Howling moon rooftop tents

Anyone on the forum own a Howling Moon rooftop tent? I was considering buying one but wanted more input before dropping that kind of money on something unseen. The web sites are all geared toward cell so the sites are pretty basic without much info.

As far as I can tell, they both have an annex.

That looks pretty much identical to my ARB Simpson II RTT (except I don't have the annex). Probably made at the same factory. I really dig my tent, but after checking out Kurt's Simpson III, I would go that route. Big improvements in the vestibule/rainfly configuration. My biggest gripe about mine (which is the same as that Howling Moon) is that the rainfly collects copious amounts of water when raining. There's just no way to tension it enough. The Simpson III has a much improved rainfly and doesn't require the annex or guy-lines to tension the vestibule.

:beer::camping: we need a RTT smiley ;)

Here's the ARB Simpson II
