If you're a roof top tent owner, I'm sure you've run into more than a few things that you wanted to improve.
My main complaint was that it felt so odd having this nice tent that cost me nearly $2k and I had to illuminate it with a flashlight or headlamp. Know what I mean?
So I installed...
We thought the same thing. This sink is the Seattle Sports version, and turns out it's a little small for plopping a kid right in it.
However! This method works okay: standing on the rubber floor mats (or what ever) and getting her wet. Yeah, we have a 12-volt pump for the water tank, but you...
I'm basically curious, but it's turned out to be a seriously fun topic to watch. Bathrooms, cold, wind, boredom in the passenger seat - those appear to be the main deal breakers, and they're understandable.
Ah, that's a good point. But dang, didn't you buy her a moto? At least she gave it a shot.
Oh! Good one. I doubt it's totally universal, but that's my experience too. My wife likes it when we sit down and make a plan together. I find it fun too, but I'm also down with heading out with just a...
I'd post a poll with prescribed answers, but I don't think that would do the trick for getting down to it.
So. If you have others in your life and they don't go on trips with you, why not? What are their reasons? Does it matter to you?
I almost cringe at the thought of how many possible opinions there are for roof top tents :)
One of the key benefits of roof tents in general - that is, not brand or style specific - is nailed right here:
A roof top tent is a bed.
And for that, they win points with the ladies . . .
Thanks Martyn; a no frills, direct-to-the-point answer :)
Right about the time you were typing that I was at the gear shop buying a can of Tectron Gear Water Repellent. The reviews on the web spike all over the place for both Nikwax and Tectron. For every 3 that love one, another 3 hate it...
Crazy, you have an A'Sage teepee? Old family friends were involved in that company. Small world.
Okay, the Nikwax and Kiwi stuff - I'm not opposed to reapplication once or twice a year, given that I like to have worry free tent time when it's dumping down.
Edit: Funny, the Camp Spray Kiwi...
I didn't think that this would be important, but maybe it is. I'm looking at my Hannibal roof tent that has a nylon fly of some type, and a large privacy room made of the same material I believe; replacing these is not in the cards. I have just a few sections of both that are...
Trevor, I enjoyed your post.
To toss in a contrary opinion, I would rely on spot metering in these situations.
The histogram is still a tool that you have to learn to know what you're looking at, mentally process it, and translate that into an action for what to do next. You're looking at a...
If you had an old tent rain fly that no longer shed water very well, what waterproofing product would you use?
REI has several: www.rei.com/category/4500607
So does West Marine: www.westmarine.com/vinyltreatments
I'm looking for some front line advice here. What have you used with success on...
