5.0 Awesome! Easy set up and comfortable

Installed on 2012 FJ with Baja Rack. Southeast Overland did install and good job. Tent is amazing, very comfortable sleeping with two adults and Jack Russell Terrier. First nigh was 32F in Asheville NC and very comfortable, even up/down ladder for bathroom stops. Very snug and secure, easy to pop up/down. Heavy cover and rack make no wind noise on rack versus un-usable FJ OE rack. Putting back down takes one person about 10 minutes total. Foam mattress is incredibly comfortable, best night sleeping, no movement when rolling around, very stable. Second time left open moon roofs with screens, really awesome. High and dry, no cold, bumpy ground or messing around with stakes. Be the envy of every campsite! Next stop: Outer Banks and no people!

5.0 3 years and 100 nights

I've owned this tent for just under 3 years and have slept in it just under 100 nights. Not only that, but I've move camp almost everyday when I'm out overlanding. That's the real test. Folding it up - setting it up. That's where wear and tear comes in. It's held up great. No issues. Keep it clean, spray some waterproofing on it once a year and don't abuse it and it'll last many years! To answer the obvious question... If I spend that many nights out why not a hardshell that sets up much faster? Because all hardshells are about 83 inches long. This tent is 95 inches long. If you're tall (I'm 6'10") you'll kick the door out of the little hardshell in your sleep.

5.0 Great tent!

Tent works great, much easier to set up than originally thought it would be. Looks to be very well built. Definitely a two person job to get the tent on the roof but that was the most difficult part. I suggest also packing a small ladder or a step stool which makes set up/tear down at the camp site much easier. Would buy again and recommend.

5.0 First of Many Camping Trips

Wanted this tent for awhile. Installation was a breeze and it sets up in a couple of minutes. It makes my Jeep a little top heavy, but I drove it (and ferried it) all the way to Orcas Island for a camping trip and it was great. The airflow was amazing - on warm nights it was cool and on cool mornings it was warm. And the pad was good enough that all I needed was my sleeping bag. Going to get a lot of use outta this tent.

5.0 Roof tent.

I put this on a 2022 Bronco Sport with the Thule cross bars. The whole thing fits perfectly and is easy to set up. I’m pretty heavy, and had no issues climbing up the ladder and setting up the tent from the inside.

5.0 Great tent

I got a 1st Gen Rtt by smittybilt as a starter. My girlfriend and I wanted to start camping and start making new memories. We both work a lot, so our schedules don’t always allow us free time. This tent was inexpensive and very easy to put together. We absolutely love this tent. It’s extremely comfortable and very spacious inside. It’s held up very well after 3 trips. Im not sure how it’ll handle in extreme weather, but it handles just fine in Southern California. I’ve only used it for summer trips, but I do have fall/winter trips planned and I don’t doubt it’ll keep us safe and dry.

Answered by Dave from 4WP HQ on 07/28/2022

Q: Do I need a special rack to put this on my 2018 4 Runner? Is the stock rack that came on it enough? Answer this question

A: The stock roof rails on the 4runner are rated to 125lbs while driving. This tent is heavier than that so you'll need to upgrade your roof rack system. Most aftermarket racks will support 300lbs driving and 760lbs static

Answered by Bob13 from Ky,ky on 09/08/2022

A: I have a 2018 Subaru Crosstrek and have the factory roof rails. I use thule square bars and mount the tent to that just based on the orientation of the bars on the bottom of the tent.

Q: Can this be mounted on an installed roof rack on a tacoma? I want to keep it off the bed since i dont have a cage and wanted to know if the roof of a double cab could fit and support this tent? Answer this question

A: I had mine up there for about 6 months and it worked great. I have a cage I could sell you from Tuffstuff I’m not using anymore.

A: The Smittybilt Overlander Roof Top Tent - S/B2783 is Approx. 54" W x 56" L

Answered by Dave from 4WP HQ on 01/13/2022

Q: Would this be too heavy for a 2017 Jeep Patriot? I’ve already bought the tent but I’m worried about weight limit or it fitting on top of the car?  Answer this question

A: The tent is "light", I can move it by myself, it is just awkward being large. Tent can hold over 600lbs. So this all depends on what your roof rack system can hold and the Patriot can hold.
