Roofnest’s Slim Falcon 2 Rooftop Tent Is More Comfortable, Gear Savvy

Despite new design and additional standard features, Falcon 2 carries the same price as before.

BOULDER — Roofnest reveals Falcon 2, the second generation of the versatile Falcon aluminum clamshell rooftop tent that put Roofnest on the map. For the second generation, the Falcon 2 is all new and offers exclusive features campers can only get with Roofnest. 

“Since its launch in 2019, Falcon became one of Roofnest’s best-selling tents, thanks to its slim styling, durability, versatility, and unmatched standard features. Falcon 2 continues that legacy with more standard features and higher quality materials than any other hard-shell rooftop tent on the market,” said Roofnest Founder Tim Nickles. “What’s more, members of the Roofnest Flock owners group enjoy a more positive tent-owning experience than any other rooftop tent company.” 

Falcon 2 is a totally new design from top to bottom shell. Falcon 2’s new top shell is smooth and aerodynamic. It features a double accessory channel that accommodates Roofnest’s available accessory crossbars. With the crossbars attached, Falcon 2 can carry up to 150 pounds of gear when closed and up to 75 pounds when open. 

The bottom shell, based upon the range-topping Falcon Pro, is formed from honeycomb aluminum and includes twice as many accessory channels as it predecessor. doubling the number of accessories campers and overlanders can attach to their Roofnest. Each accessory channel holds up to 75 pounds with a standard M8 hex bolt, ideal for mounting lights, shovels, or axes, or recovery boards. 

Additional standard features include: 

  • 2.5-inch thick memory-foam mattress (an upgrade over industry standard density foam).
  • Newly designed rainfly zips on and off quickly and covers all three entrances.
  • Standard 8-foot telescoping aluminum ladder with angled rungs for more comfortable and sure-footed entry and exit. 
  • Thicker, quieter, and darker 320-gram poly-cotton tent material with blackout coating that extends snooze time. 
  • Interior-mounted six-pocket Gear Grid with a clear pocket ideal for smartphones and tablets. 
  • Two USB battery-powered dimmable LED light strips.

Like most Roofnest tents, Falcon 2 comes in two sizes: standard Falcon 2 and Falcon 2 XL. Falcon 2 can comfortably sleep two people and measures 88 inches long, 50 inches wide, and an incredibly slim 6.5 inches tall. Equally slim and long, Falcon 2 XL can sleep two to three people, as it is a bit wider at 88” x 60” x 6.5”. 

Despite their new design and additional standard features, Falcon 2 and Falcon 2 XL carry the same price as their predecessors. Falcon 2 is priced at $3,595 and available for order now with shipping soon. Falcon 2 XL is priced at $3,795 and shipping now.
