Perfect for a weekend away or a lengthy trek, the Columbus™ Variant and our new Columbus Carbon Fiber™ offer simplicity, fast and easy setup, light weight, and aerodynamic design to go where you go—on any automobile, truck, van or 4X4 vehicle.
The Columbus Variant and Columbus Carbon Fiber have excellent access—from either side or from the rear. The internal gas rams effortlessly open the tent in seconds. Packing the tent for travel is just as fast and easy. Bedding is carried in place, so there is nothing to do except open the latch, give the tent top a gentle push, unzip the doors, set up the ladder, and get comfortable.
The Columbus is built on an internal sub-frame incorporating an insulating foam sandwich construction. The subframe is strong and light and they mount directly to standard roof rack cross bars, such as Thule or Yakima. This foam sandwich construction insulates the tent and minimizes condensation under the mattress.
All AutoHome roof top tents are supplied ready for use right out of the box—just mount to your standard roof rack cross bars, add bedding, and go!
