Technically you can fit just about any tent on any car. All of our tents attach to the roof via standard crossbars (or platform racks). So, as long as your car, trailer, RV, or boat has a set of crossbars, our tents will mount to them!
That being said, some tents fit better on some vehicles than others. If you have a small crossover, wagon, or sedan, you may want to stick to our non-XL tents since you may find that the XL versions will overhang the sides of your vehicle too much. Larger cars, vans, and SUVs do great with the XL range of tents.
At the end of the day, the decision comes down to your personal preferences and vehicle size. There’s no substitute for breaking out the old tape measure and seeing where the tent measurements would land on your specific vehicle.

Some specific recommendations based on our expertise:
Subaru Outbacks on the stock rack- Condor and Falcon
Mini Coopers, Prius’, and other small sedans or tiny wagons- Condor
4 Runners- Most like the fit of the standard Falcon
Jeep Wranglers- Any of our non-XL tents for 4-doors. Condor for 2-doors
Trucks- Condor for mounting over the bed with a bed rack. Any tent for mounting over the bed on a topper or with a ladder rack.
