Roofnest Reveals First-Ever Sparrow XL Hard Shell Rooftop Tent

BOULDER — Roofnest today introduced the first-ever Sparrow XL hard shell rooftop tent alongside the redesigned Sparrow and Sparrow EYE models. 

The new design of the Sparrow family builds on the benefits and success of the original by adding increased interior volume and headroom, more durable materials, and a new built-in exterior storage solution. The first-ever Sparrow XL further expands those benefits by adding eight inches to the tent’s overall width. 

“The newly expanded Sparrow family is more efficient and convenient than ever before. It builds on Roofnest’s core principles of value and versatility and includes exciting new design features and improved durability and comfort,” said Roofnest founder and CEO Tim Nickles. “We are confident that the new Sparrow models will continue to be the best-performing hard shell rooftop tents on the market.” 

The top shell of the new Sparrow model now includes a 22-inch wide area designed to accommodate a 100-Watt flexible solar panel. Sparrow XL’s space is 27 inches wide area and can accommodate a 160-Watt flexible solar panel. Behind that, designers formed a clever storage space, which can hold the specially designed waterproof Roofnest storage bag included with each Sparrow tent. 

Feature highlights include: 

  • Marine-grade struts with heavy-duty hinges that will last the life of the tent 
  • Built-in three-inch thick foam mattress — the thickest in its class — with anti-condensation mat for dry and comfortable camping 
  • Waterproof and breathable 280-gram polyester-cotton canvas construction with reinforced corners that is insulative and quiet in the wind 
  • Unique detachable pocket system keeps shoes and other items handy and dry 

The Sparrow is offered in three distinct layouts: Sparrow, Sparrow XL, and Sparrow EYE. Sparrow measures 50 inches wide, 84 inches long and 11 inches tall. Sparrow is 6’10” long and 4’ wide inside and comfortably sleeps two adults. Sparrow XL 58 inches wide, 85 inches long and 11.5 inches tall when closed. Sparrow XL is 6’10” long and 4’6” wide inside and comfortably sleeps two adults and a child or dog. Sparrow EYE has the same dimensions as Sparrow but unfolds into an easy-to-use triangle shape. 

Pricing for the new Sparrow model line starts at $2,895 and includes free shipping to all lower 48 states. All three Sparrow models are on sale now.
