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.
