Default local ARB Simpson III for sale

http://www.expeditionportal.com/foru...n-Rooftop-Tent

here is Kurts review. He sells them

http://forum.ih8mud.com/cruiser-outf...-top-tent.html

This is the RTT I have and the one I took on the maze. I had a problem with the zippers and ARB sent me a new cover for free even though it was two years old and the zippers were not even broken

Lots of improvements. The review link I posted is from Kurt who sells these. This is also the tent he uses

If the review doesn't cover the differences, you can search Mud. I remember reading through all these before I pulled the trigger

I also have the zip on room for below although I haven't used it yet

Yeah, I looked pretty hard a while back, then got worried I wouldn't use it enough and the hassle of storing, installing, removing. I guess the bug is still there.....
I don't have the luxury of hanging it from the garage ceiling like you, so that's been a big factor for me. I'm at about 2" of clearance from the roof rack right now.

$750 - the plastic is cracked. These are good tents. The new Technitop I had was a great tent.

He added that little tidbit this afternoon along with the price drop to $750
