How do I know which tent will fit my SUV?

The “Fit My Ride” tool on our homepage will help you determine which tent will best fit your vehicle. Our SUV Tents are designed with a universal vehicle sleeve to accommodate all CUV’s, SUV’s, and minivans for a custom fit.

How does the sleeve on the SUV Tent secure to the vehicle?

The universal vehicle sleeve has an elastic band at the end creating a custom fit to your vehicle. The adjustable wheel well and trunk straps ensure a snug fit to your vehicle and the fabric flaps on the inside of the sleeve help seal any minor gaps caused by a curvy vehicle.

Can one-person set-up a Napier SUV Tent? 

Yes. For the initial set-up however, we do recommend having assistance. Due to the long pole design of the Sportz Dome-To-Go (86000) and the Backroadz SUV Tent (13100 and 19100), it may be slightly more challenging to complete set-up solo.

Will the SUV Tent fit on my SUV that has barn doors?
Yes. To ensure the best fit possible, we recommend our larger SUV Tents (82000, 84000, 13100, and 19100).

Will the SUV Tents work with a truck that has a camper shell/cap on it?
Yes. As long as the height from the ground to the highest point of the cap window/door does not exceed 80”, SUV Tents are compatible.

Will the SUV Tents work with a small enclosed trailer (i.e. a teardrop trailer)?

Yes, as long as the circumference of the trailer opening does not exceed 210”.

If it’s raining, what do I do with the canopy?

Angle one of the awning poles so that the water will run off and not pool. Angle the bottom of the pole one way and peg out the other way. If you are leaving the campsite, it’s best to set-up camp for rain, just in case. Put away equipment, zip up all tent windows and doors, use the rainfly. Zip or roll up the awning. If it’s raining a lot, we would suggest not to use the canopy.

How can I make sure that my tent is the most water resistant that it can be?
Our tents already have a water-resistant coating on them. However, the coating may wear down over time and you may want to spray a water repellent coating onto the tent and rainfly after a few years of use.

Do I need to use a seam sealer on my tent?
A seam sealer is not necessary. Our rainflies  have taped seams to guard against water entry. For additional protection and product maintenance, you may wish to use a seam sealant on your tent. Please note that water drops through the needle holes along the seams is common with all tents and is not a manufacturer’s defect.

How do I find a retailer near me?

    Great tent and great price! Bought it for a September camping vacation in Cape Cod. With COVID-19, I only felt safe camping with my stuff, breathing fresh air. It had been 30 years since we last camped and I enjoyed sleeping in the SUV on my folding memory foam mattress looking at the stars and listening to the coyotes. Perfect and looking forward to fall camping.
