Like Don, I carry my RV-3 on the roof rack, it is a bit of a chore putting it in the OEM roof rack with that rear spreader bar.

I also carry the RV3 on the Front Runner roof rack and use rubber rope (bungie) to hold it down. Zipper down to keep it a bit dryer in transporting. I put my solar panel under it to keep them both available as the panel doesn't get used till the tent is down anyway.
We have property in the mountains and have not built on it yet but do go there often. I made a platform to set the tent on so we have a level flat spot to sleep, it has been working well. Really like the tent. Just got sides for it to have a more sheltered area.

So after a 12 years of use my RV4 is still going strong. One day I will actually have time to take pics for this thread. However I just got off the phone with Kim at Family Tent Camping and ordered a Jet Tent F25X with side panels and front panels. We also bought the floor saver and 4 side tapered panels for our foxwing. I am such a huge fan of this product line that when we decided to get a bigger tent for our month long trip with the family, we went right to the Oztent product line to see what the options were. Adding a tagalong was my first choice, but being from Fl and heading for bear country, the wife did not feel comfortable with our kids (6&8) in a seperate tent. Although the f25x is alot more complicated and heavy it has alot of great features on it which I hope will prove successful after a month of testing. We did look at roof top tents but decided we need the roof rack for gear since the 80 has a limited space for a family in the cab area and we like to take toys. I can't wait to do another full review after our trip!

Any other advice on Jet Tents? Considering the 25 vice 25X due to less complex and perfect for the two of us.

Had a F-30 that was 3mx3m and it was plenty big for myself and two teenage boys...so much room I wish we had the F-25 instead just because it was a beast of a tent to pack. Two people, I would definitely go the F-25 and just opt for side panels if more room is needed...that way you can scale it smaller or larger depending on the campsite.

Just got a call from the wife back home, my rv5 showed up Wed night. Cant wait to get home from this deployment and start using it. I will say this, the website I went through is very good towards military and I got it for a hell of a price. Hopefully it holds heat well I have a 15 day stay in November in Tennessee.
I’m thinking about getting one too. What was the website you used?

Be interested to hear where he got his. Got my RV3 from Bass Pro Shop. Not in store stock only on website. Free shipping, took a week.
