Introducing the LT- 50 lightweight tent – The best ultralight rooftop tent on the market with the same build quality as all our other products. You don’t need to be an overlander to live your best life, the LT-50 opens up a new opportunity of vehicle applications. It pops up within seconds, you can keep your bedding inside and it can carry a 30kg load up top. One of the standout features of the Alu-Cab rooftop tent is its lightweight construction and it has a nut slot lid and base frame for easy mounting of accessories such as awnings, shower cubes, ladder brackets, spades etc. The tent is made from lightweight, high-strength aluminum, which makes it easy to install and transport.

Overall, the Alu-Cab lightweight rooftop tent is an excellent choice for adventurers who value durability, convenience, and comfort.

The LT-50 is the ideal tent for vehicles typically unable to support the Gen-3 range of tents, such as Subaru Outback / Crosstrek, Toyota Rav4 and many more! The LT-50 is not intended to replace the Gen 3-R, but rather be a more weekend lifestyle alternative for customers who do not require the full features of the 3-R.

The load rating for the cargo rails on the rooftop tent roof is 30kg. It is important to note that where the load is located on the roof, will determine how easy or difficult it is to open the tent. It is always suggested to shift heavier loads towards the front of the tent, and much lighter loads, like a solar panel, to the rear. Please ensure to check dynamic load rating of your vehicle before placing additional weight to the LT-50.

Alu-Cab advises to not exceed the speed limit of 120kmh.
