Thule Outset

towbar-mounted car tent

The Thule Outset towbar-mounted tent will elevate your outdoor experience and offer unparalleled comfort, ease of use, and great accessibility.

Experience the revolution in outdoor living

Elevated from the ground, Thule Outset provides a great camping environment and a hangout area free from the inconvenience of mud, bugs, or uneven terrain. The unique design allows for a swift setup at ground level, taking the effort out of your outdoor adventures.

Provides the comfort of home

With panoramic views and a spacious interior, the tent is a comfortable setting for you and your companions. Accessibility is a key feature of Thule Outset, as its low height ensures easy access for everyone, including children, seniors, and pets.

Convenience is key

Mounting the tent on your car's towbar requires only one person, simplifying the setup process. Once you have set up camp at your destination, simply detach the tent from your vehicle if you want to take a day trip with the car. The tent can be securely locked at the campsite, providing peace of mind.

A rear-of-car solution with minimal impact

With its position at the back of your car, Thule Outset is a great option if you don't want to carry anything on the roof of your vehicle or if you want to leave the roof free for other gear. Not only that, but the aerodynamic rear location of the tent means little to no impact on fuel economy or battery range.
