Please note: You will need to have roof bars installed to your vehicle in order to install the TentBox Classic. In addition, the roof bars must have a loading capacity that allows for at least 65 kg of weight.


Roof bars, in general will be able to hold up to 4 times the amount of weight that they are rated to, when the vehicle is stationery, which would include when the TentBox is operational. This is because roof bars are built to provide support for a set mass, whilst also accounting for support needed when that mass is subject to other stresses, such as acceleration force and high wind speed.


So when your TentBox is in use, and therefore your vehicle is still, a roof rack rated to support the weight of the TentBox should be robust enough to support the weight of two additional people and a couple of dogs.

Quality TentBox product! The TentBox Cargo 3 is the new and improved update on the TentBox Classic, dependant on what you want from your rooftop sleeping area.


There have been some improvements to standard components, such as air vents within the TentBox floor, to increase air flow and reduce risk for condensation. 


If you’re a get-up-and-go type person and would rather pitch up in 30 seconds, rather than 30 minutes, then we have the solution! The TentBox is mounted to your roof rack, so that it’s there when you need it. The perfect camping accessory for your T4, T5, T6, or maybe even your hatchback Golf!


At a glance:

• Compatible with majority of vehicles, whether that be a hatchback, SUV, or an all-terrain vehicle,

• 30 second pitching time once installed, it’s basically instant,

• Comes equipped with a supportive, 6 cm thick foam mattress that enhances comfort,

• An TentBox Cargo roof rack is optional, which can hold surfboards and even bikes,

• Supplied with a fixing kit, so that you can fit your TentBox minutes after it arrives.


Compact and spacious

The Cargo 3 Tentbox, black edition, is perfect if you need a little extra space in your vehicle; move the bedroom to upstairs!


This TentBox is more of a wedge shape, one end extends upwards, while the other end operates as a hinge. Designed with a conscience, effort has been made to reduce use of materials where they’re not necessary. These design elements mean that the Cargo 3 can be more tightly compacted and therefore takes up less space on your roof. Despite the change to the shape, you still have plenty of room within the living compartment, once it’s popped up.


The angled ceiling provides extra height on one side, than the overall height of the TentBox Classic. Now you have a small space for you to stand up, which is handy if you would want to get changed in your tent. The angled ceiling can work brilliantly at preventing your bedroom from heating up too much. If you position the roof face in line with the sun, then your interior will be sheltered by the solid aluminium roof. You now have a comfortable area to shade yourself in the absolute height of summer, which is a rarity in a tent!


The TentBox is perfect for sleeping, or just daytime relaxing and soaking up the surroundings. You can really enjoy the summer in a TentBox, even when it’s just that little bit too hot. Fitted with door flaps, mosquito nets and even a rain guard, it has every situation covered and you can enjoy the great outdoors from the comfort of your own private area.


The Cargo 3 is even easier to use than the TentBox Classic and is certainly much simpler than setting up a tent or an awning. The TentBox takes 30 seconds to set up, and you’re done!


When you’re ready to head home, simply fold it back down and it will stay flat to your roof bars. It’s light weight and low profile, so the TentBox won’t slow you down while you’re on the move. Much like a roof rack storage container, the TentBox can just stay there ready for when it’s needed; ready for you to use on any adventure! Or alternatively, you can remove it from the vehicle very easily, when it’s not needed.


What is included?

You will get a comfy, 6 cm thick foam mattress which will support you for a great night’s sleep.


There’s also an extendable ladder, so getting into the TentBox classic is super easy.


Plus, you’ll get yourself a fixing kit with the TentBox to install your new gadget straight away.


What about the technical stuff, how weatherproof is it?

The TentBox is made from 280 gsm high quality rip stop canvas, this canvas is coated with a Poly-Urethane coating which provides waterproofing up to a 2000 mm Hydrostatic Head. The TentBox is designed with resistant material to deal with various weather conditions and does so while not being too heavy on your roof.


280 GSM Rip Stop: Rip stop material is specially formulated to be strong. The composition of the fibres is unique, and their purpose is to effectively prevent tears and rips; if one occurs it shouldn’t continue or ladder. The 280 GSM refers to the materials grams per square metre, so one square metre cutting of this canvas would weigh 280 grams. Most canvas used in camping equipment has a GSM rating of up to 400, but weight doesn’t exactly mean quality. The TentBox is designed to be both durable and weatherproof, but at a lower weight.


PU Coating: This is a Poly Urethane coating, used to provide a resistance to water and weather. PU has hydrophobic qualities, and this prevents the movement of water from outside the tent, to the inside of the tent, making it waterproof.


Hydrostatic Head of 2000 mm: The level of waterproofing can be measured and rated; this is what we call a fabric’s Hydrostatic Head (HH). This is a measure of how much water a material can resist before it starts to allow water through. The TentBox’s canvas has the capacity to hold a column of water 2000 mm high (or 200 cm high) pressed down onto the material before it would give way and let in water.


This means the TentBox is an incredibly capable product to hold up against the classic Great British weather.


What’s the shell/container made from?

The TentBox Cargo 3 exterior is made from hard-wearing, lightweight aluminium and the fixings and hinges are made from stainless steel for reinforced strength.


The shell has catches on the side instead of the previously used ratchet straps, the hinges provide a more secure fix and they help to compress the fabric more.


How comfy is it?

The 6 cm thick foam supporting mattress measures 210 cm by 125 cm, which means is that the mattress completely covers the interior floor within the TentBox. There’s not one single inch of floor surface that isn’t covered with foam, so you can sleep soundly through the night, no matter what!


There are floor vents in the lower surface, to help aid airflow to reduce the risk of condensation. If you’re camping in slightly colder conditions, areas where cold air meets a warmer surface, can sometimes result in a small amount of condensed liquid.


Is it easy to use?

Once installed using the fixing kit provided, there are just a few steps.


Step 1: Undo the stainless-steel catches that are located around the edge of the TentBox. These are what keep the unit compact and secured whilst it’s not in use.


Step 2: Begin to carefully and without too much force, lift the roof of the Cargo 3. As you push the ceiling upwards, the struts inside the walls will aid you with gas assisted opening.


Step 3: The walls are full extended in just 30 seconds! Time to retrieve the lightweight collapsible ladder from the inside of the tent, then pick which side you’d like to enter your bedroom from. Line the ladder up to its fixing points and slide the ladder on, then secure those points with the pins provided.


Step 4: Climb in!


Step 5: Brace your door flaps, or roll them up; bug nets down, or nets up! The freedom is now yours to layout and decorate your TentBox interior as you wish! Maybe even jazz up the ceiling with some battery powered LED lights.

Optional extras:

The Cargo 3 has an optional additional roof rack, which we sell under the part number J46635.


These TentBox Cargo roof bars are compatible with various models of the cargo range and provide you with endless possibilities. TentBox suggest that you could use the rack for 3rd party accessories such as light bars or solar panels. We say, if you’re someone who likes to make the most of the British outdoors, then you could use the roof rack for surfboards, canoes, bikes and all sorts!

Please note: You will need to have roof bars installed to your vehicle in order to install the TentBox Classic. In addition, the roof bars must have a loading capacity that allows for at least 65 kg of weight.


Roof bars, in general will be able to hold up to 4 times the amount of weight that they are rated to, when the vehicle is stationery, which would include when the TentBox is operational. This is because roof bars are built to provide support for a set mass, whilst also accounting for support needed when that mass is subject to other stresses, such as acceleration force and high wind speed.


So when your TentBox is in use, and therefore your vehicle is still, a roof rack rated to support the weight of the TentBox should be robust enough to support the weight of two additional people and a couple of dogs.
