The Tuff Stuff Alpine 51 Roof Top Tent features a dual-action opening roof. Open the rear section of the tent for a wedge or open the front section for a full pop-up and additional windows with screens. One person can deploy the Alpine in one minute for quick & easy setup and pack down!
The Alpine is constructed with durable antibacterial waterproof, high tear resistance, and stronger tensile than normal rooftop tent fabric. The Alpine is our ultimate aluminum rooftop tent that can withstand the elements for 4 season camping!

- Mounting your tent requires a minimum of 2 people for lifting. This Alpine may take three! She's not dainty.
- Position the tent on top of the vehicle's roof rack, bed rack, or trailer, and center it to your liking. If you have a hatchback make sure you have clearance to open the back.
- Using the supplied hardware and mounting plates, slide the hardware into the channel so there are 2 bolts per corner (one in front and one behind the vehicle's crossbars)
- Run the bolts through the holes of the mounting brackets, and thread nuts onto each bolt
- Confirm you are happy with the position of the tent, vehicle balance, and appearance then tighten all nuts to the brackets until the tent cannot move
- Locate the 2 latches at the rear of the tent
- Pull each red latch upward releasing its tension, then unhook the latch from the hook
- Push up on the handles and the tent will rise into a wedge shape on its own
- Locate the elastic cinch strap and pull it upward into the T-slot for storage
- Attach your ladder at the desired entry point
- For detailed ladder instructions, see Alpine Ladder Instructions
- Unzip the screen and fabric covers, rolling them up and securing them with the storage clips
- Deploy the included window awnings (see Window Awning Instructions) and Shoe Bags (see Shoe Bag Instructions)
- Climb into your tent in its wedge form and it’s ready to use
- Once your Alpine is in its wedge form, locate the 2 latches at the front of the tent and unlatch them from the frame of the tent
- Push up on the handles to transform the Alpine from a wedge to a full pop-up
- Locate the elastic cinch strap and pull it downward into the T-Slot for storage
- Unzip all the window covers to create a full-screen room, rolling up each fabric cover and securing with the storage clips
- Zip up all the fabric window covers to create a full dark room
- It is seriously dark w/all of the windows and doors zipped up... that sun is not going to ruin your plans to sleep in w/nature a bit.
Shipping / Delivery
Freight/Delivery times are 3-5 business days from our warehouse to the Destination Terminal, Final Delivery is by appointment (this is why we require a phone number) and varies based on the distance from the Destination Terminal and the Final Delivery address (your shipping address).
Do NOT miss your delivery once scheduled or you will be charged for rescheduling. We get charged and will pass the charge on to you.
Our tents ship via LTL and will ship separately from any other items in your cart. This means, if you also ordered an awning it will ship via Ground. This is why the phone number is so important. The LTL Freight Carrier will contact you via phone to work out a delivery time. No number no delivery. Missed travel time.
All tents INCLUDE shipping only to the lower 48 states. Tents must be sent via freight truck (not UPS or FedEx Ground) so please arrange an ideal location with easy access/and or forklift services to ensure no damage occurs in transit. A forklift is not required but definitely preferred.
For residential deliveries: The courier will only deliver to the sidewalk, driveway, or garage. A valid telephone number must be provided at the time of purchase. This needs to be a number that you can be reached at in order for the delivery driver to schedule a delivery time. Failure to provide a valid telephone number will result in your tent not being shipped until we can make contact with you.
If you cannot arrange to be available or fail to respond to the carrier, your tent will be returned to our warehouse and the return freight charges will be applied to your credit card.
Lastly, if you see damage to the tent packaging take pictures immediately. Refuse delivery. If you do not see any outer damage but find concealed damage once you open the packaging, stop, take pictures, and report the damage to us immediately. All damage must be reported within 24 hours. Make sure to take pictures of the packaging, the crate, the tent, anything that will provide context for the damage.
