Roof tents on the market are roughly divided into three categories: hydraulic roof tents, fully automatic roof tents, and inflatable roof tents.


Type 1: Hydraulic roof tent


"Hydraulic roof tents" support the roof tent through hydraulic support poles inside the tent. They are generally semi-automatic (requiring manual assistance) or automatic (no manual operation required at all). There are mainly two types: hard top and soft top.


Hard-top roof tents are mostly automated and can be easily opened and closed with a button, making them very friendly to women. It just has a small space, can only accommodate up to two people, and is heavy.


Soft-top roof tents are mostly opened manually, which is more laborious. But the accommodation space is large, and most of the tents on the market for about 4 people are soft-top tents. This price will be cheaper.


The second type: fully automatic roof tent


The "fully automatic roof tent" requires motor drive and does not require manual opening. Press the automatic switch and the tent can be easily opened and closed in a few dozen seconds. However, the disadvantage of this type of tent is that it is heavier and more expensive.


In the past, most of the fully automatic roof tents were hard-top and mostly hydraulic. With the continuous updating of roof tent technology, soft-top fully automatic roof tents have gradually appeared on the market. This design has broken the "hard-top tent" The shortcoming of "small accommodation space".

Advantages: It is more convenient to open and close, save labor and quickly.

Disadvantages: The price is high and requires the use of in-car power supply.


The third type: inflatable roof tent


This is also the newest type of roof tent on the market. Unlike hydraulic and automatic support poles, the "inflatable roof tent" is supported by air pillars. Such a tent only needs an air pump when setting up. Even if it is manually inflated, it takes about 3 minutes to inflate with an electric pump. Shorter. During the inflating process, you can also enjoy the fun of outdoor life as a family.


The advantages of inflatable columns are that they are easy to store, require little storage space, are beautiful, and are safe. Even if the column is blown down by strong wind, the hand support will be restored immediately, and there is no need to return to the factory for repair.
