Quechua MH900 inflatable roof tent

The French retailer, Decathlon, does a great job of bringing affordable, good-quality outdoor equipment to the masses, at affordable prices. Its Quechua inflatable family tents are hugely popular because they are innovatively designed and well made, but are priced at a level that makes them within easy reach of most people.
The MH900 rooftop tent is another example of a Quechua product that works brilliantly but comes in at a great price. Post-Covid, roof tents are growing in popularity. They are a great alternative if you fancy the freedom a campervan offers but don’t fancy splashing out tens of thousands of pounds to live vanlife.
The MH900 is a two-berth tent that can be fully inflated in no time, and, when it comes to packing away, it can be deflated in an instant. It will fit easily to most cars and, because it is relatively compact, you can still attach sporting equipment to your roofbars.

This manually erected roof tent is a more traditional style than others we have looked at. That said, it's still pretty simple to set up, and provides 360° views from front and side windows and skylights. You also have the option to add a thermally insulated interior. As well as regulating the temperature, it also blocks out light and sound.

If manually inflating a roof tent sounds too much like hard work, this is for you. The TRT120E can be set up at the flick of a switch – so, while you unpack the car (or relax with a cuppa), the remote control-operated motor does the donkey work.
