The roof tent is a major innovation that lets you camp anywhere and everywhere by attaching it to the roof of your car.

We are here to support you if you have a question or problem with your MH500 roof tent, giving you advice on its use, maintenance and repair.

I maintain my roof top tent


Do not use any cleaning products to wash your tent, but rather plain or soapy water if necessary. Make sure you rinse it well when you've finished.


It is important to dry your tent well after cleaning it to avoid traces of mildew.
If you have room at home, assemble it completely, open all the doors so that it dries quicker.
Finally, remember to dry the cover.


Store your tent in a dry place at room temperature. Remember to close the front door to prevent your tent from being too tight when you put it up again.

Restoring the waterproof properties

Several factors can affect the waterproofness level of your tent, such as exposure to the sun, friction inside the cover or even natural wear.
Therefore, we advise you to apply a waterproofing spray on the canvas at least once a year.

Your first adventures: our useful information

How do you know that your tent is well in place, before driving off?

Check that your tent is centred laterally and front-to-back in relation to your vehicle. 

Also make sure that you can open the boot safely when you position it on your vehicle before finishing to screw it in place.

To check that the tent is correctly attached, make sure you have followed the instructions correctly and that you have not forgotten the washers.

The plate holding the tent to the roof bars must be slightly deformed by the tension.

What are the dimensions of my roof top tent?

Dimension of the cover:146 x 123 x 35 cm

The room measures (l) 140 x (L) 240 x (h) 106 cm

The mattress is 140 x 235 x 5 cm with a density of 26kg/m3

What is the maximum weight load? 

The roof tent weighs 45 kg plus an additional 7 kg for the ladder.

The ladder can carry a maximum load of 130 kg.

The tent is designed for 2 people and a maximum weight of 200 kg.

It’s suitable for 2 people and a small child.

What type of roof bar is compatible with this tent?

This roof tent is compatible with roof bars that can support a load of 75 kg and have an effective width >78 cm. Please note that the tent should never be fitted on the vehicle’s original bars as they can't support the load.

Please note that this 75 kg load capacity is a so-called "dynamic" load, i.e. when the vehicle is moving. When the vehicle is stationary, the maximum load capacity is much higher. Don't worry, once installed and stationary, your roof bars will be able to support the roof tent, as well as the weight of the people inside (200 kg in total).

What is the maximum speed you can do with your tent on your roof?

We recommend a maximum speed of 130km/h.

How to prevent condensation?

Recurring rain throughout the day, hot air that persists when the outside temperature drops, body heat… these are factors that can create condensation inside your tent. To avoid this phenomenon, here's some advice:

- Open the vents of your tent as much as possible, even when it's raining

- Avoid any creases when pitching your tent, as these favour the concentration of water drops

- Do not pitch your tent too close to a water point but rather in a sheltered place where temperature and humidity are regulated.

To remove the condensation already present, gently wipe off the droplets with a cloth and ventilate your tent as much as possible. Open the door and leave it in a dry place so that it can dry.

You can also supplement your roof tent with an under-mattress to create an additional air circuit.

What is the Fresh & Black technology?

More freshness and darkness to sleep better! Fresh & Black is a technology patented by Decathlon which allows the sun's rays to reflect and isolate light using specific materials. Therefore, we reduce the feeling of heat in your tent. To make the most of this technology, don't forget to ventilate your tent in the evening!

Where can you camp with your roof top tent?

You can settle in a campsite of course, but also in areas where there is no mention of a ban on camping. Applications such as HomeCamper make it possible to park on private land for a small fee.

However, if you prefer" natural surroundings," check that you're not on private land or staying in a nature reserve, and that you're not disturbing anyone.
