Autohome has decades of experience in the production of roof tents. He is one of the world leaders. The most famous awning produced by Autohome is the Maggiolina. Many people still call any roof tent for the car a "maggiolina".
Roof tent for Maggiolina car.
the Maggiolina is the best known roof tent in Italy.
It has been produced by the Zifer company of Rivarolo Mantovano for decades.
This roof tent is characterized by two fiberglass shells, one closed over the other through a pantograph mechanism moved by an external crank applicable at the time of opening and closing.
The awning is attached to the car thanks to two rails incorporated in it 8In the lower shell) and to the roof bars of the car.
Once the opening handle of the Maggiolina awning has been activated, the synthetic Dralon fabric extends to become the walls.
Once opened, the door opens, the ladder is extracted, the latter is applied and the game is done. It can go up.
Inside you will find a cozy mattress and pillows (and you can store your sleeping bag or blanket inside).
Have a good trip!
Aircamping car roof tent.
Air Camping is the book opening tent. To open it, the protective waterproof PVC sheet is removed, the ladder is pulled and the tent opens. The tent is thus suspended partly on the car and partly on the ladder which rests on the ground.
Inside it is very spacious and high compared to other models (for example the Maggiolina). It is more than 130 cm high and you can change comfortably. The mattress is 220 cm long, the width varies according to the model.
There are 2 windows and 2 large openings to enter/exit and circulate the air, all equipped with mosquito nets!
The fabrics are waterproof and breathable.
The aircamping is probably the first car roof top tent ever made. Its first production dates back to 1959.
Today some technical construction techniques and materials change.
The Columbus tent by Autohome differs from the Maggiolina mainly in the type of opening.
In fact, the Columbus rises, thanks to pistons, only on one side.
As for the Maggiolina, there are different sizes: the small and the medium.
