The Columbus

Price: from $5200*

The Autohome Columbus hard shell rooftop tent is light, robust and ridiculously fast and easy to set-up. It also has the advantage of a very tall space at the open end. Strong and beautifully built.

There are three Columbus models; Columbus, Columbus Variant and Columbus Carbon.

Columbus Variant and Carbon models both have a large, extra door at the end, maximizing air-flow, access, and outlook. The carbon is of course made of Carbon Fibre - super-light where you need to save weight.

Opening and Closing 

The Columbus is the easiest tent to put up and take down... in the world; opening in a literal instant, by releasing the catch at the back. A tough and simple hinging mechanism is paired with the power of gas struts, which lift the top and keep the fabric tensioned. The gas struts have a locking mechanism in case of high winds.

Fibreglass; the top and base of the Columbus are fibreglass. The Autohome fibreglass base is a sandwich panel with integrated insulation built-in, keeping the tent warm and eliminating condensation. Learn more about Autohome fibreglass and materials here.

Fabric; the fabric is an absolutely crucial part of what makes Autohome tents unequivocally the best in the world. Autohome has selected the German-manufactured Bayer fabric, which has outstanding breath-ability and condensation management properties. 

Carbon fibre; the standard unit has a fibreglass shell, but for those obsessed with weight reduction, and a tough as nails construction, a carbon fibre version is available....the absolute ultimate accessory for the ultimate expedition vehicle.

The Columbus comes in 3 widths and 3 lengths!

Made in Italy in the same factory that has been continuously improving these tents for over 60 years.
