The most important question, is in which you feel most comfortable?
Evasion with a 360° view?
Space with a height of 145cm and space for your feet at the same time?
Discovery with quick assembly and dismantling?
Do I want to have some extra space on the roof? -> Extreme and Grand Raid
Also very important: just try and experience it!
WHAT CONDITIONS MY CAR HAS TO FULFILL?
Not every tent fits to every car. Your car must fulfill the following requirements:
Sufficient roof load for tent and cross member: The tents weigh between 50kg (Discovery) and 68kg (Space XXL and Evasion XXL). With the variant with roof space, you should consider the additional roof load required.
Distance between cross members: For the smaller tents, a distance between the two cross members of 80-100cm would be necessary. For the XXL models with a length of 224cm, a cross member spacing of at least 120cm would be necessary. (2 cross members should be used)
Cross member length: The tent may protrude a maximum of 5 cm per side. For a tent with a width of 140cm, i.e. at least 130cm wide crossbars, for the XXL roof tents (+ Grand Raid) with a width of 160cm, the crossbar should be at least 150cm wide. The reason is to distribute the load and avoid excessive loading of the hard shell.
HOW MANY CROSSBARS DO I NEED?
For a small tent we recommend two cross bars. For our XXL tents we also recommend two, but sometimes it´s not possible, so you will need three cross bars.
CAN I ORDER CROSSBARS AT GENESIS IMPORT?
We can inquire suitable cross bars or roof racks for you from the brands Rhino Rack and Front Runner and install them.
WHAT ARE THE STEPS OF AN ORDER?
Order/Pre-order directly in our shop.
You need to pay 10% down payment (20% for special colors)
Waiting for your tent
After the tent arrived and you paid the remaining amount of money, we can send the tent to you or you can make an appointmentat our workshop.
WHAT ARE THE DELIVERY OPTIONS?
Assembly, delivery and collection (collection only possible in a box with a trailer). Self-assembly is not possible because of insurance reasons.
DOES THE DELIVERY OF A SPECIAL COLOR TAKE LONGER?
Special colors always take at least 12 weeks. Theoretically, there can be longer delivery times during the main season.
CAN I INSTALL A SOLAR PANEL ON MY ROOFTOP TENT?
For this you would need a tent with a roof space, i.e. the Extreme or Grand Raid series where you can install it. The shell should not be drilled.
HOW CAN I TAKE CARE OF MY ROOFTOP TENT CORRECTLY?
You can find several videos on our Youtube Channel where we show you, how you can take care of it.
James Baroud gives a 5-year guarantee on tent fabric, mechanics and GRP shell and 2 years on the clamps and the gelcoat.
CAN I ASSAMBLE MY ROOFTOP TENT BY MYSLEF WHEN I PICK IT UP?
A tent assembly on our property is not possible because of insurance reasons. You can either pick your rooftop tent up or we can send it to you. For sure you can also make use of our assembly services. All information about our assembly and delivery prices can be found on the James Baroud order form.
WHICH TENT ENTRANCE IS THE RIGHT ONE FOR ME?
For all roof tents that open in parallel, there is a universal tunnel for the right and left side.
There are 2 different ones for the Space, one for the left (driver's side) and one for the right (passenger's side) side.
DO THE ROOF TENTS CONTAIN PFAS?
The chemical PFAS is not used in James Baroud rooftop tents. We are aware that some states in the USA are introducing regulations and bans on the sale of products containing PFAS and have contacted James Baroud in this regard. There is no need to fear a penalty or the like when purchasing a roof tent.
