Sleeping Under the Stars: Signs You're Ready to Elevate Your Swag to a Rooftop Tent

Sleeping Under the Stars: Signs You're Ready to Elevate Your Swag to a Rooftop Tent

We’ve all been there. Nestled in our swag, the romance of camping pulsating through our veins, until... is that a rock digging into your back? Or perhaps you’ve woken up to find an unexpected puddle inside your leaky old swag after a downpour. If these scenarios sound familiar, it might be time to upgrade to a rooftop tent for summer. Here are some signs that you're overdue for an upgrade from your traditional swag to the Penthouse rooftop tent.

  1. Your Back's Out More Than You Are

If you wake up from your sleeping bag or swag more twisted than a plotline in Netflix’s Ozark, it’s a sign. Bushwakka’s new Penthouse rooftop tent comes with a 7.5cm memory foam mattress, that’s like sleeping on a cloud. You can say goodbye to waddling around like you have rigor mortis.


  1. Local Wildlife Consider Your Swag a Timeshare

You know it's time to upgrade from your old traditional swag when you’re sharing with ants, beetles, and that overly friendly possum. A rooftop tent offers elevation. It’s like having a penthouse suite, and not every critter gets access. Less chance of coming in contact with angry goannas, dingos or wild boars.

  1. You Play "Guess the Mystery Puddle" 

Woke up in a puddle again, even though it’s not the rainy season? Surprise! Condensation loves traditional swags and canvas. Look for rooftop tents with interior ventilation and anti-condensation mats. And even though they’re waterproof, don’t forget to get them seasoned

  1. Your '5-Minute' Swag Setup Takes an Hour

If setting up your swag feels like assembling IKEA furniture without the manual, the quick and intuitive setup of a rooftop tent will feel like a revelation. It’s so simple with gas-assisted struts. No more having to tie down with pegs.


  1. Your Last Camping Trip Turned into an Episode of "Swag vs. Wild"

Between the gusty winds trying to carry you and your swag away and the curious wildlife, if your last camping trip felt like a survival show episode, consider upgrading.

  1. The Only Stars You See Are When You Stand Up Too Fast

If hitting your head every morning has become a ritual and you see stars more from these "accidents" than from the night sky, the spaciousness of a rooftop tent will be a game changer.

Camping is all about enjoying nature and having fun, but if your traditional old swag is becoming the main character in your camping mishaps, it might be time to ascend to greater heights (literally). Elevate your camping game with one of our inflatable swags or a rooftop tent, and enjoy the comfort, convenience, and comedy-free nights! Because let's face it, the only thing we want to be close to nature is our souls, not our spines.
