Product Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like it a lot. I’ve spent 10 nights in it so far and am pretty happy. Wind and rain aren’t much of a problem. It gets quicker every time I set it up - 8 minutes start to finish is the quickest so far. 12 minutes to pack it back up. I leave my bag and pillows in it which is nice. Downsides - the mattress is awful. I’m going to try a mattress topper for it because there isn’t much give to this thing. It’s rock hard. Maybe it will break in? Fingers crossed. The only other downside is waiting for it to dry. I’ve been closing it wet because in the woods where I camped there isn’t much sun. So I drove to the beach and popped it open to dry. Not a huge deal - everything gets wet where I camp in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula (along Lake Michigan). Oh, get a brush to get the sand off the ladder before you fold it up.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Decent but there are better options for price Purchased a month ago. It is easy to install and Made with quality materials. Easy to setup and seems solid with good fitting cover. After using on a long trip, the mat is not comfortable at all. Very hard on the back and side. The tent does not do well in winds. It was a consistent 10 mph wind and it was terrible. I had a competitors tent that was much better and a lot more comfortable. If I could get my money back I would.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality Construction - Takes Forever to Set up The Good: - excellent insulation qualities (especially when the extra rain fly is on) - comfortable/quality design - plenty of windows/openings (fully functional bug netting) - space is good -- comfortable fit 2 people + gear or squeeze three adults - bedding is comfortable and the tent/floor is easy to clean out The Bad: - takes absolutely forever to set up (I've set up my tent maybe 15 times and have the set-up/take-down to ~20 minutes from start to finish) - difficult to set up the window awning unless you physically get out on the roof of the car (at least in my experience with the FJ roof) - pretty heavy/large RTT (roof top tent), even when packed up -- creates a significant amount of drag but no wind-whistle to my knowledge Closing thoughts: Overall this is a well-built RTT that I think is perfect for Spring-Fall camping. I've used it in the desert, alpine, forests, and beach -- have been comfortable through rain storms, light hail, and strong winds (30mph+). There are plenty of features that allow for the regulation of temperature (e.g. windows + awning zippers). If you want to be able to quickly arrive at campsite, set up your shelter and perhaps plan to leave in the morning -- this may not be the RTT for you... there are more mobile/simple setup options available. Other than that, no complaints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tepui as Prairie Schooner [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought the ruggedized Tepui Kukenam in June 2020. I ran it on top of my Toyota FJ for almost a year and spent about 15 nights in it, from Summer heat on the beaches of VA and Delaware to a chilly Fall trip in NorthernNew Hampshire and VT. I will offer that for maximum comfort temperature-wise, you must master the use of the "skylight" windows for ventilation! Also, I installed a layer of Reflec-tex insulation under the vapor barrier (under the mattress) this helps tremendously in keeping body heat in - without it you lose a lot of heat to airflow under the tent. And, at the beach, don't deploy until the sun goes down, you will be setting yourself up for a hot evening. We have traveled with two adults and one child and been comfortable in the cooler climes - at the beach it was a bit too close and sticky for 3. Set up and tear down has become easier with each use and we've now got it down to about a 15 minute deploy time w/two hands. I have single handed deploying and stowing it and it is do-able, you have to be efficient and mindful of your process or it will be a tedious task up and down. In August '21, my XVenture XV2 arrived and we transferred the tent to it. My son and I traveled to Montana and back to VA two weeks ago, camping in a variety of conditions on both legs of the trip, including 18 degrees and heavy frost in IN and high winds in SD. The rain fly kept the frost off the canvas and it dried out quickly, thus we were able to stow the tent sooner and be on our way. On the rim of the Badlands (pictured) we experienced about an hour of 30mph+ gusts in the middle of the night. We were awakened by the noise and the trailer's movement, but never felt like we couldn't ride it out. So far, so good. There are many options in the market for RTTs and I looked at many before purchasing this one and it serves our needs very well and I happily recommend it to those who ask. Criticisms that I do have are that the pockets inside are too small and too close to the mattress; there is no central overhead D-ring/hanger for a lamp and no rings to attach a clothesline inside. We are working on those points.
