In the soft roof tent market, it is the fastest to set up and fold up. It is also the one with the best wind resistance thanks to its igloo shape and high-quality fabric. 

The Vision tent has set the bar for innovation and evolution as the first folding rooftop tent in the world with assisted opening via gas-charged struts. It is also one of the lightest roof top tents in the world due to a full aluminum structure, aluminum-composite floor with insulation interior layer, and no need for a noisy rainfly. The design and quality of the materials used makes it a flexible unique tent in the world, it can take up to 55mph winds and have a 5 year warranty.

The fixing rails under the floor allow to place the tent on roof bars or roof rack, and open it in right or left position or back. 



The Vision 180 is considerably larger than the Vision 150 and can accommodate four adults or two adults and two children.

The telescopic legs ensure a greater stability and security of the tent. They can be individually adjusted according to the ground.
The ladder can be fixed on both sides of the tent, ensuring a quiet entrance into the tent in case of unstable weather.



The ladder is adjustable to the vehicle height and flexible to match the movement when people move inside the tent. With non-slip and ergonomic steps, it is sent with a bag made of our canvas and PVC, to avoid sand and water going inside the tent.
