Our SUV Tents are designed with a universal vehicle sleeve to accommodate all CUV’s, SUV’s, and minivans for a custom fit.
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.
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.

When I happened upon this tent on line I could not believe my eyes. It was the answer to my dreams. I have a 2011 Toyota Tacoma pickup and was concerned that this tent meant for SUVs would not fit my high rise Leer cap. Joanne Dey of Customer Service assured me that the tent would cover the open hatch on the cap. When I received the 36 pound tent the bag handle ripped out when I lifted it. The handle had been sewn in upside down. I called Joanne and she sent me out another. We reinforced the ripped handle and were very happy to have two bags to repack the tent, fly and poles into because once unwrapped the tent is impossible to repack. The rig received the acid test this summer in Wyoming. It was a baptism of fire. The first night we were hit by a furious storm that battered the west wall of the tent. The wall ballooned inward. The floor lifted. We laid our bodies against the wall to counter the force of the storm. The tent held. It’s an extremely high profile tent but it stayed put. No seams ripped. No poles bent. Not even a guy line pulled. The only problem was the leaking along the wall that shrouds the back of the truck. Specifically, the triangular panels of uncoated nylon in the lower corners on each side. A later application of tent waterproofing cured this problem. The tent fly does not cover the wall attached to the vehicle at all. This is a terrible oversight. The shroud is waterproof as are the lower portion of the tent walls on three sides but these low, needlessly decorative triangular patches are not and they leak. They should be waterproof. There was also some leaking in places along the ground seam. Also, the seal around the back of the truck was not tight enough to keep the rain completely at bay. Rain quickly pooled in the trough between the hatch and the tent requiring frequent dumping which tended to run down over those triangles and into the tent. Also, if your hatch has sharp corners as mine has you will want to pad the corners to prevent them from piercing the shroud. We spent a long night mopping up and reinforcing the walls with our bodies. This was a horrific storm that returned day after day. What would be the point of disconnecting the tent from the truck every time it rained or might rain? This would defeat the purpose. Once the waterproofing was applied the tent remained dry for the remainder of the five week trip. This tent is a truly amazing piece of engineering that needs just a touch of tweaking to be perfect.August 2, 2021
This tent does it all. We love it. First time we set it up took 15 minutes. The second time we set it up took 10. Made very well. We have a Cadillac SRX and it perfect. Great product. Be carful I did not realize it came with and without a screen section and when mine came it was the one without. Want the one with. By the time I realized it was not right one it was to late to exchange. The 82000 is without and 84000 is with. LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!June 18, 2021
Fits our grand dodge caravan and camped in it on a farm for over a month! It’s great! Creates extra room for us to change, cook, stay dry etc!
Leaks in the left and right hand corners car sides on the seams and the tunnel that connects from the tent to the car can flap around quite a bit. We tend to tie the excess in to stop the noise.
This tent has also endured 50kph wind gusts multiple times!!May 20, 2021
We initially set up the tent in the front yard. It set up easily enough and just fit our full size, Chevy Silverado with shell. The zippers are well constructed and the rain fly is heavier than most. We used the tent in Colorado for three nights in July, and had quite a bit of rain one night. The rain fly does not cover the sleeve, and the instructions suggest the sleeve be taken off the vehicle when heavy rain is expected. I would heed this advice. We had taken the fly off during some heavy rain during the day, but overnight a storm came in and created a lake on the sleeve which eventually leaked – however we had the inside of the tent zipped up, and the shell window closed, so no moisture got in to the bedding, and not much in the tent itself. However, the bottom seams on two corners also leaked. We will seam seal the tent and remember to take down the sleeve in the future. Overall, happy with the build and quality and it was handy in good weather. When rainy – you”ll need to take off the sleeve which will make access to the vehicle unprotected from the rain. We had some serious wind which tore up a few tarps, but the the was fully staked and we used the guy lines, and it had no trouble at all standing up to the wind.July 27, 2020
Excellent after sales service in case something is wrong.September 8, 2018
Finally got to use it last week. The plan was to sleep in the back of our SUV and use the tent for all our gear a place for our dog to sleep. All worked as planned. Took us awhile to put it up, but we’ll get better. We camped in the AZ desert and it was 48 degrees at night, so we put the rainfly on and it was cozy. The only thing I don’t like is how high the bottom is – I trip on it, but that’s me. We are in our 60s and have come full circle back to a tent and this was the best choice for us.February 6, 2018
This was a bit of a game changer for me. First, this tent is huge. Slated to sleep at least 4, it’s the headroom that I love the most. I can stand up and still have a few feet above me. That means no stooping to get dressed, and no smacking your head on a hanging lantern. Next is the nifty part – it hooks up to your car. There is durable, stretchy tube that makes the back of your car part of the tent for a massive amount of extra space for storage, organization, or even sleeping if you want to fold down all the seats.January 11, 2018
Even though it was 25 degrees outside it didn’t stop the excitement of seeing the tent attached to the Suburban. My son’s were so excited to see what it would look like and how fun camping would be with the Napier SUV/Minivan tent. We like to do a lot of outdoor events and activities so the Napier SUV/Minivan tent is great for all the events that we love.December 11, 2017
SUV camping is different. And Napier Outdoors makes it different and fun too. Connecting a tent to our Jeep Commander is a big adjustment, but it allows for new improvements to our camp setup that we never thought about before.December 11, 2017
Our newest addition to the family means that this summer we will be camping with an infant and three children ranging in ages 4-10, which makes choosing the right gear for our adventure even more important. The idea of an SUV tent that would attach directly to my car and allow us additional sleeping space inside the cargo area, plus easy access to our gear, sounded extremely convenient when camping with kids in tow.December 11, 2017
