The Redtail Rooftop Camper is a state-of-the-art carbon fiber tent/camper hybrid offering the freedom of a rooftop tent with the security and amenities of a hard-sided camper.
Redtail Overland’s new Redtail Rooftop Camper (RTC) features three hard sides between an insulated carbon fiber floor and roof. With the push of a button, the hinged walls fold in on themselves in 30 seconds, and the design eliminates the typical use of canvas on the door with the installation of sliding polycarbonate windows with screens.
The Redtail RTC also features modern conveniences of up to 330 watts of solar power provided by rooftop solar panels, up to 60-amp hour lithium battery bank and a diesel heater. The solar and battery package allows the camper to operate completely independent of the vehicle and means that there are no wires to deal with when installing the RTC. These features add weight to the camper, but much of that is offset by the carbon fiber structure.
There will be two models of the RTC available. The Redtail 90 sleeps two adults and is designed for mid-size SUVs and beyond. When closed, the Redtail 90 measures 90” x 56” x 10” and opened it measures 90” x 56” x 60” with 82” x 53” x 57” of living space. The 90 weighs only 190 pounds. The Redtail 110 has room for two adults and two kids and is best suited for pickup trucks, vans, and adventure trailers. The 110 measures 110” x 60” x 10” when closed and 110” x 60” x 65.5” when open with 101” x 57” x 62” of living space and weighs in at only 250 pounds. The Redtail 110 is $25,000 and the Redtail 90 is $20,000.
Co-founder and CEO of Redtail, Ty Tatro, said, “At Redtail, we strive to create the ultimate user experience by combining intuitive functionality, the highest quality components, and cutting-edge features and style. The Redtail RTC was created with this philosophy in mind and we believe it’s truly something special.”
