    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?

    The Yakima looks promising but I don't have enough information to suggest it might be durable at this point. It's made of nylon, which is good for summers, but some people have complained about leaking.

    The Tepui, on the other hand, is a hardy and well respected brand. It's heavier duty, and if the difference is cost isn't a problem for you, the obvious choice.

    Installed Rago brackets and 4" cube ditch lights. Weather tech mats. Cargo net. Cargo mat. Ordered Gobi rack with ladder.

    I agree with you. Have not seen a better built/engineered tent. Looks like a great company too.

    My family uses a Tepui. We've only had it since March 2017, but we've had it out on 4 different camp trips already and so far it's held up well. It had gotten cold over night on our March trip, but the tent stayed very well inside. Too warm, kind of. We have condensation running all along the inner walls... we didn't open enough vents. It was our first time using it.

    Next two trips it had rained over night, and everyone in the main sleeper was comfortable and our dogs in the annex remained dry and secure.
    The price was the price, but the quality so far seems worth it.

    As we have the 4 man Autana Ruggedized XL atm, we plan on adding a 2 man onto the 4Runner for when we take off without the kids.
