X-COVER car roof tent

Revolution in car roof tents

The next revolution in the rooftop tent sector! In the past a rooftop tent didn’t leave any space on the car for additional sports gear. Now with the new iKAMPER X-COVER the sky’s the limit! The X-COVER is a multi-talent.

X-Cover 2.0

The new X-COVER saves time and effort

The bulky PVC covers of traditional rooftop tents often pose a small acrobatic challenge on higher vehicles. The new patented cover encloses only the important area at the sides between the waterproof floor and the lid. The PVC sheet is securely integrated and closes with a heavy-duty waterproof zipper. Weighing in at only 55 kg, despite its size the iKAMPER X-COVER is an absolute featherweight among car roof tents. Which makes it also ideal for smaller vehicles.

A car roof tent is an especially good choice if your trailer hitch is already being used by a boat trailer, horse trailer, etc.

What a feeling of spaciousness

Sleeps 3-4 people comfortably

The huge king size bed offers space for an entire family. When the tent is opened up you have an area of 230 x 190 cm. The comfortable, thick premium mattress ensures a healthy, restful sleep.

Perfect ventilation

The X-COVER rooftop tent has big windows on all sides, so you can enjoy the view from up top. All the windows have sturdy, close-mesh mosquito nets, a waterproof layer that can be closed from the inside and special canopies that allow for ventilation even during heavy rain showers. A unique feature: the two panorama skylights that give you an amazing view of the stars by night and keep the tent nice and bright during the day. And if you like to sleep in, of course you can close the canvas flaps on the windows from the inside.

Ingenious design
Hardshell as roof rack

Rooftop tent and roof rack in one

The most special feature of the iKAMPER X-COVER is that the rooftop tent doubles as a roof rack. So you can load your bikes and kayaks on top with the help of our additional crossbars. An extension that will make all the difference on your camping holiday!

Purist aesthetics

Not without good reason did the iKAMPER X-COVER win the Red Dot Award for outstanding design. Its clear lines give the roof of your vehicle a streamlined profile.


We are 4-season campers!

Winter camping is way cool! And thanks to our innovative inner tent, nothing can hold us back! But if you like it nice and cosy in the tent when the temperature drops below zero outside, in our accessory shop you’ll find everything to warm a camper’s heart – from space heaters to heated blankets.

Inner tent

Breathing, sweating and cooking produce a great deal of water vapour, which causes condensation to form on the inside walls of the tent, especially on cold nights. To deal with this issue we developed the CAMPWERK inner tent. You simply attach it to the tent poles and presto: you’ve got a double-walled rooftop tent. The inner tent is made of 100 % cotton and has zip openings on all sides for optimal ventilation on hot days.

Annex tent

Whether you use it as a kitchen, locker room, shower or just an extra room – the annex tent is always a very practical addition. Thanks to its zip-on floor and fully enclosed walls, the annex tent keeps damp and rainy days where they belong: outside! Of course, having an annex tent has many benefits in nice weather too. Available for the Skycamp & X cover.


The awning makes sure you and your family are cool and dry on the campsite. It is quickly zipped to the tent, giving you a spacious covered area that keeps your living room and kitchen in the shade or out of the rain. Can be used for the Skycamp & X cover.

Materials and workmanship

Tent fabric

The tent is made of high-grade 300 g poly-cotton fabric, also known as sailcloth or canvas. This is a material masterpiece that unites the benefits of a natural fibre with those of a high-tech material. The result is a strong, breathable fabric with a pleasant feel and outstanding dimensional stability.

This material, which is also used by the military, is watertight and extremely tear-resistant. All the seams are sewn with special thread that expands the first time it comes in contact with water to tighten any stitching holes in the fabric.

Tent base

The floor of the iKAMPER SKYCAMP rooftop tent is made of aluminium honeycomb panels. This is a material with unbelievable stability which is at the same time very lightweight. It’s fireproof, environmentally friendly (as it is fully recyclable) and also offers an insulation layer for the sleeping area of the tent.

Frequently asked questions

Will the rooftop tent fit on my car?

The rooftop tent can be mounted onto almost any vehicle that has a minimum dynamic load of 60 kg. All you need are 2 crossbars or a roof rack. The rooftop tent is simply attached to the crossbars or roof rack with the provided mounting brackets. Mounting DIRECTLY onto the roof rails is not recommended, as the space between it and the roof is very small and the U-screws can scratch the paint. So you’ll also need crossbars or a roof rack for the roof rails.

We’ll be happy to provide you with the right load carrier for your vehicle with your order.

But with my weight isn’t the car roof tent too heavy?

Most cars have a roof load capacity of between 75 –100 kg, but this specification only applies to the load while driving! When stationary, the weight on the roof can be considerably higher. Think about it this way: the roof must be able to hold the entire weight of the car if it should overturn.
