Our vision is to bring the camaraderie, wonder, and adventure of the great outdoors closer to every customer.

At Roofnest, we believe escaping from your daily routine and immersing yourself in nature refreshes, relaxes, and reminds you of what’s most important.

That’s why it’s our mission to make camping accessible, convenient, and comfortable for outdoor explorers of every experience level by designing durable and easy-to-use hard shell roof top tents.

Meet Roofnest Founder Tim Nickles

Meet Roofnest Founder Tim Nickles

Tim Nickles, the Founder of Roofnest, is a 25-year Boulder resident who was practically raised outdoors. He spent his childhood traversing the Alaskan wilderness with hiking boots on his feet and camping gear on his back, strapping on his first pair of skis when he was barely 3 years old.

From a young age, Tim understood how being immersed in nature can shape who we are, and inspire who we want to be.

As he grew older and began to explore further — spending winters skiing in Chamonix, France, and summers mountain biking in Boulder — Tim came to appreciate how his camping gear was the key to accessing the outdoor lifestyle he’d been raised to love. Thus began his lifelong pursuit of modifying, designing, and creating outdoor camping gear that made packing up and sleeping under the stars easier and more comfortable than ever.

Using his first rooftop tent was a turning point for Tim. As an avid outdoor adventurer, a rooftop tent provided a night’s sleep as comfortable as his own bedroom — only to open his window and be greeted by fresh mountain air and awe-inspiring Alpine peaks. All this, without ever having to compete for a campsite, find a flat surface, or pitch a single pole.

From that moment, Tim knew rooftop tents would be a lifelong obsession. And in his typical spirit of improvement, he was quick to invest his time and expertise into designing a superior hardshell rooftop tent.

This is where Roofnest was born: from the love of leaving daily life behind and spending more hours discovering the breathtaking adventures and unforgettable memories that nature has to offer.
