The car is a versatile means of transport and the Germans his favorite means of transportation. Unlike aircraft, ships and railways, the car is largely independent in terms of time and distance. You are flexible and unbound. This is an advantage if you decide to do a camping holiday or a road trip. By car you can flexibly organize your trip. Even more independent is the use of a tent. So you are not bound to accommodations and the availability of beds. This could become a challenge, especially in remote regions. In addition to the classic tent, there is a roof tent or a rear tent for the vehicle, especially for the car.
What is a roof tent?
A roof tent is, as the name suggests, a tent, which is mounted on the car roof. Through the use of roof racks, a floor plate can be mounted on which the tent is then set up and secured. The tent can then be reached via a ladder. Depending on the size of the vehicle and the available roof area, the size of the roof tent may vary. There are different types of tent, such as the Aufstellzelt, the igloo tent or the pointed roof tent.
What are the advantages of a roof tent?
The advantage of a roof tent is that you do not have to worry about the ground. Only the car should be parked reasonably level. Everything else is independent of the ground. Thus, one has no problems with a damp or frozen ground. Furthermore, the roof tent provides some protection against animals that move on the ground. The roof tent can be transported in its folded state on the car roof. Thus eliminates a tiresome packaging and clearing in the trunk. Also, this variant saves space, since no storage space is needed from the trunk. What could also be a disadvantage for a wet tent.
What are the disadvantages of a roof tent?
The disadvantage of a roof tent is that the roof can not be used for a roof rack. Since only the roof area is available, the space is usually less than other tent types. The accessibility to the tent is via a ladder, which can be challenging especially for the physically challenged. In addition, constant contact with the vehicle can occasionally lead to damage. If you use such a tent regularly contact with the vehicle is often not enough and thus there is a chance of scratches and other damage.
What is a stern tent?
A rear tent is attached to the trunk of the vehicle. When the trunk is open, the tent is mounted so that the trunk and the adjoining tent provide accommodation.
What are the advantages of a rear tent?
The advantage of the rear tent is that the space is usually larger than the roof tent. Especially if you use a large station wagon or a large SUV for the rear tent. Furthermore, the trunk can be used effectively and things can still be reached at any time. By using the rear tent, the use of a roof rack is still possible.
What are the disadvantages of a rear tent?
The disadvantage is that you need a suitable substrate that is flat and dry. The rear tent takes appropriate space in the trunk to complete. A damp tent in the trunk can have a negative effect on the interior climate and other objects in the trunk.
