Get the Greatest View with the New Signature Thule Approach Rooftop Tent

Thule Approach

The new Thule Approach is a tent that makes adventure travel easier, more comfortable and much more fun. It transforms your vehicle into a home away from home, no matter where you are and no matter what you drive!

Rooftop tents are an easy solution whether you’re heading on a rugged adventure, family excursion or weekend getaway, they are made for campers who love adventure.

“The Thule Approach is all the things you love but wouldn’t expect from a tent,” explains Jamie Owen, marketing manager for Thule SA. “What really sets it apart is that it maximises interior space.  Thule really wanted to create something amazing and the Thule Approach is spacious, airy and bright – it’s a great place to hang out in and also have a comfortable night’s sleep.”

A unique lightweight solution for more space

The reason the Thule Approach can be so spacious is quite simple – it is a soft shell rooftop tent that it is lightweight and has a small footprint on your car.  However, it doubles its size at setup giving you a generous living space with large windows on the ceiling and sides that allow you to get closer to nature in any weather. The dual layer foam mattress delivers an extra luxurious camping experience and the versatile raincover lets you quickly roll back the cover to give an open airy feel, or close up the tent for storm mode.

Closer to nature

The windows in the Thule Approach are huge and give you a feeling of being closer to nature.  The tent remains comfortable and cool during the hot summer days as there is plenty of ventilation and as the tent is weatherproofed you’ll stay dry if it’s raining.  The innovative skylights on the rain cover allow you to still look outside during the worst weather and also stargaze and take in the amazing view of the sky on clear nights.

Up and ready in just 3 minutes

The innovative mounting brackets allow you to install the tent on your roof in just minutes—half the time of traditional rooftop tents. The mounting brackets also lock the tent to your roof rack, for added security. Once you arrive at your destination, the rooftop tent is quick to set up – from parked to deployed in under 3 minutes. And when you are ready to leave for your next destination, you can break down the tent quickly and easily and get going in minutes.

Inspired by nature, the Thule Approach comes in three muted, sophisticated colours, Dark Slate, Fennel Tan and Pelican Gray and is available in two convenient sizes, medium and large.

Other Thule Approach accessories include:

  • Thule Anti-Condensation Mat– creates airflow that allows moisture to escape and helps keep your mattress in good condition.
  • Thule Approach Fitted Sheet– keeps your tent clean and allows you to have a comfortable and good night sleep.  After the adventure, just take the sheets home for a wash.
  • Thule Approach Annex– extends the footprint of your rooftop tent to give you more space to change clothes, cook, hang out and store your gear. It is a great shelter from sun, rain or bugs and can be used as a sleeping spot for kids.
  • Thule Approach Awning– helps eliminate the worries of unpredictable rainstorms and provides needed shade on hot days. It also expands your campsite to create more social space.
  • Thule Approach Insulator– custom fitted insulator that provides an additional layer of protection for cold nights.
