Tuff Stuff® "Elite" Overland Roof Top Tent & Annex Room, 5 Person


The Elite series roof top tent from Tuff Stuff® Overland is the largest roof top tent we offer, suited for families of 4 or more that require additional sleeping quarters while camping. The Elite Roof Top Tent is offered with or without the lower annex room which provides additional shelter and privacy. The Elite Roof Top Tent is fully capable of sleeping 4-5 people on top and 4 additional people in the lower annex room. The Elite roof top tent also comes with 2 entry doors, 2 retractable ladders & 2 windows at the head of the tent.

The Elite tent also comes complete with a removable split wall for added privacy. We have also included 2 separate mattresses for separate bedding. This is especially nice for siblings.

The retractable ladders can also be folded away for increased space inside of the annex room.


Great question...
Rooftop tents are NOT VEHICLE SPECIFIC. No rooftop tent is compatible with any one type of vehicle. It is up to you to provide a stable roof rack that can support the weight of the tent on top, in addition to the people inside.
Heavy-duty crossbars (left to right) are necessary to support the weight of the tent, and we recommend checking your factory rail system (front to back) to confirm it will hold the weight of your tent and the people inside. Max width of your crossbar should be 3.25" or less so there are no modifications needed to use the provided brackets (shown in photos)

INSTALLATION: Your vehicle must have crossbars (left to right) that can accept 190+ Lbs, and your crossbars should be at least 50" apart for proper support.

Pickup trucks: We strongly recommend the use of a truck bed rack. We do not recommend the Elite tents to be placed on the roof of a truck.

    Freight/Delivery times are 3-5 business days from our warehouse to the Destination Terminal, Final Delivery is by appointment (this is why we require a phone number) and varies based on the distance from the Destination Terminal and the Final Delivery address (your shipping address). 

    Do NOT miss your delivery once scheduled or you will be charged for rescheduling. We get charged and will pass the charge on to you.  

    Our tents ship via LTL and will ship separately from any other items in your cart. This means, if you also ordered an awning it will ship via Ground. This is why the phone number is so important. The LTL Freight Carrier will contact you via phone to work out a delivery time. No number no delivery. Missed travel time.

    All tents INCLUDE shipping only to the lower 48 states. Tents must be sent via freight truck (not UPS or Fed-Ex Ground) so please arrange an ideal location with easy access/and or forklift services to ensure no damage occurs in transit. A forklift is not required but definitely preferred.

    For residential deliveries: The courier will only deliver to the sidewalk, driveway, or garage. A valid telephone number must be provided at the time of purchase. This needs to be a number that you can be reached at in order for the delivery driver to schedule a delivery time. Failure to provide a valid telephone number will result in your tent not being shipped until we can make contact with you.

    If you cannot arrange to be available or fail to respond to the carrier, your tent will be returned to our warehouse and the return freight charges will be applied to your credit card.

    Lastly, if you see damage to the tent packaging take pictures immediately. Refuse delivery.  If you do not see any outer damage but find concealed damage once you open the packaging, stop, and take pictures. Make sure to take pictures of the packaging, the tent, anything that will provide context for the damage.

    • Install time is approx 1-2 hours with 2 people. Detailed instructions included.
    • Annex room zips on after the tent has been installed.
    • All necessary spikes included.
    • All necessary hardware included (even the tools) to mount to most all roof racks (using the custom extruded aluminum channel system).
    • Ideal mounting height for the tent would be 76″-78″ above the ground to allow for the ladder to extend and annex to hang to the ground.

    **Tent mounts slide In the lower mounting rail to accommodate any crossbars (left to right on the vehicle) with a spread of up to 52". We recommend your crossbars (left to right) are no more than 45" apart for optimal support. The included lower brackets will accept up to a 3.25" wide crossbar- Crossbars wider than 3.25" will require new brackets to be fabricated. Please see photos of the provided mounting brackets for a better idea of what to expect.**

    PLEASE DO NOT fabricate your mounting rails before you receive your tent. It never ends up well.

    Q & A

    What is the tent made from?

    Manufactured from high-quality polyester/cotton windproof fabric.

    Can I wash the cover for the mattress?

    Yes, you can remove the cover and wash it.

    I woke up and everything was wet inside, I thought this tent was waterproof?

    It is, but watch out here comes science. When you’re camping in colder weather a temperature gradient exists (cooler outside than inside) and so moisture will build up on the tent walls, ceiling, poles, and floor. An Anti-Condensation mat reduces the temperature gradient at the floor and allows moisture to escape. They also help with air-flow inside the tent and provides a small amount of extra padding.  These "Dry" mats also keep the mildew stink at bay.

    Can I have the access door from any side of the vehicle?

    Yes, the roof top tent can fold open from the right or left side of the vehicle or trailer.

    Do you include all of the hardware for installation?

    Yes, the tent comes ready with all hardware and wrenches but you will need to have the roof top racks ready for installation. Always check the weight capacity of your racks and your vehicle.

    How many people can this roof top tent sleep?

    Comfortable 3-4 adults but if you have small children they can be placed in between you or in the free annex room that is included.

    Is this tent easy to open and close?

    Yes, once you have practiced a few times in your driveway, the tent will take approximately 10-15 minutes of assembly.  The bulk of that time is setting up the window rods so that the windows have an overhang.  

    Does this tent hold up in wind and rain?

    Absolutely. The tent is waterproof as well as comes with a "Rain Fly" for those long rainy days. When secured correctly the tent will hold up to high winds.

    Do I need to clean the tent every time I camp?

    No, the tent will be fine and will be completely protected by the driving cover. We suggest that once you get ready to hit the trail you open the tent up to "air it out" clean the mattress protector and then you are ready to enjoy the outdoor adventures.
