autohome designs a roof tent for the MINI countryman

for spontaneous use, italian specialist autohome has created a roof tent that matches both the look of the MINI ‘countryman’ and the brand’s design. in the eventuality that not just the road comes to an end but the day, too, there is now the option of a place to spend the night – perfect for escaping the everyday routine.

with a stable cover and outer walls in special high-quality fabric, autohome’s tent is rain proof, offers optimum ventilation properties, plus a high level of heat and noise insulation. the features of the roof tent include a high-density mattress with cotton cover, two doors and two windows with zips, close-meshed mosquito nets at all openings and a battery-operated LED interior light, as well as luggage nets and pockets to stow personal items. the interior height of the mobile home is 94 centimetres. a solid aluminum ladder is provided to climb up onto the top floor of the MINI ‘countryman’.



mounting the mobile shelter is facilitated by the standard roof rails on the ‘countryman’, allowing campers to use the model-specific roof rail carrier. the roof tent attachment system can be mounted on this carrier in a few easy moves without the need for tools. this roof rail carrier provides a solid foundation for the roof tent attachment, which is fixed stably and securely using steel clamps. when closed, the roof tent looks just like a conventional transport box. the aerodynamically optimized lines of its fiber-glass housing ensure a reduction in air resistance and wind noise. opening it is simply a matter of releasing the safety clasps – two at the front, and one at the rear. the tent superstructure is then automatically raised via four gas pressure springs.



a ‘special edition’ of the airtop roof tent model was designed in cooperation with the MINI design team and is now available from the manufacturer in black or white, in-keeping with the contrasting colors for roof and outside mirror caps for the ‘countryman’. autohome has more than 50 years of experience in developing and making automobile roof tents, and its products are used both in the leisure sector and on professional expeditions.

  • Just purchased the auto home for my Mini Countryman .Concerned about the height when going into car parks .my local car part takes up to 6f 4inches ,will this be high enough foe the country man carrying the auto Home?
