Tuff Stuff Alpine Fiftyone Aluminum Shell Roof Top Tent

Like sleeping in your personal, comfortable cave in the wilderness. The Alpine series are made with blackout coated fabric so you can zip up your windows and sleep in complete darkness.


If darkness isn't your thing, interior LED lights (USB power pack not included) will illuminate the Memory foam mattress.

On top of the tent is a built-in roof rack great for transporting kayaks, gear, and bikes. 


The Alpine is constructed with durable antibacterial waterproof, high tear resistance, and stronger tensile than normal roof top tent fabric. The Alpine is our ultimate aluminum roof top tent that can withstand the elements for 4 season camping!

Mounting Tent

  1. Mounting your tent requires a minimum of 2 people for lifting. This Alpine may take three! She's not dainty.
  2. 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.
  3. 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)
  4. Run the bolts through the holes of the mounting brackets, and thread nuts onto each bolt
  5. 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

The Wedge

  1. Locate the 2 latches at the rear of the tent
  2. Pull each red latch upward releasing its tension, then unhook the latch from the hook
  3. Push up on the handles and the tent will rise into a wedge shape on its own
  4. Locate the elastic cinch strap and pull it upward into the T-slot for storage
  5. Attach your ladder at the desired entry point
    1. For detailed ladder instructions, see Alpine Ladder Instructions
  6. Unzip the screen and fabric covers, rolling them up and securing them with the storage clips
  7. Deploy the included window awnings (see Window Awning Instructions) and Shoe Bags (see Shoe Bag Instructions)
  8. Climb into your tent in its wedge form and it’s ready to use

The Pop-Up

  1. 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
  2. Push up on the handles to transform the Alpine from a wedge to a full pop-up
  3. Locate the elastic cinch strap and pull it downward into the T-Slot for storage
  4. Unzip all the window covers to create a full screen room, rolling up each fabric cover and securing with the storage clips
  5. Zip up all the fabric window covers to create a full dark room
  6. 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.

A Game Changer for Me

I am a twenty-something, mildly athletic, 6’5” tall, mechanical engineer. I know… that’s not the most deprived description. Nonetheless, I also am, as I so jokingly say, “differently-abled”. At 15 years old, in the midst of a high speed car accident, my face bravely battled against a Camry dashboard. The result, is I now live with a TBI or traumatic brain injury. My symptoms range from migraines, to memory loss, to hallucinations. One of the most prevalent however is an extremely low tolerance to bright lights. I basically live with the drawbacks of vampirism with none of the sparkly heart-throb benefits I have camped my entire life. I’ve backpacked across Yosemite and deep into Glacier National Park. I’ve spent probably close a hundred nights in my previous Smittybilt Gen 1 roof top tent (RTT) and hundreds more in ground tents. My injury has affected my ability to go on extremely prolonged trips, but I’ve stubbornly refused for it to keep me indoors. To be clear, I had no intention of purchasing THIS tent. Overland Expo West was just opening, and I was meandering about. However, the dual hinge design caught my eye and I wandered over. I briefly explained my situation and the Tuff Stuff reps enthusiastically explained to me the blackout material that lines the inside of the tent. A couple months later and FedEx delivers a pallet to my house. The tent is impressively protected. If there were instructions included, I failed to find them in my frenzied unboxing. While on the ground, I made sure to install the roof rack. The “rack” consists of 2 rails (I hope they allow you to buy more if you need). The build quality is impressive. Every handle, rail, bracket, etc are all extremely heavy duty. The aluminum shell seems likely to survive all but the worst of adventures. Tuff Stuff lists the tent at 248 pounds, but after installing it, I wonder if that was total shipping weight because it did not feel that heavy. Nonetheless, weight could certainly have been sacrificed in places. Instead, Tuff Stuff seems to have focused on making premium and durable product. Once on the vehicle, my partner and I headed North of Williams, AZ. It was time to put this tent through its paces. The road noise was minimal on the drive. We arrived and my partner asked if she could try opening the tent on her own. She suffers from an autoimmune disease (I know, a disabled duo) and her mobility/strength can be affected immensely. The Smittybilt tent can be difficult for her to close and she is usually unable to get the cover over it. However, the simple toggle latches on this tent meant she could open the tent in literal seconds. Climbing inside, it certainly pushed my expectations of camping. The interior is well thought out with pockets everywhere including overhead. The ceiling is clad in the same soft fabric as the mattress. There is an LED light strip with a dimmer control. This I greatly appreciated, as the blinding LED strip in the Smittybilt was seldom used. The mattress is roughly the same thickness as the Smittybilt. The memory foam material is nicer, but if you’re a side sleeper, you’ll probably still need another pad. The dual hinge design means that the internal volume of the tent is much greater than that of an Alu-Cab. Our dog is able to sleep at our feet without issue. While the first night was calm, the reason we chose this site was because it was expected to snow and howl the next night. The final weather report put sustained winds at 28 mph and gusts well over 50 mph. The low was around 26 Fahrenheit, with the rain turning to snow shortly after the sun went down. It was intense enough that without cover from rocks or trees, it may have retired a ground tent camper back into their vehicle. We parked the tent facing into the wind, to cut the cross-section as small as possible. The hinges have some play in them, but I was impressed with the overall stability of the ceiling. The side fabric would slap back and forth making noise, but drastically less than my Smittybilt would have (that tent can almost require ear protection in bad storms). This brings me to the most important feature for me. Normally camping, I am awoken by the first sign of sunlight. No matter how much I cover my face, those bright morning rays seem to find a way to make themselves known. For me, that means a head splitting migraine first thing every morning. I get up, put on a set of special sunglasses and wait for it to subside. However, this tent is truly nearly completely dark inside. You wouldn’t notice a helicopter spotlight on you. It means no matter where I am, I have a dark space to recover. I personally am in a situation where the restricting factor on any trip isn’t the capabilities of my vehicle, my finances, or my time. It is me. This tent helps alleviate some of that. If you are looking to make an investment into a hard shell RTT, for whatever personal reasons you may have, then this is an excellent option.

Super Nice!

The Alpine 51 has been the most luxurious tent I've owned. The mattress is like a slice of my Tempur-Pedic I have at home, my shoulders and hips don't bottom out and I'm not sore in the mornings at all. The blackout coated fabric is also a game changer for me, it's literally pitch black during the day when it's all zipped up. But I can unzip all the windows and it's basically a full 360° screen room. I will say, I was concerned about the weight of the tent, but have learned that the way the weight is spread out across the roof line makes wheeling very easy, it doesn't feel top heavy at all. I actually have it mounted on my daily driver SUV full time and hardly notice it's mounted. Thanks Tuff Stuff for all the knowledge and support, it's been a smooth and very helpful experience overall, couldn't be happier with the Alpine (and 270 awning!)
