Thule Basin

hard-shell rooftop tent black

The ultimate hybrid system that combines a rooftop tent and cargo carrier all in one. Thule Basin pops up in under a minute and the hard-shell exterior makes this rooftop tent suited for harsh weather conditions.

A rooftop tent that auto-deploys and doubles as a cargo carrier.

When closed, it not only doubles as a roof box, but also has a clean and sleek look. Easy-to-install mounting brackets let you lock the tent to your roof rack or platform for peace of mind. Thule Basin is compatible with all Thule Evo roof racks – make sure to check weight limitations for all feet and fit kits, as well as other roof racks.

Quick setup – from closed to ready for use in less than a minute
