Roofnest Introduces New Rooftop Tent Model to its 2019 Product Line

The lightweight and low-profile Sandpiper model also features an aluminum gear rack capable of holding up to 100 lbs of gear

Roofnest, the leading provider of hardshell rooftop tents and accessories, is proud to announce the latest model in its product line. The Sandpiper ($2,795 MSRP) has a low-profile aerodynamic shape and features a built-in aluminum gear rack that can hold up to 100 lbs on its roof, perfect for holding bikes, kayaks, paddleboards, or other gear. The Sandpiper sleeps two adults comfortably and features an ultra-comfortable 7cm High Density Foam mattress.

The Sandpiper features a sleek ABS-Fiberglass constructed case resulting in a stronger, more durable, and lightweight product. The roof rack is constructed of tubular, cross-braced aluminum rails, aluminum flanges, and aluminum plates reinforcing the rack and securely bonding it to the tent shell. With gear mounted safely and securely, the Sandpiper is ready for any adventure.

“Our goal has always been to offer the most comfortable, durable, and streamlined rooftop tents at the best value for our customers,” says Roofnest founder Tim Nickles. “With its lightweight, low profile design and amazing gear-carrying capabilities, we anticipate the Sandpiper to be one of the most in-demand rooftop tents in 2019.”

Like all Roofnest models, the Sandpiper mounts to almost any type vehicle roof-rack with crossbars. Once mounted, simply undo the four closure buckles and give it a push – pneumatic gas struts do the rest – and the tent eases up to full extension. The Sandpiper’s spacious doors and windows (featuring full zip openings of both mesh and canvas on all four sides) allow for easy entry/exit from any angle and excellent ventilation and views. An 8’ telescoping ladder is also included.

The Sandpiper also comes with feature-rich pockets that can be clipped to the inside or outside of the tent to store shoes, headlamps, water bottles, or other items. Also included is an Anti-Condensation mat, providing additional support and air circulation to lessen condensation during cold nights. For extra warmth in winter, Roofnest offers the Ptarmigan Tent Insulation, an easy-to-install synthetic insulation system, significantly extending the comfort range of the tent.

The Sandpiper will be in stock early to mid-February 2019, although customers are encouraged to place their order now to ensure availability. For more information or to place an order, visit the company’s website.
