Best tent to attach to the rear of my 09 rubi

looking for a tent to attach to the rear of my unlimited rubi

anyone have one of these and would give me some feedback on which one they have and how they like it?

i know mopar makes one for the wrangler, but its not the prettiest

Ive been looking at the SPORTZ SUV TENT with the detachable screen room, but I want to make sure it'll work well with a wrangler:

The Cabelas website has a few of those things; I've never used one.

I have a trailer with a RTT; the trailer is always ready and packed.






I've seen RTT's on Wranglers too and it works pretty well.

Safety fast,

I have always kind of wondered what the point of these are. Why would you want a tent to hook to the back of your jeep?

(just wondering I am not saying it is stupid)

The only way that I see it making sense is if the Jeep is rigged for support; maybe the kids sleep in the Jeep and Mom/Dad in the tent?
Otherwise I agree; why tie your Jeep to the tent?

various reasons:

-can sleep more people
-can keep your supplies off the ground and still protected, without taking up sleeping space
-can turn the jeep on and crank the heat on those cold nights
-access to music/dvd

any reasons not to??

I would just prefer camping without electronics and all that jazz

but that is just me. I always liked the look of the tents though

Ya same, not saying it's a stupid idea at all, but like mattman said, camping is a time to get away from all that "at home" stuff and just enjoy the wilderness!! I guess it is a little different if you have kids for the trip though.

I have one by Jeep. Kinda gimmicky, kinda cool. Here's a pic taken deep, deep in the wilderness:

To be honest, I use this a lot more:

I searched on the name displayed on the trailer and found that the company is from South Africa. They have a link to 'international' dealers and the USA link comes up empty.
