The Sputnik

The Sputnik (Base Frame)

The Sputnik is our entry level lifting system. Our patented lifting technology allows you to lift the Sputnik, roof top tent, awning and other accessories off of the vehicle in less than 7 minutes.


The entry level Sputnik should only be used on flat and hard ground, it is not suitable for soft sand and uneven terrain. The lifting mechanism on the entry level Sputnik can be upgraded to the Electric Lifting Mechanism which is designed for uneven terrain and soft sand.


The roof top tent, awnings and other accessories can be utilised when the the Sputnik is on the vehicle or off the vehicle making it extremely versatile. 

The Sputnik legs have variable locking holes when in their stored position which adds additional storage space onto the roof of the vehicle. Items such as the Ground Tent can be stored on the Sputnik freeing up space inside the vehicle.

The entry level Sputnik is best suited to lighter roof top tents and awnings but is upgradable to the electric version should heavier items need to be added.
