I have had an A.R.E. MX model with the walk-in door for 3 years. I wouldn't buy another. However, if you live in a dry region with no dust you should be OK.Very nice site. Still like the A.R.E. with door. I might go that route.
I always thought that it'd be sweet to re-do a FlipPac and instead of flipping it all the way out/flat, stop the deployment at an angle (acute angle at front of truck, large soft side at rear of truck), like my Autohome RTT(roof top tent) is, or like a reverse Westfalia Top;

This is definitely needed here in the rainy PacNW.
Of course this wouldn't net as much sleeping space as the FlipPac is designed for now, but it could work for 1-2people perhaps.
I proposed this to Martin at AT Trailer when I was recently down there but supposedly there is not that much calling for this setup.
All it would take is a few hydraulic shocks like in the RTT's and the FlipPac would stay at your set/desired angle.
