Default WTB: Roof Top Tent (~$1000 to spend)

Hi All,

I've been back and forth about this for me and my wife's long Oregon/Cali trip and future trips. And I think it would make things a lot easier.

I have up to $1000 fund (maybe just a little bit more for a great deal on a nice tent) for a roof top tent. Unfortunately, I'm a little late to order one......I think. I need to have it mounted and ready to rock and roll by the 12th of sept.

It needs to hold at least 2 people, and be in good shape ready to roll.

any leads are appreciated!

thanks,
Jackson

Finding a roof top tent for a 1000 is gonna be tough. There is a guy on Colorado Springs craigslist with an older eezi-awn tent mounted to a trailer that he's trying to sell separately for 1500. Might be able to talk him down because there's a burn hole in one of the screens. Worth a shot anyway. Type eezi-awn in the search bar, couldn't figure out how to paste a link with my iPhone.

I've emailed this guy twice with no response. I've also emailed about the one in Longmont, also no response. I don't have a problem spending up to 1500 if a good enough deal comes along. Say an eazi awn like the one on c-list

Thanks for the reply, keep em coming

Romer on this forum hinted at selling his this past weekend. Not sure if he was serious or what he'd ask for it but its a lead

I've called everyone I can think of, everything is 2weeks out min. Thanks everyone for the leads I'm still checking around. I'd rather buy used, I'll entertain anything.

Worst case is that I'll pitch a tent

I have been thinking about selling my mombassa....nothing wrong with it..fixed some of the stuff that was wrong.

its not fancy...but it works for exactly what it was made for..been on a few long trips with it..john took it on a west coast long ass trip too..

I am too lazy to go find the thread where I bought it..but if you search something like "bolt an expedition"..you can probably find it here
where I bought it from nakman.

pm me if interested

Edit..k I found it..
bolt an expedition was indeed tims phrase lol
