Just bought a Subaru Outback and this was the first accessory we purchase for our camping adventures. Very pleased with the product and easy assembly. Camping and canoeing here we come.

Loved the tent but on my first trip it rained for an hour and I had water come in all four corners of the floor in the main tent. And came in around the hatch! I don't know how, but it did. I then the corners pulled and possibly ripped when we staked it in. We were very careful but for a $330 tent you would think it would have been a little sturdier! I tried to be nice and ask them to exchange it but NOPE! They are sending me seam sealer instead. Note a happy camper!!!

I like the tent. Good quality, price is decent, but directions aren't great. Took too long to figure out how to set it up from the directions. Otherwise recommend it highly.

Thought this was a great compromise between a tent and camper utilizing the back of my Wrangler Unlimited for additional sleep space. Upon using for first time on Memorial Day weekend, having the spare tire/tailgate take up valuable space inside the main tent was annoying. Pain to get around as it's right in front of the door between the sunroom and main tent. Upon using for the second time, one of the fiberglass poles split and one of pole connectors snapped at the weld.

Beautiful, easy to set up, roomy, practical (even has a hook in each room for a lantern), and take down was a breeze. I highly recommend this tent. Even though the SUV has swing doors rather than a hatch the tent fit well.

My wife and I are getting back into camping. We have a 08 Tacoma and the tent is Great. Put it up first in the backyard with no problem. Getting ready to hit the trail, do some fishing, and some much needed R&R. This is a great deal!!!!!

Pretty, decent tent. About as easy to set up as any other large tent in the woods, and in the rain and mud. Night #1, ok, no rain. Night #2, pouring rain exposed every leak this thing had to offer; last time I ever fall for the advertisement, "no seem sealer required." Naturally, once we put a tarp over it, it didn't rain again the rest of the week. I still like the concept behind this tent, but getting the seal right around the SUV is never going to be perfect, due to each vehicle's differences, especially where the taillights are located. Btw, this tent may not work right with a side-opening door, like the rav-4. I used it on a Ford Expedition; tough fit around the tent opening, but doable. I was originally concerned with how I'd be able to have the hatch open, but with the interior light off - I just had to turn the dimmer for the dash display light, all the way down it turns off; no problem. Beware, once you drive away, it can be difficult to re-attach the tent again. All things considered, it's a pretty nice tent for the money, but you must follow the directions carefully (and bring something to step up on to reach the high spots outside - I'm 6'2", and had a tough time with the final stages of setup!)

I've only used the tent once so far but I'll give you my pros and cons and you can decide for yourself: Pros: It is roomy and it does work as a stand alone tent. I haven't had an opportunity to use it attached to my Xterra. Cons: The instructions are poorly put together and written. The tent stakes were useless. It was very difficult to put up in the wind even with 2 people trying to set it, Initially I'm disappointed with the purchase but am hoping that the more I use the tent I'll change my mind.

My Tahoe has barn doors instead of the tailgate. Will Part Number - 110910 work ok? I have 4 GSDs that will be camping with me. Anyone have any experience with these tents and large dogs?

Will this tent work with conversion vans that have back doors that open left and right instead of a big door that lifts up?
Answered by Elizabeth C. — Jun 08, 2012 10:47 AM
Hello. The Campright SUV tent is made for vehicles with a vertical opening rear door. However, if your doors open left to right, and the space between is less than 8 feet wide, this tent could work for your van. This tent measures 9’L x 8’W, so if your van fits in those measurements you should not have an issue. This is a universal tent made from heavy-duty rip resistant nylon.flag Accept Answer

The SUV in the pic has a van rear lift door which goes toward the ceiling of the tent. How does this tent work for side opening rear doors? Will the ceiling need extra support and is there enough room for the side door to be open?

I'll be taking my pit-bull with me on a "bucket-list" adventure from Northern California through South America, or as far as I can go. Will Fido's nails puncture the floor of the tent? Do you anticipate any other problems regarding a dog? - Article_86

How long does this take to set up and take down, and is it completely waterproof, are the screens in the tent always open to see inside, or is there privacy? How Heavy?

The tent takes about 15 minutes to set up or take down. I recommend doing a dry run at home before leaving for your trip. Last time we set up a demo model I actually had heels on! The tent is made of water resistent fabric and has sealed seams. The screens are made of no see-um mesh and have storm covers so you will have privacy.

Did anyone camp in the rain? Did the inside of your tent get wet at all? I can't see any flys or other window/door covers and I'm wondering how you keep the elements out. thanks, sweetea

I have had this tent for 2 seasons now. It should come with a fly as it leaks in many places if it rains for more than a few hours...flag Accept Answer

The SUV tent does not have a rainfly. It does have an awning over the doors to the tent. On the windows the fabric overlaps the zipper to prevent water to enter. The only instance that we have had of someone reporting the inside getting wet was when the rope tie downs were not used to pull the tent top taught. Answered by Rightline Gearflag Accept Answer
