3 Season Tents
4 Season Tents
Rooftop tents have been a popular way to camp in many countries around the world for years because of the ease, safety, transportability, and comfort. While car-top tenting may be a relatively new idea to the outdoor enthusiasts of Canada, the crew at Treeline Outdoors experienced and recognized the advantages, and decided to be the first to bring rooftop tenting and all of it’s advantages to Canadian campers. Since then, this style of camping has become increasingly popular, and it’s no surprise. Rooftop tenting comes with a host of advantages, but you’re here comparing rooftop tents, so you already know that! Let’s have a look at some reasons that you may want to take your camping to a whole new level, literally!
Safety, security, and comfort. When comparing car-top tents to standard ground shelters, the differences in these categories are considerable. Treeline tents are erected between one to two metres above the ground and secured to a rack on the roof of your vehicle, or the box of your truck. Rooftop tents are accessed by a ladder, giving you a safe and secure place to sleep above crawling bugs, venomous snakes and other predatory wildlife. Choosing the right rooftop tent affords you a comfortable and warm rest off of the cold, uneven, hard, and wet ground below. When comparing our car-top tents to the traditional style tent, you will find that the grade is similar to that of a heavy-duty canvas tent, providing a long-lasting, high-quality material, and excellent protection from rainy, windy, and snowy climates.
Ease of use and cost are two other areas that we think you will find the car-top tents come out on top in your comparison. If you are comparing roof-top tents to RV’s, you’re going to appreciate the huge cost savings that come when you choose an elevated tent. Your substantial savings start when you purchase your rooftop tent, and then continue to save you money on storage costs, fuel economy, maintenance, and wear and tear on your car, truck, or van! We like to go where we want when we want! Big, heavy, and often low to the ground RV’s can put equally big and heavy limitations on you, your truck, and where you can go! With a rooftop tent, all you need is your roof-rack equipped vehicle and your desire to explore, your shelter goes anywhere your vehicle can!
If you are choosing between a regular tent and the car-top tent, you’ll be thrilled with our rooftop style tents and how easily and quickly they can be set up and taken down! Have your shelter up or down in a matter of minutes, and there is no need to worry about the elements, your tent is designed to pack up and dry out on top of your car or truck!
Now that you’ve discovered that there are so many advantages to rooftop tent camping, let us guide you through a variety of styles, sizes, and options available from Treeline Outdoors to find out which tent is best for you.
Choosing the Right Rooftop Tent

The Tamarack Constellation isn’t our best selling rooftop for no reason, it’s one of the lightest tent design in the collection. The Tamarack is equipped with dual frost-free skylights, a rainfly, and is crafted with a tough, but light honeycomb aluminum base.
If you’re looking for a great value, have a gander at our Joshua Tree model, this entry-level, three-season rooftop tent is comparable to the Tamarack Constellation in almost every aspect. Its design is identical in size and style, but for our more simplistic outdoorsmen, we’ve eliminated just a few of the bells and whistles to bring the weight of the tent down, as well as the price.
