3.0 Improper alignment

We got the tent, put it on the car and found that It does not line up properly and it would not mount on the crossbars correctly, could only secure it on 3 points instead of 4. When we also closed it and put the cover on, one of the zippers was broken. We have been trying to get in touch with SmittyBilt or 4WP and have not been able to. Very frustrated with the customer service.

5.0 Great at this price point

Overall very nice quality tent, especially at this price point. Have experience with the gen 1 tent and there are some nice improvements that were made with this one. I'm very happy with the purchase and have used it a few times already with more to come.

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!

4.0 great tent

love the tent. easy to set up. super durable. i was on south padre island with 28mph winds with the rainfly on and didnt have a problem. no wind comes thru the sides of the tent or anything. only complaint is what all rooftop tents suffer from and thats the mattress is horribly uncomfortable. but a 3” foam mattress topper can fix that

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.
