Overland Vehicle Systems Nomadic 2 Montana Extended Roof Top Tent Review
Why did we choose the Overland Nomadic 2 roof top tent for camping in Montana?
Benefits of roof tents in Montana
Montana’s weather varies a lot, and, depending on the time of the year and/or the place that you chose to camp in, some rooftop tents or tents, in general, might not be suited in order to get the best camping experience.
A rooftop tent must fill certain requirements in order to be the right choice here, these requirements are:
- The ability to withstand both high and low temperatures.
- Doesn’t leak water during heavy rainstorms.
- Its structure is capable of carrying the weight of snow, this is extremely useful when you’re camping while it is snowing outside at night, so you don’t need to go outside every 10 minutes in order to remove the snow that accumulates on top of the tent.
- Compatible with a large number of SUVs and sedans.
- Must also be compatible with the most popular roof racks on the market right now, which means the best selling roof racks online and in Montana.
- The Montana roof tent must also have windows for ventilation purposes (removing excess humidity and cooling during the hot months of summer).
- Internal storage: internal storage is useful because it allows for multiple necessary camping items to be installed in the internal space of the tent (dehumidifiers, portable lamps, heaters) and it also allows for the storage of various electronics (smartphones, tablets, laptops, etc…).
- And finally an AC port (not necessary as the previous requirements but helpful in the case it exists).
Thanks to its geography, Montana is blessed with a climate that is varied and fascinating at the same time.
This disparity in geography and topography makes Montana the perfect state for anyone that loves to camp at different altitudes and in different weather states.
Its climate can be very cool. during summer, the temperature can go up to 86 degrees, while in winter it goes down to 8 degrees.
The rainfall and snowfall are also varied depending on where you are located.
Some parts of Montana get 300 inches of snow on average every year, while other places get only 15 inches.
As for its geography, Montana consists of plains and a majority of mountainous terrain.
Montana is the fourth largest US state with a total area of 147000 square miles.
And as additional info that we used to answer the question of what is the best rooftop tent to use in Montana. The highest point in Montana is 12800 feet above the sea (the famous Granite peak).
The lowest point is 1800 above sea level (at a certain point on the Kootenai River).
Until now, we have the basic requirements, the Montana rooftop tent should be capable of withstanding different weather conditions. It should also be capable of being a transporter and be compatible with different types of SUVs in order to discover all the great areas in the state of Montana.
