I did some trails last year that beat the top of my truck up pretty good from low hanging branches. It seems like the Maggiolina is the clear choice because of its ease of operation and hard shell. They don't come cheap though. I'm on the lookout for a used one.
Imho, the Maggiolina would be the ones to avoid. Pocking a hole through the shell would be expensive. Eazi-Awn, and ARB (others as well i'm sure) have heavy duty canvas covers for the tents. Plus, the tents are folded up in storage while traveling. Main parts of the tent are protected by the base.
