    Looking to buy a rooftop tent for my 2016 4runner, we are 2 people and be traveling for 3 months so looking for something comfortable and easy to use, don't want to be squeezed in to the rent as this will be our home for couple of months.

    Looking for something that is durable/good built/easy to use and best for the money

    What about these 2 from REI, good thing is that if not satisfied I can always return them.
    Tepui Tents Autana XL Sky 4 Tent
    Or
    Yakima SkyRise 3 Rooftop Tent

    Any recommendations?

    I would definitely lean towards the Tepui/ CVT Tents instead of the Yakima. From what I have heard the Yakima is made of a lighter weight tent material that is less durable.

    Installed Rago brackets and 4" cube ditch lights. Weather tech mats. Cargo net. Cargo mat. Ordered Gobi rack with ladder.
    Check out the one from ikamper. Very well engineered with a hard shell topper.

    Just got the yakima sky rise 2 person from REI. Super quick to open and close. But unfortunately as its their first go around the material is a bit cheap. Im trying to decide if I want to return and go with a brand thats bin around longer. The others are canvas material so I'm worried it will get hot and stale inside at night. I already run hot so that would be the death of me.

    I have the CVT Denali, it can get warm in there, but with a 12v fan it's not bad. Seems to cool off at night with the windows all open.

    wanna know some crazy shit? totally forgot about the new height after the tent was on my truck. Drove into a parking garage and cleaned the tent right off my rack!! I pride myself on my situational awareness but sometimes shit just happens. FML
