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.

5.0 Comfortable

I admittedly added some foam but its like having a full size bed wherever you go. It does take 15 minutes to setup and put away but if you can park there you can camp and i sleep like im at home in it.

5.0 Perfect Overland Tent Topper

Perfect Overland Tent Topper for your Honda Pioneer. Craftsmanship was well thought out and heavy duty material. All hardware came with to mount on your ride. The added weight didn't affect the ride in off cantering positions nor can tell its up there. Do have to keep a mindful of low hanging branches since it adds 14 inches to the height of the ride. Comes with a 1-1\2" bed pad we added another 1-1/2" with it and its very comfortable. The telescoping ladder was a super upgrade from the original design and makes the entire tent platform very stable. Only draw back is the tent will sweat and in the morning you will beed to open all the windows and dry it out which doesn't take very long . First trip out was a 3 day trail ride and having this made is so much better than having to drive all the way back to camp or crawl into the back of a small suv. It opens up so many new possibilities with camping spots then ever before. Were very happy with the purchase. Good job smittybilt.

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: 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

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.

Q: I have a 2012 Kia Sportage EX and would like to know if this would fit on my vehicle. Answer this question

A: It will fit on your vehicle with the right roof rack or bars. I would suggest starting with looking into Thule cross bars. I personally went with a flat platform rack that attached to my factory rails.
