MINI worked with Italian automobile roof tent company Autohome, to create an OEM-quality product, specifically designed for the car, that’s big enough to comfortably sleep two people – perfect for escaping the everyday routine. A special edition of the AirTop roof tent model is now available directly from the manufacturer in white or black. The tent is offering a perfect contrast against the roof and outside mirrors of the new Countryman. You may also review other roof tent at

The rain-proof roof tent model looks like a conventional roof box when it closed, along with fiberglass housing and aerodynamic lines for the minimal air resistance and noise. The highlight of the rain-proof tent include a two doors and two windows with zips, high-density mattress with cotton cover, close-meshed mosquito nets at all openings and luggage nets and pockets to stow personal items, as well as a battery-operated LED interior light. The roof tent is then raised when in use by means of just four gas pressure springs.

A special edition tent attachment system simply mounted on this carrier without any tool. This rain-proof roof tent rail carrier provides a solid foundation, which is fixed stably and securely using steel clamps.

The rain-proof rooftop tent is around 7 feet long and 4.2 feet wide, so it’ll be enough for two campers. A solid aluminum ladder is also provided to climb up onto the top of the MINI ‘countryman’. The MINI-inspired roof tent is an interesting solution to outdoor adventure sleeping, that is for sure.

The AirTop roof tent is available from Autohome in black or white to match the contrasting roof and mirror caps of the Countryman. It is cost at US$3,100.
