James Baroud Explorer Roof Top Tent
The Explorer roof top tent opens via a full pop-up mechanism to maximize living area inside the tent, and features a storage cutout on the outside of the tent which is useful for stowing lightweight items. This integrated storage tray can secure an additional 65 lbs of cargo and includes tie-down points.
To maximize airflow there are entrances on both sides of the tent, and for extreme conditions, ventilation can also be assisted by the solar-powered ventilation system. Access to the tent is easily gained by using the folding ladder that comes standard with all James Baroud roof top tents and attaches to either side of the tent.

Additional Feature Details
We guarantee you won't find a higher-quality, better-performing fabric on any roof top tent. All James Baroud tents utilize a proprietary aluminized polyester with acrylic coating that is 100% waterproof, breathable, UV-resistant, and solar-reflective. All windows are covered with quality insect-proof netting.
One of the most important features of a roof top tent is the part you sleep on: the mattress. All James Baroud roof top tents feature a thick, moisture-resistant 3" high-density foam mattress. Mattresses have a heavy duty zippered cover for easy removal and cleaning.
All tents include a removable storage pocket for stowing keys, wallets, headlamps, clothing or anything else you need to quickly stash inside the tent. Hard shell tents include an additional large ceiling storage net.
Patented gas strut-assisted opening makes set up incredibly fast and easy - less than 30 seconds, and nearly as quick to collapse back down.
Hard shell tents are simple to install. Roof top tents feature reinforced mounting rails integrated into the lower shell/platform of the tent, and include installation brackets allowing easy direct mounting to most aftermarket roof rack systems.
Entry to the tent is easily gained by using the specially-designed telescoping aluminum ladder. This unique design automatically adjusts to the height of your vehicle and prevents bending while you're in the tent.
James Baroud employs a former Dakkar Rally driver to conduct testing on each tent. All James Baroud tents have passed a grueling durability test, and you can sleep in confidence knowing that James Baroud tents are waterproof and tested in winds up to 60 mph. For added comfort in extreme temperatures, add a Comfort Mat under your mattress (see Accessories).
The outer shell of all James Baroud hard shell tents (available in 3 colors) utilizes fiberglass-fortified polyester. Aerodynamic ribs on the upper shell help decrease wind noise and increase fuel economy as well as provide additional structural strength and rigidity.
All hard shell tents feature a bright 15-LED rechargeable flashlight. Made of tough polycarbonate with an integrated belt clip, the light may be removed from the tent and carried around camp to illuminate your way wherever you go. Includes a charge indicator LED as well as a USB charging cord.
James Baroud hardshell tents feature a unique electric ventilation fan powered by a sealed solar panel on top of the tent shell. The ventilation fan is completely waterproof and can run on 24 hours on a single charge. Additional air vents with integrated dust filters on each side of the tent provide air circulation inside while the tent is closed.
James Baroud roof top tents come with the most inclusive warranty in the market: 5 years for hardshell tents. Warranty covers manufacturer's defects and failure of the tent fabric, shell, and strut mechanism. James Baroud tents are designed to allow replacement of any part of the tent by your local authorized dealer- so just get in touch with us here at Rhino Adventure Gear should you encounter any issues with your roof top tent.
