Good to know

The Fjordsen XL rooftop tent is ...

The largest and lightest rooftop tent of its class and size

At 220 x 220 cm, the Fjordsen Air XL rooftop tent can easily accommodate four people, allowing you and your children to sleep comfortably in one tent. The Air XL weighs only 74 kg, so it still fits most cars. 

Four large windows

Watch the sunrise or sunset from inside the rooftop tent. The Fjordsen Air XL offers a great view in every direction. The windows are also great for airing out the tent. If it is too chilly or you just want a little more privacy inside your tent, you can close the ventilation windows for extra protection. 

Ready to handle all weather conditions

The Fjordsen Air XL is extremely strong and can withstand enormous wind loads and pressure once the core has been inflated using the included compact mobile compressor. The Fjordsen Air XL has been officially tested by the German-Dutch Wind Tunnels organisation, guaranteeing a safe and comfortable night's sleep during gusts of up to 50 km/h.

Does the Fjordsen Air XL fit on my car?

The Fjordsen Air XL is lightweight and fits almost any car. Use the car checker to find out whether your car is suitable. The Fjordsen Air XL uses a universal mounting system and can be installed on most vehicles. It is designed to be mounted on two standard crossbars (not directly on the car roof). Please note: you are always responsible for your vehicle and everything you transport in or on your vehicle. On no account may a person or animal be transported in the rooftop tent while the vehicle is in motion. By purchasing a Fjordsen rooftop tent, you accept that Fjordsen can never be held responsible for the installation of your rooftop tent on your vehicle, the behaviour of the driver with your rooftop tent on the vehicle, or the use of your rooftop tent.

How do you inflate the Air XL?

You can inflate the rooftop tent with the included Fjordsen air compressor. Always follow the instructions in the manual provided and watch the video FIRST! Select PSI or bar on the compressor before inflating! Important note: If you select PSI on the compressor, make sure the tent is NEVER inflated beyond 3.50 PSI. If you select BAR on the compressor, make sure the tent is NEVER inflated beyond 0.2413 bar.

Is the Fjordsen Air XL waterproof?

Several aspects are involved in assessing the waterproofing or water repellent properties of tent cloth. One of those aspects is called the "water column". The water column is an official test to determine how much water can remain on the fabric before water leaks through it. A water column of 600 mm means that 60 cm of water can stand on the fabric before water drips through. This will not happen in practice— 60 cm is more than in a normal bathtub. In short, a water column of 600 mm is more than sufficient in practice. Water run-off is another very important aspect. A high water column is less important if water cannot accumulate on the fabric due to good water repellency. After all, prevention is better than cure. TenCate tests the water repellency of its fabric in its laboratory using the official Bundessmann test, which simulates tropical rainfall and assesses how well the water runs off the fabric and whether it penetrates the fabric in the process. Our fabric achieves very high scores.

How did the Fjordsen XL rooftop tent perform in the official DNW wind tunnel test?

The Fjordsen XL rooftop tent has been officially tested by DNW, one of Europe's most advanced and specialised wind tunnel testing organisations. DNW was founded by the German Aerospace Center DLR and the Dutch Aerospace Center NLR. The Fjordsen Air XL rooftop tent performed exceptionally well in the wind tunnel test. Some competitors perform outdoor wind tests with wind energy simulations without scientific value or evidence. The official DNW test underscores the quality of the Fjordsen Air XL rooftop tent. It proves that the tent can easily withstand very strong winds and storms. Even though most people will try to place their car and rooftop tent in the safest place and environment possible, the Fjordsen Air XL has a durable and sturdy structure. About the DNW: Results:

So you've got your rooftop tent, but which mattress goes best with it? We recommend a mattress that is not too thick. In our experience, inflatable mattresses are the best option, depending on the number of people sleeping in the tent. We recommend the Quechua self-inflating mattresses or comfortable sleeping mats available from Decathlon. 

Please observe a maximum thickness of 5 to 7 cm for fixed mattresses. Why? This allows the mattresses to remain in the rooftop tent while it is closed for driving.

The maximum usable floor area for mattresses in the Fjordsen Light 220 is 205 x 220 cm. This means, for example:

  • 3 x Quechua sleeping mat 60 x 200 cm 
  • 1 x Quechua ULTIM large airbed 136 x 200 cm
  • 2x Quechua ULTIM airbed 70 x 200 cm + 1x Quechua sleeping mat 60 x 200 cm
