The ROAM Vagabond is a durable foldout rooftop tent that sleeps up to 2 people on top of a high-density foam mattress. This all-weather tent can be easily installed on a variety of roof racks and takes minutes to pitch, wherever you find yourself at the end of the day. The tent is made of rugged polycotton ripstop fabric with a robust diamond weaved nylon rainfly. Enter your new home away from home via a secure yet lightweight telescoping aluminum ladder. The 2 skylights and surrounding windows can be unzipped for maximum views of the night sky and morning sunrise.

Weather-Tight Tent for any Condition

Having a weather-resistant tent lets you rest easy knowing the elements will stay outside. That is why ROAM used a 280g PU coated poly cotton ripstop tent body. What does that mean? It means when you are in a weather situation you are gonna be good. Want some extra tent insulation? We got that too!

Diamond Plate Insulated Bed Base

Every home has a sure foundation, so why wouldn't your tent? Even if you need to use it as a scouting platform, she will hold strong and it will help insulate your tent through the night. Every ROAM Vagabond tent also comes with an included gear hammock for storing gear outside of your home away from home.

Dual Rainfly Skylights

The two clear skylight windows makes it possible to get light from above into your tent even if it is raining. It also makes for great star gazing at night.

The MOST Comfortable Mattress in a RTT

Camping doesn’t have to be roughing it. Sleep on a mattress that is comparable to your bed at home. A 3 inch high-density foam mattress, that has a weather-resistant bottom fabric, makes your nights sleeping in the woods feel like a 5-star hotel.

Boot Bags

Included with your Vagabond purchase is a pair of boot bags that attach to the base of the tent so you don't have to bring your dirty shoes inside.

Rubberized Silent Zippers

The last thing you want is trying to sleep with the sound of endless wind chimes throughout the night. This is why ROAM uses rubber for all of their zipper pullers.

1" Alluminum Frame

Having a burly frame keeps the tent body tight and wind noise to a minimum at night. In the case that it snows over night, it also insures that your tent won't collapse on itself.

Anti-Condensation Mat

Included with every ROAM tent, having an anti-condensation layer between your mattress and the base of your tent prevents mold and mildew build up.

3 Layer Windows / Doors

The windows on each side of every ROAM tent do a lot more than just provide you an amazing view of the great outdoors. Each window also has 3 layers to provide the upmost versatility for any adventure. The exterior layer provides a water proof closing, as well as being able to be propped up as a window awning. The middle layer is a tight weaved masquito window, allowing the maximum air flow while still keeping the tiniest of critters out. The interior layer provides another weatherproof layer that can be easily closed up from inside the tent in the middle of the night for privacy, or if an unexpecting storm rolls through. Each layer is able to be open and closed with ROAM's high quality zippers.

Interior Storage

Each ROAM Vagabond tent includes multiple internal storage pockets for you to keep your phone, keys, flashlight, etc. within reach. There are also clips for you to attach the aformentioned gear hammock inside the tent to store a jacket / clothes, etc, up and out of the way.

Proprietary Black Telescoping Ladder

Every ROAM Vagabond RTT is now equipped with a proprietary black telescoping ladder that makes deploying and putting away your Vagabond tent easy, even by yourself.

Upgrade your ROAM ladder with ROAM's Soft Step add on (sold separately).
