The floor area of ​​the tent is 210 x 130 cm. Depending on the model, the maximum weight allowed on the roof tent is 140 kg or 190 kg. The floor is a high density polyfoam polystyrene mattress. The walls of the tent are made of a breathable cotton blend. Zippers are water resistant. The two side windows can be fully opened for ventilation or blacked out for darkness.
