Your Badass Tent was thoroughly inspected by our manufacturer and again by us prior to shipping to you and left our shop in great condition. Once you start using the tent, we will not replace the fabrics/windows if you rip or tear, get it stuck during up and down operations, your dog ate it, etc. Fabrics are not impervious to damage and cannot be warranted once used.

Vehicle Load Considerations

There are a number of things to consider when working out your vehicle’s load rating, and we want to help you understand the capacity of your racks and vehicle roof. Firstly, different vehicles have different roof ratings. You need to know the load rating of your vehicle. This information will be easy to find in your vehicle’s owners manual.

Secondly, there are a few different load ratings you need to understand. There are on-road and static ratings for all vehicles, as well as off-road ratings for vehicles that can travel off-road.

On-road refers to the load rating of a vehicle when traveling on a sealed road.

A static rating is the load rating of a stationary vehicle and is necessary if you’re using a rooftop tent for example.

The off-road load rating refers to a vehicle traveling on an unsealed road that does not contain a surface protection layer. Sometimes, manufacturers will list the load ratings in the vehicle’s Owners Manual.

Lastly, it is important to remember, if you buy an accessory or holder and attach it to your rack or tray, you must also include the weight of these in your cargo allowance.

It is very unsafe to overload your vehicle. The “just wing it” approach is not appropriate in this context, and failure to follow the load ratings in each circumstance could result in damage to your vehicle, potential loss of your load, voiding warranty or insurance or cause traffic accidents. It’s illegal to overload your vehicle.

Product FAQs

Q1. Where are BadAss Tents manufactured?

Sunny Southern California is our home where their patented, engineered and manufactured in our facility. What are the dimensions of the tent?

The standard tent exterior dimensions are 40-51" wide by x84". When closed the tent will be 5" thick, the thinnest RTT on the market by a significant margin.

Q2. How much will the tent weigh?

All of our tents will weigh under 100lbs +/- assembled depending on the specific model you purchase.

Q3. Will the tent carry a load when closed?

The tent will lift with 75-100 pounds on the roof, so bikes/skis/boats etc can be easily attached with our mounting systems. Additionally, depending on vehicle application, the tent doesn't need additional support for mounting, so it will act as it's own rack.
