Disadvantage of a road trip with this equipment

The main disadvantage of the roof tent is that it increases the wind grip of the vehicle and impacts fuel consumption. Fortunately, there are deflectors that reduce consumption and noise ! On average, this overconsumption of fuel can amount to 0.5 to 1 L depending on the vehicle and the positioning of the tent.

Mais bonne nouvelle ! 🎉 Si vous êtes adepte de l’éco-conduite (on vous le conseille si non), votre véhicule pourrait même moins consommer avec cet équipement que sans !
