Table of the Best Car Tents for Camping

Powder-coated steel legs gives long lasting support and have foot pads for increased stability. This tent stands 8 feet 9 inches tall and creates a sheltered space of 200 square feet. The Caravan Canopy Carport weighs in at 58.2 pounds and that is about it for this one, nothing special here, but you shouldn’t expect anything special from this lower-end spectrum of tents.

9. Abba Patio Heavy Duty Portable Car Canopy Shelter
If it wasn’t for the quality of these products, we wouldn’t be talking about it this much, but Abba Patio is returning to our list with a tent in the more premium category. This one is a 12 x 20 feet white polyethylene tent that features 8 1.5 inch steel legs and 3 removable panels. The polyethylene cover extends to cover the sides for maximum protection from the elements. The walls created by the cover can be detached depending on the weather condition. The versatility of this one makes it great for travelling because you can remove the 3 panels and take it with you.
8. Abba Patio 10×20 Portable Garage Car Canopy Shelter
This one is just continuing the trend, a premium, Abba Patio tent. This is a Beige, 143-pound tent, featuring 8 1.5 inch steel legs. At 9.4 Feet it is a pretty tall tent. It creates 200 square feet of sheltered area. Heavy-duty bungee cords are included in the package to keep the cover of the tent in place. I would have nothing to complain about this one because it just looks gorgeous with the beige finish, plus, it is a very premium, robust tent which doesn’t need much assembling.
7. The Quictent 20×10 Waterproof Car Canopy Tent
The Quictent Heavy Duty Car Carport is another lower end one. It comes in at 8.7 feet tall and 79 pounds in height. The frame is made out of 1.5-inch thick steel and your car is protected from UV light and water. After all, no one wants a car with rusted and UV-light exposed paint. Besides all that this one should fit a pretty big vehicle inside because of its 8.7-foot tallness. Extra-thick polyethylene cover is used for long-term protection and maximum durability. The cover won’t tear and has excellent waterproof and UV-resistant qualities.

6. Qisan Metal Carport Canopy Car Tents with Sidewalls
This one is again following the lower end portable car canopy trend. This one comes in at 10 x 20 feet, and 38.9 pounds hence it is advertised as “calm environment only”, and you should really listen to that, after all, you don’t want your tent flying all over the neighbourhood. That set aside this one sport a white powder-coated iron framework. At that 38.9 pound mark, I wouldn’t be able to find a reason not to buy it if I would need a really portable and convenient car tent.
