Thule Tepui Foothill

See all pictures

Thule has a longstanding reputation for their roof top storage containers, so trusted and common that you probably wouldn’t notice them unless you were looking. They’ve since shifted their focus to include the occasional roof top storage of humans.

Their Foothill RTT is notable for its compact build and relative affordability. It also has the major bonus of only occupying half the horizontal space of the typical rack, meaning you have room for other storage components like a skirack, bike rack, or storage container.

Released at the start of 2021, the Tepui Foothill has already turned quite a few heads. Most RTTs carry significant bulk, and while the Foothill isn’t inordinately more lightweight than the rest of the tents in its more modest category, it does manage to shave off the odd twenty pounds or so.

Far more impressive is it’s compact profile, alleviating overhead clearance concerns while freeing up rack space for other gear. It’s the way to go if your roof top tent concerns involve having a place to sleep in your car during extended skiing, biking, and surfing trips.
