

  4. Jessica LeNeave

    I just took a cross country road trip with my seven year old son and our dog. It was absolutely perfect. So easy to set up and break down as a single mom. Held up in insane winds one night and a crazy downpour another night. This will stay mounted for many more adventures to come. All of my friends are now talking about it after seeing pictures on Facebook. No regrets at all and the company delivered quick!! Can’t say enough about how much I love it.
