To go anywhere, leave everything behind and just take off on a new trip!
Some images we would like to fix for all eternity.
Moments that capture our thoughts and aspirations.
Maggiolina will never let you down: an indispensable companion and comfort throughout your journey!
“With Autohome roof tents each travel becomes magic. Freedom of sleeping under starry skies and pure landscapes that nobody can give. Comfortable and handy they have changed our way of traveling and they will still remain our travel companions for a long time.”
Oskars – Free 4×4 Style
“When we participate in multiple day Heavy Duty Throphy Raids, exhaustion at the end of the day is unavoidable so having a tent that is ready for sleeping withing a minute is incredibly helpful. Our Autohome AirTop tent can be attached to the vechicles roll cage, roof rails and cargo carrier giving us the ability to use the tent on either our expedition vechicle, trophy raid vechicle or free time vechicle.”
“Many unhappy people do not take the initiative to change their situation, because they are influenced by a sense of security, conformism and conservatism. This seems to ensure peace of mind, actually there is nothing such devastating for an adventurous soul as a secure future. The real core of the vital spirit is the passion for adventure. The joy of living rises from new experiences, and so there is no greater joy than having a constantly changing horizon, of being every day under new and different sky… That’s why my tent is my home.”
“I wish to thank Autohome Zifer Italy for having designed and built the Roof Tent; it has been my travelling companion during my adventures in the African continent. It’s the safe haven when in the evening, you’re tired of travelling and you can’t wait to throw yourself headfirst into a soft and clean bed, without the inconvenience of dust and sand.”
Finally back on my passion after years of no-traveling life. With a group of friends, I spent a month in the Arctic Russia.
During the cold Russian nights, I have always enjoyed the safety and comfort of the roof top tent Autohome: easy to use and stable, it’s the perfect “traveling companion”.
Franco Della Dora
40 years ago my first trips to Europe with Air-Camping. Since then I have tried many roof top tents, similar in appearance, but the current Maggiolina Safari is far superior to the quality of materials and comfort.
No problem even with wind at 70 km / h below 0 °.
For more than 25 years I have been part of the Corps de Ballet of La Scala Theatre in Milan. Now I have replaced the stages of the most famous theatres in the word with the green meadows of Mongolia and of other wild places in the planet.

Columbus tent is always the companion of my adventures.
Nico e Markus
In 2011/2012 we were in Morocco and it was immediately clear that we made the right choice. We have never had problems with our Maggiolina Extreme, even by night, under zero, in the desert, on undulating grounds, in case of wind and snow.
“Sleeping in a tent gives me a feeling of endless freedom; I enjoy everything around me, the nature, the purity of the air, the sound of brook water, the air breeze ……, even if my eyes are closed, I can see the stars in the sky. With my practical, comfortable and safe Columbus tent, I can feel all these emotions”.

It’s us again! Let us tell you that our life is great with Maggiolina. We actually have slept more than one year (that means more than 300 nights in 475 total days of our trip) in there and we still enjoy it. Greetings from Bangkok, Thailand.

“weeks throughout West Africa up to Cameroon continuing through Gabon, the two Congos, passing through Angola in Namibia, arriving at Cape of Good Hope in South Africa”.
For our journeys, 2 or 3 per year, Columbus tent has become an important element for our night camp and rest: its comfort and quick opening are essential for us! After many years of raids, 4×4 vehicles have changed but Columbus tent has not! Its reliability is always at top level!

In our tent we feel at home wherever we are, it’s our love-nest even in the boundless desert. Waking up… Seeing the dawn breaking… Enjoying the moment… Living life in freedom! Our motto is “One life… Live it!”

I have visited almost 80 Countries, photographed and wrote about nature and travels. I can always rely on my safe and comfortable Maggiolina. I do not worry, since I always know where I can comfortably sleep.

The Great Escape
«Autohome’s Off-Road experience has been gained “on field”. During the last fifty years, explorers, reporters, photographers and adventurers contributed to develop tents which can be considered as real technical articles as well as an extremely practical and flexible support.
Jürg Solberger, Severin Bucher and his team, professionals and experienced in great adventure-trips. From west to east on Marco Polo’s traces to discover history and events which left their mark on people’s fortunes.
Extreme adventurer – Hummer Expedition Island’s member” –
Ghiacciaio del Vatnayokull (Iceland)«The biggest glacier in Europe, In Iceland. We were afraid of suffering from the cold and the wind blowing in gusts, but thanks to both the Winter hood of the tent and the strength of the tent structure we had absolutely no problem. Other kinds of tent could surely not be so reliable!».
«The second highest lake in the world, 3,600 metres above sea level, encircled by majestic mountains (over 7,500 m) which are snow-capped all the year round. Karakul is a salt lake, it has transparent, blue-green water: in no case we could enjoy the view of the sunset we had from our comfortable Maggiolina»
Miky Fragapane – Desert Scorpion Team
«It is impossible to describe the magic of the Libyan desert. The rock needles are silhouetted against the sky and come out vertically from the sand. People living here five thousand years ago hunted wild beasts which do no more exist and this allows us to particularly enjoy our comfortable Overland: a practically indestructible tent»
“This Holy Mountain is really magic and inspires awe. Aborigines call it Uluru. Tonight, we camp here and tomorrow we are going to leave early, at nightfall. Thank goodness, we only need to turn the handle to close Maggiolina. In case of a tent being on the ground, a decampment by using electric torches would be a big problem”
Il parere del Tester – Chris Simons
“The strong subject of these tents is the original idea: in comparison with 1958, now both the materials and the finishing touch have achieved a very high quality level, but what makes difference was and is still the original revolutionary concept. To sum up, it is really difficult to find defects in Autohome tents, also considering the wide range as well as the different solutions and accessories this line consists of”
“Since a lot of years, Maggiolina and Columbus are our “fellow travellers”: the safety we have felt while sleeping raised from the ground was invaluable. These tents are real sleeping rooms, their inner part is very comfortable and the lateral pockets are remarkably functional. Due to their inner height, it is very easy to enter the sleeping bag and change. Even in the ends of the earth, people can feel at home”
“ertical lifting tents, such as Maggiolina or Columbus, are technical masterpieces; instantaneous opening and strength of the hooks allow remarkable safety conditions to be achieved. But when I am on business, I shall often get up on to the car roof to get the best view and for this reason I prefer Overland tent. When the latter is closed (or open) I can freely manoeuvre, since I have two positioning possibilities, so, I can say that this tent has really functional properties.”
“A very important venture! A very long and tiring journey, but every night we slept in a real bed and it was very helpful. The camp can quickly be pitched, under safety conditions and protected from small or big animals.”
