When open, the tent is safe to use in windspeeds up to 30-40 knots (= 55 – 75km/h).

It’s safe for road speeds up to 130 km/h. 

Through the added weight on top of the car the center of gravity moves upwards. This can impact how the car reacts to sudden changes of direction at high speeds. 

Short answer: Probably yes, but not extensive.

Long answer: This largely depends on your car model + tent model + how the tent is installed. 
Soft shell tents are more noisy than hard shells, tents sticking out over the windscreen are more noisy than when mounted further back. 
And of course your driving speed and any cross winds play a role.

We test drive all our installed tents and adjust the installation until we can provide you with the optimal solution for your setup.
