    the biggest benefit with the roof tents is that they look totally awesome when you're parking at safeway or some shit.

    I wonder which is worse for trip fuel economy. Tiny tent trailer, or roof top tent pushing air.
    You can get some pretty level rails that keep the Rtt setup almost level to your roof if you're tossing it over your box like I'd like to.

    Been looking, the free spirit recreation tents are super nice. Actually have even a tri layer setup that's good for year round camping.

    I suspect the people who are truly using these setups for actual camping are not the type of campers that have a need to go for an ice cream while out camping.
    Thats the point.. you still see them being used in front country all the time, which makes me laugh.

    The last time I saw a RTT, it was on a car with 100% bald tires. He wasn’t over landing anywhere, and really should think harder about where he is allocating his money.

    Honestly, is it any better buying a trailer like most people do and use only a few times a year? $2500-$3000 for a Rtt setup or $15,000-$25,000 for a trailer lol.

    I plan on buying a trailer, maybe even over this winter, but I also want to have the overland setup. @baygirl will never go with me in the roof top tent, but will in a trailer. The overland setup is for me, when I want to go out with my friends for a couple days or on a longer road trip and save on the hotel.

    In the end, everything is going to have pros and cons, and I think the overland setup is a perfect fit for me, while the trailer is good for a family excursion.
    If you find one that accommodates you plus 1 comfortably please let me know as right now, I can't find anything that isn't too tight and you're bigger than I am!

    I have a weird hate for these stupid tents lol...

    6.5' Box and a topper is the ticket. That how i used to overland (at music festivals). Just make your bed with a giant foamy, then roll it up and stuff all your shit in behind it Pull your stuff out and your bed just unrolls. "The Bears Den" is what it was called.

    There are lots of nice setups in the truck caps. Usually a platform bed with lots of storage underneath it.

    I would consider one of those for a simple setup if it was just me going out. IMO, these are better then a RTT.

    Why all the hate? C'mon guys, lets keep it on topic, and let those that enjoy the idea to do so.
    Nobody's hating, real overlanding is awesome. We're poking fun that an activity that has its roots in the Aussie outback (where it was literally the only way to get from place to place) has become an Instagram fad where folks strap an RTT on their stock Impreza and declare themselves overlanders. It's become the Crossfit of offroading. 90% of today's "overlanders" are really just campers with expensive tents.

    @JRSCOOLUDE I will let you know what I find. I did find a couple that said they were 4 person RTTs, but I haven't actually gone to check any out in person yet. I am still trying to source an appropriately rated bed rack to support the weight of the tent, sleeping supplies, and people inside. One that I did find is RCI, looks really easy to assemble, and has an 1100LB static weight limit and 225LB limit when actually overlanding. I think they were originally made for Tacos, but they have a setup that fits my F150 too, and keeps the tent mostly below the roof line.

    https://www.stage3motorsports.com/F1...-Bed-Rack.html

    A few of the tents I want to check out:

    https://www.ikamper.com/pages/skycamp
    http://www.smittybiltdepot.com/Outdo...t_pn=S%2fB2883

    Price points are all over, but I want to compare what they are, materials used, and setup and take down functionality.

    Legitimately awesome.

    If you put one of these on a topper, you could have back country condos.. maybe put it on air bnb.

    +1000 for this. Better than a RTT in every way, only exceptions being ability to sit up straight and trendiness.

    "Overlanding" is the hipster/instagram term for boondocking.

    That's camping in general.

    Most of my friends are scrambling around to book "camp grounds" for summer weekends. This appears to be a place where they tow some trailer or pop up (or, egads! a tent!) to something that resembles a trailer park with some trees. They then call this "camping".
