Built on the concept of the shell opening, it is the fastest of our roof tents in terms of opening and closing. In its category, compared to other tents on the market, it has the best waterproofness and the best wind resistance.

The compact model in the line of rooftop tents, the Discovery rooftop tent offers all the features of the larger models in a versatile and easy to manage size. The Discovery has two entrances and large wrap-around Windows that maximize airflow and provide a 240-degree view.

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 rooftop tents and attaches to either side of the tent.
