Made of canvas with poles and ladder, a foam mattress, and plenty of ventilation, Le Tente is the latest in rooftop camping.
The roof tent provides a functional cross between the natural, breezy experience of tent camping and the easy set-up of a camper or trailer.
The all-new Poler Le Tente promises to bring that cross-segment function to a new generation of car campers.
The Le Tente is made from heavy-duty, waterproof canvas structured by aluminum poles. It mounts to standard Yakima and Thule roof-rack bars, offering shelter for two people.
There’s no need for sleeping bags as Le Tente includes an integrated queen-size foam mattress for your added comfort.
Pitching is a simple, five-minute process involving unstrapping the package and folding the tent and aluminum ladder out.
When you’ve found the perfect camping spot, simply pull down the ladder and the tent pops up.
Just climb up the ladder and hop into bed.
While the Le Tente is designed to work with SUVs and any other vehicles that can handle the 140 pound roof tent on its roof rack, Poler promotes the concept of adding it to a van, highlighting a large van with front and rear Le Tentes in its introductory video.
Poler recommends that you check with them about compatibility for your specific vehicle make and model before ordering.
Also check your vehicle owner’s manual for weight restrictions and limitations.
Le Tente is currently available online from Poler for $999.99 for U.S. shipment only.
Shipping to most locations will cost approximately $250 depending on your location within the continental U.S. Contact Poler for an accurate quote.
In the words of the company’s spokesperson, Dan Douglas, “we put a man on the moon, and now we’ve put a tent on a van. God bless America!”
