Note: This tent is compatible with roof racks that install on raised side rails, flush side rails, or in fixed mounting points.

Rooftop Tent Basics

To be able to use this tent on your vehicle, both your roof and your aftermarket roof rack must have a minimum load capacity of 165 lbs. This weight capacity, also known as dynamic weight capacity, is the maximum weight your roof and roof rack can safely support while the vehicle is in motion. If your setup meets these requirements, then you should be able to safely hold the tent and occupants when your vehicle is stationary. The stationary capacity, or static weight capacity, won't be listed in your vehicle's manual or your roof rack's installation instructions. Instead, it is determined by the 165 lbs minimum load carrying capacity explained above.

Hello etrailer
I had bought a Thule
Tepui Kukenam 3 , and I have had a great time with it i am
just like a kid with a new toy . I am going to retire at the end of 2020 and planning on doing a lot of traviling and thank to you . I will be able to do it in comfort .

Thank you Ugene T


I wanted to use it before placing a review but so far i been to 4 camping trips and i love it. Installation was pretty easy you do need someone to help you though. The only thing i wish was that the cover was a little bit more heavy duty material mine has 2 holes already after the 2nd use. Other then that love this tent.


Great service as always from Etrailer.

  • How Does Roof Rack Capacity of 165 lb Work with Roof Top Tent
    The 165 lb capacity of the roof of your 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe is actually a dynamic capacity which means that the capacity is when the vehicle is travelling down the road where there are a lot of bumps that will exaggerate the weight on the roof. The static capacity would be the weight it can hold at a stop. Most of the time roofs aren't rated for a static capacity since roof tents are a more recent thing that has become more popular.

  • Can a Roof Rack Tent Be Used on a Yakima Rack-n-Roll Trailer?
    You can definitely use the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer - 78" item # Y08107 with a roof rack tent. The crossbars on the trailer are adjustable from 4-48 inches wide in order to accommodate the clamps of a roof top tent. For a great roof top tent, that will keep you well within the capacity of your trailer, I recommend the Thule Tepui Explorer Kukenam 3 Rooftop Tent item # TH8001KSK04. This is a two person tent that weighs just over 100 lbs. I have linked our selection of other roof top...

  • Can Thule Roof Top Tents Be Mounted On Thule TracRac SR Ladder Rack Crossbars
    Hi Maurice, The mounting points on the Thule Tepui Explorer Kukenam 3 Rooftop Tent # TH8001KSK04 are designed to clamp onto crossbars that are a maximum of 3-1/4" wide x 1-1/2" tall. Since the TracRac SR has 4" wide crossbars you'll have to pick up an adapter # THXADAPT14 in order to mount the tent on the crossbars.

  • What Roof Rack System Is Needed For A 2022 Ford Escape With A Naked Roof
    Unfortunately since your 2022 Ford Escape doesn't have factory mounts the only roof racks that would be compatible would be the clamp-on style that mounts on the door frame. Because it's not actually mounting to the supports on your roof you wouldn't be able to use a rooftop tent. The only solution would be to use a trailer with crossbars, like the # Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer # Y08129. This trailer was designed specifically for this purpose, but I've seen a lot of people...

  • Recommended Truck Bed Ladder Rack To Mount A Roof Top Tent Onto 2013 Ford F-150
    For a roof top tent I would look into the Yakima SkyRise HD Tent for Roof Rack Crossbars - 2 Person - 400 lbs - Tan and Red # Y07436 if you need to fit 2 people, or the Thule Tepui Explorer Kukenam 3 Rooftop Tent - 3 Person - 600 lbs - Haze Gray # TH8001KSK04 if you would like to fit 3 people. The Thule Tepui Explorer also comes in Olive Green # TH8001KSK05. You cannot install either of these roof tents onto your 2020 Honda CRV since it does not have factory rails. Since the roof racks...

  • How to Use Thule Tepui Explorer Kukenam 3 Rooftop Tent on 2017 Ram 1500
    The issue with all rooftop tents is that to mount them on a roof rack, the rack must be mounted to raised rails, and the roof racks that fit your 2017 Ram 1500 all attach to a naked roof, so a roof top tent is not compatible. I know you specified not on the bed of the truck, but that would be the only option for you so I wanted to mention it, and there is an option from Yakima for this: - 78" Crossbars: Yakima OverHaul HD Adjustable Truck Bed Ladder Rack # Y01151-59 - 68" Crossbars: Yakima...

  • Wind Deflector Options For A Thule Tepui Explorer Kukenam 3 Rooftop Tent
    While there currently any wind deflectors specifically designed for a rooftop tent, like your Thule Tepui Explorer Kukenam 3 Rooftop Tent # TH8001KSK04, there are deflectors for the roof rack like the Inno Fairing for Roof Racks # INA261 that can help a bit with wind resistance. This specific deflector has a clamp-on design for easy installation and removal. It can fit crossbars a maximum of 1" tall x 3-1/2" wide x 1-1/8" diameter, but also has an adapter kit # INISF717 for taller crossbars.

  • Recommended Crossbars for a Leer Camper Shell On A 2002 Toyota Tacoma
    For your 2002 Toyota Tacoma with a camper shell, I recommend going with the Rhino-Rack Heavy-Duty Roof Rack for Camper Shells # Y01-120B. These crossbars are designed to be used on camper shells, measure 54" long x 1-5/8" wide x 1-7/8" tall, has a 6" long track length for plenty of adjustability, and has a maximum carrying capacity of 220-lbs so you'll have plenty of capacity for a rooftop tent like the Thule Tepui Explorer Kukenam 3 Rooftop Tent - 3 Person # TH8001KSK04.

  • Roof Rack for 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon to Carry Thule Explorer Tepui Kukenam
    The Thule Explorer Tepui Kukenam part # TH8001KSK04 requires an aftermarket roof rack that installs on the side rails of your 2018 Subaru Outback so for that you would want the Thule Wingbar Evo roof rack part # TH711120, # TH710601, # TH37CE which is a confirmed fit for your vehicle. That would be all that you would need.

  • Rooftop Tent and Crossbars for a 2015 Subaru Outback
    Unfortunately, those adapters are no longer available. Instead, I'd recommend going with the Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars # TH711100 with the Evo Flush Rail Feet for Thule Crossbars # TH710601 and the Fit Kit for Thule Evo Flush Rail and Edge Flush Rail Roof Rack Feet # TH37CE. These are going to attach to your OEM bars, so they're not going to replace them but this setup with work great with a rooftop tent like the Thule Tepui Explorer Kukenam 3 Rooftop Tent # TH8001KSK04.

  • Roof Rack for 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee for Using with Thule Tepui Tent
    The HD Yakima roof rack that fits your 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee part # Y01157, # Y28TR, # Y03541, and # Y06121 would be best option for carrying the Thule Tepui Explorer Kukenam 3 # TH8001KSK04. The capacities for roof racks are a dynamic rating which means it's how much weight it can carry when travelling on bumpy roads so the static number is much higher. While a static number is available for most racks (including this) we know that with as high of a dynamic capacity as this rack has...

  • Recommended Roof Rack For 2017 Ford Explorer That Will Accommodate A Roof Top Tent
    I have a solution for you, but there are not any roof racks for your 2017 Ford Explorer that are rated for 190lbs when vehicle is in motion. I will give you a few roof rack recommendations so you are aware of your options. If your 2017 Ford Explorer has factory raised rails running front to back then you will want to go with Inno Aero Crossbars - Aluminum - Black - 51" Long # INXB130-2 along with the necessary Feet # INXS350 and Fit Kit # IN28FR. This has the highest weight capacity available...
