First time seeing this...very neat, think it'll attract the tent camper crowd especially.

I had a friend who wanted one. They look amazing, but are pretty spendy. Great products used on them, from the specs that I read. So you're getting your money's worth - just spendy.

Of course, there's always the chinese knock-off that's available...

i've seen them on different popup forums. haven't read posts from actual owners, yet.
they're more of a conversation item than something most would want to buy.
they are for a real specific type of outdoors person, usually they drive Suburus.

I do like the idea that you can have your ATV in it then remove it and have your sleeping area. I know many who like to get out inthe back country ATV riding but have to sleep most of the time in their cars or trucks.

I guess only time will tell if its a good deal at that price.

we have an old army surplus trailer, that we use for off roading, with a plywood top that folds out to make a base we pitch the tent on it and it works real good also when the wind storm comes and rips it up we just buy another cheap tent.

same concept less to go wrong three years down the road.

I think for the right people and right situation that it makes absolute sense. The friend that I spoke of is one of those people - it would be perfect for her and the kind of backwoods things that she enjoys.
