5.0 Great Online Vendor, Great Product, Great Overall

This was the best purchase I've made in years. My overall experience with 4WP was awesome. This was a large item and I thought it would take some time to ship... It did not... it shipped quickly and it was delivered on time. The tent is amazing. It works better than expected. - Richard (Columbus Ohio)

5.0 We LOVE our RTT!!!

We purchased our Smittybilt Gen2 about a year ago and it has been a great purchase! There is plenty of space for two people. It has a light that is powered via USB that makes the tent very bright and the foam mattress is actually pretty comfortable. We live in Florida and we camped through a tornado warning, very very heavy rain and wind and water did not get inside and our tent held up very nicely. We plan to take this bad boy across the US on our honeymoon!

Q: What's the average setup/breakdown time for this tent? Answer this question

A: With the rain fly on, it takes me about 5-7 minutes to open, and about the same to close. With no rain fly, 3-5 minutes.

Answered by Rob L from Downingtown, Pennsylvania on 02/07/2022

A: At first it took me about 5 mins to set up and about 5 to take down. After about 3-4 times it was super simple and took me less then 3 mins on both set up and take down 

Answered by Brett from Colorado Springs, CO on 02/05/2022

A: Depends, but I think we average about 5 minutes set up and 5 for tear down, including tossing bedding up there for 2 people. It’s probably quicker if you don’t used the rainfly.

Answered by Look john from Toronto on 11/10/2022

A: I have not dealt with rainy nights yet, but this tent can develop condensation. Woke up in Sedona on a 15 degree morning and the tent produced very thin sheets of ice inside due to the condensation throughout the night.

Answered by ALEX from SAN DIEGO on 11/10/2021

A: - Please note: The roof top tent is not made for extreme conditions, and a fair use policy is required. Excessive rain, wind, snow, and other extreme conditions can affect and/or damage the tent.

Q: Where can I get replacement Tent Window Rods for the 2583 tent Answer this question

A: Glenn is wrong. He doesn't mention which "other tent" he has. If Amazon has them, they don't come up in a search for Smittybilt poles, rods, supports, windows, awnings, or rainfly. The only good advice is to call customer support. I found rods by calling my local 4WP where I bought the tent.

Answered by Roger from Raleigh, NC on 10/22/2021

A: I have 2 rooftop tents. Tge poles are the same. With that being said you can find poles on Amazon.

A: Just put it on top of your Pathfinder and strap down. I did. I have a 2010 Pathfinder. I was able to unpack and mount on same roof by myself, using a sawhorse for help.
