4.0 Good Tent

I have set this up three times now and it easy to do. Takes about 10 min. Nice sleep and pockets to put keys and stuff in. Good tent for the price.

2.0 Hmmm it’s cheaper for a reason I suppose

Just purchased, , set up and used over 1 weekend. Nice Tent but… Mounting method …The mount is only as strong as it’s weakest point. Adding bigger bolts at bottom of a piece of aluminum being held on by approx 2mm of a 4mm bolt’s nut, does not make the bracket stronger…there is not much holding that tent onto your roof.. Guess the competitive pricing has to come from somewhere, but should not be at the expense of a decent mounting system. Calling it a 2-3 person? Really? I know tent capacity #’s are usually off.Decent for 2 if you’re comfy in a double bed, in a room no wider than your bed.Personally think I should have spent the extra for the XL l Should there be enough room around the stitching of the roof peaks to fit a fat pen tip?Even if there is extra sealant, seemingly installed to prevent leaking? Otherwise, looks good, sets up easy, and folds back up.

All corners are similar
'First time opening
:maybe 2mm of meat on either side. 4 of these hold tent to that rail
5.0 Amazing Tent!!

This is the best rooftop tent! Very roomy! Easy set up! The mattress is great!

3.0 Great product for younger campers.

I believe this is a great product. The instructions were lacking in many ways.After installing it, we have decided it is not the product we want to continue with. We are both shorter in stature and reaching the zippers and tucking parts in to fold up has been a challenge. nothing to say that we both are in our mid 70's and it takes more physical ability than we either one have.

5.0 Best tent in its price range hands down.

This is my second tent from smittybilt. The first one I mounted on top of an off road tear drop. This one is on my jeep gladiator. I absolutely love it. Best tent in its price range hands down.

5.0 Great Tent!

I absolutely love the new color and ladder! Great tent!

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.

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.

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.
