Thule Approach M

2-3 person roof top tent fennel tan

On top of the world, on the top of your car. Thule Approach is a tent that makes adventure travel easier, more comfortable, and more fun. The car top tent maximizes interior space, giving you a great place to hang out in, as well as a comfortable night’s sleep. For an even more spacious experience, the tent is compatible with an annex or awning (sold separately). Made for rugged adventures off the beaten path, this rooftop tent is equally great for local explorations or weekend getaways with family and friends. Transform your vehicle into a home away from home and live the van-life experience no matter what you drive—SUV, sedan, truck, or hatchback.

The next level in rooftop tents: more space, more comfort, more adventures

Quick set up for easy getaways

Thule Approach is made for ease of use. Innovative mounting brackets allow you to install the tent on your roof in just minutes—half the time of traditional rooftop tents. The mounting brackets also lock the tent to your roof rack for added security. Thule Approach is one of the fastest soft-shell tents on the market to set up and break down. Once you arrive at your destination, simply unzip the travel cover, unfold the base, and you are ready to camp in under 3 minutes.

Comfort close to nature

Thule Approach will elevate your next adventure, quite literally, since you’ll be sleeping high above the ground. The panoramic windows on the ceiling and walls will bring you closer to nature than you have ever been! Thoroughly tested for durability and longevity, Thule Approach is ready for your next trip, wherever you want to go.

Tested to the limit
