How long is delivery?
All Horizon roof top tents are custom built. Expected delivery date will be 8 weeks following your order.
Can the Horizon be mounted on my vehicle?
The Horizon has a universal mounting system and can be mounted on most vehicles. The Horizon is designed to be mounted on two cross bars (NOT directly on the roof of the car) and we would recommend purchasing them through your vehicle manufacturer or Thule. The cross bars must have a dynamic weight capacity of 165 lbs or more and must be 30 inches apart for the Horizon to be mounted on your vehicle. Please ensure you consider the weight of the Horizon when purchasing your roof racks.
Will my car be able to hold the Horizon roof top tent?
Your car will have a maximum permitted roof load; please refer to your vehicle handbook. The Horizon roof top tent can be fitted to any vehicle, however you will need to take into consideration the length and width of your vehicle - It is for this reason that there are two sizes available.
How do I attach the Horizon Roof Top Tent?
On delivery you will receive fitting instructions and all the tools required. We would recommend using a specialist service for optimum safety.
How fast can I drive with the Horizon?
The vehicle’s speed must be adjusted to the load being carried and the current driving conditions, such as the road type, road quality, wind conditions, traffic intensity and applicable speed limits. Applicable speed limits and other traffic regulations must always be observed. You must not exceed 120km/h

How much does the Horizon weigh?
Size M - Weight: 70kg
Size L - Weight: 80kg
What is the weight limit?
The weight limit will depend on the cross bars and the car roof. Most roof racks have a weight capacity of only 165 lbs. The load capacity of a cross bar indicated the dynamic (moving) load, not the static load. Once the vehicle is parked, the cross bar can take more weight.
Can I store anything in my roof tent?
This is not recommended. If you do store items in your roof tent, you will need to consider the additional weight to your car roof capacity.
Can I leave bedding inside the tent when it is closed?
There is enough room in the Horizon for sleeping bags, blankets, pillows and clothing, please consider the additional weight to your car roof capacity.
