Jeep camping gear?

Looking for something that blocks off the back of my WK...don't want an entire tent that touches the ground, just something that zips up covering the back if the hatch is open....any ideas or products?

I think you would need to custom make that. Should be easy. Take some old sheets and cut and staple them into the pattern you want, then take your pattern to a canvas shop or shoe repair guy and have them sew the canvass or screen for you.

If you find something Jeep it'll be way overpriced for what it is. Get a roof-top tent. They're much more roomy and comfortable and you don't have to dump your gear out of the back of the jeep.

Jeep also sells expensive Jeep Tent Trailers, they look cool as hell though! Too bad they don't sell them in Canada

Just buy yourself some mesquito net and some PVC pipe and fab something up.

While the Jeep treatment and branding is cool and all, these tent trailers sold by Jeep are WAY overpriced for what they are. If you really want one, I'd suggest getting one from the original manufacturer. The Jeep trailer is the LivinLite QuickSilver 6.0:
http://www.livinlite.com/6.0-overview.php

They are nice trailers. Well built, lightweight aluminum. They have several other models of tent trailers and enclosed trailers. If you can do without the Jeep branding, you can get a lot of different options for less money. Oh, and LivinLite has plenty of dealers up there in Canuckistan.
