James Baroud Horizon Vision Rooftop Tent

(1 customer review)


NOW AVAILABLE in 2-person (1.5) and 4-person (1.8) sizes!

The Horizon Vision has set the bar for innovation and evolution as the first folding rooftop tent in the world with assisted opening via gas-charged struts. The Horizon Vision is also the lightest rooftop tent in the world due to a full aluminum structure, aluminum-composite floor with insulating interior layer, and no need for a noisy rainfly. The unique design of the Horizon Vision also makes it the only folding tent in the world to offer clear waterproof windows on the front and rear as well as corner windows, increasing airflow and providing great panoramic views. When closed the Horizon Vision is protected by a heavy travel cover that attaches via thick elastic cords, eliminating the need for difficult zippers. Access to the tent is easily gained by using the telescoping ladder that comes standard with all James Baroud rooftop tents.

All James Baroud roof top tents are designed to fit to the roof bars of most vehicles and can be removed and stored when not needed. The Horizon Vision tent is covered by a 3 year guarantee on the fabric, hull and mechanism.

James Baroud Horizon Vision Features

  • Light grey canvas, made of 6 aluminized coats that reflect the sun’s rays.
  • UV resistant and waterproof but breathable.
  • All seams are doubled and 100% waterproofed.
  • Two canvas doors with insect screening are closed by zippers and velcro.
  • Four large canvas windows with exterior insect screens.
  • Four removable interior storage pockets.
  • Mattress made of high density foam protected by a zipped cover for easy removal and cleaning.

Automatic Opening
The opening of the Horizon Vision is a simple task thanks to the gas-charged struts that automatically open. Closing the tent is just as simple: the canvas has built-in rubber bands which help keep the tent fabric retracted while closing.

The Fabric
We guarantee you won’t find a better fabric on any roof top tent. All of our tents utilize aluminized polyester with an acrylic coating which is 100% waterproof, breathable, UV resistant, non-perishable, and reflects the sun’s rays. This means it will stand up for years of use without issue. All openings feature mosquito netting, quality metal zippers, added velcro fastening. The Nomad 160 also features four removal interior storage pockets.

The Horizon Vision features two canvas doors with insect screens. These are closed by zippered sides and secured with velcro at the bottom. There are also four large windows with built-in rain covers which allow exceptional airflow.
