The next level in rooftop tents: more space, more comfort, more adventures

On top of the world, on the top of your car. Thule Approach is a tent that makes adventure travel easier, more comfortable, and more fun. The car top tent maximizes interior space, giving you a great place to hang out in, as well as a comfortable night’s sleep. Made for rugged adventures off the beaten path, this rooftop tent is equally great for local explorations or weekend getaways with family and friends. Transform your vehicle into a home away from home and live the van-life experience no matter what you drive—SUV, sedan, truck, or hatchback.

Comfort close to nature

Thule Approach will elevate your next adventure, quite literally, since you’ll be sleeping high above the ground. The panoramic windows on the ceiling and walls will bring you closer to nature than you have ever been! Thoroughly tested for durability and longevity, Thule Approach is ready for your next trip, wherever you want to go.

Quick set up for easy getaways

Thule Approach is made for ease of use. Innovative mounting brackets allow you to install the tent on your roof in just minutes—half the time of traditional rooftop tents. The mounting brackets also lock the tent to your roof rack for added security. Once you arrive at your destination, the rooftop tent is quick to set up – from parked to deployed in under 3 minutes.
