Tell me what yall think .... I think it could be a cool setup, mabye a bit top heavy, I don't think you can take it off, and I haven't been able to find a price yet. :confused0006:

I think i would rather just tow a small tent trailer or bring a tent with a small heater and cooler with ice.

My cooler keeps shit cold for 5 days so its usually not an issue.

Nice little toy there but I think the shine would wear off quick. I am sure the price would be way higher than having a good lifted locked jeep and a nice camper to pull behind.

Looks cool for what it is :dontknow: but I can imagine the price is high.:eek: :eek: :eek: As the previous posts suggest, there are a MILLION other options to achieve the same function; truck and camperette??:dontknow: Looks like a high maintenance, more show that go and call me old fashioned but I just don't think "camerizing" a Jeep is a good thing. [16] [16] Similar Jeep with a trailer, even one of them "done up" trailers with the same type of tent would be better/ cheaper. Then you can leave the junk at the site and get serious.

I like it.Its a step farther than the set up i have seen on a few landrovers.You would need to be a dedicated camper that has some money though.

I don't think its a jeep thing. My thoughts are a real jeep has no doors, or roof. As far as slleeping quarters, thats were ever you pass out, with luck you make it to your tent. To eachs own.
