Paul Farrel

Photo-reporter

“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.”

Bruce Linker

Deserto del Gobi (Mongolia)

“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.”

5 December 2016

Agostina Petragalli (reporter)- Edoardo Bauer (fotografo)

“An exciting journey, during which we used our 4×4 vehicles equipped with the original car roof tents: extraordinary journey supports.”

Giusy Concina

"Raid Middle East By Car"

After 8500 kms on tracks, off-road and deserts in Hungary, Rumania, Turkey, Syria, Israel and Jordan, the Giusy Concina’s “Middle East By Car” ended in Aqaba, on the Red Sea shore. With her Columbus tent, she crossed Countries being subject to strong political and social tensions, therefore, her adventure-journey had a particular importance.

Paolo Francesco Brunello

avvocato - Photo Challenge 4x4

“Fortunately, we had Autohome tents on our vehicle roof. This very functional and protected system allows to safely sleep, even in case of intense cold and wind. They are very strong and ensure total comfort and safety conditions. And in the morning, on waking up, it was possible to enjoy a view of the desert in the first daylight: beautiful!”

Stefano Pesarelli e Francesca Guazzo

Majestic natural landscapes, people, boundless savannas and animals have featured this African crossing and by the way, in Ilha de Mocambique, a degree dissertation in architecture related to a protection of environmental historical values has been drawn up.

Roberto Cattone

Tour leader

“In some rare cases and always supported by valid reasons, only a name is enough to create or make images, sensations and emotions live again. Autohome is one of these names: a box of little and great adventures, far and close memories, comfort and rest; I can still smell the sand and hear the silence of the stars.”

Fulvio Icardi

Dirigente d'azienda

Stephan Wermuth

Photographer e Bilia (a sinistra)

“Dunes high like mountains during the day and a 5 stars roof at night. I am not jealous of my Maggiolina if most of the times she is the star. On the contrary, I am proud of knowing that the pictures taken already obtained a honour place. On the other hand, the same pictures have also been hung on the walls of my home… When you go to the ends of the earth you never know what to expect. For this reason, it is better to be properly equipped.”

5 December 2016

Jean Claude Billau

Tour leader

“I have been utilising Maggiolina from 150 to almost 200 times per year and this since 1996. To date, the total amount of kilometres I rode is equal to more than one million, always on the roof of different Land Rover vehicles I owned since then; the tent is permanently on the car roof 365 days per year. I never had any problem concerning shell or opening mechanism. I suggest all my customers to use this kind of tent for the travels I organise; for comfort and safety, Maggiolina is the best possible equipment.”

Fritz Bez

Esperto viaggiatore

“Better the devil you know than the devil you don’t know”. Anyone who wants to reach the ends of the earth knows that not only motorways will be waiting for him, but also many dirt roads, impenetrable forests, sandy landscapes and ancient ruts. To make you feel at home in the whole world, Autohome is a great certainty.

Sergi Garcia

Tour leader

“Our target is not only to travel but also to know and interact with the different populations and cultures we meet during our journey, always offering our help and cooperation to anyone who needs it.”

Ronny Stavsholt [Norway]

Enthusiastic raider

“Wonderful nights that are impressed in my heart. Sometimes I exaggerate a bit, but when I am to the ends of the earth, there is only a handle that can save me: Maggiolina is my faithful companion. I love it very much!

Diego Assandri e Luca Oddera – JAMBO

Ti interessa attraversare l’Africa in macchina… Dammi un po’ di tempo, ci devo pensare…

Car dealers, raiders, trial car enthusiasts, organizers, engineers, co-pilot (Claudine): they know everything about 4×4 vehicles, since the appearance of the latter in France, during 80’s. Franck, one of their children, has given society new dynamism by furtherly developing the preparation activity.

Edo Bauer

“I like hard work in a simple camp, in clear or dark nights and also when the sandstorm rages. Desert is terrible and merciless, but if you know it, you cannot forget it”
“My work consists of writing and taking photographs of motorcycles in Africa. Desert is nearly always my destination and the tent being on my Toyota roof is my ‘village all inclusive’.”

Jiri Chramosil

WOLKSWAGEN TOUAREG - CLUB

Instructor and International Tester makes journeys all over the world. 
“The sun burns, the sand is lifted in dusty whirls, it is so hot that the sky mingles with the flickering desert. Still a few kilometres and you reach your destination. A precise destination does not exist , but what counts is that with Maggiolina you always reach home, wherever you are. Maggiolina: quality and perfect look.”

Knut Espegard

Distributore del Nord Europa di articoli sportivi e da camping organizza spedizioni alla portata di tutti

“…I do not know what you prefer, but I do prefer Maggiolina. It is a fundamental accessory that allows me to prepare my camp in any weather condition. As the wind is strong, Maggiolina always shows its best features: it does not “lose its composure” and does not break up. Thank you Autohome.”

Ottavio Zirilli

Tour leader e reporter

“Extraordinary images and sensations: from the look of children in the schools of the deserts, to the sand scraping among the teeth”. The roof-tent can really make the difference. In a long raid, it eliminates the stress of the camp and allows to enjoy the sunset till its end. In addition, sleeping up there is wonderful. The important thing is to have the right tent brand: Autohome!”

5 December 2016

Alessandro Centofanti e Paolo Pasquato

Tour Operator Pangea Crossing

“Our travels are focussed to introduce the beauties and the cultures of the countries that we will visit, moving in a natural way and with no stress, in total safety but always in contact with the nature and the history of those places”

Martina Pullin

Buona notte dalle nostre confortevoli "mansarde"

“…it is nice to wake up every day in a different desert point. And to go out from our tent when dawn breaks, to stretch our arms and legs in the fresh air, to fill free within light and space, to simply breathe, live and be happy for this… This is Pierre Loti’s feeling after a refreshing sleep in his very comfortable tent.

Raffaele Rossetti

Esperto di auto da rally

On the roads of the world: travelling, Land Rover, tent and stove. For me and my friends I organise travels preferably to North. In my garage, ready to use, I have two kinds of tents: Overcamp and Maggiolina.
“…rain, water, wind, storm and rain again. With our tents everything is wonderful all the same, but with something more: the sun at midnight in our hearts.”

Simone Tortini

Architetto di professione con la passione per la montagna

“I felt I had to congratulate Autohome. I bought an Airlander and 2 days in the humidity of the woods made me appreciate the perfection of my future home for the week-ends and for the vacations all around the Alps.”

Sonia e Hans Peter (Wetzikon- CH)

Fans di Autohome

“Since 1997 Autohome roof tents are the most reliable bedrooms we have been sleeping in. In any weather condition, we always have a wonderful and comfortable bed, ready in a couple of minutes.”

Enrico Caruso e Lucia Tincani

Enthusiastic travellers

“Up on a gorge with panoramic view on a glacier or in front of an elk weighing 4500 kilograms close to a stream, there are always good reasons to stop and camp. The important thing is to have a Maggiolina. The right product for any situation. Kind regards to everybody”

2 December 2016

Honza Perclìk

Enthusiast raider

“…it was very cold, we were in a perfectly closed room: windows, doors and any opening were totally closed and we had no humidity problem. It is really true: the tent fabric is like the highly breathable fabric of our jackets. Maggiolina is in our opinion the best product and we recommend it, absolutely! Bye Bye.”

Mìla Janàcek

HUMMER EXPEDITION

“Across the Atlantic Ocean by a wooden boat equipped with a dragon head… More than thousand years ago, people should have a particular inward conviction to launch in such an adventure. Nowadays, people can count on the reliable Maggiolina tent, a safety at any latitude, in case of long journeys, at any weather condition, wind, cold, rain.”

Gaetano Barbagallo

Sostenitore dell’Organizzazione Umanitaria Bambini nel Deserto

On September 25th, 2000 the first BnD expedition to Morocco has started; only one vehicle, two persons, a huge load and a few certainties. It has been a great success above all in human terms and many other expeditions followed the first one. In a few years we succeeded in reaching many countries: sometimes bringing a few boxes of medicines, pens or work books, but always and directly in the hands of those who needed them.

The magic forces dominating the reign of Nordic legends seem to have inspired our trip up to the point in which the last sun ray appears. It is wonderful!”

Motta Gianfranco

Maradah/Libia

Experienced raider who has been owning Maggiolina for about 15 years
“A wonderful place at the boundaries with Algeria. Spire roofs and wonderful king-posts of sandstone where it is very easy to get lost. Very small passages, with very soft sand. A show that shall not be missed. Anything that moves on sand annoys me: with Maggiolina I solved my problem.” 

2 December 2016

Pierluigi Rizzato

Robo Gabr’ Aoun

Esperto per safari nel deserto: Marocco, Libia, Tunisia, Namibia, Sudan, Mali, Niger, Algeria

“My “Africa sickness” is being forcedly away from those lands, my everyday life that prevents me from living them in the modes and time periods in which my soul would like to. The shades of ochre inflaming those horizons have become the colours of my soul and it is with them that I paint my day.”

“Finally, we go back, other dunes wait for us and we do not know how high they are… anyway, the most important thing is to go back…”
