Hitch Tent™ is a hitch-mounted platform designed to boost the convenience, versatility, and comfort of a rooftop tent system. Remaining vertical during transport, Hitch Tent™ is quickly and easily deployed on almost any terrain thanks to the four fully adjustable legs and feet.

The rear-mounted design frees up valuable roof space, dramatically reduces wind resistance and most importantly; provides a detachable basecamp for unrestricted adventure.

Construction:

Made proudly in the USA and designed for the most brutal overlanding conditions, Hitch Tent™ is fabricated from ultra-tough, hot rolled A36 steel and CNC machined 6061-T6 Aluminum. Hitch Tent™ will accommodate most two and three-person canvas-style rooftop tents, and mounts seamlessly to a 2” hitch.

Anodizing Color Options:

The anodizing color selections are applied only to the machined components. This includes the central brackets, the hinged brackets connected to the legs and the feet. The legs and horizontal rails cannot be anodized at this time.

Hardcoat Anodizing is an upgrade to the basic option. Available only in black or gray, Hardcoat anodizing provides a much more resilient coat to the anodized parts. This helps prevent scratches and damage to the machined components.

Note: Hitch Tent™ is the platform system only and does not include a rooftop tent.

Hitch Tent™ will begin taking Pre-Orders on Friday, May 17th. Our first batch of units will ship Mid-September.

Does REP provide a warranty?

REP offers a 1 year warranty for any defects of our products. In the case of a warranty issue, replacement parts/unit will be provided. For non-REP products, refer to the manufacturer warranty information.

What are the general maintenance guidelines?

The pivot mechanism should get a touch of grease on occasion to keep the movement smooth. As with anything with steel components subject to abuse and the elements, rust can develop over time. While all steel components are coated to prevent rust, it may be necessary to touch up spots with a rust preventative paint. These are readily available at any local automotive store. The Hitch Tent responds well to being used often, be sure to not let it sit unattended for too long!

In the case of any parts needing replacement for REP products, all parts can be ordered individually. Contact us directly to make sure we get you everything you need. Please note: we do not stock parts for other brands, but we will happily help you find what you need.

Do you offer returns?

Do you charge sales tax?

What is the largest tent it can fit?

The initial model Hitch Tent™ will support up to a 62" tent. Instead of opening to the side, tents of this size will likely require a rear opening orientation which allows for a lower, more stable position during transport.
