Campwerk roof tents: Camping “Made in Germany”, camping accessories, shop & showroom

Campwerk – Smell the mountain air, sit around the campfire and tell each other stories or go fishing with friends at large lakes – that’s camping. And if you’re preparing for a trip into nature, you naturally need the right equipment. Now you have to decide whether you prefer to stay in a tent, roof tent, campervan or motorhome. That’s why we’re introducing Campwerk to you today – the company for high-quality camping equipment from Germany. We already reported about the brand in our roof tent guide.

Made in Germany: Campwerk

In Germany, Campwerk is the market leader among the umbrella tent manufacturers. Not without reason, the quality speaks for itself. On my very private search for the best roof tent (for me), I have compared a total of 4 roof tent manufacturers with each other. My recommendation is quite clear, “Made in Germany” and thus Campwerk.

Most campers put their trust in Campwerk, so many in fact that the brand has now risen to become the market leader and Germany’s most popular roof tent manufacturer.

Campwerk itself is full of energy and spirit for roof tents and camping! Many roof tent fans already know Campwerk from YouTube, here they have been publishing videos for a very long time, informative as on the subject of setting up roof tents, product innovations, but also give insights behind the scenes, for example when they travel to tourism and camping fairs or also work on new products, e.g. camping accessories. There are even large roof tent meetings.

Pictures say more than 1000 words, take a look at the roof tents from Campwerk, Germany’s most popular manufacturer of roof tents and folding tent caravans:


Story: Concept of Campwerk

The concept of the company was always to travel the world with the greatest possible mobility and the least amount of time & money. The likeable young men from Bochum had a goal in mind and have thus built a successful company. They started with self-made small roof tents and now Campwerk sells everything from camping accessories to tent trailers. With every product that is sold, there is always a little spirit of adventure, a little spirit and a little anticipation over the counter.

Roof tents, tent trailers, transport trailers & vanlife

Relaxing by a large lake on a warm summer night and watching the stars – that’s a dream scenario. At Campwerk you will find everything you need for an unforgettable trip into nature. Every camper will find what they are looking for in this shop, because the range is large and the quality is guaranteed.

Advantages of roof tents

A road trip with the car, stop where you like and travel on whenever you want – this is what everyday life with a roof tent looks like. At Campwerk, the roof tents are divided into 4 categories: Adventure, Skycamp, X-Cover and Skycamp Mini. The Adventure roof tent is good for singles and couples and the Skycamp roof tent is suitable for families of up to 4 people. The Skycamp Mini is perfect for 2 people and the X-Cover is good for 4 people plus luggage.

These innovative roof tents can be set up in minutes and provide good protection from the cold and wet. Roof tents have many advantages, including that they insulate better, they can be mounted on any car and they protect better from Mother Nature than a normal roll-up tent.

Advantages of roof tents

  • Quick assembly
  • Protection from wet & cold
  • Good insulation
  • Can be mounted on almost any car
