The Sputnik

The Sputnik

Our proven and patented detachable platform with its lifting technology allows you to lift the Sputnik, roof top tent, awning and other accessories off of the vehicle in less than 7 minutes whether it's to setup a campsite or store your camping equipment after a trip. The latest version can also remove the Roof Rack and Load Bars in a few minutes with only one operator. The legs on the latest version of the Sputnik can be mounted flush against the vehicle allowing the system to be stored in garages or narrow parking spots above your vehicles bonnet.

 

The Sputnik System has been designed for the serious over-lander and can be used on uneven terrain or in soft sand with minimal effort and works with most roof top tents.

 

The roof top tent, awning and other accessories can be utilized when the the Sputnik is on the vehicle or off the vehicle making our system extremely versatile.
