Fit Less Than Custom
April 20, 2014
Purchasing this "Jeep Tent" I was under the impression that it was custom designed to fit the odd angular shape of my JK tail gate. Not so. It's designed to fit a multitude of SUV's with extra optional straps and hooks to try to adapt to many difrent tailgated vehicles. There are hooks and straps that hang useless on my 2014 JK and a 4 inch wide gap on either side of the "sock" from where the bumper portrudes from the base of the side of the vehicle. Ive managed to engineer something with bungi cords and tieing lines through the spokes of my wheels but this was less than i expected.
Pros:Can be used as a stand alone tent without attaching to a vehicle. One person can set it up with practice. roomy. Handy small gear bags and light lanyard on inside of the tent.
Cons:Would hesitate to recommend this to a friend if the tailgate featuer is the reason for buying it especialy if the vehicle is a jeep wrangler.
