Wanaka 55" Roof Top Tent - 3 Person Capacity - XL Annex, Anti-Condensation Mat, 2 Boot Bags, & LED Lights Included - by Guana Equipment


The Wanaka 55" is our first rooftop tent model, and we have to say we're extremely proud of it.

After having lived for a few months in another 3 person softshell, owned other brands and types, we knew pretty well the pros and cons of most RTTs.

That's why when we decided to make our own, we wanted something better equipped, better built, and better prepared for a true camping adventure. 

We wanted a camping setup.

That's how the concept of the Wanaka came into mind.

And now, we came with a newer and improve design!

A comfortable 3 person roof top tent that comes with all the bells and whistles, with add-on accessories that normally cost a fortune but we already put them in for your own benefit:

  • Anti-Condensation Mat
  • 3" Thick High Density Foam Mattress
  • 2 Boot or Shoe Bags
  • LED Light Strip
  • Extra Large Annex With Removable Floor
  • 1 Utility Net under the bed base 
  • YKK Zippers for the tent and the annex
  • Sky View Window 
  • Entrance Window
  • Special skylight in the overhang of the tent, giving you light and vision for 270 degrees when inside the annex
  • Black diamond plate aluminum base for less scratching and better insulation
  • Silver coating inside the rainfly for better insulation as well as better shade. You will see less light inside the tent!

All of these are a huge game changer for those who use their car top tent regularly.

The anti-condensation mat will save you from ruining your mattress. The 3 inches of thickness are necessary to have a comfortable sleep. The shoe bags will allow you to safely and easily store your shoes, sandals or boots out of the tent.

The LED light strip can be either added under the tent to illuminate the annex, or inside the RTT's inner frame for better visibility at night.

We finally come down to our special annex. Normally, annexes are around 65" wide by 75" long. Ours is 100" wide by 100" long and 75" tall.

Why a bigger annex?

Simple, we've found that both men and women find it incredibly useful to have the annex as a private changing room.

However, other annexes are a bit small, sigh, narrow, whilst ours is big enough for two of you to change at the same time, or one of you to do it in complete comfort. There's even enough space to hang your clothes.

The removable floor is a must, it helps to avoid getting your feet wet in the mornings after a colder night, it also keeps luggage, bags or equipment dry.

extra large annex with three awning doors

The best of it all, is that we've found that even two children can sleep inside of it in case you want your whole family or a bigger group in your outdoors adventure. Or why not your pets!

This annex has an entrance or door, with also see-through-mesh that opens up inside towards your car, so you can easily access it!

Finally, this annex has a skylight on the tent's overhang.  The new edition from 2020, has a 270 degree window, for even more light and better visibility! That's ideal for light to come in without you having to open the annex doors. 

If you do want to open them, guess what? There's 3 of them for maximum ventilation, all covered by a see-through-mesh and the doors themselves (made of 600D polyester oxford waterproof material) turn into 3 awnings with the poles already included.

We found that if we like a camping spot, we stay for a few days and just hike or walk around. At that point we set up, and that's where the awnings become useful.

You can use one to cover the main entrance, and the other two to offer shade or coverage, place a chair beneath them and calmly read a book.

Other features of our Wanaka roof top tent include an aluminum diamond plate base with anti-scratch protection. We included a sliding aluminum ladder which is 82.5" long.

The canvas body of the car top tent is made of 600D waterproof ripstop polyester oxford canvas with taped seams and PU coating, making it a 4-season roof top tent.

The annex material is also 600D waterproof polyester oxford canvas, with taped seams and PU coating, and the rainfly too. The travel cover is black, made ofHeavy Duty 680g/1200D PVC, 100% waterproof.

Now, the rainfly also includes a special silver coating under it, which has better insulation for winter, and most importantly, allows less light into the tent for a better night's sleep!

Our Wanaka comes with YKK zippers (the highest quality in the market) for both the RTT, the annex and removable floor. 

The truck tent's internal frame is made with extra strong 1" thick aluminum poles, we used allow brackets, 304 Stainless Steel Hardware Bolts and edge protectors for the tent's base to avoid it tearing the canvas.

The base of the tent is made of diamond plate aluminum, the toughest in the market, which protects it from dents or piercings. It now comes in black, so less scratches and better insulation!

We have a Flat Rate Shipping of $225 including Lift Gate to all Lower 48.

    A great RTT!

    This tent for the money cannot be beat. It comes with a very large annex, 2 shoe bags and a light strip for cheaper than most name brand RTT's. The workmanship on the tent is stellar and after setting it up all seams on the main body are seam sealed very well. No problem fitting three people in the tent. Could sleep three children or one adult in the annex as well. Only problem I had was with some of the hardware provided. Ended up having to cut the four small bolts that attach the tracks to the tent. As it was they were too long and would not allow the bed rack hardware to slide through the grooves. Bed rack hardware was too short to attach to my KB Voodoo bed rack and I had to purchase 8 longer 8mm bolts in order for it to attach to my bedrack. Contacted Manfred at Guana about the issue and he advised he would pass the info on to RD. Have not had a chance to test it out in the rain yet but have no doubts it will handle it with ease. Instructions were very basic and could be more detailed but I am very pleased with my purchase and would recommend this tent to anyone over any of the more expensive "name brand" RTT's. For reference this tent fits perfect on my KB voodoo bedrack which is on a 2019 Chev ZR2 Bison.

    After 7 months of continuous use...

    *This is a 7 month updated review.

    As a BLM Park ranger, I literally lived in my trailer-mounted Guana 55' RTT and annex, in some remote mountainous locations throughout Western Colorado this year. The frame and materials successfully stood up to some harsh weather conditions and my daily use and abuse. The annex provided enough living space to cook food and move around even with a folding table, some stacked plastic totes, and a camping chair inside (I would recommend the larger 64" or 72" for more than 2 people). With the internal insulation layer and a small propane heater, I stayed warm when the temps dropped into the 20s. The annex funneled the heat upwards into the RTT and the insulation did a great job of keeping the warmth inside the tent. After 7 months of DAILY use and abuse, the only issues I encountered were with a couple of annex zippers for entry and exit (because I used them like you'd use the door into your house). BUT, the guys and gals at Off Road Tents remedied that. Their customer service has been EXCELLENT - better than that of some of the larger RTT/off road product companies I've dealt with in the past. Thank you!
    I highly recommend The Guana RTT, and overall doing business with Off Road Tents!

    After 4 months of continuous use....

    This is a very smart designed, well constructed product! After traveling/camping/daily use in the Wanaka 55" and annex, working as a park ranger in rural Colorado, I can say that my RTT has been thoroughly tested by the environment. It has stood up to 40 mph winds, extreme downpours, 100+ temperatures, and lots of bugs (freezing temps and snow to come...). I initially tested it for 3 weeks in Baja, and it did great with the strong Pacific winds, morning condensation, and occasional dust storms. The frame and material are both durable, the annex is roomy, and the "loft" for sleeping has been comfortable with lots of ventilation. Additionally, the customer service and support have exceeded my expectations. Excellent product and overall small business - I highly recommend!

    Amazing. From the quality of the tent to the customer service. I would highly recommend!

    My first RTT and I love it!

    The Wanaka set up quite easily. It was shipped to me via UPS and came rather quickly and in excellent condition. You definitely need two people to do the entire assembly and instal but it was rather easy to do. (4) saw horses and some 13mm or 1/2” sockets and ratcheting wrenches make quick work of it. Mine is installed on a Yakima rack system atop my 2017 Nissan Titan and LEER canopy.

    Extra Large Annex Room

    Our Annex Room is larger than your average annex. Normally, annexes are 65" wide by 75" long.

    At Guana we designed an Annex Room that's 100" wide by 100" long and 75" tall.

    Our annex is big enough to comfortably sleep a very tall adult, or simply to use a storage room for bags and gear, or as a private changing room.

    It also comes with an LED Light to illuminate it at night, a Skylight for daylight to come in, YKK zippers, 2 shoe bags and a removable floor.

    To top it all up, our annex has 3 entrance doors. All of them can be opened up, and extended to become 3 separate awnings.

    You can end up having an enormous area of shade, shelter and coverage. A complete camping setup thanks to just our tent!

    Made With Premium Quality Materials

    Each and every single Guana Equipment Roof Top Tent is made from premium quality materials.
