MINI’s Now Making Rooftop Rail Tents So You Can Go Camping In Your Cooper

With little exception, the best cars for camping are those that offer a combination of generous interior storage, robust construction quality, and adept off-road capability. As such, a MINI (of all things) would seem like the last vehicle you’d want to bring when going off the grid.

Ever one to prove its doubters wrong, the British automaker has just announced a pair of rooftop tents to be used with its all-electric Cooper SE and plug-in hybrid Cooper SE Countryman ALL4 models. Attaching to the roof rails via a set of secure mounting clamps, each structure automatically deploys with just a quick flip of the safety catches and an extension of the ladder. Inside, it’s hardly what you’d call spacious, but there’s still plenty of room to comfortably sleep two. And besides, should things feel too cramped, you can always roll up the windows for a more open experience. According to MINI, the tent’s aerodynamic design means that it won’t affect either of the cars’ ranges, with the former offering 145 miles per charge and the latter some 37 miles without the engine.
