Our Backroadz SUV Tent is designed with a universal vehicle sleeve to accommodate virtually all CUV’s, SUV’s and minivans

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.

Yes. For the initial set-up however, we do recommend having assistance.

Yes. To ensure the best fit possible, we recommend our larger SUV Tents (82000, 84000, 13100, and 19100).

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.

Please refer to the Warranty section on the website.

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

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.

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.

A seam sealer is not necessary. Our rainflies and truck tent floors 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.

There is a one-year manufacturer defect warranty.  Please consult the Warranty section on the website.

    We needed a new tent for car camping as the popup tent we previously had been using had reached the end of its useful life. We had no idea tents specifically made to attach to a SUV existed, found this one, and took a chance that it would work with our RAM Promaster City van. We did our initial backyard test setup today and it went well. It fits very nicely on the van even with the swing out doors versus the typical lift gate, attached easily to the roof rack and wheels, and gives far more useable and stand up space than we had in the past. We were a little concerned when only the first hoop was in place as the wind was blowing it sideways but worked it out. Less than 30 minutes for the first time setup seemed pretty good and no serious problems getting everything in place.
    Two weeks of field testing next month in state and national forest campgrounds but so far it seems like a great solution for our camping style.

    I have been tent camping for over 40 years. I understand tent set up and carefully following instructions. This tent is the worst purchase I have ever made. Purchased in April 2023 and used twice. It took over an hour to set up both times. It leaked, poles broke, zippers would not function properly. Basically a waste of 300. Please do not buy this one.

    This is a fair weather tent ONLY. It leaks terribly. I sewed for Marmot Mountainworks years ago and I know good construction when I see it. This is not it. (We bought from Amazon sight unseen never again!) The tent seams are supposed to be sealed they are not. The floor does not lay down flat and thus rain collects on the seams (as it drips from the inadequate rain fly) and leak. The door zipper leaks because the door fly is totally inadequate. The floor is cheap tarp material and forms holes very easily. When I complained about this they sent a repair kit. NO replace the floor material! The poles seems like they are too long the upper one always curves funny does not bow out like it should. The fly pole broke. Piece of crap!

    Just wanted to let you folks know that the SUV tent that we bought from you guys worked wonderfully in a crazy storm that hit northern Idaho just yesterday with torrential downpour sideways winds sideways rain debris, flash flooding thunder andlightning in crazy weather and we didn’t get wet, even though we had to hold on to everything the Napier tent did what it was supposed to do. Just thought you might want to know that thank you.

    I was excited about this tent. I used it one time for two nights and I experienced some rainy weather. The tent leaked horribly and left puddles inside the tent despite having the rain fly on. Definitely not fun when all your bedding gets soaked. One of the screen zippers was sewn into the seam so I couldn’t even open the screen and the poles already show signs of rust where they connected. This isn’t a cheap tent and I was definitely surprised at how poorly this was made.

    Well, the second time I used the tent and one of the poles broke at the supposed steel junction points. Thank goodness a person camping nearby had some duct tape to keep it from failing completely. Not happy with this any way I can get support or a new pole?

    I would have given my backroadz tent 5 stars until I used it in the rain. Very disappointed. The seams at the bottom leaked all the way around and water poured in like a waterfall from the sleeve area over my hatch. Thankfully I had 2 pool noodles to put between my car bumper and the tent to keep the water from flowing inside the tent. I use magnets to hold the sleeve against my car. Customer service was not much help. I sent every picture they requested and they did say the water should not have come in but they provided no solutions. This was an extravagant purchase for me and I feel like I have just wasted my money. I can only use it when there’s no rain in the forecast.

    Do you make a smaller SUV tent?
    I’m single and this one is way to big for me.
    I think on that was just a bit higher than the tailgate would appropriate!

    Good customer service but…after 2 failures on the original tent: the seam of the tent skin leaked water and then the collar on the tent pole deformed and would not hold its fiberglass insert anymore. I took our Napier Backroads tent out camping this weekend using the new tent pole and tent skin Napier Customer Service so kindly provided. This is only the 4th time we have used it as we had purchased it only a little more than a year ago. In conditions with no rain and very little wind – but sheltered in trees – the new pole snapped and splintered, which then shredded the new tent skin. ugh. This is laughable if it weren’t so frustrating.
    We appreciate the design as it fit very well around our vehicle and our camper but I can’t think of a worse example of poor materials on a tent. Everything was sub-standard and it showed in its poor performance. I send this to your company in hopes that Napier will take my comments in to consideration and FIX THE #%@! problems. I think it only fair that I post this review so that others won’t waste their money.
