3.0 Not good in minor wind

Mattress very comfortable. Tent not very durable in windy conditions. Even a little. Rods that hold window coverings and rain fly bent easier than thought.

4.0 Take your home with you

Though this RTT is still new to me, I am so darn impressed with the overall quality. It deploys very quickly and easily. Once inside it is extremely spacious. Packing up takes a little more effort but not too bad, just can’t be in a hurry. I have this mounted on. Smittybilt rack on my 2 door JK. It will affect your fuel mileage so just be aware. Not to worry though as you won’t be wasting money on motel rooms.

5.0 Fantastic Value for an RTT

Update: I have completed a 4 month overland trip plus lots of weekend trips with this tent being my main habitat. Overall it has held up really well, showing the build quality and attention to detail. Im really impressed considering the price point. Major downside is the rain fly design. The way its setup, it will catch wind and direct it right in between the cover and tent. So any gusts greater than 20mph and the whole tent shakes and rattles which makes sleeping impossible. Decided to switch from my Big Agnes standard tent to an RTT when overlanding with hopes that setup would be easier and i could camp on rougher terrain comfortably. Installation: extremely easy, the versatile mounting options will bolt onto pretty much anything with a little bit of creativity. I have mine mounted on the Smittybilt Defender rack. It took about 2 hours by myself, with help it would be even faster. Setup and use: Setup is fairly simple, alone it takes about 10 minutes since you have to run back and forth pulling straps and velcro. Once everything is released its easy to pull on the ladder and flip the tent open. Then another 5 minutes to put in some of rods to vent. Its tricky to install the rain fly on tall vehicles, you can do it from the inside but it takes time and isn't fun when raining. Once setup the tent is surprisingly stable. I was a little concerned the hinge that folds the tent in half would have some flex and bother me but absolutely nothing. I installed an extra 2" foam padding (Queen size stuff fits well) and its pretty comfortable.

Q: whats the return policy on the tent? and is there someplace i can get this professionally installed? Answer this question

A: I'll let 4wheel answer the return. The professionally installed should not be required. Out of the box it will install on a roof rack system. Just need two people to lift and place. It is light enough for one person but awkward enough most likely to put a scratch on the vehicle. I was impressed how simple it was to install.

Answered by Makonis from BC, Canada on 01/05/2021

A: I know that 4wheelparts warrenty will cover broken zippers because that's what the man at the store told me. I was quoted about $250 for a professional installation by 4wheelparts. I decided to do it myself instead. As far as returns go, I'd imagine you can return it if its unused with no issues at your local 4wheelparts, but shipping returns may prove harder. A Semi dropped this off at my house.

Q: Can the tent be left on year round in the northeast ? Or should it be pulled off in the winter ?  Answer this question

A: It can be left on year round, however I would recommend you remove the RTT in the winter. The cover is a thick reinforced vinyl that may get brittle in extreme cold for long periods of time. The tent can easily be removed with help and this will ensure you years of enjoyment.

Answered by GoLawrence from Alaska on 11/24/2020

A: You can leave it on, just make sure to brush off any snow and not let it pile up on top of it.

Answered by Kelly from 4WP Corporate Headquarters on 11/24/2020

Q: Will this fit on a 2000 flareside ford ranger? Answer this question

A: This tent fits most vehicles, but would depend upon the rack you have and what the weight capacity is.
