Tuff Stuff Alpha Rooftop Tent


Introducing Tuff Stuff's Alpha™ Rooftop tent. Unique for a larger tent as it is a hybrid style, side-opening, tent with comfortable accommodations of up to four (4) people.


As a hybrid this tent provides the convenience of a hard shell paired with the spacious comfort of a soft shell RTT. Its sloped shell provides a higher profile, allowing you to keep your bedding inside the tent when closing it up, unlike other tents where you must remove the bedding. With windows on three sides, you can immerse yourself in the breathtaking views of the wilderness.


The built in mattress (87"x71") is roughly the size of a California King bed. Equipped with LED lights for both interior and exterior, you can create a welcoming ambiance.

Tuff Stuff Alpha Rooftop Tent

As a universal rooftop tent, the Alpha™ only requires crossbars that can handle 190+ Lbs. of weight and must be at least 30" apart for proper support. For pickup trucks, we highly recommend using a truck bed rack instead of placing the Alpha™ directly on the truck's roof. Explore the world with the Tuff Stuff Alpha™ and experience camping like never before. Available in Black and Gray.

Mounting & Maintenance


1) Ensure you have a minimum of 2 people to lift the tent during mounting.
2) Place the tent on top of your vehicle's roof rack, bed rack, or trailer, ensuring it is positioned on the passenger side and centered to your preference.
3) Utilize the included hardware and mounting plates to slide the hardware into the channel, placing 2 bolts per corner (one in front and one behind the vehicle's crossbars).
4) Thread nuts onto each bolt through the mounting bracket holes.
5) Double-check the tent's position, vehicle balance, and appearance, then securely tighten all nuts to the brackets, preventing any movement of the tent.
6) Unfasten the buckles on the tent's side, and push up on the handle to activate the hydraulic rams, allowing the tent's hard shell to open.
7) Extend the telescoping ladder by pulling it out until it is fully extended, and adjust it to your preferred height and angle.
8) Install the supplied tension rods on the tent's overhang and windows, open the door, and begin get camping!




The Clear coat on the Alpha shells is a clear layer of paint sprayed on the ABS shell to protect it from UV rays, rocks, and dirt kicked up from the road. The clear coat will wear off with time and can also be chipped off by salt, road debris, and nature. You can protect your clear coat by regular washing and waxing.

Tips to protect your clear coat

Keep out of the sun as much as possible
Over time, the powerful UV rays in direct sunlight can wear down the clear coat.
Hot sunlight can also open small “pores” in your clear coat, allowing more dirt and debris to get in. So, to protect the clear coat and lengthen its lifespan, park in a garage or in the shade whenever possible.

Clear off bird and bug droppings immediately
Bird droppings are highly acidic. If they’re left on the clear coat, they can erode and destroy the layer of clear coat. If you spot any bird or bug droppings, rinse them off immediately with water from a hose.

Protect your clear coat from salty air
Salt will corrode the clear coat. So, if you live in a salty coastal climate, keep in mind that you will need to wash off/rinse your shell the same as you would a surfboard. Salty air and spray are some of the biggest nemeses of clear coating.

Avoid getting tree sap on your vehicle
For most, the risk of getting tree sap on your car is much lower than the risk of encountering bird droppings or salty air. However, tree sap is a double threat: the sap can soak into your clear coat and damage it directly, or it can attract dust and dirt and force these materials into your clear coat.

Hand wash and apply wax regularly
Washing will remove dust and dirt that stick to the clear coat over the course of driving. Dirt will quickly wear down your clear coat, so removing the dirt frequently will protect the clear coat and lengthen its lifespan.

Many automotive companies sell special clear-coat protection products that seal and protect your clear coat. To apply the product, simply rub it into the clear coat with a microfiber cloth. Follow the directions printed on the bottle and apply the clear-coat protection roughly as often as you wash your vehicle. You can purchase clear-coat protection products at any large automotive-supply store or online.

Cracked Shell (Life Happens)


  • Clean area with soap, water, and plastic cleaner.
  • Grind damaged area, then repair with a PlastiFix® Rigid Plastic Repair Kit or similar product.
  • Prime.
  • Paint.

PlastiFix® is an optimal repair method. Weld repairs may be backed with epoxy for extra strength.

Clean Surface

In order to maximize the strength of any repair, thoroughly clean contaminants from the surface in the damaged area.

  • Clean both sides with soap and water. Dry with a clean cloth or compressed air.
  • Spray Plastic Cleaner onto the surface and wipe off while wet with a clean, lint-free cloth. Wipe in one direction to avoid spreading contaminants back over the clean area.

Align Damage and Deformation

If the plastic is distorted, heat with a heat gun and reshape the distorted area. When heating plastic, it is important that the plastic be heated all the way through. Hold the heat gun on the area until the opposite side of the plastic is uncomfortable to the touch. Once heated, force the plastic back into position with a small roller or other appropriate tool, then cool the area with a damp cloth. Stretched areas can be shrunk with the shell cold. Keep working until smooth, then sand overall with 80 grit to help identify remaining low spots. Push out remaining low spots and repeat the process.

If the damaged area is cut or torn to the edge, align the cosmetic surface with Aluminum Body Tape and begin the repair process on the back. By aligning the outer surface, you minimize the amount of filler required to restore the proper profile to the part.

The instructions don't tell you

The instructions don't tell you how to attach the handle, but there are helpful videos online. Otherwise, it couldn't be easier to install, and the quality seems to be amazing!

Jennifer Johnson
My boyfriend and I have

My boyfriend and I have been impatiently waiting for the arrival of our tuff stuff overland tent and it was well worth the wait. We could not be happier with the ease of set up, how spacious it is, and all the wonderful features it has. Now we can camp and even start overlanding in style. Look no further for a roof top tent!

Finally got to use it

Finally got to use it last weekend. Outstanding base camp! Getting to dog onboard was a little challenging, but she likes it to.

Alpha is big enough for 3 adult and 1 kids. I love it. However it is little bit heavy to install.
