I wanted to have a tent that I could leave in the car and when deciding to camp overnight, it would be there for me. I haven't used it yet, but I like the design and features and hopefully it will provide me many nights of comfort. I plan to sleep in the back of the Suburu and use the tent as an vestibule for changing clothes, and keeping my things dry in the event of rain.

Very nice tent, well made. Easy connect to Honda Fit.Only needed 3 straps to secure to the car. 1/rear wheel, 1 to the wipers. Pleasantly surprised that it's less than 5 min to disconnect if you need to go for a spin. Set up 30 min. Wanted option to sleep in the Fit in rain. Great to have storage in car and keep tent fairly clear.I would highly recommend. Fold Tent into 1/4 lengths then roll up tight. Let exhaust cool before connecting. TO MFG: Awning poles should have been aluminum

This tent is very easy to put up - even for one person. It's roomy, and the two zippered doors and awnings on the rain fly offer lots of options for site selection. This is the perfect tent for my camping plans.

It is a well-made tent that can be attached to a station wagon (Subaru-Outback in my case). It a a bit heavy for a tent of its size. It takes getting used to to set it up especially if it is going to be attached to car. So I recommend to practice it before going camping with it.

The Napier Dome to go tent is great, easy to set up and take down and very comfortable. Leaky where the hatchback touches though and needs waterproofing spray. No problem getting it into the bag provided either.

I love the concept. I have now used it twice. The tent expands the use of my Subaru Outback which is great. Like the tent, BUT, as a single woman I have found it a bit difficult to put up on my own. I thought it would be a little easier to put up. The short eaves pole is very difficult to squeeze into the double stitched pocket after one end is in. It takes a struggle - maneuvering and strength. There just has to be an easier method to get this done. I am also a bit concerned about the strength of these two double-stitched pockets as the stitching seems stretched and too taut when the pole is in position. Time will tell. Great tent ventilation.

My "Dome to Go Tent" had it's first tryout this past weekend on the back of a Honda FIT. It went up in about 20 minutes the first time. I think the next time will be even easier now that I've tweaked the process. The large windows and screen door came in handy in the 95 degree Georgia heat. A couple of fans and my dog and I were quite comfortable. I didn't sleep in the back of the car as planned because the dog couldn't find enough room to lay down (he's used to a queen size bed). We slept in the tent instead. The only suggestion I would have would be to add a power port hookup like I've seen on some tents and maybe a flap to install a small air conditioner (Southerners would appreciate this especially!)

How well does the tent seal to the vehicle? I have a Ford Focus Electric and ideally at a powered campsite while the vehicle is plugged in charging I am thinking I could run the HVAC, it would be nice to air condition or heat the tent with the vehicle while I sleep. If the tent seals well and is well made it will work much better.

Hi, I would be more concerned with the breath-ability of the tent material. That HVAC is going to work awful hard and barely heat/cool the tent.flag Accept Answer

This sounds great, but I am concerned about setting it up and tearing it down with my limited height--4'11."
