Adventure trailers is doing a really nice pop over tent which replaces the JK hard top. Much less $$$ than the Earthroamer.

Last year I picked up a Mombasa RTT from TRD parts 4u on sale for $599.
They normally have it on sale for $699.
I've seen kits and self made tents that cost more.
Great RTT for a great price.

Sure, It's still several hundred bucks, But it can easily be resold used for near the same it cost new.
Concerns about RTT's being top heavy, The Mombasa 9007 is only 100lbs., so no worry.

Here's some pics of it setup and installed on my custom aluminum trailer.

I've always liked the idea of these, but I somehow don't see them holding me and another person. Either way it's largely pointless for an XJ because you can fit an air mattress and two people in the back with the seats down fine anyway.

Anytime I've taken mine camping I've done that and set a canopy up to run from one side out to sit under.

I have the ARB tent, seeing the pictures the framework, mattress and design are pretty much identical.The tents are very stable and comfortable so no worries there. LT1CJ7 what a nice looking rig! and I love the trailer, excellent.

Thanks Rich,
Most of the tents that are manufactured in China are from the same plant, just branded with different names.
I checked out the ARB @ $1,400 and it was the same except for the fabric colors.
So the $599 Mombasa was a no brainer for me.

Jeep Roof Top Tents

There has never been a company willing to step up for Jeep owners like Bigfoot Jeep Roof Top Tents. It's nice when companies are proud of their product and know well how to sell it but what are they willing to do for you! The Bigfoot Tent Crew sponsors teams and events in the community and offers "real" discounts. Any member from www.jeepforum.com can discount their Jeep Roof Top Tent orders by 10%.

Man I am glad you listed that website df. I'm in the market for another rtt. I had a cvt and it was just too much trouble to set up and take down by myself. I'm leaning towards a magnolia but it looks like Bigfoot has a comparable unit for a better price
