Its not about the journey, but the destination.
For our extended fishing trips we finally broke the code on the best car top tent out there. We found a great supplier in Seattle WA.( https://adventure-ready.com/product-category/rooftop-tents/) for the Kane Klassics car top tent. Tom, the owner is very knowledgeable in all awnings, tents and other gear, all top quality. We selected the Nomad 160 by James Baroud Company. Tom’s a distributor for the west coast. We Drove over 800 miles at highway 65 to 75 mph in solid rain and snow and no leaks under the cover!
The Nomad is the easiest deploying and folding tent system with the added advantage of being able to bring in side the ladder for added security.
We have done some mods that are low cost and unique for gear stowage.
The first mods were net stowage system. The one over the tents inside is for clothing, junk, snacks etc that would other wise clutter out the tent. The net over the ladder entrance are for your shoes, wet rain jacket etc keeping the inside dry and clean. The other user issue is when your camped on a hard surface. As you enter the tent when your weight is off the ladder it will sometimes slide in under the tent. So for road trips I found a shop rubber rug matt keeps that ladder extended. You can find the nets at Walmart for $9.00 and secure with
with any number of hooks and climbing hooks all from, again Walmart! Any questions contact Tom or Kane Klassics.
