Popular Questions About TentBox

We have all models on display at our Showroom, P J Nicholls Ltd Pershore Worcs WR10 2DJ, where you can see the set up and try them out.

Despite the name, a TentBox is more of a sleeping pod than a tent, and it’s just one step away from a campervan. You can sleep anywhere you can park your vehicle, including on hard surfaces like car parks or driveways, and don’t need to look for a flat grassy pitch.

They are also super quick to set up and come fitted with a mattress; depending on the model you choose, you can also leave your bedding laid out inside when driving so that it’s already made for you when you pop it open. 

Being high off the ground makes not only for amazing elevated views from the windows but also means you are well away from the cold, wet mud and creepy crawlies. The natural air barrier between the TentBox and the vehicle roof acts as an insulation barrier and means you stay warmer as the heat is not sucked into the ground. 

You can leave a TentBox on your vehicle all year round, which means you are ready for spontaneous adventures at the drop of a hat. 

The right TentBox model for you depends on your specific needs and circumstances. We have several models that cater to different preferences and requirements  

Put simply the TentBox Lite 1.0 is the entry level, fold out version, and the TentBox Lite 2.0 is a new and update model of this range.  

The TentBox Lite XL, is again a fold out version, but is massive inside.  

The TentBox Classic is a pop up model, so is very quick and easy to setup, and the TentBox Cargo is the quickest model to set up, and you can add a set of roof bars to the actual TentBox, and carry additional items on top of it.

The TentBox range vary in weight and size, so it is best to check the weight of the TentBox and compare it with your vehicle’s load limit. If you’re unsure, just get in touch, and we can help.  Each TentBox weight is listed below:

TentBox Lite 1.0 and 2.0: 50kg

TentBox Lite XL: 62kg

TentBox Classic: 64kg

TentBox Cargo: 74kg

TentBox models are attached to your vehicle using cross bars.  If your vehicle has roof rails, then the cross bars attach to these, if your vehicle does not have roof rails, then we can simply fit some cross bars.  We provide a fitting service, and can supply you with the correct roof bars, to match your TentBox and vehicle!

We are a family owned and run business, established in 1984.  As well as being an Official TentBox Dealer, we have Ford Authorised and SsangYong Authorised Sales and Aftersales Dealerships, in Tewkesbury, Evesham and Pershore.  We offer Nationwide Delivery, collection, and a comprehensive fitting service, at our Pershore Dealership.
