  • Femkes Rooftop Tents

    Specialist Motorcaravan Services is delighted to be partnering with Femkes rooftop tents as the UK centre for Sales & Rental.

    Who am I?

    Let me start by introducing myself. My name is Femke, a Dutch fan of the outdoors and traveler in heart and soul. Femke's rooftop tents are super easy roof top tents for people who want to explore beautiful places quickly, easily and comfortably with any passenger car, large or small.

     

     

     

    Ready to join us on top?

     

    Has the thought of sleeping on top of your car ever crossed your mind? It's fun and really easy to do, consider this:

     

    Just put your pillow and blanket in the rooftop tent and off you go.

     

    Let the adventure begin.

     

    And yes, this tent fits on every car with crossbars, even really small cars.

     

    The birds are singing, the sun is shining, the wind is blowing gently through the tent, your mind wanders off to life outdoors............cycling, climbing, hiking.

     

     

    Which Tent for You?

    Rent or Buy ?

    All tents are equipped with mosquito netting, mattress, fixed canopies, a mounting kit and a ladder that can be extended if desired. Under the mattress is an anti-condensation mat (3D mesh) or a Froli system.

    The MILES, HOPPER and KHOSI are available both for sale and to rent. If you don't have any storage, consider renting a tent, however once you own a rooftop tent, you will use it more often than you think.

     

    If you do have a garage or storage area then we would recommend you buy one. You can then mount the RTT on your roof any time the Sun breaks through and head off to enjoy the great outdoors!

     

    Femke's Philosophy:

    It is my ambition to be able to supply a roof tent that is 100% sustainable. This is currently unfeasible. It requires a lot more research & development. But for now the first step has been made: the 'shell' of the tents is made of ABS. This, unlike polyester /fiberglass, is 100% recyclable.

    Next on the list is a canvas which uses as little chemicals treatment as possible, yet still performs in bad weather.

     

    Strong & smart

     

    · The rooftop tents are strong, solid and cleverly put together with handy gadgets & extras, such as ventilation grilles, drip rails and a sturdy ladder.

    - Everything can be replaced so no waste when something breaks or tears.
