Overcamp is an excellent roof tent, suited to any camping situations.

COMFORT ALWAYS HOLDS THE FIRST PLACE
The roof and sides are made of a heavy duty single skin 420g/ m2, 50% cotton and 50% acrylic fabric, which is water proof, breathable and rot-proof.
This fabric has several advantages: it’s extremely breathable, so inside the tent is fresh and airy, unlike plastic-coated or resin-treated fabrics, which are non-breathable and therefore create lots of condensation, which is the main cause of moulds. However the breathable nature of the fabric doesn’t reduce it’s impermeabilty to rain: on contact with water, the fabric weave swells and thickens; where sewing has occurred, the holes created by the needles swell and seal as does the thread used for stitching, whereas in plastic-coated fabrics, some permeable holes will still remain.
The boards used for the tent base are made of a poplar plywood, which, thanks to its long fibres, is very resilient and hard-wearing. This 12 mm thick plywood has been developed for this particular application; the different layers are bonded together by the cross-overlapping method, following the wood grain to produce the products unique features. The Air-Camping procedure includes, veneering both outside and inside of the tent base, by applying two 0.3 mm thick Silver-Quartz CHPL (Casework with High Pressure Laminate Finish) laminated sheets. The plywood, therefore, has a double protection: it is waterproof and water-repellent both outside and inside, does not absorb humidity, will not warp and prevents the formation of harmful mould.
A widely used, high-technology yarn, made of two different fibres: pure cotton outside, to swell on contact with water and fill the holes made by the needle plus a synthetic fibre core is used on the inside of the yarn to obtain a high strength seam.
OVERCAMP TECHNICAL DETAILS
The closed tent can contain 2 or 4 pillows, depending on the model, and night-time accessories.
For example, a rucksack and blankets can be fitted inside the tent, so they don’t take up room in the boot or inside the vehicle.
When choosing a roof tent, the height is important because it shows how much room there is inside and how easy it is to move about, hence the comfort.
Even just a few centimetres more or less make a big difference: everything has been calculated to ensure that a person of average height (170-190 cm) can sit comfortably without the head coming close to the ceiling.
The width (SMALL /MEDIUM) depends on the number of occupants
The windows are big enough to give an excellent view and small enough not to compromise privacy.
The widest possible door is provided, 170 cm in the Small version and 195 for Medium.
Standard bases include 2 strong C-shaped steel bars to hook the tent onto the vehicle roof rails, using the clamps supplied.
