iKamper is synonymous with high-quality and outstanding fit and finish, and their newest hardshell tent is no different.
This is the BDV clamshell-style tent from iKamper. The BDV is an acronym for Blue Dot Voyager, and is so named because we are all explorers (Voyager) on Earth (Blue Dot).
The BDV is iKamper's most multifunctional RTT. Ready to load with all the gear you require without cutting corners. Configure the ladder on the driver’s side, passenger side, or rear of the tent, whichever is best for your vehicle. The simple ladder and wedge design make it easy to move your vehicle without packing up camp.
The BDV comes preassembled as usual, or in an unassembled version if you're the DIY sort and like a project while saving some money!
iKamper BDV Rooftop Tent Walkaround
At just 7 inches, the BDV is half as thick as other roof top tents. This keeps any impact on your vehicle efficiency and vertical clearance to a minimum.
Instantaneous Set Up
Our fastest tent to deploy. Lift the latch and the BDV will practically pitch itself. All you need to do is set up the ladder, and enjoy.
Accessory rails along the edge offer room to mount essentials like traction boards and axes, while solar panels, storage boxes, and other gear can be mounted on top.
Accessories (coming soon)
A full line of compatible accessories has been designed to ensure you never need to hack the system to make it work for you. Solar panels, storage boxes, axes, and more to come in 2023.
Like every iKamper tent, the BDV has undergone comprehensive testing to withstand real-world conditions, in all weather you may encounter. From wind and water resistance to road testing and repeatability.

This my second hardshell tent, and it’s my favorite.
iKamper did a great job designing this clam shell tent. Plenty of mounting options on the top for things like solar panels and other gear. Lots of options for mounting along the perimeter as well, and I love how the ladder securely attaches.
I like how they carried over the quick open “blinds” feature from the Skycamp 3.0 for the rear window.
It sets up and puts away fast, which is something I always look for in a tent.
This is a solid tent from iKamper and looks great. Very happy with it!
