The platform weighs 48 lbs / 22 Kgs. It is not difficult for one person to lift the platform to the vehicle roof before a trip, or to remove it for storage after a trip.   We designed the Rev Tent system to be modular so you, solo,  can remove the Rev Tent off the roof one piece at a time.  This is the only Roof Top Tent with this feature.  

** We recommend storing the Rev Platform in your garage when not in use. You can keep it on your vehicle, but you'll extend the life of the product by storing it out of the elements.
