Tentbox Lite 2.0

Weighing just 110 lbs and folding away into a small, stylish, square box, you’ll barely notice it on top of your car. This great all-rounder is a new and improved version that will fit on even the smallest sedans and SUVs. It takes less than 5 minutes to set up and will comfortably sleep 2 people. With upgraded materials and loads of feature upgrades such as a comfier dual-layer mattress, double skylights, a foot-friendly 'flat-step' ladder, and new a removable rainfly design meaning fewer poles, the TentBox Lite 2.0 sets a new standard for soft shell roof top tents.

Just like its little sister, the TentBox Lite 2.0 is made from steel-reinforced honeycomb-aluminum base panels with an aluminum framework and interlocking steel hinge. However, the difference between the two lies within the upgraded tent body made from 280gsm rip-stop polyester canvas, with a 3,000mm hydrostatic head rating, and the redesigned rainfly is made from 210D polyester, with a 5,000mm hydrostatic head rating. Both fabrics have C6 DWR (water-repellency), 2.400mm/24hr breathability, and UV50+ protection, meaning less sun bleaching and higher-rated rainproofing. It has also been upgraded with YKK outdoor zippers throughout, including waterproof zippers on the windows.

Tentbox Lite XL

This super-sized TentBox Lite XL is great for families, people with pets, or those who like extra space. The XL is huge inside, and can comfortably sleep 4 persons on the super-king dual-layer mattress. Despite its size, it only weighs 137 lbs, and the fold-up design means it’s really compact so you’ll barely notice it on your vehicle.

Set-up is easy and it can be opened and set up by a single person in 5 minutes. The travel cover is rolled up & stowed away after set-up, and the rainfly poles live in a drop-down pocket. Setup time is even quicker in ‘summer mode’, where the rainfly is removed for a more minimal look. No poles are required for ‘Summer mode’ and the tent is still showerproof if you keep the windows closed if it rains. The double skylight + large all-around fly-mesh covered windows mean amazing 360° views of your surroundings, the sunset, and the stars.

The TentBox Lite XL uses the same steel-reinforced honeycomb-aluminum base panel construction with an aluminum framework and interlocking steel hinge as the smaller Lite 1.0 and Lite 2.0 versions. The fabrics used for the Lite XL are identical to the Lite 2.0, which are the ultra-durable 280gsm rip-stop polyester canvas, with a 3,000mm hydrostatic head rating for the body, and the rainfly is made from 210D polyester, with a 5,000mm hydrostatic head rating. Both fabrics have C6 DWR (water-repellency), 2,400mm/24hr breathability, and UV50+ protection, meaning less sun bleaching and higher-rated rainproofing. The Lite XL is fitted with YKK outdoor zippers throughout, including waterproof zippers on the windows.

The TentBox Lite Series is excellent both for weekend warriors and longer overlanding trips. The tents have been specifically developed to fit small and medium size vehicles, so your daily driver can be turned into a great adventure platform in no time, no matter what you drive. This makes overlanding accessible to a much larger crowd, which is very much aligned with my own philosophy that you don't necessarily need a fully rigged 4x4 to go overlanding.

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. 


Apart from the above we of course also provide you with:  

  • Free Shipping to the lower 48 states, with no extra charges. Ever!
  • Price Match Guarantee. Best prices online, guaranteed.
  • 30-Day Easy Returns. Not happy with your product, we'll take it back no questions asked, and without charging you ANY restocking fee. Ever!
  • Great Service. We pride ourselves on the best service, anywhere.
  • Your Satisfaction Guaranteed. We handpick our products for quality to make sure you will love using them on your own adventures. But if there is ever something wrong, we'll fix it.
