An awesome tent with no real compromise.
I received this tent today via truck freight, and it arrived in perfect shape on a pallet. Got it all set up on my Front Runner Slimline Rack.
First impression is that this thing is HUGE!!!! The quality is excellent for the price. It is very comfortable to lay in. You can spread out with two people and have plenty of room to spare. There are windows all around and plenty of ventilation if you need it. If not, everything closes up tight and it will stay nice and warm in the wind.
It comes with a really nice 12v cable that is perfect to plug into an outlet in your jeep. It has a USB adapter and comes with a set of LED lights for inside which are great. It comes with 2 bags for assorted doodads it comes with and a bag that hangs from it for your shoes so you dont bring dirt inside. Nice extras. The cover is nice and thick and attaches with super strong velcro. There is nothing that will get into the tent when it's closed up and covered. There is no way it's coming off while going down the highway, regardless of the winds. There are plenty of straps to secure it and it is very strong when opened. It will support 3 or 4 people if that was the aim.
The ladder is very sturdy and so is the attachment.
But like I said, it is HUGE so you will need a full length rack that is strong to support it. I think it weighs about 140-150 lbs by itself. I don't think this will fit on a 2 door. It's too big, and it will only open to the side, not the rear. It's too wide to open toward the rear. The mattress is nice inside, but I plan on adding something like a memory foam or dense mat underneath it. All of them only feel firm for a while so plan on upgrading that. No big deal.
I am extremely pleased with this and I challenge you to find a better deal for the same price...shipped for free to your door even. You'll pay more than twice the price.
The quality of this tent is no worse than even the much more expensive units, and they don't even include anything with them!
If you have a JKU and a good rack, I highly recommend this one.
