Premium Lightweight All Aluminum Clamshell Roof Top Tent

There's nothing quite like the feeling of being immersed in nature, with nothing but the wilderness surrounding you. With the Aspen Series Hard Shell Roof Top Tent from Freespirit Recreation, you're looking at the perfect way to elevate your next outdoor or overland adventure. 


This high-end Clamshell Roof Top Tent tent is crafted from top-quality materials and engineered with precision to give you the ultimate in outdoor luxury. With its spacious design, quick deployment, and incredible durability, the Aspen Hard Shell Roof Top Tent will quickly feel like your cozy home on the road on every camping trip or outdoor adventure.

Luxury And Convenience In The Wilderness With Lightning Fast Deployment

The Clamshell design of the Aspen Series is carefully engineered to provide you with maximum space and comfort, while still being compact and easy to transport. Even when you are exhausted from a full day of exploring, setting up camp is a breeze with the Aspen series. Simply unhinge the four adjustable latches on the aluminum honeycomb hard shell case, push up, and watch as the gas struts pop the tent up into place faster than you can say “I love my Aspen Clamshell tent”. All that remains is to extend the U-pole to enhance the headroom at the entrance and set the ladder and you are ready to kick back and enjoy the surroundings. 


Once inside you'll find one of the most spacious interiors of any Clamshell tent on the market, which can comfortably accommodate 2-3 persons, with enough space to move around and plenty of storage pockets to organize your smaller gadgets. This is thanks to the previously mentioned U-pole design that extends the entrance outwards, as well as supports the intelligently designed rainfly. The latter extends out and wraps perfectly around the tent covering all three doors, providing you with even more protection from the elements if the weather turns bad.  


The included Memory Foam mattress is comfortable and supportive and will ensure that you wake up feeling refreshed and energized ready for new adventures. With the built-in LED light, you have the option to set the right mood at night and it provides plenty of light to read, or for you to plan the next day's adventures, mountain bike routes, etc. It's also great in case you need to get up at night or if you need to pack your stuff before sunrise. 

Built For The Extremes

But the Aspen Series Hard Shell Roof Top Tent isn't just spacious, convenient, and fast to pitch, it's also designed to be incredibly durable. Made from carefully selected high-quality materials designed especially to withstand the toughest outdoor conditions, this Clamshell Roof Top Tent is built to last for years of adventures to come. The rugged durable design will withstand just about anything you or Mother Nature throw at it. Whether you are running into tree branches out on the trail, or using it in the rain, wind, or snow, you can count on the Aspen Series Hard Shell Roof Top Tent to keep you and your loved ones safe, warm, and dry.



Like its bigger brother, the Evolution V2 Hard Shell Roof Top Tent, the Aspen Clamshell Tent comes out of the box with the Tri-Layer waterproof RipStop fabric. This is not just designed to withstand the elements and keep you warm but also offers you a sense of security as you sleep under the stars, or in the howling winds. The breathable Tri-Layer construction is sonic-welded, moisture wicking and Poly Cotton filled, meaning that it works very similar to your premium down jacket, keeping you warmer in the winters and cooler in the summers. The Aspen Clamshell Roof Top Tent is no doubt a true 4 season tent.


The proprietary design of the underside of the tent is specifically engineered with an innovative weather-sealed pad to reduce condensation. This will make your tent last longer and significantly reduce the sensation of waking up in a damp and moist tent. The design also drastically reduces the overall weight making the Aspen Series one of the lightest All Aluminum Clamshell Roof Top Tents on the market at only 134 lbs. With its extremely low profile of only 7.5 inches, this tent will have a minimal impact on your gas mileage and will also allow you to get into your garage at home.


Available in two widths, 49" & 55", the Aspen fits almost any vehicle and adds increased mounting options with the optional crossbars or brackets, allowing you to load kayaks, mountain bikes, SUPs, etc. on top. Even the gas struts can be upgraded to heavy-duty if you want the option to load even heavier gear on top of your Aspen Clamshell Hard Top Tent.

Immerse Yourself In Nature 

Another part of what makes the Aspen Series so great is the sense of freedom and connection to nature you get looking out of those large windows. When sleeping in a hard shell roof top tent that's perched high above the ground, you'll feel like you're truly a part of the landscape around you. Whether you're gazing up at the stars on a clear night, listening to the sounds of the forest around you, or watching the sun rise over a breathtaking vista, you'll experience a level of outdoor immersion that you just can't get from a traditional tent on the ground. The only thing that would make you want to leave this tent in the morning is the sound of boiling water and the smell of freshly brewed coffee.


So if you're looking for a high-end, high-quality clamshell roof top tent that's built to last and provide a comfortable outdoor experience, the Aspen Series Hard Shell Roof Top Tent from Freespirit Recreation will be an excellent choice and a great long-term investment. 

Easy Installation

The Aspen Hard Shell Roof Top Tent will go on almost any vehicle, whether it's a small SUV, a sedan, a truck, or a Jeep this tent will fit on them all and it's compatible with most roof racks too.


Please ALWAYS check roof rack compatibility with the roof rack company directly before installing the tent as some racks are listed as "not compatible" with certain tent models.

Please note that it’s very important to check your owner's manual, or to contact your vehicle's manufacturer, to get information on vehicle load capacities and warranty information before installing the roof top tent. Here are a few questions to ask:

  • What’s the vehicle’s Static Weight Capacity? This confirms that your vehicle and your rack will support the weight of your tent, plus everyone in it and their sleeping gear.
  • What’s the vehicle’s Dynamic Weight Capacity? This is the force exerted on your car and rack while you're driving, so it will be a separate spec for your vehicle and rack. 

If you need help or have a question, just call us at 1 (888) 982 9050 or email us at

We get it. You've got a lot of choices when it comes to online retailers, so why should you even bother spending your hard-earned bucks shopping with us? 

Here are four short reasons why Open Road Overland is not like the rest of the bunch and why we believe that your shopping experience with us is not only 100% safe, but will also exceed your expectations, so you come back for more and maybe even bring your friends.


We use encrypted SSL security and are Level 1 PCI DSS compliant to ensure that your credit card information and every transaction on our website are 100% protected. 


We started overlanding in 1998, way before overlanding was even a term. Since then we have spent the last 25 years zig-zagging the planet trail testing the types of equipment you find in our store. In other words, we learned the hard way what works and what doesn’t, through hands-on experience during our own adventures on 6 continents (yes, we still haven’t made it to Antarctica). To ensure that we add value to your adventure with the products you shop with us, our policy is that nothing goes on our website before it has been thoroughly reviewed. This means that you will not find anything in our store that we would not bring along our use on our own overland adventures.


Secondly, we have been driving almost any type of vehicle you can think of over the years. This means that we have acquired a strong skill set to answer any question you have concerning your own vehicle setup, no matter whether you drive a standard passenger car, a pickup truck, or a fully rigged 4x4 overlanding vehicle. 


Thirdly, we strongly believe and promote that overlanding should be accessible to everybody, no matter what you drive, or what level of experience you have. That means that we can guide you as a novice overlander just starting out, as well as giving advice to you as an ultra pro with years of bushwhacking behind the wheel. That’s why you will also see both entry-level products, as well as top-of-the-line gear on our site, so we can cater to everybody looking to elevate their own overland adventures. No matter what, you can rest assured that the products you find in our store are here because they do the job they were made to do.
