Off-Road Shop Becomes East Coast Distributor of Hard-Shell Rooftop Tents
New Jersey-based off-road and overlanding shop OK4WD is now the East Coast distributor of Autohome products.
Autohome pioneered roof top tents in 1958 with the Air-Camping and Maggiolina models.
“We’re excited to work with the leader in hardshell roof top tents,” said Jim Oostdyk, president of OK4WD. “Unlike other companies that produce fiberglass roof top tents, Autohome tents are TUÌˆV Rheinland certified and use a superior breathable fabric which doesn’t require the use of electronics to remove moisture. Moisture is the number one issue inside of roof top tents and contributes to discomfort, mold, and mildew growth, especially in porous materials.”
While not known much outside of Europe, the TUÌˆV SUÌˆD certification guarantees the quality of the tent and its safety while driving, something the ISO corporation certification lacks, according to the company.
“We are continuously searching for the industry’s best products,” Oostdyk added. “We have hands on experience with nearly all the most common roof top tents in the market. Autohome’s superior design, fit and finish along with the rigorous TUÌˆV SUÌˆD certification puts it above the rest. There’s a reason why they are and have been the leader in the market since 1958.”
“Our position as exclusive distributor of AutoHome products and our 15 year relationship with Autohome has put us in the forefront of the rising growth in the overloading market,” said Michael Spies, CEO of AutoHomeUSA. “We are proud to partner with OK4WD in delivering our products on the East Coast. This will bring many benefits to customers that have been, until now, at a considerable distance from our West Coast distribution facility.
AutoHome’s 60 years of global leadership in developing, testing, refining, and manufacturing best quality roof top tents has set them apart from other providers.”
