Our new for 23′, Mika Grey 400 denier ripstop fabric, is extra sturdy with an Iridescence shade of copper to it. The ripstop pattern adds texture and depth to the fabric, while the coppery grey color gives it a sleek and modern feel that blends well with the outdoors.  The fabric has a satin finish that is both durable and extra water-resistant with the interior blackout coating, making it an excellent for all season use.
The Rhinotek® top cover is highly durable and designed to withstand even the harshest of outdoor conditions, from Colorado freeze to the melting Arizona sun. This heavy-duty PVC-coated polyester fabric, which is laminated with a rubberized coating that makes it 100% waterproof, won’t rip or tear – even with branches dragging across it. The dark charcoal color of the cover gives it a sleek and modern appearance, while the texture of the rubberized surface adds both style and functionality.

  1. Joe Young

    Finally, a light and DIY assemble roof top tent. I purchased the hi cap version and included a ladder. I have installed this RTT on my 2023 JLU Rubicon with 35 inch tires and using 4 rack bars from SMSParts Exposed Rack. Reason why I chose this tent is because of the Jeep’s limitation. The weight on the roof is very low.

    The DIY install. Was not too bad. I had a little hiccup with one bar which I was able to have the nut go in without issues thanks to support. If you know about 80/20 aluminum this will be fun for you. I highly recommend asking questions as Bad ass support is excellent.

    So far, I have used the tent 3 times and have been driving around for a few months now. Even with the light weight tent the jeep still fills top heavy but my mileage has not suffered. I am still getting about 17 to 18mpg.

    The only issue currently with the jeep is the ladder, I’m not too sure if bad ass will eventually add a longer attachment. If I use the current clip on location my ladder will be at a 45 degree angle which puts a lot of stress on the ladder and bends down hitting the gutter area of the jeep its still usable but I don’t recommend it. Another option is to use the Jeep gutter to hang the ladder which this is what my option was, but because the ladder hanger has metal it will scratch the gutter. Best to put some rubber protection on the hanger. I used some sticky cushion temporarily. I am still finding a solution so far thats how I get up onto the tent. I didn’t deduct the star here cause I feel its more of a Jeep problem.

    Open and Closing the Tent. It’s definitely easy to open and close the tent. I say 30 seconds to open and 1 min to close really. The hard part is to close it with pressing the rubber as my issue is my rack is somewhat in the way.

    Material, Padding and Zippers. If fully closed it still gets somewhat chilly on colder days. The material and it’s definitely blackout. The rubberize cover is great but I feel it could have been better made as some of the areas are not perfect. Hence this is why I deducted the star. The button in the rear doesn’t close up, but i feel this doesn’t need to be there. The front middle has a lot of slack. The bed padding. Its good enough for me but a lot of other users will probably want more padding. Zippers work great and needs a little getting use to when opening the mesh window vs opening it. Tip. Always keep the zipper low. Otherwise if your not tall enough its not easy to get to the top to pull down the zipper.

    Overall its a really good product and light tent. The pricing is slightly lower thanks to the savings of DIY.
