Bring on Summer with Yakima!
The new Yakima SkyRise Roof-Top Tent is the latest addition to the adventuring tools offered here at Ski Haus. With summer right around the corner, we are all gearing up for our warm weather excursions.
Whatever your pleasure, be it mountain biking, backpacking, climbing, fishing, etc. most of us have found ourselves looking for a comfy place to crash while on the road, the trail, or just off the beaten path.
My Jeep is a trusted adventuring buddy, and has taken me to some amazing places, but has not always provided the most comfortable (or convenient) place to sleep. Because my budget won’t currently support a new 4WD Sprinter Van, I started researching rooftop tents. I ended up purchasing the Yakima SkyRise.
We have a lot of experience with high-end camping and backpacking gear here at Ski Haus, so quality of construction and materials was a major consideration when trying to find the right tent (for both my personal use and to offer here at the store).
Yakima is synonymous with quality and certainly no stranger to vehicle-mounted equipment, so I was intrigued when I learned that they were going to offer a roof-top tent. After looking at several different brands, the SkyRise proved to be lighter, and far more user-friendly compared to similar tents on the market, especially when it comes to installing and removing from the vehicle.
The SkyRise is compatible with a variety of different vehicle sizes and types. Stop by the ‘Haus to check them out and see if your adventuring rig is ready for a serious upgrade! As spring turns into summer, my tent will be accompanying me on more and more adventures, so stay tuned for updates! The new SkyRise is currently in-stock at the ‘Haus!
