going to tell you about it. It’s roll-on roll-off design is probably the first thing you’ll notice about it. It attaches to a roller
assembly fitted to the frame that allows the vehicle to
drive out from under the tent once its legs are securely on the ground. This allows the owner to
have free use of the vehicle, as well as use the tent in
a freestanding capacity. The unit is constructed from
aluminum and stainless steel. Each one has nine doors that
allow access to storage areas even when it’s mounted on the vehicle. Pricing depends on the model and options, and can be found by
contacting the manufacturer. Number 12. Although the name implies that it’s tiny, this one can still compete
with its larger competitors. It measures a little over 28
square feet and can be attached to any vehicle with a
rack system or roof bars. It opens up to a height
